Anything that claims to be shine reducing catches my attention. When, along with that, it’s highly rated, I don’t hesitate in picking it up! This product absolutely fit that bill so today, I am testing the @lancomeofficial Long Time No Shine Loose Setting & Mattifying Powder ($39 for .52 ounces – https://shopstyle.it/l/bcGMW).
What it claims:
🔘 Set your makeup with this invisible loose setting powder
🔘 It controls excess oil for a shine-free look with no drying effect, white veil or extra coverage
🔘 Perfectly weightless, the powder blurs imperfections, increases foundation wear and preserves color while leaving the skin soft and comfortable in a flawless matte finish
🔘 There are two (2) shades available – Translucent (for fair to medium skin tones) and Deep (for medium to deep skin tones). I purchased Translucent.
🔘 I have worn this on several occasions and apply a generous amount to my t-zone and a light dusting to the rest of my face.
👍🏻 I have applied it with both a sponge and a brush and it applies well both ways.
👍🏻👎🏻 It sets my makeup well. Not as pore-filling as my current favorite, but it does lock everything in and doesn’t appear to heavy on the skin.
👍🏻👎🏻 Using my current favorite foundation with my favorite powder, I can normally go an entire day without feeling the need to blot. Using my current favorite foundation with the @lancome powder, I feel as though I have to blot around hour six (6).
While this powder looks nice on the skin, the fact that it doesn’t keep me as shine-free as the name would indicate is a deal-breaker for me. In the winter, I am not at my oiliest, so if it can’t keep me looking matte this time of year, it has no hope for summertime. I’ll absolutely use it up, but won’t be repurchasing.
If you have oil-control issues, what powder do you use to set your face?
