I have been using this powder since I first started wearing makeup at like 15 years old. It does wonders to my skin! I don't think I'll ever switch. I have always loved Clinique for making a wide range of shades, especially for pale skin like mine. I never get that oxidized orange look from this powder, and it lasts very well on my oily combo skin all day. Huge fan! I am obsessed with my high cost designer liquid foundation from another brand but I will never change from this powder.Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
