  1. Adding to my list for future reference: the Urban Decay All Nighter Waterproof Setting Powder; Huda Beauty Easy Bake Loose Baking and Setting Powder; bareMinerals Mineral Veil Talc Free Setting Powder; Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder (already a wish list place holder!); and the elf High Definition Powder HD Loose Setting Powder.

    How do you apply your loose powders Simone? It’s been YEARS since I last wore powder! :O

    1. Recently I have been really into a puff! I use the Beautyblender Power Pocket Puff, adding a bit of powder and dab it under my eyes and around the face. But if I want just a light bit of overall powder, I use a fluffy brush. If I’m not using the puff, I’d also like to use a small fluffy brush for under my eyes! Hope this helps. 🙂

  2. I definitely need a new powder (actually, I need a whole new base routine because my current foundation/powder/bronzer just isn’t sitting well on my skin right now, weird!) so this is very helpful. I think the $30-$40 mark is fine, as long as it’s a powder that is worth the price, like the Laura Mercier ones seem to be. I’ve heard a lot of great things about that brand but I’m yet to actually try anything from there, so I might invest in one of the powders, particularly for oily/combo skin and see if it’s worth the hype!

    1. Oh no, I hate when that happens.. it could be the weather? The Laura Mercier powders are literally top-notch, quite expensive but so worth it. I can tell when I used another powder, the finished look just doesn’t look as good as it does when I use Laura Mercier!
