I absolutely LOVE this powder, it really does even out my skin tone, I use the sponge that came with it, it can be a little tricky as in putting a lot on at one time, but it still comes out looking great. This never feels cakey, or heavy, and my skin never reacts poorly to this. I was having severe redness on my face for quite some time and this covered it up so well, and you don't need a lot.. this is going to last you a while because a little really goes a long way. It does give a natural luminous kind of look to your face, so if you're looking for something thats super matte this isn't for you. But it does give a very natural look, it's easy to blend and apply. I'd highly recommend this.
