I too, bought this because of the great reviews. I tend to like powder foundations for the summer. This holds up most of the day but it doesn't do a thing to enhance my complexion. I know it's...

The best powder foundation I've found for my older oily skin. Covers pores, doesn't get stuck in wrinkles and lasts all day. Love it!

Hg foundation powder for my combo- older skin! I've tried most powders - JI, Armani, d/s, and this is the best. I'm nc15 & Ultra Cameo is a match, package lasts awhile too.

Make up alley really is a great site. I never would have known about the Merle Norman cake foundation. It really covers well without caking just like the reviews stated.

There were so many positive reviews about this powder, I thought I'd try it out. It does not control oil. At least on me. One can't keep re-powdering their face with this; there's too much...
