MY REVIEW
This powder is different in texture than the Ideal Flawless Pressed Powder.
The formula on this one is thicker.
I believe it's aiming to be like the Mac's Studio Fix Powder except is not too close.
It's harder to blend, it gave me a patchy look.
 One of the things I really disliked about this powder is that on the first use I swiped my brush accross it and it left that wet/dry look (I guess from my own face oils) on the top of the powder.
I hate it when that happens to my powders, I feel as they just don't work the same anymore.
 I also tried swatching the powder with my finger
and when I tried to swatch it to the back of my hand, it didn't even transferred.
It stayed on my finger =/
I have to use my scotch tape trick to remove the oils dried up on my powder everytime I use this powder.
In this case I'd much rather stick to my Ideal Pressed Powder
as it works great and better for touch ups.
The color I got on this is Light/Medium but it  is more on the orange side rather than yellow.
I really liked the texture on this powder if only the quality was better this would be a great med coverage powder.
I won't be repurchasing this powder again, not happy with the results.
I have pretty much tried all Avon powders and I think the Ideal Shade Powder is the best in my opinion since I only use it to control the oil.

If this powder worked for you let me know.
Hope this review was helpful.
