I hate always putting a liquid foundation on my face so I was looking more into powders and mineral foundations etc. I remember I used this back in high school and I dont know why I stopped. As Im getting older, I am becoming more health conscious and I dont like liquids anymore on my face. I have been breaking out from trying different face washes, and foundations. I ended up buying this powder foundation again and I LOVE it! It gives me a full coverage. It doesnt make me shiny and its so easy to take anywhere with me if I need little touch ups throughout the day. It pretty much stays on without needing any touchups.
