This is originally my cousin's, but she forgot to pack this when she left for Canada... so, dibs! :D I like a good setting powder - mainly because I don't normally touch up my makeup when I'm out. I just bring a pack of brown tissues - like the tissues found at Starbucks! - with me which I use to blot my face when I get oily.
Solves everything. But wouldn't it be better if I don't have to touch up at all?
This powder came to me at a great time - it's super hot and humid currently in the country, and my makeup just melts off my face after a few hours. The 3W Clinic Powder is commonly used for stage makeup because it can withstand the heat of studio lights, and it's also apparently very long-lasting.
I have this in the shade #23, and it is very, very pink. I thought it would clash with my very, very yellow skin, but it's doesn't, fortunately. It actually goes pretty translucent once blended in the skin. My face feels incredibly smooth and soft after applying it, but one downside that I immediately saw was it clings on dry patches on my face.
(Before | After)
I picked the L'oreal Lucent Magique Foundation to try this setting powder because it's the foundation I have that last the least on me. I don't know if you can see it clearly, but on the after shot, my face was oily like hell.
My face was so greasy, I had to wipe off all my makeup while inside the car because it was aggravating me so badly. My face was looking rough, too! I had it on just under 5 hours, and I honestly, I never felt that bad before. I was wondering though, if it's because of the foundation I had on, and not the powder? Or maybe because of the weather?
Have you ever tried this particular powder before? I would love to know your opinions about this!
Any good face powder recommendations? :)
