Picked up the shade 002.
This shade blends and diffuses into the skin & since it gives very little coverage
it only leaves a tint of the shade on your skin.
Is very finely milled. Blends very well. Gives a very airbrushed & natural look. Does not look cakey. Since its a setting powder it does work well when you top this on a full coverage foundation. It does work well with other base products like foundation & concealers as well as when topped on by blush & highlighter. This will not cover any blemishes or acne marks.This does not look chalky. Due to the sheer coverage & fine texture is very easy to do touch ups as well as it helps in giving a matte look and takes care of any oiliness. This easily lasts for around 3 – 4 hrs on a bare face & 6 -7 hrs on full face of makeup after which my T Zone did get oily.
Does not cake up or crease. It mattifies but yet gives a very natural look. I have combination skin & it did not dry out my skin at all. The fine texture and sheer coverage is perfect for baking under the eyes. This powder does not contain any shine or sheen. I did apply it all over my face & it works fine. As the range is called photo ready, took a few pics with flash on & surprisingly it did have a bit of a flash back. If your planning to bake or layer the powder on &decide to take some pics, you might want to keep this in mind.

This product is pretty versatile as it works well as an every day powder for your face and yet works beautifully as a setting powder for your full face of makeup as well. Yes it does give only sheer coverage for which you can use a CC or a BB cream as a base.
Owing to the high price point, the flash back it gives & no Ingredient list on the packaging I will not be purchasing this again.
