The recent release from Urban Decay is a new take on the exiting Luminous Shimmering Face & Body Powder. It was released as a holiday / Christmas product but this will be of more use to me in the Summer and since I am counting the minutes til I can get my pins out in actual daylight…
In the Summer I rely on my MAC Mineralise Skin Finish Natural. But during the rest of the year I can get away without it as I’m not too oily. In the interest of wearing less make-up I have abandoned my powder in the last few months. Aside from my makeup not lasting as long, I do look a lot less polished. This has led me to ponder a little more about benefits of powder.
I have come up with 8 reasons to say yes to powder:
1. It sets make-up – It makes your make-up last longer and stops transfer and smudging. It also stops liquid products slipping.
2. It prevents shine – Powder absorbs moisture. The key is to keep it light to avoid cakiness.
3. It mattifies – An essential for ladies with oily skin.
