Flawless, silky-looking skin and finishing powders often go hand in hand in achieving picture perfect skin, but the finishing powders I am most familiar with are loose powders which can get pretty messy if you are in a moving vehicle or applying on the go! One of the cult Make Up For Ever Must Haves is the HD Microfinish Powder which I enjoy, but that extra step of pouring out the powder into the lid or shaking out just enough for me to swirl my kabuki brush in is sometimes enough for me to say, “No way José”.
Well, guess what? Now, this magical, pore-minimizing powder has been created in a pressed powder format so it can actually be thrown into a purse and applied anywhere! I have been calling the new HD Pressed Powder ($41.00 CDN) the “portable beauty filter” because now my skin can look Instagram ready at any time!
HD Pressed Powder is talc-free, incredibly silky and very lightweight. There are three premium powders in the formulation that serve to give your skin a soft, flawless finish: silica, vinyl cross-polymer and micro and spherical powders. I’d love to be a makeup scientist right about now!
I tried to show you a swatch, but let’s face it this powder does its job because once applied to the skin, it is completely invisible. It has the softest texture, is very fine and makes your skin feel like a baby’s bum! I have been using it after applying foundation and blush making my skin look just a little bit softer, smoother and almost “blurred” in appearance.
I have been religiously using this every single day for the last week because I love that the effect is noticeable, yet subtle enough that everyone will just think your skin is baby soft and wonder what you’re using! This invisible powder works for all skin tones and feels like you have nothing on your face. I have even been using it on top of tinted moisturizer and I can still see a difference in the surface of my skin. When it comes to velvety, flawless looking skin, Make Up For Ever has been doing it for what seems like makeup eons, so I think they hit the nail on the head with this product!
HD Finish Pressed Powder is available exclusively at Sephora, Sephora.ca and MAKE UP FOR EVER Boutiques across Canada.
