This is my first experience using this product so I opted for the pressed version because it will better suit my needs. YES THE BRUSH WILL FIT! Just leave the plastic shield in place and the included brush fits right on top. The case will still close. Also, the product is finely milled so I have been using a large kabuki brush. YES IT TAKES A LOT TO SUCCESSFULLY WORK. If I apply liberally and blend well, I have not needed touch ups (at least not yet). Another tip, if you use a large kabuki brush you can turn the brush right side up and lightly "tap" some the powder into the brush. This will help to minimize any waste from the powder going all over the place but your face. Make sense?

This is a great setting powder. I use compressed as opposed to loose leaf so that I don't pick up as much powder on my brush to avoid a cakey look. This powder doesn't leave you looking cake-faced, is light, and provides an extremely subtle glow that makes your skin look dewy. I use it set my Tarte BB Cream (the one with SPF 30 of course!) and then mist some hydration spray and my skin looks flawless. You can barely tell I'm wearing makeup! Not to mention it lasts all day. Highly recommend!

I love the new packaging, it is so much easier to travel with and makes it less messy compared to the old one. I bought the aqua lily? collection version of this and love it just as much but this new packing is so easy and works just as great. I love the flat brush that it comes with. I wish it had a compartment where I can store the brush though.

This is a great product! It eliminates shine and sets your make up without leaving a powdery look on your face. Very fine texture. I love it!

This really does the job! I have two of the loose powder, one I had in my purse before..that's why I'm so glad they made this compact! Makes it easier to take one of my fave tarte products on the go!

The BEST finishing powder I've used! I have tried multiple finishing powders this by far is my favorite, it goes on so smooth and has great staying power. Great way to make lip color last longer by sweeping a tad on the lips after applying lipstick.

This is one of my favorite tarte products. I was already a fan of the loose powder and this is perfect for throwing in your purse. I never want to be without this. Now I can take it any wear without worrying about making a mess.

I have oily skin and am always looking for products that help combat shine (and are portable too). This works amazingly well and is perfect for quick touch-ups on the go. Packaging is sleek and very easy to slip into even the smallest purse. Thanks Tarte!!!

This is a beautiful powder! It goes on like silk and is great for setting my under-eye concealer and mattifying my face in general. The only con is that the included brush is not the greatest tool to use, and it's kind of a bummer that it doesn't fit into the compact for on-the-go use (I don't like carrying huge powder brushes around if I'm taking this in my purse for an evening out). But that's just a minor detail - the product itself is awesome! Try it!

Works perfectly! True to it's name, the product is transparent and it doesn't cake up my makeup when I apply it. I'm not a total fan of the included powder brush but still works fine.

Never leave home with out it. At the first sign of oil I just dust a little on and my face is flawless again. Not chalky or cakey at all. Fantastic for deeper skin tones!!!

I use this to set my Tarte BB cream and it's awesome! Very light, natural, and beautiful. It's very compacted so it's a little difficult to get on the brush but a little does really go a long way.

I love this powder! It is truly mattifying without overdrying the skin, and it does not look chalky or white like other colorless powders. I would highly recommend this product.

I really love this product. I was so excited to see that it came out in a compact. I have been using it in the loose powder and love it but I don't like to take it with me in my purse. The compact is convenient and neat. I love the design of the brush, which is unique. It is a flat soft brush that gently applies the powder to my face without wasting it. I like that the Amazonian powders don't crease on my face, even as the day rolls on, and I live in very warm to hot climate.

I love that this is in a travel-friendly form now. I am happy that I can bring it everywhere with me in my purse without worrying about powder flying everywhere when I open it. The mirror is great as well-- however, I feel that the brush doesn't deliver the powder very well.
