Shiny is never the look you’re trying to achieve, and as a person with oily/combo skin, I can attest to the fact that it’s so hard to find a product that will provide you with the coverage needed, especially during the summer time. I discovered Dermablend Professional and was so eager to try out their compact setting powder in the hopes that it would provide the coverage I was seeking. It’s a translucent powder that works to reinforce the wearability of your foundation and concealer all day! It promises to keep your complexion matte and leave your skin looking flawless (like Beyoncé’s).
Once my makeup was set, I patted the translucent powder on the face, focusing predominantly in the t-zone area to lock the makeup in place. With just a thin layer of the setting powder, my skin immediately looked blemish-free and matte, exactly what I was going for! I spent the day under the sun at the lavender fields, so it was a great test to see how the product reacted to the heat. Towards the late afternoon, I noticed a small shine on my forehead, so I simply touched up, but I was glad to see that I was shine-free when I removed my makeup in the evening.
I was very impressed by how the product stood throughout the day, especially in the sun. The shine was so minor that I didn’t have to use a blotting paper as I usually do. I was happy to see that the setting powder gave me a better coverage than my usual pressed powder, and a little definitely goes a long way!
Fall is quickly approaching and this is when schedules begin to get more and more hectic. This compact setting powder can easily be applied after your regular makeup routine, and can be tossed in your makeup bag for touch ups throughout the day. For all the mamabears out there, whether you’re running errands, juggling meetings, rushing to pick up the kids or bringing them to their next extracurricular activity, this will be your go-to product in your makeup kit.
The Dermablend Professional Compact Setting Powder is now available at select drugstores, and you can grab yours for $34.
