This product has often been compared to MAC's Studio Fix Powder (and some reviewers even say it's BETTER than MAC). I'm NC20 and I've tried 3 shades now: Light Beige (too pale and yellow, so requires more bronzer), Natural (perfect), and Deep Natural (perfect on application, but a tad too orange after it oxidizes). Pros: - I LOVE the texture of this powder: makes my troublesome, acne-prone, pockmarked skin feel like SATIN - Great staying power: lasts all day long, which is rare when it comes to powders Cons: - Oxidizes after a few hours (but MOST powders oxidize on my oily skin, so...) - Less coverage than MAC's Studio Fix Powder, but at least this one doesn't get cakey on me - The flip-top lid is really flimsy...afraid it will snap off any moment now - Eucalyptus and clove scent: reminds me of Cover Girl powders back in the 90's. I'd prefer if it were slightly floral instead. - Difficult to find a great shade match because the names and color swatches online aren't reliable - Hard to find online from US retailers Despite the long list of cons, YES I'm still giving it 4 lippies, and YES I'd repurchase. It's no longer available on Amazon, but I'll keep looking!
