I’ve always been a liquid foundation wearer but lately I’ve been digging into other types of foundations. One of which are loose and pressed foundation powders. The best part of powder foundations are that they can be worn on their own or to be used as a setting powder on top of liquid or stick foundation.
This mattifying powder foundation has a lightweight but buildable coverage that blends easily. It leaves a natural complexion while blurring and covering any redness around my skin. The product stayed on all day with a few touch ups throughout the day.
In terms of packaging, the powder is separated from the sponge and mirror that is underneath, which makes it super convenient to carry on-the-go. The sponge makes it easy to dab the product into the skin (acting as a setting powder) but if you want it to be more of a foundation powder with a more even coverage, a powder brush would be best.
Overall, I think if you’re someone who has dry skin, with dry patches, I would recommend to skip this product. But for those who have normal, oily, or combination skin – if you’re looking for a lightweight foundation coverage or a setting powder, this mattifying powder foundation is exactly what you may be looking for.
What are your thoughts on Burt’s Bees Mattifying Powder Foundation? Are you a fan of powder foundation? Do you prefer translucent or skin-match setting powders?
