Dermablend Loose Setting Powder

When you use this powder, it is quite a different concept, as you are "baking" or setting your make-up. You are piling on the powder, allowing it to "bake" or set the make-up, and then buffing it off. I have never done this before. I was concerned buffing the powder would remove the make-up, but the make-up was definitely set and did not budge. The buffing removed the excess, allowing the natural skin tone to shine through. I learned that if I let it bake too long, I often felt the translucent tone of the make-up would make my skin look too pale. The Dermablend website says to let it set for two minutes, and that really does appear to be the magic number. Regardless, even if you let it bake too long, the powder wears off, yet the make-up stays in place. Before you try it, definitely watch the tutorial on the website.
This really has to be one of the better powders out there, as my make-up pretty much stayed in place all day. Don't expect any powder to be a miracle worker--after all, I'm not exchanging my oily yet dry combination skin for better skin! But after wearing it all day for multiple days during different times of the month, this stands the test for a full day at work. I still need to powder my make-up during the day at work, but even when the oil starts to appear, I feel like my make-up is still in place, unlike previously, where my face would get oily, the make-up would slide off, and my contour was basically gone. Even if I don't get to powder my face during a busy day at work, my make-up still looks better than with other products.
I still need to freshen up my face make-up after work and before dinner, but my make-up looks so much better after a long day at work than it used to. On top of that, I have not had an allergic reaction or an adverse skin reaction after using it, which leads to verification of their claims of hypo-allergenic, non-comedogenic, and non-acnegenic.
If you are looking to bake or set your make up, I would highly recommend this product!
Pros: Dermablend will cover every imperfection. Hide blemishes, blackheads, scars, and uneven skin. Your will be blown away with the results. A little goes a long way. The color selection is amazing and matching most skin tones is easy.
Cons: This is NOT for everyday use. Dermablend is heavy and should be reapplied every 3-4 hours. Removal is tough. I typically do a cleansing mask after wear. Blending can take a while because the consistency is very thick, similar to stage makeup. Adequate lighting during application is a MUST. The finishing powder is helpful to avoid looking dewy.
Overall, Dermablend is worth the effort for important meetings and special occasions.
