Long Time No Shine Loose Setting Powder
5.0
Created with Sketch.
from

20 hours ago

I have to start out saying that I’ve been using Bobbi Brown loose powder(s) daily to set my foundation since the late 1990s. Beginning with the professional loose powder and then switching to the sheer finish loose powder when it came out around 2001, both in the Pale Yellow shade. In the fall of 2019 the sheer finish loose went out of stock (returning only just recently). Concerned my HG was discontinued, I did an online chat with BB CS on 2 separate occasions and both times I was told it was indeed discontinued. So instead of stockpiling this pricey powder I thought it was a good opportunity to try something new. With my super sensitive, slightly acne-prone, PD-prone, mild rosacea skin type, I knew this was going to be challenging! I’ve had success with Lancôme pressed powders in the past (now both discontinued, boo!), so I took notice of this loose powder and the ingredients looked “safe”. Well I’m so glad I did because this powder is amazing! I’ve been using it daily for a few months now and my skin has been doing just fine, no reactions or breakouts to speak of. It blends on invisibly on my light skin tone, setting my Shiseido TM beautifully for all day wear. The packaging is so much better than the BB as well — the sifter holes are larger so the powder comes out without struggle, the container itself is heavier and hopefully the plastic won’t crack like the BB has been known to do and the top closes easier. You also get more powder in the container and it is much cheaper per ounce than the BB! I was just on the BB website and saw that the Sheer Finish Loose is in stock and I decided not to restock, which is saying a lot! Can’t believe I have a new HG loose powder after using BB for 22 years, wow!! Now just hoping Lancôme will bring out a matching pressed version for my purse!

Teint Idole Ultra Longwear Foundation Stick

This is truly a beautiful and amazing foundation. I have mature (very good condition) skin that is combo/oily and uber sensitive. My skin will burn or immediately get a bump or pimple if the foundation has alcohol in it and many other irritating ingredients. With this foundation I have absolutely no issues. It disappears into my skin and covers what I need. My only issue is thin light skin; translation: You can see my veins-plus some broken capillaries. This covers yet does not hide my skin. The finish, on me, look natural with a light glow. It does not look matte on me! It looks natural with an absolutely lovely almost natural glow. Completely in love with it. I do not typically ear a primer. I do wear a liquid (spray) sunblock under this and I am very consistent and good with prepping my skin before I apply my makeup. My other favorites are: Surratt Dew Drops and the discontinued beloved Givenchy Photo Perfexion. On the color selection: I always have to mix colors-and I do with this foundation too. I have three shades. I mix 210 Buff (N) and 210 Buff (W). I also have Bisque in Neutral that I sometimes mix depending on the time of year and what my skin is doing. I very-lightly powder to set. I do use a super low does of Tretinoin (Retin A). This looks beautiful over my skin when I am having a dry/Retin A flaky day! Imagine this would work excellent on everyone. I apply with my Sigma Flat Kabuki F80 brush. Love it! (and, I also have a very high end stick foundation-this is much better.This stays all day.) I live in an extremely humid climate, Houston. Very few foundations last all day on my skin.) this holds up better than most. A winner! Final comment: I travel a lot for business and find the stick (and the size) excellent. No spills, no bottles to worry about. Definite love!

Teint Idole Ultra Wear Camouflage Color Corrector

I am 50 years old and have developed *very* dark circles under my eyes. I have spent a lot of time and money trying to find a product or combination of products that will make me look less haggard. I am still waiting for that perfect magical product but until then I am using two products, of which this is one. I buy this in peach to correct blue circles. It is very thick and sticky. I apply the tiniest amount w the tiniest brush over the bluest areas. I make as thin a layer as possible. I let it sit a few seconds (brush teeth or do something else), then I take a slightly damp miniature beauty blender type sponge and kind of press and rock it in place. I rinse and wring out before each eye. My goal is to not move the product around; just keep it in place and press it in. I am sure I remove more product then the amount that actually remains. I think of it as stain. Then I let it sit another few seconds. If I missed some spots or the application is too thin I might repeat it. Yes it is a time-consuming process but there is no cakey-ness w this stuff. Later I go over this with a thin concealer that matches my face color. I avoid powder, and I do NOT bring either this corrector or other concealer all the way up to lower lash line; I have too many lines and creases that only become exaggerated with stuff placed over. A tube will last forever, and it feels wasteful to picking up more product w sponge than what is actually left on skin. But it works so well under concealer and lasts a very long time.
