Okay, so I FINALLLLLYYY got my hands on this Wet N Wild photofocus pressed powder, and I am IN LOVE. YESSSSSSSSSSSSS.
With my foundation (I switch between Tarte and Too Faced) I usually use a translucent loose powder to set it (by Tarte), along with a matte setting spray (by NYX). After this, I usually have to set my face a few times a day, just because my skin can get pretty oily. Although I have combination skin, this Arizona weather confuses it hahah.
After using THIS product over my face makeup (no loose powder, no setting spray, etc), my face was STILL matte by the end of the day. Keep in mind that it’s already hitting the 90s in this p art of Arizona. GROSS. >_>
I am VERY iffy about products like this, because I have spent so much money trying to find something that would keep me matte (especially around my nose and my forehead).
This product, I shit you not, is the Holy Grail of pressed powders. Honest to the makeup gods. Best part? It’s $5. That’s less than I spend on a large iced coffee and 2 donuts at Dunkin’. If you have $5 to spare, I highly recommend you try this out. I purchased mine at Walgreens but you can also get it online (with shipping) here! They have an okay range of colors, but I got myself the lightest they had and it works VERY well with my skin, so I’m hoping all shades are blendable! 🙂
On another note, pictured are some of my FAVORITE beauty items for a soft, natural look- a daily wear!
- the Balm Meet Matt(e) Hughes in “Committed”
- NYX Suede Matte Lip Liner in “Los Angeles”
- C.O. Bigelow Rose Salve Tin
- SinfulColors Professional Nail Enamel in “Starfish” (can be purchased in stores for roughly $2)
I’d like to do more product reviews! I’m in love with this. Maybe let me know what you guys would like to see reviewed? 🙂 I’d appreciate it!
