I wear this everyday and it doesn't look cakey at all! But, I've noticed that if I apply my Hard Candy concealer beforehand, it does look a little cakey and dry (but that's just for my skin, it may look great on you).
It looks great when applied by itself with a damp beauty blender. It keeps my face matte for a long period of time. I do have to reapply near the end of the day because I have oily to combination skin.
I am currently using this foundation. Adds coverage but does not make your face feel caked. However, if you are looking for a high coverage powder, this is not for you. This is just a light coverage pressed powder for everyday wear.
I bought this pressed powder foundation at Shopper's Drug Mart for $18.00. I'm actually quite surprised at how well this product works.... keeps the shine at bay by giving you very sheer coverage. I find this product works best as a highliter. Its not pressed too tightly, so one stroke of the pad and it could go on quite heavy on your face. I find it works well when using a powder brush, gives a light dusting and a light glow to the skin. I like to use it on my cheek bones for a radiant look more than a pressed powderThe price is high. But worth it.
