Your standard finishing powder for less $
I needed a finishing/setting/translucent powder to set my makeup and I stumbled upon this at the drugstore. I had been having a lot of luck with Maybelline products so I decided to get this. The packaging is cute, classy and minimalist. The plastic of the container seems pretty sturdy and resistant to breakage and the cap seals tightly. I keep my basic face products in a small/medium sized leopard print pouch and the cap to this product never budged- so no messy powder spills in my makeup bag. There is also a TON of product- this thing will last me forever! Also, I think this is probably just as nice as any high end finishing powder ( not 100% sure of course) but its relatively cheap- thats a win! I do like the little brush it came with- I thought it was gonna be cheap, crappy and un-usable like they usually are. I was pleasantly surprised. It came with a mini kabuki with a sturdy plastic handle and a bundle of dense, white hair (synthetic or real?). The "hair" is a little coarse, especially at the top, but its also kind of smooth. A few swirls over my face doesn't seem to irritate my skin. As far as the powder goes I use it to set my foundation/TM/BB cream, and I think it might help cut down the shine of BB/TMs, most likely because of the added SPF. I think it makes my skin a little smoother, and blots down extra moisture. It might help cut down the transfer factor too. Its true that the holes inside let in lots of powder, so I usually just use the powder that accumulates on the underside of the cap, instead of the inner chamber. That and the feeling that I don't notice much of a difference with the way my makeup feels/looks are the only cons for this product. I might just like the act of setting my makeup and feeling reassured that its "set" more than this product actually "working". I would recommend this to beginners to makeup or anyone who wants to play around with inexpensive loose powders. This might help people with oily skin more than me, too. I also avoid powdering my t zone because its extremely dry and is prone to flakes and gunked up face product.
too much makeup!!!!
i found this to make my face seem orange, this product made me upset because so many people loved it but i hated it.. i turned orange and looked so weird with it...also you could see the fine line of where my makeup started and ended...i was very disappointed
I like this product because it goes on well, it blend, but I did have a few little troubles. Whenever I put on a faceprimer, even after letting it dry, the power stuck to some areas and I had to work really hard to blend it all out. The next thing is the foundation didnt seem to last all day, maybe its just my skin, but I have used better products. This product isnt bad, but it isnt awesome either.
Honestly I think it's ok. Sometimes I see that the brush takes off my foundation and I have to redo it. But when I do get it on it lasts for a while. It sometimes fades on me so i have to od on it. But then I have some friends that it works on. So I guess if you know someone who has it try theres before you buy your own. :o Also it makes a huge mess opening it.
Gives me the perfect looking skin!
My face wouldn't be complete without this! I literally use this everyday, and it's such a steal for the price compared to other translucents. It gives me the smooth, blended, doll like look when I use bronzer to contour my apples in my cheeks and blush, It def brings it all together!
