I'm not big on cosmetics, but for special occassions I will use pressed powder, lip gloss and eyeliner. This pressed powder, no matter what shade I get does not evenly match my skin tone and it's clear that I'm using a powder on my face. It does last long, like many CoverGirl products, and it's affordable enough. I also have had no allergic reactions to this product and that's a plus. There are better powders out there, but this is not horrible for what you get.
