PERFORMANCE: The texture of the powder is smooth and smooth.It isn’t chalky.I use a large fluffy brush to dust it on my face for a finished look and it doesn’t’ look powdery or OTT .The best part is that it doesn’t alter the shade of your foundation.
I have oily T-zone and this perform wonderfully in keeping the oil at bay for about 4-5 hours making my face look fresh and clear.Regarding the claims of minimizing the appearance of pores,i feel that it does hide pores to some extent leading to a flawless skin.
