My grandmother used that. When she passed away we found boxes and boxes of it so she must have looooved it. (She used the old fashioned powder puffs to apply it.)

I used to do Coty's Airspun before I switched to mineral make up.

What made you switch? How do you like the mineral make up?

I'm still in researching mode. I'm not a big fan of even the idea of wearing makeup, but as I'll be working within the next year or so I know that my future employer will most likely expect a professional polished appearance, and unfortunately makeup seems to be a part of that uniform.

-It's fine-milled, which gives a sheer finish with coverage that avoids looking cakey or grainy or chalky.

-It comes in a ton of shades, plus translucent.

-It can be found in fragrance-free.

-It's a great setting powder.

-It doesn't feel gross or itchy (have problems with the latter in mineral foundation type products and those containing cornstarch).

-It's reasonably priced.

I totally agree with the Coty AS. I have several.containers of the old hat box version, need to go pick up the new plastic containers.

@haggardhouseelf- I switched because a pressed mineral make up looks more natural lasts longer and is better for acne prone skin . I used to do liquid estee lauder foundation and coty airspun powder to set. I loved lancome powder but it got expensive. Coty is really good,though esp the transluscent.

If you don't really need coverage though,just a matte finish, then a bit of concealer and Coty Airspun would be perfect for you. I need coverage for my hyperpigmentation. I like that mineral makeup can be applied very light all over except for my cheeks where I have sun spots and darkened acne spots so I build coverage there.

I saw Coty Airspun at CVS yesterday, and thought of this thread.

the (coty airspun)boxes are very Art Deco. I have a pot of Seven powder from target which I bought awhile back beacuse I liked the black oval shape with 7 on it. as good as Coty but more expensive.
