This loose powder is very dry, therefore expect a lot is "lost" to the air and my clothes, and my vanity counter during the application process. I use a different brush to apply, as the one that comes with does not hold the powder very well. Coverage is fine, although I do need to layer it to get a more flawless look. It makes my face feel dry. The color is good. My skin is very fair and this does blend well. I have been trying different brands as the one I used prior was discontinued, and I think I will keep looking, as this is just not quite right for me.
I have tried a lot of mineral makeup. Highend to highstreet and everything in between! This mineral makeup is by far the best I have tried. It looks flawless and feels great on, you don't even notice your wearing foundation. The translucent shades have less coverage and might be more suitable for a setting powder. The undertones in this range seem very neutral so they will work on many complexions. I find the most impressive thing is the staying power. This makeup never seperates or wears off and I have a rather oily t-zone. I use a dense brush to apply the minerals, and if you use a setting spray, it melts into your skin and looks amazing!!! The product also lasts forver even if you use a lot on a daily basis as I do.
