NYX HD Banana powder

NYX HD Banana powder

Since I practically used up my Bobbi Brown pressed powder, I was in for trying a new powder. I decided to go with a drugstore option this time. And it is another yellow toned powders. This banana powder by NYX is one I owned for a while, but I hadn’t gotten round to using it yet. Banana powders are usually not my favorite as they are usually too dark for my skin tone. How does this work out for me?

Essence Correct to Perfect powder pearls

I am forever trying to find cool face powders. When it comes to powders I tend to not be too picky: if they make my makeup last I am usually happy. But not all powders are created equal. I had never tried a powder before that comes in this loose pearl form. Or course inspired by the infamous Guerlain Meteorites, Essence has done an affordable dupe that I couldn’t wait to try. essence correct to perfect powder face swatch review pearls cc multi-benefit 10 my super pearls

Flormar Terracotta powder

Flormar Terracotta powder

In the summer time, I love a shimmery cheek. My favorite blushes for the summer time have shimmer, but what I love even more is an all-in-one cheek product that warms up my complexion, shines like a highlight but has enough pink to work as a blush on me. One such product that just screams summer to me is the Terracotta powder by Flormar.  flormar bronzer blush terracotta powder review swatch marble pink gold

Catrice All Matt Plus Universal

Catrice All Matt Plus Universal

A classic powder in Catrice’s makeup line is their All Matt Plus powder. I used to own this in a skin color shade, but never got around to reviewing it. It wasn’t my favorite because the shade was darker than my skin tone. That wasn’t such a big deal in itself: it worked well on my face, but when I went to set my under eye with it, it would darken that area, while I was looking to brighten it. So after a while, I stopped using it and phased it out of my collection. Now that Catrice have come out with a translucent version of that powder, I thought I’d try it again.  catrice all matt plus face powder universal transparent translucent review swatch

MAC Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder Pressed

MAC Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder Pressed

Today’s review features an oldie but a goodie: a product that I used up, repurchased, but just never had gotten round to reviewing just yet. What can I say: it happens. I’m talking about one of my favorite powders on the make up market. I discovered the MAC Prep+Prime Transarent Finishing Powder when my Mineralized Skin Finis no longer sufficed. I had moved work in an office building with a lot of AC and my make up looked horrible after just a few hours into my workday. The problem: the powder. So I went to MAC and asked for a suggestion and this is what they came up with. Here’s why I love it enough to have given this another whirl.  MAC Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder Pressed

How come I always take the longest time to review my favorite products? I simply seem to enjoy using them so much that I forget. That is definitely the case with these two products: one of these is an ultimate favorite product. The other product took some getting used to, but now that I have, I have come to love that too.  Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Strobe Light Powder Mood Exposure Iridescent Strobe Light Review Swatch

Catrice Prime & Fine Mattifying Powder Waterproof

That a good face powder doesn’t have to cost much was already proven by the Catrice Nude Illusion Loose powder. But since loose powders can be quite messy, I prefer a pressed version. After hearing loads of good stuff about this waterproof powder by Catrice, I decided to give it a go. Will it mattify my make up and make it last?
