Cons
–Scent, very strong fragrance

–Not cruelty free

Final Thoughts
All powders will slightly mattify, some more than others, and that can look bad on dry skin. This powder is perfect for us dry skinned gals. It has a very airbrushed, soft focus effect and doesn’t look cakey or accentuate dryness. The scent is strong, like it is in most L’Oreal products, but it doesn’t linger and I can deal with it. I hate that it’s hard to find in stores. I only find it at Wal Mart which sucks. I don’t know how well this would work for keeping oils at bay so keep that in mind if you have oily skin. It’s my new favorite, go to loose setting powder.

Final Thoughts
–I wore this with my beloved Rimmel foundation and it didn’t cake up at all. Then, I tested it with the Colour Pop foundation which was a disaster. It was too much matte for my dry skin.
–I think you have normal or normal/oily skin, you would like this. If you have dry skin, you can make it work, but you have to use the right combination of primer, foundation, and setting spray to make it work.
–It’s not a bad product, it’s just not a good product for me.
