I think this has been reformulated and definitely undergone a packaging improvement. The first time I bought this was from TJ Maxx and the applicator and brush were horrendous. The brush was awful and the powder leaked all the time. I had to transfer it to an empty finishing powder container with a sifter top and carry around a separate brush. The powder would also sting a bit if I started to sweat and left a really heavy white caste on the face. I tried this again at Sephora recently after noticing that the tester brush applicator looked slightly different than the one I had bought previously. I have persistent melasma on my cheeks and forehead from my last pregnancy that's improved quite a lot but requires me to be pretty diligent with sunscreen. Using this for a finishing powder would save me a lot of hassle for reapplication during the day and give me added protection. This time around the brush is much softer and applies well and the formula doesn't sting when I sweat. I didn't have to transfer this to another container so this is portable and convenient. This sets makeup well as a finishing powder and doesn't make me look like a ghost. I think its overpriced but this is a far better product than the one I tried a couple of years ago. *update* I've been using this daily for a month and have zero complaints. Even though sometimes it seems like there's not much on the brush it somehow dispenses just the right amount to set my makeup or touch up. It's comfortable on and leaves no white caste at all. I wouldn't use it as a primary sunscreen but as a touch up for added protection over makeup this works great because let's get real unless you're at the beach or maybe an outdoor sporting event, few people are willing to ruin their makeup to apply liquid sunscreen every couple of hours.
