I do not like the feel of foundation on my face...I use this powder as my foundation and use Laura Gellar's Balance and Brighten over it. This treatment powder really evens out my skintone and my skin never feels oily or has a shine. It doesn't feel like you're wearing anything yet covers like a foundation and lasts all day. I love this stuff...like all Dr.Denese's products!! I don't know what I'd do without you!
