Review: ELF Studio Powder Translucent

22 Dec

Hello everyone! Today is the start of a ELF review marathon so I’ll be starting with the translucent powder.

Description: A translucent mattifying powder to set foundation with.

Review: This powder works great as a setting powder and even though it’s not as pigmented as the Clarifying pressed powder (review here) it still has the smooth texture. I really like the way that this powder glides onto the skin it makes the face look a bit more flawless/airbrushed. The packaging is a bit bulky but it still has a nice sleek design as for the sponge that comes with the powder it works pretty well for touch ups. Overall, I think this powder is a good buy especially when you get it 50% off.

Cost: $3 USD @ eyeslipsface.com

Would I recommend this product? I totally would it’s a pretty good powder especially for those with oily skin types.

Review: Revlon Colorstay Aqua Finishing Powder in Translucent

1 Aug

Hello everyone! A great product for summer so let’s get on with the review!

Product Description: A finishing powder with bursts of water infused into the powder.

Review: First off Revlon has another similar powder but it is marketed as a foundation, this one is marketed as a finishing powder the kind that you put on after you put on your foundation. I think it works great as a finishing powder and the burst of water on your face feels really nice in the summer when the weather is sweltering outside. Great for touch ups and since it is translucent it goes well with many different skintones. There is no scent as for staying power there is quite a bit I still have to reapply but it stays on for an average of 4-6 hours on a hot day. Texture is a nice silky powder that glides over the skin offering no coverage. Overall a really good product and even the brush that it comes with is a nice addition.

Cost: $15-20CDN @ drugstore and supermarkets

Would I recommend this product? I totally would recommend this product but come winter I don’t know if I want to use this as the powder effects is for cooling. Cool into cool… not sure how that will work out but will be testing once winter comes.

Review: Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder

7 Jul

Hello everyone! A powder review today… it’s pretty good.

Review: I picked this up because I ran out of powders (again and now I have a bunch of them… I just don’t know when to stop). The shade is 001 translucent so it’s pretty translucent on my face. There is no scent and the powder works great at controlling oils and whatnot on my face I still have to blot unfortunately but not as often anymore (great!) The powder is pretty silky now since it’s pretty silky and just glides over the face nicely it’s hard to tell when to stop as is with all powders so sometimes I end up with an over powdered face (gotta learn some self controll). This also appears to cover some pores and leaves skin with a nice fresh look when used alone (not as a setting powder). What I also dislike is the packaging if I take this on a trip I’m pretty sure it’s going to be broken real quick. The trouble is the lid it has a habit of just sliding off and just freaks me out everytime I put it back in my drawer. Despite me being scared of breaking the powder because of packaging it’s a really good mattifying powder.

Cost: $4-8CDN @ drugstore and Supermarket

Would I recommend this product? I would highly recommend this for people with combination to oily skin (though if you’re really oily you’ll have to reblot but not as often as usual) and there are different shades available as well.
