I have to say I'M IN LOVE WITH THIS FRESH FACED POWDER! Having African-American Oily/Afro-Cuban and Japanese to combo skin I am constantly on the search for a powder that keeps my make-up not only in place but my skin looking matte, fresh and clear for hours upon hours if not all day! This powder does exactly that AND it's reasonably priced and comes in an array of shades that match a plethera of skin tones! My complexion is right between brown and caramel and the Light Golden matched my tone perfectly! While shopping and searching for the right shade, this compact does allow you to flip the top and compare to see which tone would compliment your skin the best. I decided to try this product out during the last days of summer and even in 82 degree weather it lept my skin looking fresh, smooth and definitley matte! IT'S A WINNER! The amount of product you get for the price is absolutley worth the buy! It also comes with a soft makeup applicator sponge and nice sized mirror included in the compact that's perfecr for touch ups on the go! I found the best way to use it is to apply with the sponge right as your foundation is drying, then go over the applied areas with a powder brush to ad a little more if needed and even out the powder application. I will definitley be stoking up on this Covergirl QUEEN Collection pressed Matte powder and will be recommending to all my girls of color out there! Especially if you need a bit of oil control or have oily skin. I'm adding this to my list of make up must haves! I'm impressed and being a picky make up girl that doesn't happen often! This powder has buildale coverage and I've even used it alone with ZERO ashy undertones, just to freshen my face during a quick outing to the grocery store! On a scale of 1-10 (1 being the lowest and 10 the highest) I'm giving this miracle powder a 9.5. Remember when using this wonder powder to blend up into your hairline, down into your nek and across over your ears to give you an even well blended look! What can I say...I'M IN LOVE!
