I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for good setting powders on the market, preferably from Australian stores. I don't mind either loose or pressed, as long as it sets makeup well and is crease-free! Thanks a lot!
RMCA Translucent powder is amazing ! no flashback and decent pricing as well!
I'll look into it, thanks!
Maybe if you can give a few extra details like what’s your skin type? Powders suited for oily skin for example won’t suit dry skin.
What sort of finish do yo want, translucent or with a bit of a tint/coverage. Glowy or flat matte?
I could recommend suitable for normal to dry skin but if you’re oily that won’t help.
I have combination skin and don't mind whether it is translucent or has slight coverage, but I need a product that does not look cakey and will prevent creasing, especially under the eyes. I also don't mind whether it is glowy or matte, as long as it is long lasting. Thanks, heaps!
Laura Mercier Translucent setting powder is my all time favourite setting powder. It is now sold at sephora. It's so finely milled and gives a flawless look. I own many others but they all seem to be a little dry in comparison.
I have Shu Uemura Colourless Powder in my professional makeup kit. I use it because it is completely colourless (suits all skin tones) and it does not change the look of foundation underneath - i.e. matte or luminous. I can use it on dry or oily or combination skin. It doesn't make dry skin looks more dry but it doesn't control oil either. Pretty much just sets the liquid or cream makeup and that's all it does.
I purchased the Hourglass Veil Translucent Setting Powder and it is amazing, very soft, doesn't dry the skin out, and the packaging is very practical, it is expensive though, I only use it for my T-zone it will last me forever.
I have an obscene amount of powders as I find them hard to work with my normal-dry skin, more on the dry side. The clear winner and absolute HG for me lately has been the Maybelline Fit Me Loose Powder, it's amazing I can use it under my eyes and full face and it doesn't look powdery or make my skin feel tight.
It doesn't have much colour to it (well, I have shade Fair) but for my Too Faced Born This Way concealer it does change the colour of it a bit (slightly darker) but for all my other concealers it doesn't, weird but worth mentioning.
I haven't found any other cheaper/drugstore powders that work for me and the Hourglass Ambient Lighting powders are my other go-to. I use Ethereal (white/translucent) to set my under eye and Luminous all over the rest of the face. The Hourglass loose is also really good. Yes they are pricey but I've had my 2 for a good while and barely made a dent in them. The Fit Me though I'm half-way through and I've only been using a couple of months.
If you wanted oil control and shine control though I'd say these wouldn't be good for that - but I have pretty much no oils on my skin I just use the powder to lightly set my foundation or concealers. Grab the Maybelline during one of the many 40% off sales at the various shops and give that a go, then go pricier if it doesn't work.
If you are a little oilier the Too Faced Peach Perfect Mattifying setting powder. It works a treat on oilier skin (I used it over the summer, it was ok then but now it's too much). Will warn you it has a scent - it's nice but it's a bit strong for me personally as I don't like scented products on my face. Weird it actually tastes nice if you get it in your mouth too! You get a huuuuuge amount of product, I used it maybe 2 months solid and it's barely touched.
Thanks, duality! I am going to be giving the Maybelline Fit Me Loose Powder a try and hopefully look into the Hourglass products later on.
I would say Laura Mercier translucent setting powder (loose) because its soft and looks stunning on the skin but if you're going for a cheaper option then Australis Fresh and Flawless (pressed) & Colorpop No Filter (loose) are both great with similar results and no flashback !!
If you're looking for a cheap option, I'd recommend using Stay Matte by Rimmel. It's great, been using it for years without any troubles! I haven't had the opportunity to try out higher end powders yet unfortunately, but I honestly don't feel a need to with this cheaper holy grail option, haha!
My skin is SUPER picky when it comes to foundations and powders, and looks awful with most popular products! However, I have found the pressed powders by Natio, MAC, and Australis to all be fantastic.
I received a deluxe size sample of this from the recent Rewards Room. I haven't tried Olay moisturisers before but have seen plenty of advertising about it fighting the seven signs of ageing.
Everything about this product was amazing! From the luxe packaging, to the bottle and the metallic looking liquid, I felt like a million bucks!
I always love natural products. this one smell divine! Although natural products take time to see the effective but I think skin should treat something natural.
