This is one of those products I wish I had never tried because it’s pricey but now that I’ve used it I can’t live without it. This retails for around 30 dollars and can be purchased anywhere that sells Smashbox.
This is a micro-fine translucent powder that I use after I’ve applied my foundation. I was kind of skeptical of its “airbrushing” capabililities but this really softens the appearance of pores and lines. It blurs any imperfections you might have without looking like you’ve added anything extra to your skin. It also drastically reduces the amount I have to powder throughout the day, even more than my Urban Decay setting spray, this keeps my t-zone shine free for hours. I’ve read that if you have decent skin you could apply this without needing foundation to give yourself a glowy flawless face. I have tried this without foundation and while it does eliminate shine, minimize my pores and soften any imperfections it’s translucent so it provides no coverage over scarring or red spots.
I like applying this with a big soft kabuki brush after my foundation has dried. It also helps tame down blush if you apply to much. You definitely don’t need a lot of this product, just a quick swirl in the lid of the jar and I have enough to cover my face.
This product also contains SPF 15.
I love using this with my Makeup Forever HD foundation. Those 2 products combined probably give me the best looking skin I’ve ever had.
So while this is a pricier item I think it’s worth the splurge. Setting your makeup with regular powder is fine, but this gives you a much smoother, polished finish and literally eliminates shine for me the entire day. I’ve never had a product do that for me before. This is definitely a HG product!Read More
