I used to never be the type of girl to set their make up with a powder but with being at work all day I was noticing my makeup wasn't lasting and had slipped off my face by lunch time. So I thought it was about time I started setting my makeup in an effort to stop looking a mess come 1pm!
I did have a few setting powders in my make up collection, including the infamous Make Up Forever HD Powder (nothing special in my eyes) and bareMinerals Mineral Veil (not impressed by this at all) however there was one loose powder that I really recommend. Sleek ONE Finishing Powder.
This is a loose translucent powder so suits every skin tone.It is really finely milled which makes it apply beautifully and not cakey looking. The powder itself comes with a sponge applicator in a compartment of the lid. I don't tend to use this but I guess it would be handy if you were out and about. Instead I apply this with my Real Techniques Powder Brush, which I love love love!
The powder has a tiny, almost unrecognisable shimmer to it. This can't be seen when on the face but does give natural glow, this being said it does help mattify. I really seen a difference in the lasting power of my make up when I wear this which is almost every day now.
You can usually find Sleek makeup in Superdrug or online.
