This is really working out for me right now. I used this years ago and remembered liking it. Ulta just had it for $25 plus a 20% off coupon, so it was a no brainer spur of the moment buy. (Normally it's $36)
I'm always trying out powder foundations—if you're as into them as I am, you know that finding a good one is a special kind of challenge. But the whole appeal of a powder foundation is speed & ease, and so many just do not offer that. You have to buff like Daniel-san, prep-prime-spray, set with something else or else they'll settle into any recess you have in your skin (a pore, a line, a trace of existential dread). Or they leave your skin flat & lightless. Or wear off within 15 min. Or, and this happens more often than not, counterintuitively leave your face an oil slick one hour into the day.
Anyway, this one is worthy. I can achieve a solid medium coverage with it alone, and obviously there's even more coverage if I layer something underneath. I can also play with the coverage depending on the brush I use, as well as the finish and longevity depending on whatever prep/set methods I go for. Application is QUICK and easy, and finish is satiny but not mica-sparkle-ball "glowy" (or a flat matte, it's not chalky at ALL). It also has lasting power on its own! And decent oil control! And I have oily skin (and it's June). The one thing I'd recommend is to make sure your skin is properly moisturized. I haven't noticed it clinging to dry spots, but I'll report back come winter. I just love the way mineral powders fuse with your skin when you use an oil underneath. Bronzer/contour/blush/highlighter all look AMAZING on top of it. Honestly, this foundation's best qualities are ease of application, finish, and lasting power.
No breakouts, no other bad effects on skin. Neutral light-medium is a great match for me, which is weird because I am olive skinned and getting tanner by the minute (no matter how hard I try not to). So I think the shades run dark. Also, I am not 100% satisfied with any of my brushes with this foundation, so I need to shop around.
Cons: it's expensive when not on sale, shade range is limited-ish, and I don't really like the mesh thingy covering the powder. I just find myself haphazardly stabbing at it with my brush until I get some powder out. Very imprecise. Possibly my fault. It's not a deal-breaker though.
