Best translucent face powder
Suzyseis · 18/08/2020 15:26
In my 40’s but still get shiny - I’m looking for an excellent quality translucent face powder. The best I have tried is HD Perfecting Powder by Chantecaille but it is soooo pricey and the pan broke before it was finished so am a bit reluctant to re- purchase. Any other recommendations?

Is it pressed or loose powder that you use? If pressed, Mac Blot is excellent. If loose, I like Fenty Beauty (in Lavender but they have a range of yellow based shades too). Both seem a bit dear but you get a lot/they last well.

Boots No 7 Airbrush away powder compact is excellent, often on 3 for 2. I really rate it, shade translucent.

Laura Mercier is the best in my experience.

I second Laura Mercier and Fenty Beauty (I use the shade butter)

Oh, and I keep Charlotte Tilbury magic powder in my bag for touch ups.

BeautyPie one powder wonder is very good - that's my handbag one, CT magic loose powder for when I do my makeup on the morning.

I use By Terry. It’s superb

I like Bare Minerals mineral veil. You only need a very little and it looks great.

I have tried many over the years. Current best find is Bare Minerals. Lasts a 12 hour shift with only one touch up. The second is Mac.

Another LM fan here. The pressed translucent powder is excellent - completely invisible but matifies and gives a nice “finished” look.

I've used no7 for years

I really like By Terry Hyaluronic Hydra Pressed Powder

I have slightly oily skin and find loose powder works better. I always used Corn Silk powder, which was sadly discontinued, but find Clinique Loose powder to be a good alternative

Another vote for Bare Minerals mineral veil.
seensome · 18/08/2020 19:56
Another vote for no7 airbrush compact, great budget buy and is very fine.
I also like aveda and Clinique

Oh thanks for all the recommendations- will have a look on line but maybe hold off till I can try a few in store...

By Terry Hyaluronic Hydra Pressed Powder
This is my favourite, although I think the packaging feels really cheap for something so expensive. It’s great stuff though.

A great budget loose powder is Revolution hydramat (think that's its name). More expensive but very good is Bye Bye Pores by IT Cosmetics.

By Terry here too. It is very expensive, but one pot lasts me at least a year with daily use.
Judystilldreamsofhorses · 18/08/2020 22:50
(I use a loose version.)
Craftycorvid · 18/08/2020 23:10
A moment to mourn the passing of Corn Silk 😞
However, Kat Von D loose powder is very good and doesn’t change the colour of your base.
