this is the best powder, I got in in natural and use it as a foundation powder and it matches my skintone and makes it even and beautiful. I really like this over high end brand foundation powders. I love the price, not the packaging, but I keep it laying flat so it doesn't spill, can't travel with it, but I don't apply powder when I'm out anyway, it stays on all day. I am glad I found this and will be buying more.
I bought this because my regular foundation formulation has changed from 16 hour to 25 hour coverage, and it has a paint smell which CANNOT be good...so I ditched that and had been using the sample of light pink from Lush, I didn't love it at first, but bought it anyway and since then have noticed that I really like the coverage it gives me, it covers my redness really well and it's very dewy for my dry skin. It's a good formulation and it's very natural. Lush never disappoints me, it always exceeds my expectations every time...their products are miracle working. I use Dior mineral powder to set the foundation. It's very nice. I can even go to bed with it on and my face does not react in the morning ( i was lazy a few times and forgot to wash my face) !

I have tried another popular mineral powder (BE) and it gave me pimples all over my face within 3 days....so the Sephora rep gave me a nice sample of this, I tried it the next day and I was in the store that night buying the full size product...I wanted a good quality powder, to help with coverage and to mattify my look, setting my makeup. I really like the finish, but it's easy to over do it. I sprinkle a small amount and use my stippling brush and dust it all over...if I use more than a few sprinkles it looks like I powdered my face. I know it costs more than CC but I like this better than CC....I would like to try a nice eyeshadow palette from Dior next. I am new to Dior. I have dry sensitive skin and this does not make me look dry or settle into dry spots ...it tones down redness and I am not having any problems with this formulation at all...so happy!
