I've been a loyal wearer of that famous mineral makeup brand for 8 years now. I've always loved the way it lasted all day and helped covered up redness. I've also enjoyed the fact it was adaptable to my very fair skin. Unfortunately its very expensive and I've been looking for something to take the place of the Mineral Veil, which I typically wear under my foundation because of my oily skin. I gave this a try, and although I'm not crazy about it when I take cost in to consideration it is a very viable alternative. It is a little too yellow for my liking (I'm using translucent light). It makes my skin appear a little darker. On the other hand the yellow is good for neutralizing some skin imperfections. It does seem to last a very long time during the day, which is nice. I never have to reapply. It does also help minimize the appearance of pores. If you do decide to purchase this product, do yourself a favor and invest in a good makeup brush. The one it comes with is awful.
