Loose Powders -Beauty Bakerie -Flour Setting Powder

This powder is available in four shades: translucent, pink, yellow and brown. This review is for the pink version. I pretty much got it because the translucent version was sold out, and as someone with fair skin with pink undertones, I figured I couldn't go wrong with a pink tinted powder. When it arrived, I was quite shocked at exactly how brightly pink it was, and I was a bit worried that it'd turn me really pink. It didn't though, but it did brighten up my skin considerably. I do use a light hand with powders overall, though, so if you're someone who really packs it on (and perhaps like to bake) I can't guarantee it won't show up pink.

I've been using Laura Mercier's translucent loose powder for a long time, and I really adore it, so I can't help but compare the two. So here we go: Beauty Bakerie's powder is more matte than LM, and not as dense. One of the things I really love about LM's loose powder is how it looks satin and not powdery matte on the skin, and initially I found BB's powder to look sort of dry and powdery. However, that goes away after a while when the powder has had time to sort of melt into the skin a bit. If you're using setting spray on the daily (I don't) that'll probably help, too. I also noticed how well BB's powder kept my t-zone from getting oily. I'm extremely impressed by that. My favourite everyday foundation (Lumene's Blur foundation) looks amazing, but usually start to break down in my t-zone after a few hours. Paired with this powder it lasted for 8+ hours without looking oily or breaking down at all!

When I had LM's powder I used it on my under eye area without problem, but this powder makes it look very dry. It's a shame, because its brightening effect could be good for under the eyes. I don't love having to use a separate powder for setting my concealer, but I happened to have purchased E.l.f.'s high definition under eye setting powder on a whim just before I bought this powder, so that worked out okay in the end.

The price is pretty up there. For 14g you have to shell out $24 (compared to Laura Mercier's powder which is $38 for 29g). On the other hand, this is an indie brand that make their product in smaller batches, so that's going to affect the price point, too.

The packaging is really pretty, and the little "flour bag" it comes in is a very cute detail. Love the branding, overall! My one complaint about the packaging is the sifter - a lot more powder than you need comes spilling out even if you're careful. If you travel with it, most of the powder is going to be in the upper "compartment" when you open it up.

If I were to repurchase, which I'm not opposed to but also not running out to do, I would try the translucent shade next time.

+ Cruelty free
+ Combats oils and makes certain foundation wear a lot longer
+ Finely milled and lightweight
+ Brightening
+ Cute packaging (if a little plastic-y)

- Pink version contains carmine (but the other three shades are vegan!)
- It doesn't make the skin look as flawless as the Laura Mercier powder
- Can look a little dry and powdery upon application
- Looks very dry and unflattering in the under eye area
