I have purchased this product twice then switched to Laura Mercier's loose powder but went back and purchased MAC's Prep+Prime loose powder for the third time. I am sure there are better products...

Fairly good powder. A little too opaque for me, though. Mattified my skin extremely well and does not make the flakies in between my eyebrows and chin obvious. This made me look like a ghost in...
