* powder has tiny shimmers to reflect light
* sheer to medium coverage perfect for setting the Photoready foundation. Tried it with a different brand of foundation and it still works great.
* doesn't cake on me
* no breakouts / allergies - didn't make my skin itch
* has SPF
* compact is thin with mirror and brush
* good oil control

* has a slight weird scent on the compact- but it disappears once applied.
* brush included is kinda scratchy and small - you can use this as a highlighter brush. (Thanks Nikki for the tip!)

I prefer to use my Ecotools baby kabuki brush and swirl it onto the powder. Apply in light layers using a circular motion. Do not over apply.

Yes! This is a good setting powder, not messy compared to loose powders.

The compact looks similar to the Revlon Photoready Finisher.
Will post comparison pics on my next review.

By the way, I am using all the Korean brand brushes from very cheap to more expensive to craft stores brushes :P I mean The Face Shop and more cheaper brands to more expencive like Cathy Cat. All works for me good :)

So photoready has been launched in the Philippines huh?
I have no idea when they are going to launch it here, what a bummer.
Anyways, nice review and the product sounds perfect for touchups :)
