Celebre Pro-HD Loose Mineral Finishing Powder by Mehron

During The Makeup Show (happened in March 2012), I received a powder from Mehron from the Blogger Preview Event.
Mehron isn't a well known brand in the beauty blogging stratosphere, but they should be. They make great, high quality products for makeup artists. Here's their mission...

"Dedicated to the development and manufacture of performance oriented makeup products of high quality and value, incorporating consumer usage benefits beyond normal expectations. To utilize the skills, the facility and the expertise we've gained over eight decades to develop and manufacture a full range of consumer health and beauty products for a select group of private label marketers."

They have all kinds of products from theatrical to beauty. This powder is from their beauty section.
Product Review: Celebre Pro-HD Loose Mineral Finishing Powder in Light/Medium

Where to purchase: 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.
Here's the back of the postcard the powder came with. It has the description which I wrote above, as well as, extra information.
Thoughts: I've always heard about Mehron and their great quality products. Even though I heard about the brand, I never got anything. I'm one of those people who needs to see at least one product in person to be drawn to the brand. Since it's so hard finding this brand in stores, I never had the urge to get it. For that reason, I was excited to try this product!

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.
The container comes with a sifter. You can take it out if you don't want to use it.
Here's a swatch of the powder on my hand. It looks light on my skin, but it's a perfect match.
Here's how the powder looks on me.

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.
* Matte.
* Natural looking.
* Flawless coverage.

* Hard to find in stores.

Would repurchase: Yes!
