Does this come with a sponge?

No it doesn't come with a sponge or any type of applicator. I recommend purchasing a brush. The brush just blends it well across the skin.

Question
Is this the same?
Is this the same thing as the HD Microfinish powder?
I got a sample of that stuff and loved it but I am looking for something that is more travel friendly, so is this the same stuff? Has anyone tried both and if so is there is a difference? Thanks in advance!

I haven't tried the sample size but I purchased the .07oz. size especially for travel. It's awesome for removing the oily look before photos! I'm going on vacay and wanted to make sure I wasn't all shiny for pics! It's very compact, fits in the palm of your hand and fits well in your pocket!

Question
Does it really work with all skin tones
I have oily skin that just started a year ago and I'm 33 years old but I am also olive skin toned. I worry that with having olive skin and using a white powder it will make me look ghostly . I don't want to spend money on something I can't use. Thank you

As long as you blend the powder onto your skin there's no reason why you should see the whiteness of the powder. It blends well, it's like putting an invisible magic oilyness reducer on ;-)

It's supposed to be invisible, but it's really not. I couldn't believe how much I had to blend in this powder to make the whiteness go away. I have fair skin too....I can't imagine how bad this would look on a person that had darker skin.

No it doesn't settle into fine lines or wrinkles. It's invisible once blended onto the skin. And there's no sparkle, glitter, shimmer or pearl color to it.

Matte finish. Does settle and tend to reduce the wrinkles around the eyes.

The powder does absolutely nothing except show up white on your face. I didn't notice anything around the eyes, and the finish seemed pretty matte to me.

How big is the compact (diameter)?
I am looking for a very small powder compact for a small purse. I am wondering if the smaller 0.07 oz. size will work. It does not need to be this particular product - any suggestions welcome!

They carry a very small compact. I use a small purse and it is perfect. I got my small compact at the line waiting to checkout (where all the other samples are.). It's a great product..and the perfect size for a very small purse.

a short, soft bristle brush. Ideally a kubuki would work perfectly, with a round top. I use the Sephora all over powder brush #61 and it's absolutely amazing.

Does this powder make you super white in flash pictures?
Sometimes with these powders when you take a flash picture your face reflects all the light so all you see is where your eyes are.

Yes it's the same. The pressed is just recommended for travel while the loose powder could make a possible mess.

It is a brand new product. However because it is the same product only pressed you may still have the white cast in photos, due to how finely milled it is. If it comes with a sponge applicator i would still use a brush.
