OMG YES. This works so well. I can't believe I ever used other powders. This is so matte and the coverage is so good. It balances out my foundation flawlessly. I just bought another and when the dude at Sephora said he thinks they may have ran out, I was like "oh girl, no. not today. I need this powder" He went in the back and found me one. CRACK!

This is probably the best powder I've used for my mostly oily, sensitive skin. I've been using this powder for almost 4 years now and the formula has changed but it's still the best in terms of oil-control and one of the best for smoothing out my large pores.Pros:-best oil-control I've used in a powder (old formula was even better at oil-control but still beats other powders in the new formulation)-smooths out texture, lines and pores very nicely (I see a huge difference in the way my pores look when I use this versus other powders, one of the best powders for this purpose)-gives a super smooth and silky feel to your skin. bronzer, blush and highlight glide and blend over it nicely-sets foundation really well even with a small amount, leaves no tackiness behind from foundation-lightweight-very finely milled-non-irritating, doesn't break me out-makes makeup last amazingly (does this better than other powders. makes it very resistant to water and sweat)-gives an airbrushed almost flawless, soft-focus effect-cruelty free, veganCons:-can be drying/dehydrating (but not as much as the old formula. This powder is much better for oily, combo skin)-not the best for setting concealer around your eyes (only due to it being a bit too mattifying, I prefer Nars Light Reflecting loose powder for my undereyes)-cannot "bake" with it (you should avoid baking with all silica-based powders to prevent flash back)-can leave behind a somewhat powdery look if not blended in properly-can emphasize dryness and flakiness (if you prep the skin well it won't happen)Back when my skin was very dry, I disliked this powder because it was way too mattifying on my skin. Now, that my skin is mostly oily again, I love it. I try a lot of powders from high end to drugstore, both silica and talc based and I always come back to this. It's smooth, lasts and controls oil, blurs pores, lightweight, sets foundation perfectly and gives a really nice finish. It does everything I need in a powder. Most powders either look really beautiful on the skin but it doesn't last or it controls oil and lasts well but doesn't look very nice on. This does it all.
