I was able to grab a mini version of this powder, as well as a mini of the Hourglass veil primer for a good deal on Ebay. This is very nice! I can't say I see anything super special compared to other loose powders, but I don't normally need to set my face with powder until later in the day when I get oily, as my skin tends to lean on the dry side when I wear foundation. This does absorb beautifully, doesn't look cakey, (I don't need much) and it also doesn't settle into my large creases or look too ghostly/white (as other "translucent" claiming powders tend to do). I don't think this oil controls, but I don't rely on a setting powder to do that. My only gripe is that I wish it came in a pressed version, as I HATE loose powders. They get everywhere, are messy, can apply in clumps on your brush, etc.. so that's why I rated the packaging lower. I would repurchase, but probably as another mini size, as powders seem to last forever and this is pricey for a loose powder (and if you don't prefer loose powder, it's a pricey pain in the butt). I am thinking of trying one of the NYX banana pressed powders -- cheaper, and I'd love the yellow undertone but they have some nasty reviews!
