I wasn't really wanting to get this because I do not wear mineral foundations, but since I got the tinted moisturizer, I figured I would try it.
Well.. I am not going to sugar coat this in any way. I felt this product was a complete waste of money to buy. Again its the tear shaped packaging which is pretty bulky. I don't tend to read a lot of reviews before buying a product because I don't want anything persuading me one way or another. Well, this time I should have read some!
This coverage was sheer to none. I don't see the point in it at all. I even tried using it as a setting powder and did not like it much more than on its own. It just did not apply good, did not blend well and was just basically non existent.
There are tons of other drug store mineral make up lines that are much much better and the same goes for finishing powders.
If I were you, I would leave this one sitting on the shelf. Its just not worth the steep price for a drug store product.
