Annabelle BB Compact Makeup - $15.95 - a paraben and perfume free satiny lightweight powder foundation that glides over the skin for a perfectly even skin tone and radiant finish. With buildable coverage that doesn't look cakey thanks to the nifty double-sided sponge with a plush velvet side for extreme softness and a luminous finish and a sponge side for more coverage.
The powder is part of a new BB range - the BB Cream in light/medium is too dark for me so I was expecting the same problem with the powder but it is actually not a bad match - maybe a touch too dark but not dramatically so! I like how lightweight it feels and how it adds coverage without looking mask-like - if you prefer to apply your foundation with a brush rather than a sponge I find a kabuki brush works great with it for a flawless looking application!
