I have since moved on to Silk Naturals' foundation, but this Start to Finish Rice Powder Sunlight is the one EDM product that i will continue to buy. Its also the only full-sized product that I've used up completely.
I love the rice powder - it is very finely milled, and melds seamlessly into my skin over any foundation or base. The powder imparts a polished finish and improves the clarity of my skin. It does not tinge my skin yellow as the powder is actually invisible on. Its also wonderful used alone as a light dusting over sunscreen.
I use this both as a primer and as a finishing powder. It works well either way, and I love the versatility. It's oil control ability isn't too bad - my makeup can last at least 3-4 hours before oil breaks through over here in humid, sunny, singapore. Without any primer / finishing powder, any mmu I use begins shining in less than an hour;s time.
Anyway, what i love most about this product is its shade. The 'sunlight' shade is practically invisible on my Asian / Chinese skin. It is even more translucent than, say, EDM's tinted silk dust (discontinued), the finishing dust in soft bronze or the translucent version, both of which i own, and indeed, far more translucent than those 'translucent' or beige / yellow-toned conventional loose powders.
This is my HG - a truly great product that's also a multitasker. I even bring this around for touch-ups. If EDM ever discontinues this, I'll definitely pile 12 of these in the $50 kit to stock up.
