i bought this little gem back when i was a HSN addict =] stacie was on talking about her trip to italy, she would go there just to meet this guy in a little back shop where they made this finely milled powder for opera singers and wigs, it was a yellow gorgeouss powder that she swore one day she would bring to America. and she did =]
after seeing the demonstration, i knew i had to have it, im a sucker for cute stories like that and on top of that, it has the prettiest packaging! its a square compact with a baby pink color with shimmers on it, and on the top in silver is the brand YBF..there is a stamp in the powder with her cute logo, i just loveee the packaging!
the powder itself, is very very fine, its so fine, it melts when you touch it, its also a bit messy so you don't want to use your brush roughly..you don't need much which is good. it has a yellow tint, which is on the cooler side, but i know girls which warmer skin have used this and it looked beatiful. this is made for taking away the redness in your face, if you have a blemish thas red, or any discoloration, this powder will diminish it. it is not just made for that though. i have almost perfect, non oily, non dry skin, no acne scars, and i don't ever break out so i don't need to cover blemishes, i also don't have any redness..but this is also an absolutely amazing setting powder, and that's what i use it for. when im finished with my mac studio tech foundation, ill use a beauty powder to set quick, or just use this alone, it adds the most perfect blurr to my face. its amazing how much i notice when im wearing this..in a good way, it makes a huge difference, and makes me feel polished, classy, and beautful. it is a good product as a blot powder, but i would suggest mac's blot powder instead of using this, you only want to use this to set, if you keep applying, im sure you would turn yellow. i have also used it to set my undereye concealer..either my mac studio moisturecover..benefit's erase paste..or the creme' that i bought along with this..its a yellow creme' exactly like benefit's lemon aid. i will set with this powder and it will lighten up my eye's even more.
overall, i adore this powder, it has lasted quite a while, and i couldn't bear to not have it on my vanity..its so pretty to look at, lasts a long time, and also works amazing..i can't say i have many products that hit a homerun like this! if you have any questions about this powder, the creme' i mentioned, or ybf in general, let me know! id be happy to tell you where to get it. i suggest you do, i seriously have not found anything like it..i can truly say..this is NOT dupable.
