My Opinion:
The weather's getting warmer, and I'd usually prefer powder over liquid foundations on warmer days, and since I'm a huge fan of minerals, I've decided to try this out.
I've already been using loose minerals for several years, and although I do love the finish, I'm seriously not very fond of loose powder, they are just too messy to work with, so the idea of a pressed mineral powder was really tempting.
When I got this in the mail, I was really excited, because the packaging was just gorgeous and the color matches me perfectly, however, after using it twice I've concluded that it has got close to no coverage and I've only been able to use it as a setting powder.
