bargain buy! NYC pressed mineral powder
So after nearly 2 months of no-buy, I broke my no-buy (but hey.. 2 months is impressive) and bought something to make me happy. I had a very depress day when I was told I was not good enough... sigh.. well i’ll keep going..
I am not sure. I think it is an imitation of the famous NYX brand (which I heard is coming to London)
All i know it is known for their mineral powder, My Beauty SPot did a good review on this.
Where can you find them?
Superdrugs. Which is just your local shop really
big smile please
The mineral powder cost only 3.99
and the face powder is 4.99
total damage is 9GBp for 2 items (15 USD)
Pressed Mineral Powder
They offer the loose powder and pressed powder. But i choose pressed because it is easier to carry when travelling
packaging wise : is really drugstore. No fancy and it makes you don’t want to buy it
However, if you look pass the packaging it is pretty ok
I have not tried other mineral powder but feel this is really good. No caking and gives a smooth complexion.
My skin has cleared up a lot (until I used that l’egere again..) and applying the mineral powder gives me a natural healthy look.
I use the body shop kabuki brush because it is a lot softer and good in applying
Is there any con I can pick on? nearly nil
absolutely love the fact it is only 7 USD...
my first experience with mineral powder is great so far. but won’t be replacing my liquid foundation
the shade in Natural Beige is a perfect match as well (to NC 30)
(I’ll do the face powder in a separate post)
