This pressed powder is part of Guerlain's Meteorites range. It is an illuminating and mattifying pressed powder that is supposed to get rid of the 'oil slick' and give you that radiant complexion.
I don't know if I look radiant, but I love to use this to set my foundation. I have it in 02 Teint Beige. Using the puff that comes with the compact, I press the powder into my skin and brush away any excess. The powder is finely milled, feels very light on my skin and it does not take away the finish of the foundation I used ( I like to use satin finish ). With some powders, I end looking too matte and powdery. I never had that problem with Guerlain's Meteorite Compact.
As for oil control, I find that this works just like most powders - not better, not worst. I enjoy using this for touch up because it does not feel and look like I just piled more product on. When I need to retouch, I blot my face with tissue first and then apply the powder. I find that it still gives a natural finish.
This powder has no coverage, it will not conceal blemishes and other skin imperfections. For this reason, I only use this on top of foundation.
