MAGIC FAIRY DUST
on August 14, 2012
This is not finishing powder. This is magic fairy dust. No, seriously. This stuff is MAGICAL. I'm so used to buying cosmetic products that claim to do all these great things, but really don't do anything. This does exactly what it says it will do! Minimizes your pores!
I put this over my SKIN79 BB Cream, and it looks amazing. Any imperfections that that my foundation doesn't cover, this does. I really don't know how, because it's translucent, but it does! I thought my old powder covered my pores pretty well...but then I tried this stuff, and what a difference! You can't see any of them, not even the big stubborn ones around my nose.
But my favorite thing that this does is get rid of my oiliness! I get extremely oily on my T-zone just a few hours after doing my makeup, no matter the weather, but especially when it's hot. No product that I've tried has ever helped it. But when I put this on in the morning, I'm completely shine-free ALL DAY! That is a huge deal for me!!! If it's really hot and I was doing something strenuous, sometimes I'll put a little more around my nose midway through the day and problem solved! Doesn't get cakey at all.
Oh, and the first few days I used this, it dried out my skin a lot. The first two days it made my skin feel almost unbearably tight, despite my trusty moisturizer, and I was going to stop using it. But the third day it felt less tight, and the fourth was much better, and then I didn't feel it all. I guess my skin just had to get used to it. So if this happens to you, give it a few days.
So yeah, this stuff is a bit pricey. But for the results and confidence it gives me, it's a very small price to pay!
