The N.Y.C. Smooth Mineral Loose Foundation Powder is a great product, but it is not perfect. I use it more as a loose powder to use on top of foundation. It does not quite have the coverage I like in a foundation, so I do not use it by itself. The finish is really good - it is matte enough to take away the shine and give my liquid foundation that polished look, but it is not so heavy that it looks cakey or too matte and flat. Of course the best thing about N.Y.C. Smooth Mineral Loose Foundation Powder is that it is CHEAP! The product is not high end or super fancy, but it gets the job done and lasts for a long time. The "mini Kabuki brush" that comes with it is not worth using. I use a different fluffy brush that I have. The brush is coarse and way too small too use on your whole face. But once you ditch the brush the product is really good. And you just can't beat the price! Overall this is a product I'll keep using.
