Great everyday base!
I had been looking for a pressed mineral powder because I was finding even wearing a tinted moisturiser everyday was annoying my skin. I hated the mess of a loose powder (having used BareMinerals in Medium Beige, I knew I wasn't good at keeping it tidy) so I really wanted something that I could carry around, apply quickly but also provide a good everyday base for the rest of my makeup. I took a risk with the shade and opted for Nude after looking around online. At first it looked a touch light but it oxidises slightly to become the perfect match. The good thing about this is that it doesn't look powdery on the skin or feel like much either but it provides enough coverage to even out tone. You will need a concealer if you have anything you want to hide though. I love the pouch included too - it's zip up so your compact won't roll out of it like it would from a traditional one. Love the UFO compact too!

Perfect colour, good texture!
I tried many, many powder foundations and mineral powder foundations because my long time favorite 'Shiseido Powdery Foundation' in colour 'Natural Light Ivory' does not exist anymore (well at least not in Germany).
Finally I found a worthy replacement! This is really the first powder / mineral foundation that does not look chalky on my pale skin or is too dark / too brown / too yellow. The colour 'Shell' matches perfect! The texture is easy to apply and makes my skin feel comfortable, though I have got VERY sensitive skin.
I give only 4 stars because it does not last the whole day. I have to 'restore' it every 3 - 4 hours but I am fine with that.
