I have oily skin and despise having to carry around multiple make up kits to keep my face from getting shiny. I spotted this in the makeup aisle at CVS and decided to give it a try since it seemed convenient and one of the offered shades was exactly the same as my skin color.

A big pro with this powder/concealer is that it doesn't clog pores, which is very good if you hate layers of junk on your face. When it comes to coverage, however, it's not that good. Compared to liquid foundation, don't expect much to be hidden. The powder reduces shine visibly, but it doesn't stay on for too long so expect to reapply it a few times throughout the day.

My biggest problem about this product is that it's durability is pretty bad. Carrying the powder/foundation in my purse or bag is disastrous, the ending result being a bunch of powder everywhere. I guess this is meant to be carried in pockets only which is annoying since I usually have my wallet or cellphone in my pockets.

Overall, I'm still using this, but looking for something a bit more durable. Overall, it's average, but nothing too amazing.
