I think for $16 this is a very good setting powder. The one major drawback I find is the packaging - there's absolutely no way to get the last bits of powder out because of the weird way it disposes it (you basically close the lid, turn it upside down, turn it right side up, open it, and a little blob of powder has been deposited). But besides that, the powder is very fine, colorless, and does a good job of keeping oils at bay all day. I pair it with a matte foundation for extra matte goodness. It also helps my powder bronzer and blush go on nicely with no muddiness from the foundation. I apply it with a fluffy brush in a stippling motion.
