use it all year and my skin is not super oily. don't know what is different about it but the compact looks different? hope it is still the same.
Weird that it does look purple but I'm willing to give it a try because a) I love urban decay b) I need oil control fast.
I highly recommend this powder. It really works!!!
Jules - I think you are right and it is only the compact that is different. I couldn't get through this summer without it.
Kim - Like I just said above, I don't know how I could get through the summer without this. You will really like it, I'm sure.
Rachel - Glad to hear it works well for you. I recommend it too.
Love this powder and need it year round to get rid of my oil and shine.
