Now it may seem a bit ironic me popping this post up considering this week I have been the number one advocate of popping in lots of rich moisturiser into your skin to combat the cold. Well today is all about hiding that moisture with a translucent setting powder! I received this beaut of a product from my lovely friend Natalie (who also has a brilliant blog that you can find over here) for my birthday. Upon first application it was love! Considering I used to be a girl who was all about all things matte, for the past few months I have been embracing the glow and reaching for dewy enhancing products. Even though the glow and me are quickly becoming BBF’s I always need a brilliant powder by my side. You never know when you might be caught with a spot of the nose shine or if the central heating has been whacked up too high, a perfect powder is what everyone needs. Not only that, the are key in helping set you makeup so it stays in place if your going on a night out or need your makeup to last that little bit longer.
The powder is perfect for all of the above. It takes away any excess shine in an instant but doesn’t leave your skin looking powdery or even that powder has been applied! It gives that natural matte when the glow just gets too much for you. What’s great about this powder is that it is finely milled so feels light on the skin and as it is transparent you don’t get any ghost face leftovers. Not only that, the handy little sponge applicator that comes in the compact is even more handy! It has two sides, one for applying the powder to your face and the otherside to help buff the powder in. Perfection! I was a big fan of my MAC Blot Powder (which I have done a full review on here) but this Laura Mercier addition has quickly pipped it to the post!
