With very pale skin comes a problem - wearing make up is very obvious if you don't do it right. This pressed powder makes my skin look flawless and clean. The powder itself is pressed well so it is fairly hard to over powder. When I first bought it I also thought it was very expensive but it is a year later now and I am still working on it. My skin is extremely oily so it doesn't tend to last too long though. One thing I hate about MAC as a brand is the beauty specialists will always tell you to use a brush when powdering but this pressed powder comes with a poof.
If I didn't have oily skin I would have probably given this product a 5 but I can't help but knock it down a bit. We all can't slather ourselves in primer.
