I usually wear this powder foundation in the summer.
It is a loose powder, mineral, the texture is medium/thick like the powder foundations I like, but in a loose powder form.
Coverage is very good I consider it to be a full coverage powder foundation.
It is buildable so you can get the coverage you want with this foundation but be careful because it can cause some cakeness if you apply too much of it.
I apply it on top of my Artistry Essentials Concealer in the summer and I get a beautiful coverage.
Lasting power is also very good. I apply it in the morning an all I do after that is touch up with a pressed powder.
This foundation does have shimmer in it since it is mineral, but it is very minimal in my opinion specially since I wear it in the summer most of the time. I don't see it being a huge problem, I am ok with it and I hate shimmery foundations. This one is not too shimmery in my opinion.
This line has a good color range, the only thing as with all Avon foundations and powders you have to buy at least more than one to get your perfect match. At least I always have to.
Once you know your color, youre set.
The only thing I really don't like about this foundation and the reason why I don't use it all the time is because it is too messy. I still have the old package on this foundation and it gets all over the place.
Loose powders of any kind are not to my liking I hate it when it gets everywhere and specially on my clothe.
You really need to make time and apply this carefully so that it doesn't get all over the place..I really have to try the new packaging and see if that makes it less messy for me.
Other than the messy part I really like this product and it's coverage.
So far it is my Summer foundation for a daily basis until I find my HG Summer Foundation, and as I always mention on my Avon Posts.
Prices always go on sale so I wait until this goes for $7.99 to order.
I think that it the cheapest it gets but I may be wrong.
Before I end my post I really prefer the Smooth Minerals loose powder from the Smooth Minerals Pressed.. for some reason the pressed has more shimmer in it and the colors are darker..
For Reference I am and NC35-37 in Mac and I use the color 
Shell or Sand Beige in the Summer.

I hope this review was helpful!
