Beautiful mochi skin.
This powder does mattify but it makes your skin look and feel so soft like a piece of supple mochi. The smell is sooo gorgeous, but beware if you don't like scented powders. It's not strong, but it's there and I know some are sensitive.
It covers all of my pores so well, I do have fairly large pores from 10+ yrs of acne damage and a lot of scars, this powder does so well and smoothing them!
It does seem to have a brightening evening effect, but not as in more pale, more even and glowing.. I really want to try the purple one now, I used to use a purple powder to subtly highlight areas
