I recently bought this powder foundation after my favourite - infallibale powder foundation by L'Oreal was discontinued. Unfortunately, this stuff is a far cry from the much cheaper L'Oreal powder - it is absolutely awful. Like every other sane person I use sunscreen; this product in color 2 beige will turn into a very unnatural brick-like orange if you use it on sunscreen (this is probably due to oxidation). So, I tried to powder my face with sheer powder before applying the compact foundation but than it turns out blotchy: it does not stick to the oily bits of my skin and forms orangy streaky lines where my skin is drier. Moreover, it does hardly cover up my rosacea and discolouration, it settles in my pores and last but not least, it is not matte AT ALL after an hour or so. Rimmel Stay matte powder -which, again is a lot cheaper,- does a much better job at keeping my cheeks matte.
I should've listened to my instinct not to buy this product since the Collistar products I bought in the past were also very bad. So, be warned!!!

A great foundation powder. It conceals dark circles under eyes, blemishes and dry skin patches. Helps with oiliness. It's invisible on skin and blends well even when applied even with a sponge it came with.
I have a very sensitive skin, and this powder doesn't cause breakouts. Oh, and it provides better coverage if used wet.
