I deliberated long and hard before I went out and bought Dior's Wear-Extending Invisible Retouch Powder. I'd seen it online, not in person but I was intrigued by the concept that it was marketed for. At the end of the day, I figured, this is just another pressed powder, right?
So I finally ordered it and it sat on my desk unopened for ages until one day I decided that my tinted moisturizer was starting to look a tad too dark for my summer face that I needed to dust a lighter powder on it to set it. I shouldn't have been surprised that the DiorSkin Forever Wear-Extending Invisible Retouch Powder would do a stellar job.

For that initial use, it was a setting powder. But I loved the lightness of it. The texture is really fine and it offered that hint of mattification that I wanted to set the tinted moisturizer. I say hint of mattification because it dulls down excess shine but it doesn't cover up your makeup or give you that caked-over appearance. It didn't change the color of my tinted moisturizer either. But the veil of light powder did the trick. I thought that I would need to touch up further during the day so I took it along with me but I never did. That made me feel like, wow, it does work, in that my tinted moisturizer stayed put all day without needing a touch up.
