Spring is all about looking fresh-faced with a healthy glow; the new mark. Set Things Right Loose Perfecting Powders ($12 USD) are meant to set foundation and remove oil & shine while leaving a natural, luminescent glow. The powders are available now online or from your mark. representative in 3 universal shades.
I used the shade Medium, which seemed as if it would be too dark for me at first, but they are very sheer so it matched perfectly. I loved how this powder made my skin look after applying it. It really did exactly what I claims… it removed any shine and pores to make my skin look fresh, but it has a luminosity to it that gives you the appearance of glowing skin (not shiny, just glowing). It’s really beautiful, and it does it all without any visible shimmer.
The problem arose about 2-3 hours after applying it. My skin looked more oily than when I first applied it… and I don’t even have oily skin. After a little while, the artificial glow just turned into shiny, oily-looking skin… so I’m definitely not a fan of that.
I would recommend these powders for those with very dry skin… but anything on the oily side of normal, stay away from it. It’s hard to say that, because I adore how they look when freshly applied… but really, it’s only a good thing if it stays that way. I supposed you could always touch up throughout the day, but I don’t want to have to rely on that, knowing my skin is going to look icky in a few hours.
