This is a fairly good, but not perfect, loose powder. I think it is a very good option for a drugstore product. It blends well, doesn't have a chalky look, and I don't find that it gets cakey looking in general with most foundations. Really, overall I am pleased with it. I apply it differently depending on what foundation I am using and what finish I am looking for. Some days I want a more flawless, "make-upy" look, some days I want a more natural look. When I want a more natural look, a fluffy brush works great. Using a slightly damp sponge (the same one I used to apply my foundation) gives me a fuller coverage look and works really well. I also have used the Beauty Blender powder puff. I don't like that as much with this powder for some reason. I would say I like this better than Maybelline Fit Me loose powder, which I thought was pretty good, or probably any other drugstore loose powder. I'm still just looking for that perfect loose powder at the drugstore level that will give me that perfect, doll-like finish. Maybe it just doesn't exist, but with new products coming out all of the time, I can't help but keep trying.
