🔘 The Handi Brush ($45 –
🔘 Balance Hydration Spray ($32 for 3.04 ounces –
⚫️ A calming facial spritz designed to set makeup & help balance skin’s oil production & pH

My verdict?
The primer does a nice job of smoothing out my skin & prepping it for foundation application. It takes only a little bit to cover all the areas that I want to stay mattified throughout the day. While it didn’t keep me completely matte all day, it did reduce the amount of shine I experienced. The foundation is what pleasantly surprised me. Not only do I love the concept of the Refillable Compact because it reduces waste, the Mineral Foundation is actually a really fantastic product. It has a medium, buildable coverage, makes my skin look airbrushed (see the side-by-side comparison in photo three (3)), contains SPF 20, & lasts all day! Plus, the shade Suntan works really well on my self-tanned skin. As for application, I have tried a few methods, but I just keep going back to using The Handi Brush as it has proven to give me the best results. Finally, the Balance Hydration Spray. I love it! It smells nice, has a fantastic sprayer, & sets my makeup beautifully. I didn’t find that it helped keep me matte, though, so this will likely be a spray I will reach for in the colder, less greasy months.
