It's not a cream. It's a pressed powder. In my experience, it does not go on powdery. It goes on really smoothly, and you can build it up. I use a foundation primer and liquid concealer as needed, followed by the Koh Gen Do Triple Lighting Foundation. I usually dust a bit of translucent powder over my face with a kabuki brush to blend in the areas where I built up the foundation. Hope this helps!

It's powder, but you can build as much layering as you like. I find a tinted moisterizer and this powder keeps going all day, even on 11- or 12- hour workdays.

it's not a cream to powder; it's not even really a powder. It's just magical stuff. It's airy light, yet it covers.

This isn't a cream to powder foundation. It's mineral powder foundation in a powder form. For coverage you should use the sponge that comes with it to press it into the skin.

This is pressed powder with medium coverage. I bought it as a foundation but it is better as a touch-up powder.

Question
does the compact some with the makeup or do you have to buy separately?
I said it all already-does it come in the red compact when you order it or do you have to order the powder and the compact separately?

You order them separately. I only ordered the powder and sponge alone, as I don't take a compact in my purse or briefcase.

not sure: I think it comes separately and you have to buy the compact. I already have two compacts because I won't be without this product. You'd need to call

You have to order it seperately, but from there you only need to buy the refill.

You probably don't *need* a finishing powder over the Koh Gen Do Triple Lighting Foundation, but I do usually use one. Just a bit. I dust some Laura Mercier translucent powder over my face (with a kabuki brush) to make sure I blend any place where I built up the foundation more than other places.

I don't think you need any powder to finish this, as it is a powder. You could use highlighting powder if you want, fluffing highlights on top of it.

No, this product can stand alone, and I use it over my primer and concealer. I apply it with a brush

You can use it as a setting powder if you like more coverage than what you have for coverage with your cream or liquid foundation.
I apply it with a brush after my foundation!

Coverage
Does this powder foundation highlight dry, flaky spots? What kind of coverage does it have?

This powder does not highlight dry spots when applied with a brush (I like the Hourglass retractable foundation brush). The coverage
is light to medium (definitely not full) and I usually use it for touch ups over my liquid foundation (either KGD or By Terry). I haven't worn it on its own but imagine it would be ideal for someone seeking refinement and very light coverage.

When I have a dry patch from winter or acne, this foundation still covers nicely without looking flaky or cake-y. It has not dried out my skin at all, even in winter. I've been using it for about 4 or 5 months and absolutely love it. It's my current favorite foundation. My 17-yr-old daughter even started using it, and she loves it, too. So it's been great for her young skin and my slightly older skin!

OC-1 is a bit more peach in tone than BE-1, which I would classify as more yellow/golden. I am a NC 20-25 in the winter and prefer the BE-1 for its undertone!

Just like the BE1 in the Aqua Foundation, this is an ochre tone that neutralizes all the redness in the skin. It's perfect for those who have a fair share of redness or rosacea.

If you're fair with neutral/warm undertones I would try the OC-1 foundation. I use PK-1 which I thought may be way too pink for me but it matches my skintone prefectly.

Question
Best shade for Fair skin, blue eyes?
I am not sure which is best for me. I am tan now, but come winter my tan will fade. I have some pink undertones (I think) but I battle redness with breakouts occasionally, so i am wondering if the BE-1 might be better than the PK-1??? I may need to make a trip to the mall and test them before I make the investment, but enjoy your online shopping a lot! :)

I have fair skin and blue eyes plus some redness due to broken capillaries and find that BE-1 is a very natural color.

Question
How yellow are 0C-1 and 0C-2 ? How pink is PK-1 ?
After reading the reviews, I still can't decide on a color! I hate foundations with too much pink in them ( they're aging) but if you warm it up too much you can look yellow... My skin tone is light/medium and neutral because I'm half Italian and half Irish. If the PK-1 is a perfect beige, then that would be right...but, if the 0C-1 is just a little warm then that would be right...What's a girl to do??
