        Love ❤️ this even in Az, it still holds up better than the humid heat of Arkansas!! I use my own Face Serum before applying since my skin is dry and my Serum helps it blend better and last longer than before!!!

                    I wanted a break from heavy liquids that seem to melt off and clog my pores making them huge. I have oily skin & large pores. This is the first mineral powder I tried. I went back and got the matte one too. It feels so light, doesn't rub off on everything and doesn't break me out. It looks smooth but my skin still looks like skin if that makes sense! I will say that if you have dark/deep skin with old acne marks that are very dark that you will need to conceal those with a dot of concealer.

                      Hi, I have been using medium C25 and would like one shade darker for summer. I have cool skin but wonder if I should get a neutral color instead of cool to cover redness. What do you suggest?
