I always carry powder with me to give myself touch-ups throughout the day. Who wants a shiny face? Right!
The problem with powder is that compacts usually come with a sponge or puff- which I hate. They are dirty, gross and collect oil.
I prefer to apply with a brush, so I have to pack a separate brush in my already crowded handbag and somehow Jenga place it in there. Every time I take it out to use it creates an epic struggle to put it back in its place.
Another thing that irks me about powder compacts is that they tend to shatter. When I say shatter, I mean explode all over the inside of my designer handbag creating a full crop dusting effect over everything inside.
A few weeks ago I introduced you to Eve Lom by way of their fantastic cleanser.
Now I have another Eve Lom product that I am TOTALLY obsessed with to share with you that solves the compact dilemma once and for all, Eve Lom Sheer Radiance Translucent Powder.
It’s a convenient brush included power that I can never again live without! The design resembles a pill capsule- the bottom half is a semi-transparent plastic section which contains the loose powder and the top half is a retractable kabuki brush with a metal cap.
What Is It: a luxurious light-reflecting powder that nourishes your skin.
What Does it Do: Innovative multi-faceted particles blend effortlessly and deflect the light to illuminate and disguise imperfections while moisturising BerryFlux Vita™ stimulates the skin’s natural hyaluronic acid to lock in hydration. Rich in antioxidants, it strengthens the skin’s natural barrier, and helps preserve collagen and elastin for suppleness and tone.
How Do I Use It: To apply, take off the cap, lower the clear sleeve, the loose powder will appear at the tip of the brush, then you can dust onto face. If more powder is needed, you can either move the clear sleeve up and down to trigger more powder, or just shake the tube lightly for more powder to slide to the brush. When finished, pull the clear sleeve up and replace the cap.
Why Do I Love It: My skin looks RE-DIC-U-LOUSLY good! Even, supple and literally glowing. The power left my skin is soft to the touch. It takes away my shine but my face never looks cakey. The brush applicator makes it a perfect on-the-go beauty tool and it feels velvety soft on the skin.
