3 Powders Worth The Try

Face powders are not normally the products I rave about because they make the makeup look so dry and cakey - if not applied correctly! Lately, I've been enjoying face powders for setting my concealer underneath my eyes, on the sides of my nose and the sides of my mouth.

I never thought about setting my concealer at all but now that I'm doing so I love it and I also love the look and finish of it. At the moment I have three favourites, which almost look the same from the outside and on the inside as well but they actually have a different look and finish after being applied to the face!

Nick Assfalg | Transparent Powder
This powder is the only pressed powder I have in my collection and is also the only pressed one I want to mention in this post. I normally don't reach for pressed powders because most of the ones you can get at the drugstore are coloured and make my foundation and concealer oxidise throughout the day. Therefore a transparent pressed powder is just the right one for me and the one from Nick Assfalg has a lovely texture and also gives a great finish to the skin! I especially like to use this on the sides of my nose as I can really work this into the fines lines and small wrinkles that are there.

Catrice Cosmetics | Nude Illusion Loose Powder Transparent Matt
This loose powder started the whole baking, setting and using powder trend for me in the first place. I had heard so many great things about this Catrice powder that I just had to try it for myself and I'm definitely not regretting this purchase! It's incredible for baking and setting the concealer underneath the eyes and leaves your skin looking flawless and somewhat smooth as well! Definitely my favourite for the eye area at the moment!

technic | Soft Focus Transparent Loose Powder* 
As you can tell by the name, this is a loose powder as well and I love this just as much as the one from Catrice I just mentioned! I do like to use this to set the concealer underneath my eyes as well but I generally use this all over my face. It doesn't cling to the skin or makes it look powdery in any way, which is what I've always been looking for in a face powder! While I use the one from Catrice mainly underneath the eyes, I like to use this to add just that little bit of extra powder to the parts of my face that tend to get oily throughout the day.

Do you have any face powder favourites at the moment? x
