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 been on the hunt for a bronzer that isn't shimmering but still gives that nice glow to my face. Tarte met my goal. Absolutely obsessed with this bronzer.

This is very lightweight and requires no reapplication. I love the flawless look it provides without being cakey. It does a great job minimizing pore size too.

This powder is amazing! It's so thin that it doesn't make the face look cakey & it really sets makeup, helps prolong the wear of foundation & help decrease oil

This came with a set I bought at Ulta, it is a small sample size. I like to use it to set my under eye concealer, and it works very good. Will buy full size.

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?
