Because I don’t particularly enjoy having my foundation and concealer move around my face like a team of synchronized Solid Gold Dancers, I wear powder. That said, I don’t like my face to look too powdered, if you know what I mean.
Apparently, I’m not the only one out there who likes a non-powdery face, because this new loose powder from Hourglass has already sold out a couple times on their website since it launched earlier this spring.
Hourglass Veil Translucent Setting Powder ($46 for a 0.36-oz. jar of loose powder)
I really like it. I’ve had it in rotation for a few weeks with different bases and concealers on my combo skin, but I’d slow ya’ roll if you’re ultra oily, because it breaks up the foundation between my eyebrows, which is the oiliest area on my face, by the end of the day.
“The magic of Veil transformed into an ultra-refined loose powder designed to give skin a naturally flawless finish. This finely-milled, weightless powder is formulated with soft-focus light-reflecting particles to instantly blur imperfections and minimize the appearance of pores, fine lines and wrinkles for effortlessly smooth skin. The translucent formula can be used on all skin tones for an invisible, natural skin finish.”
I feel so bougie when I apply it with the $64 (!) dual-ended Veil Powder Brush, which is a joy to use, and I like that I can’t see a speck of the powder once it’s blended in.
Smaller-looking pores? Yes. Settling into fine lines? No. Flashback? Shockingly, no. Finally, a transparent powder that really should work for all skin tones. If you swear by MAC Mineralize Finish Natural, I think you’ll be feeling this, too.
P.S. A little goes a long way.
❤️❤️❤️❤️ 4 out of 5 hearts.
Did you know? Hourglass infused Veil with diamond 💎 powder, which is supposedly how it can reflect light without any flashback. Fancy!
