During The Makeup Show (happened in March 2012), I received a powder from Mehron from the Blogger Preview Event.

Celebre Pro-HD Loose Mineral Finishing Powder in Light/Medium
Where to purchase: mehron.com and stores that sell Mehron
Price: $14.95 for 0.41 oz/ 12 g
Made in USA
Description from the back: Celebre Pro-HD Loose Mineral Powder is the perfect luxurious matte finishing powder that perfectly compliments both Celebre Pro-HD Cream and Powder foundations. Made of French delaminated talc that is transparent, offering no whitening, keeping your colors bright and true. It improves slip and adhesion and offers lubricity. This ultra-fine powder provides the finishing touch that perfects and sets makeup for a healthy, flawless coverage.
When I received this in March, I was disappointed because it was too light for my skin tone. Since I'm getting paler with this winter weather, I knew I had to try this out. The packaging is very simple which I don't mind. I also like that it's a very sturdy. When you close the lid, you can feel how tight it is and know that loose powder will not come out. It's also very easy to open and again know that loose powder will not poof out.
Now for my overall opinion... I love it! I tend to find a lot of powder including mineral powders cake-y if you apply too much. No matter how much I apply with this product, it looks natural on me. Not only is it natural looking, it's on the matte side. It doesn't have sparkle or shine. If you're looking for a heavy coverage, this product isn't it. It's on the light to medium side depending how much you apply. Since I have dry skin, most product tends to last all day on me. This is no exception. It lasts all day and I like that I don't have to reapply. To end my opinion, I find that all descriptions written on boxes/websites are never 100% accurate. This one is an exception. The description is 100% true to what they wrote!
* Mehron; brand makeup artists use.
* Tight lid; no fall outs.
* Light to medium coverage.
* Natural looking.
* Flawless coverage.
* Hard to find in stores.
Would repurchase: Yes!
