- "It does help mattify my skin and absorb excess oil, but it can leave my face looking a little dull and flat after I apply it." in 5 reviews
This is meant to be a finishing powder and is basically translucent. It provides no coverage but does have a slight tint to it. I believe it comes in four different shades – Cream, Sand, Beige and Honey. Cream is the lightest while Honey is the darkest of the shades. I have tried this product in both Beige and Honey – Beige is a better fit for my skin. Honey was a little too dark for me and I could very visibly tell where I had dusted the ‘Honey’ powder on my face. Don’t be tricked by thinking of it as a “translucent powder”, you will need to make sure to get the shade that is best for your skin because any discrepancies will show.
You generally would dust this on after applying foundation and concealer to set it. This was one of the few products where my skin actually agreed with all the rave reviews. This product definitely has superb oil control and has never broken me out. My skin will become oily within 30 minutes of foundation/bb cream application but after using this powder, I only need to blot about 2-3 hours after. I generally will reapply a light dusting around my T-zone after blotting, as you might lose some of the powder in the blotting process.
The only negative that I have to say for this product is the quantity that you get for the price. This product can be pretty expensive, depending on where you buy it and whether there is a promotion or not. Since I use this powder so often, I would say one lasts me a little less than a month. I hit pan pretty quickly, probably within 2 weeks of use. I usually only stock up when Walgreens or CVS has a “buy one get one” sale or if I have a coupon.
