I was looking for a new translucent setting powder because as much as I loved my 17 Shine Control Pressed Powder I didn't want the added coverage to my foundation and it meant that on days where I was wearing something very light coverage(e.g tinted moisturiser) it was making it more medium/full coverage. I watched a video by IckleLivzi you can check her channel out here and she said she loved this as a setting powder so I decided that for £1.99 what could go wrong and went out to pick it up.
Now to be honest I didn't have very high hopes for this and just assumed it would go cakey and look horrible on the skin. I also thought it wouldn't help to make me look less oily and would just dissapear off my face, but believe it or not it doesn't.
I apply this over my foundation and concealer with a kabuki brush that is not very dense so that I only apply a little (I am very cautious of having too much powder on my face!) and I put some of this into the lid and swirl the brush in the powder and then apply to my face. When applying it like this it doesn't add coverage(which is great and proves it is translucent) and creates a gorgeous satin finish. You can also apply this with a denser brush and apply more to get a lovely matte finish. This lasts pretty much all day on my with only some shine coming through nearer the end of the day and it keeps the lovely satin finish. It sets my makeup really nicely and looks beautiful on the skin.
I would definitely recommend this, I don't know how it would be on darker skin as I have extremely fair skin and it works very well for me and doesn't make me look at all orange.
Thanks for reading

Thank you so much for this post. I love posts like these. Sounds really good, think I'll go out and try it too, like you said for £1.99 you can't really go wrong, plus I have really fair skin too.ReplyDelete
Aww thanks very much :) yeah exactly even if you don't like it, but I am sure you will it doesn't break the bank :D Thankyou so much!xxDelete
Good to see someone else who loves Natural Collection! I have used their Ivory pressed powder for about 5 years and I've never tried their loose powder - I prefer full matte coverage but I think I'll definitely be giving this a go! :)ReplyDelete
I think some of their products are great, although some aren't so great :) I have never tried that, might look into that when this has finished :) xxDelete
I love this powder :) So cheap but does a really nice job. If you apply too much it can go a bit cakey and orange, so just be careful :) xxReplyDelete
Yes me too, really like this. Thankyou :) Hahha I am so liberal with my powder I don't think that will ever happen to me but thankyou :) xxDelete
Looks like a good powder to me!ReplyDelete
It says natural, but it does contain mineral oils (paraffinum liquidum). Did you notice that? Or doesn't the brand promote natural products?
Yeah it is amazing :) No the brand doesn't promote natural products, the reason it is called 'Natural Collection' is because all the products are designed to create a natural look and are all very neutral and toned down, and nothing they make is really 'out there' :) xxDelete
Sounds like e good one!ReplyDelete
Yes, I love it :) xxDelete
Great review! Think I may have to check this out.ReplyDelete
Thankyou :) I would definitely recommend this :D xxDelete
I have never used a loose powder before! I imagine they would make me look cakey. Good to know this has performed well for you though! I love that your reviews are on products which I don't see blogged about too much!ReplyDelete
I thought that too although I think they actually make you look completely flawless if you get the right one! Aw thankyou! That has made my day :D xxDelete
