I usually prefer the illuminating powder because it brightens my skin tone when it's looking muddy. But with the oily, greasy battle I fight every summer I switched to this one. It kept my makeup set for most of the day unless I got super physical and sweaty. I love these powders because they don't clog my pores like crazy as most do.
I don't think I've found a setting powder that helps my make up stay matte for a long time. It's nice when first applied and the first couple hours. However, like always, my face becomes shiney. I would get it again if it came in a set with other items, however, not on it's own.
