Best powder I've ever used. So smooth and I stay matte all day even after a workout once blotted off the sweat! ...You at least need to try this powder!!!!

Dany's Tip: "If you have applied a little too much shadow or blush, just add a touch of Super Matte Loose Powder and blend for a softer result. Choose either a shade that matches your skin tone or the #12 universal translucent tone."
