Is It Worth The Hype?: Laura Mercier Mineral Powder

I don't know if you guys noticed, but I noticed these past couple months that the Beauty Gurus of Youtube have been OBSESSED with the Laura Mercier Mineral Powder. So many of the Gurus that I trust and relate to love the foundation that I felt inspired to try it myself. I first started with a sample from Sephora that lasted me about 2 weeks (you can go into Sephora and ask for a sample of anything, even a powder! They have sample containers that they can tap the product into for you. I totally recommend trying before buying, plus you can get  a color match done while you are there too). Well, I was in love with it at first use! I loved it so much that I just couldn't go on without it after my sample ran out! I was then on the hunt. I knew that you could get the product at Sephora but me being me, I was out for a deal! Not even thinking I would get a deal at Amazon because a lot of Sephora sold products on Amazon are really sold by Sephora through Amazon so they are never on sale, I decided to check Amazon anyway. Low and behold it was actually on Amazon for less than the retail price and had free shipping! Gold mine! As you might know the product usually costs $36. As you might also know, prices on fluctuate and if you are patient you can usually get the product for even less than what you originally found on Amazon because sellers and Amazon are constantly adjusting prices... well I nearly died of excitement when after a couple weeks of stalking this product on Amazon the price dropped to $27.59!! This coupled with the fact that I had earned $30 worth of Amazon credit through various online means/programs (like Crowdtap, Wishwall, and Shark Surveys) meant that I got the product for FREE!! What's better than that right?

What about you guys? Have you tried this product yet? Have you fallen in love with it too? Maybe you don't understand the hype and dislike the product? Let me know your experiences in a comment below! :)
