I love the design of this compact; makeup in the top half, and a second compartment to contain the brush (or if you choose to use a separately-sold puff, it should fit in there too). The included brush is pretty nice, but I do prefer to use a puff.
This really does seem to match my skin tone: I bought it in Light, and I'm pretty pale with some pinkness. It reduced the appearance of my pores with proper application and stayed matte yet natural looking all day. Best of all, it was non-irritating and I didn't break out from using it!
It's a little pricier, yes, but I feel it's worth it.
