Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

I'm still on the lookout for my HG finishing powder. Could you please tell me yours and why?

 

Thanks!

Andrea

So far the only one i really like is by L'oreal Bare Naturale. The only reason i like it is because although it does contain bismuth, it doesnt itch like my EDM finishin powder which doesnt contain bismuth. funny

I like Stardust and Translucent Silk by Lily Lolo...

 

Radiance finishing powder by Elemental Beauty.

 

I haven't really tried many others.I've used Silk dust and tinted silk dust from EDM, but they aren't really what I'm looking for, as I like a slight sheen/shimmer.I've also used a luminesce powder from Lauress, which was nice but too matte.

My favorite one is Fyrinnae's Oil Control Powder. It contains only matte mica, kaolin, and zinc oxide in it. It really helps alot to absorb excess oil from my face throughout the day. As, I hardly ever have to pull this stuff out for touchups, like I normally have to do with other finishing powders that I have. And, it never leaves my face feeling sucked dry of moisture, but instead it just leaves my face looking naturally matte, which I so love!

 

It is approximately 12 grams net weight, comes in a sifter jar, goes on transparent, and it only costs $7. I just love this stuff!

I love Lily Lolo finishing powders. Actually I love all their products in general. My favourite finishing powders of theirs are Translucent Silk and Flawless Silk. Varies depending on the look I'm going for. Translucent Silk gives more of a dewy finish with a slighy pink glow.

I love Silk Naturals Perfection Powder. It isn't heavy, doesn't change the color, helps combat greasies, and diffuses the look of my pores. I've tried 5 others and love this stuff. I'm on my 2nd full size jar.

MAD Minerals satin glow (white dewy radiance, excellent for my white skin - emphasizes the fairness),

Signature Minerals Radiance has excellent warm glow (hated the Angel, too yellow). Excellent for the summer.

 

Both of them are excellent as eye highlighters too.

I use Fyrinnae's Rice Powder Primer under my makeup. Do you think adding the Oil Control Powder over the top of the makeup will be 'over-kill'?

I agree! I love Silk Naturals Perfection Powder and also love their Date Bate.

 

I also really like Dream World's Whipped Cream and their Silk Toppings.

Well, I have oily skin and I live in Louisiana where it is hot and humid here almost all year round, so that's why I use both. Also, when I do use the Rice Powder Primer and Oil Control Powder on my face, I only use small amounts of course. So, if you do suffer from oil breakthru (especially around this time of year), or even if your mineral powder foundation doesn't wear as long as you'd like it, then I definbitely do suggest you geting the Oil Control Powder. I do wholeheartedly suggest that you get it in a sample size first, just to test it out first on your skin.

 

Oh, and if you have very dry skin, or if you would prefer a kaolin-free finishing powder, then there is one called "Mineral Finish: Clear". It doesn't contain kaolin, oil, or cornstarch. As, instead it only contains matte mica and zinc oxide. And, you can try sampling this one instead.

 

So, no using either of Fyrinnae's finishing powders wouldn't be "over-kill" for you skin!wink.gif

SN is my favorite. I hope you like it as much as I do.

 

I am thinking of trying some of the others mentioned here, but I can't really justify spending the money when I need to put gas in my car.

I like Joppas's Finishing Silk and Dreamworld's Creme Toppings because they both control oil very well.

    • My Netflix subscription is cancelled. I was only allowed the free month. I wanted so badly to watch a new show called Ares that came out Friday. I did not think I would get to see it before my subscription expired, but I did. I was able to watch it on the last day! I was so happy, because I'm not allowed to renew Netflix per my no buy rules. And I can't live with exceptions to my rules. Ares I loved and hated at the same time. I loved the cast, acting, sets, costumes, hair and makeup, exteriors, and story line. Ares is a great story about a poor and stressed college girl joining an Illuminati type of cult, in Amsterdam. But I hated all the gory horror, and they killed off so many interesting characters. The gory horror is hard to watch, and could be triggering to some. I know the gruesome elements are symbolizing something important in the story, but it's disturbing. The first episodes were good at developing the story, but at the end it was exhausting with all the violence. I think it would have been great as just a psychological drama. Still I'm so glad I got to watch it without violating my rules. Back to watching no buy videos on YouTube now. 
    • I didn't tryied the vitimin C serum cream for my skin, I think it very harsh when you are using it at your skin so it would be hard for me to have it I will try something else..
    • Today was pay day. I paid $22.90 extra on my credit card. I realized I'm now halfway done with my goal for the month - to pay $100.00 toward my credit card (including minimum payment). It's halfway through the month, so I am right on track! I made a $30 payment last week. I got deodorant, the only beauty item I need to replace. I ended up not getting the fancy new Secret or an Avon set, but just regular Secret Paris Rose from Dollar General. It was $5 - I thought that was a little high in price. I had this deo before during my No Buys, so it's a tradition. I didn't feel like spending extra or taking the time to order online. Too lazy to fill out the order pages! I sure am out of practice shopping! 
    • What am I wishing for right now? Yesterday I was looking at the Yves Rocher French website to see if they have anything new that might come to the US. I found something to love, but not a thing this time. In France, Yves Rocher has special salons. They have some fabulous sounding treatments. One I really fell in love with was an eyebrow treatment. They put eye patches under your eyes, then while those are on, they shape the eyebrows. After all is done, they apply an eye cream. That's what I'd love right now, and I suppose I could copy it at home with what I already have. 
    • It feels like it has been January for a long time, but we're only halfway through the month. There's still time to do a lot of things this month!  I have some empties! I finished my three DHC foil packets, the two mini micellar waters from my Yves Rocher Advent Calendar, and my Neutrogena Shampoo mini.  Now using up: June Jacobs Green Tea and Cucumber Shampoo mini Freeman Cucumber and Pink Salt Masque packet MAC Strobe Cream mini in Pinklite - This is a really nice cream that has a bit of pink color corrector and a bit of luminosity. It's great for a no makeup routine! Very pretty, and feels wonderful on the skin. I got it in an Ipsy bag.  I had the Freeman cucumber masque in my project use it up in January 2018. Now I have another one to use. There is a lot of product in the packet. It is enough for several weeks of use. But it is a clay masque, so it gets dry and messy in the packet. I recall having a hard time using it all up before. So I opened the packet all around the edges, and used a spatula to transfer the contents into an empty jar so it will stay fresh and be easier to use up. I'm looking forward to using it with my new masque brush! I will be having some fun masque and movie nights!
