Best translucent face powder
47

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 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 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

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.

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.
