I usually used pressed powder to set my makeup but after watching several YouTube videos,I decided to replace it with a loose powder
in mac store,I saw mac prep&prime CC loose powder and decided to buy it in spot.I chose it in lavender shade(illuminate) because I thought it's the best one for my pale skin.SA told that it will cancel yellowish,dull undertone of my skin and make my skin,specially my dark cycles look brighter
It's priced 40$ here and there's just 9 grams of product in the jar so it was an expensive purchase.luckily I'm 100% happy with it
First time I was hesitant to put it on my skin but then I saw that it's almost transparent on skin.just if I apply too much product on one place,it gives pink undertone to my skin
I use it with damp or dry beauty blender and it works like magic on my prevents my T-zone from looking oily but doesn't make my dry cheeks,look more gives my skin a very flawless,airbrushed finish and doesn't look too much dry or powdery or doesn't even look bad under flash light of camera
I didn't expect to love it this spreads smoothly on face and makes my skin look even and velvety and fixes my foundation and concealer and at the same time,I feel my skin looks less tired and doesn't feel heavy and doesn't clog my pores or break me down
I don't know how could I live without this loose powder,I can't anymore.I will definitely repurchase but I don't think I'm going to run out of it anytime soon

So far, so good! I've been using this for about a week. I know that it's supposed to correct red tones in the complexion, but I bought it to "liven" up my NC40 skin with a hint of warm yellow tones. I'm giving it 4 lippies for now and will update it if I need to after a few more weeks of use.

Finely milled
Doesn't make me look "chalky" or "ashy"
Adds just a hint of soft yellow to my complexion
Sets makeup well

Can settle in fine lines or emphasize dry spots if not sprayed with makeup setting spray after application

Overall, I like the effect that this powder gives me but I will also try Ben Nye Banana Powder to see if I like it better.

EDIT 5/26/14: This broke me out. I switched to Banana Powder, which I love!
