I used to never use finishing powder, I didn’t understand the purpose and it felt like an extra step when I tried. I used a few finishing powders in the past, like MAC Prep + Prime Finishing Powder and Maybelline Master Fix Setting & Perfecting Powder. I felt like they didn’t do anything other than cover my bathroom counter tops in powder. My skin is really dry, so it could be that the powder was too loose for my needs.
I love to watch YouTube makeup tutorials to see what is out there and get out of a makeup rut. Every single one I said that a finishing powder is needed to set your make up and give you a glow. I did some research on Ulta’s website to see what is out there and what people are saying about each product. I came across NYX HD Finishing Powder, with 4.5 stars, over 300 reviews and a price point of less than $10 I knew this product was the one for me.
I purchased the NYX HD Finishing Powder in Banana to help brighten my skin and reduce redness. My skin tends to hold some red around my nose, which I like to eliminate. It’s a mineral base so it goes on super smooth, doesn’t settle into creases (who really wants that!?!?) and provides an airbrushed look. Some mornings I wake up with dark circles under my eyes and it does a really good job of brightening me up.
Thanks for stopping by!
