I bought this powder a few months ago because I read that there is no sense for powder to be expensive. The highest I've ever gone on a powder is $36.00 and that was because I could not find a color for fair skin that didn't go chalky,stick in 'the lines!'or turn color.I tried this because I figured that the price was so right not much to lose I could always give it to my daughter who,like her grandma is a 'glamham' nails and all. I'am not. This turned out to be a very good product for touch ups and in general use to achieve the matte look I love and need! I can't go shiny sparkly I have enough of that on my own. I'd like to thank all the reviewers for their helpful suggestions--I'm an ol' gal but I love to learn and experiment.Great product great value great texture and color.Thanks!
