Although I quite liked the Paul & Joe Protective Dual Powder Foundation, it started getting cakey, especially between my eyebrows and below my nose. At first I thought it was caused by the residue on the sponge applicator but even after changing to a new one, the foundation still caked and would literally slide around my face after a couple of hours, creating weird yellow streaks. Honestly, not a good look. I had also tried all sorts for the base, from using sunscreen alone, to applying three different primers (not all at once, of course). It still caked! I was so disappointed because it worked well at the beginning but just got too strange after several uses. I still love the packaging but I won't be re-purchasing this foundation for sure. I think I'll only use it if I'm going out for short instances, such as a mini grocery run or something.
So, I went back to searching for a better powder foundation. I was at MAC with my sisters over Chinese New Year and noticed they had a line called Lightful.
The shade I got is NC25, which matches my skin tone very well. It looks slightly darker in the photo because of the tungsten lighting. The powder is sold separately from the compact. The sponge that comes with the powder is inserted into a compartment below. It is in the standard MAC powder foundation packaging except the Lightful one is a lot prettier instead of the usual black compact.
