Face powder is one of my must have products, but I find it quite stressful getting colour matched, so after reading online reviews and talking to Helen, I decided to get Urban Decay razor sharp high definition finishing powder:
The first thing to talk about is the packaging. As you can see in the photo above, it comes with a huge sponge, which is near impossible to use, as it is too big and unhygenic! Having read Helen's post, I decided to open the case and dip my brush straight in then use another lid to buff the powder into my brush before applying to my face.
The powder is nude coloured, but it applies competely translucent to the skin. It won't give you any coverage, but it does a great job of absorbing oil, smoothing over pores and giving a flawless finish to the skin.
My T-zone gets shiny throughout the day, but I hate the super matte look you get with a lot of powders, and this one is perfect for me, as it absorbs the oil but still allows the natural radiance of my skin to shine through. I do need to top up throughout the day, but no matter how much I apply, the powder doesn't ever look cakey or flat.
It retails at £17.50 which is expensive for a powder, but you do get 12g of product and it is one of the best powders I've tried, I just wish it was packaged slightly differently!
Have you tried this product? What do you use to keep your skin matte during the day?
