I've been very loyal to Benefit's Hello Flawless but I'm on a serious economy drive at the moment and really can't justify £25 on face powder. Can you recommend me a brand that has just as good coverage but at a fraction of the price? In particular I have red veiny cheeks which HF covers, umm... flawlessly.
Thanks for all the recommendations. I bought Max Factor Creme Puff today and am really impressed. It covers as well as Hello Flawless, but doesn't clump in my dry patches like HF does. Hasn't lasted as long but at £6.99 instead of £25 I can afford a top up application!
Yes, I use smashbox photo finish primer first, then nars sheer matte foundation and then the creme puff. I just give it about a minute in between to let the foundation settle on first before using the powder. Also, the sponge applicator thing that comes with it, is naff. You can get softer powder puffs in boots or superdrug, and they make the coverage flawless. Hope it helps X
