I can't remember how I came about getting my first compact of this. I want to say it was a present but it is the kind of thing I'd buy for myself.
The best way to think of this is as a highlighter. In the beginning I tried to use it as a regular pressed powder and let me tell you that is so not flattering. You start looking like you're Data from Star Trek. (And I love Data but I flush too easily to rock that look.)
Then dust this on sparingly. I do a couple runs on the cheeks and one or two on the forehead, nose and chin. And then hit up my chest and neck too so I'm ~sparkly~. Well I'm not too sparkly in photos but it is there in real life. And as you can see it also kind of soft focuses my face a bit!
It is a fun little addition to make-up, especially for evening looks or for special occasions.
Very cute, secure and durable.
Nothing too special. It I could use it in place of my regular powder instead of with it then we'd have something.
For what it is the price isn't too bad. It lasts just about forever since you need so little but $27 for a fun little addition is a bit rich for my tastes.
