Mary Kay Translucent Loose Powder

By Eula @omgaeula
Mary Kay Translucent Loose Powder Mary Kay Translucent Loose Powder is a sheer powder for makeup setting and oil control. Finely milled, silky as heck, it blends in seamlessly with numerous bases. Remember when I said I needed a finishing powder when using Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer locally? This is the perfect solution.

Translucent. Sheer. It’s every woman’s perfect shade.
Like a mineral powder, this 11-gram pot is rich in mica and silica. Fragrance-free and non-comedogenic, it should be safe for sensitive skin.
Mary Kay Translucent Loose Powder Let me take a moment to rave about the packaging. It's one the smartest I've seen -- the sifter locks so that no powder spills onto the cap even if it tumbles around. This makes it ideal for chucking into your purse for touchups.

Like most translucent powders, this appears white and gives you frightening geisha-face upon application. But it quickly settles into a sheer, invisible powder. It has microparticles of shimmer that diffuse light, giving you a matte but not flat finish. Its light-scattering properties also result in a brighter complexion and minimizes the appearance of pores, lending a soft focus effect.
When setting makeup, I always prefer to use a loose powder rather than a pressed one because I find that the former is less likely to cake. Using a powder brush, I pat pat pat gently all over my face to remove excess shine. A little goes a long way. I love using it over a dewy base such as the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer, it gives such a natural finish. Unfortunately this doesn't last particularly long on my oily T-zone, about 3 hours. This is combination is best for those with dry skin. With more matte bases like Etude House Sun BB cream and Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow liquid foundation, you look a little more made up (polished) and it lasts longer, about 6 hours. The longevity isn't much of an issue here as it is with other loose powders because again, the packaging is tops. Never again experience the fear of powder exploding inside of your bag!
Mary Kay Translucent Loose Powder Mary Kay also has a line of brushes, which feel synthetic but I can't be sure. This cheek brush is big enough to use as a powder brush! It's a little scratchy...but it gets the job done in a pinch.
Mary Kay Translucent Loose Powder Mary Kay Translucent Loose Powder Mary Kay also has this large but lightweight dual-mirror compact, one side of which is a magnifying mirror. It comes with a cute lavender-pink pouch and has found a home in my purse.
