This goes perfectly with my other Tarte products. Applies smooth and evenly. After it is applied, you can't notice oily spots or even dry patches. It is definitely a must have!

Love how this blurs everything out. I used it over my foundation or cc cream and it makes it matte and smooth. Love that it doesn't show on the skin or seem powdery.

This is the best mattifying powder. It doesn't take much product to give an amazing airbrushed, light feeling, look. It seriously makes you look amazing without feeling like you have a ton of product on your face.

This is my favorite powder especially on hot days. I have combination skin and this powder keeps the oil at bay without drying out my skin. Must have for beach days.

This is my absolute favorite pressed powder I've used. It's well worth the price. A little goes a long way and it gives great coverage and a gorgeous matte finish.

I have a pretty oily T-zone and tend to get cakey around my nose and forehead if I apply too much powder. Does this powder get cakey easily?
