“You’ve paid how much for nothing?!” a quote from one of my best friends after I told her I’d just bought a translucent powder for £38 (insert monkey covering its face emoji here).

This wasn’t quite as a compulsive buy as it sounds, I’ve actually heard good things about this powder so wanted to give it a try. The lady in the shop helped me pick the right one for my skin tone, so the palest one of course.

I LOVE it, I actually love it. It’s described as “a wardrobe of six universal finishing powders that recreate the most exquisitely flattering light.” Honestly, that’s a true statement, I have to admit I read that and though psssht yeah right, but it really is amazing. I use the powder after foundation just like you would with any other translucent powder, I tend to use my biggest brush to get the best coverage. It sets foundation really nicely and just gives my face this really nice glow. Since using it, I’ve actually had some comments about my complexion and how good it looks recently, and that to me means this is a winner and is here to stay!
