    The powder comes with a soft brush, but I have always just used a Q-tip to spot apply and smooth the product where I want it. I prefer my skin to show where it can. People say I look much younger than I am (I'll be 40 this year), and I really believe this powder is part of the reason. It hides my blemishes and even seems to help them heal more quickly. I often sleep in this powder, really almost every night. I exercise in it. I can not imagine living without it. When I was in my 30's and 20's I applied liquid foundations and caked on powder and I was always careful for my face to bump into anything and leave makeup on it like when I would give a hug and leave my face on someone's shirt... no good. For at least 8 years I've been using this with just some Almay eye shadow and mascara. Sometimes I use red lipstick as a blush or to tint my lips. People often think it's all natural, and it feels natural. I don't even think about or realize that I'm wearing makeup now. Still, it gives my skin a glow and it boosts my confidence when I know people aren't staring at marks on my face or my otherwise tired looking eyes. I sometimes reapply it middle of the day, just a touch up. I also can dab my face with tissue if I'm shiny and not have it lift off. This is the one product in my life that I hope I never have to go look for another one because it is no longer available. One container lasts me eight months to ten months I think... haven't really thought about it. I use Dove soap and Oil of Olay lotion. The powder sticks and stays better if my face has been freshly cleaned and moisturized beforehand. I also apply Clean and Clear Persa-gel when needed, but then dab the lotion over it after it dries to help the powder stick. So there's my routine. Good luck!

    I really like that this stuff does not cause break-outs. It also covers well, but after a few hours it seems to wear off. When I used it over a very thin layer of lotion, it cakes after a few hours, but does not if used with an oil-free moisturizer.
    I would recmomend it to someone who already has nice skin.
    Also, I used my own brushes. The brush is not so great.

      My teenage daughter uses this product -- QUICK N EASY to apply before school -- stays on all day -- it is the ONLY make-up/powder she will use ... and we tried all types -- from loose powder to compacts to liquids.

        I like this powder, and this color is great for my super white skin. The brush is useless, get a different kabuki style brush; the bristles started coming out during first use. This powder covers up blemishes and evens out my skin after using foundation.

            If you like brush-on mineral sunscreen, this will give you an airbrushed look (will minimize imperfections, blemishes, wrinkles) and an SPF of 30 (the Translucent Light and Translucent Medium colors, the other shades are only SPF 15) and it's a fraction of the price of Colorescience SPF 30 Mineral Powder. Really been happy with the quality for a much more affordable option!

            Because this is a powder base, I apply concealer first. In the summer this product is great because you don't really sweat it off nor does it completely fall off when you swim. Just don't touch your face!!! That is when the it doesn't last. I am VERY prone to breakouts and this helps me conceal without looking like I am trying to cover something up.

                I've been using this product for several years now. The Translucent Light shade is perfect for my skin. This product works well on its own, but I typically use it over a liquid foundation to sop up any oil. The powder provides a nice finish, camouflaging pores, redness, etc. I've even had people comment on my perfectly clear skin while wearing this product!

                As someone with light skin who suffered from acne & dry skin as a teen, this powder was a God-send. As an adult, I still love the powder. You won't regret buying this.

                  First started in 2008 and haven't looked back since! They don't sell this in SG so I have to buy online and this is a fantastic product! I don't use anything else anymore.

                  I had oily, acne prone skin and alot of foundation broke me up. I saw a significant improvement in my skin after 6 months and pimples stopped appearing. It's lightweight so i don't feel like my skin is clogged. It's very affordable, very easy to apply, colour doesn't oxidized or darkened and absolute value for money. Downside is that it has no oil control properties so i touch up every 3 hours or so.

                    This makeup is great. It doesn't cause my skin to become red or break out. It's a light coverage that looks natural but still evens out the complexion. I am very fair-skinned and it is so hard for me to find a makeup that blends in and looks natural but this is the one! It looks like I'm not wearing makeup at all. It just makes my skin look...clearer.
