This summer I have been reaching for highlighters, dewy foundations and sheer tinted moisturizers. So I was kind of surprised when I fully embraced this matte loose powder, likely attributed to its unique qualities. I certainly have never encountered a powder quite like this one.
Using Micronized Hyaluronic Acid, By Terry Hyaluronic Hydra-Powder infuses skin with hydration and fills wrinkles, pores and imperfectiona. But at the same time, oil and shine is kept at bay with silica microbeads and an ultra-light texture. So my dry skin doesn’t show through as it so often does with powders.
Back to the “matte finish”. I don’t find this powder to be overly matte. I use very sparingly on a large powder brush and get a more transparent look. In fact, the powder is white but appears on skin completely colorless. Don’t worry about a dusky finish. Other bloggers have attested to a full on matte look. My best blogging buddy, Maree, encounters a more matte finish on her oily to normal skin. Check out her awesome review here. My takeaway is that the amount of product can really make a different in the finished look.
The packaging is relatively tidy for loose powder. Packaged in the classic tub, the plastic dispenser has ultra-fine holes allowing for a measured amount of product. I pour a couple taps into the lid and swirl with my powder brush. Tap on the side of the sink and apply.
Last but not least, this powder effectively and beautifully sets makeup. Feather-weight on skin, it conceals flaws and can be used to spot treat where you need more staying power or coverage.
Available at Barneys, B-Glowing, Beauty.com, NET-A-PORTER and Space NK.
