Ever since setting powder with a pink hue went viral on social media, I have been looking to pick one up to test out. Unfortunately, they’re always sold out! Then, I saw someone rave about the @elfcosmetics Halo Glow Setting Powder ($8 for .24 ounces – https://rstyle.me/+0ySvIvy5HhJHmbwbPo5pIg) and I jumped over to @ultabeauty’s website to see if there was a chance it was still in stock. Thankfully it was and, back to how I started this introduction, it even came in “Light Pink”!
What it claims:
🔘 Loose setting powder feels weightless feel on the skin
🔘 Creates a soft glow without shine
🔘 Smooths the look of pores and fine lines
🔘 Blurs imperfections for a soft-focus look
🔘 Formulated with lab-created Sapphire Particles
🔘 Proud to be 100% vegan and cruelty-free, worldwide
🔘 Formulated without phthalates, parabens, nonylphenol ethoxylates, triclosan, triclocarban, and hydroquinone
When I am wearing a full face of makeup, I use two (2) different powders – one (1) for my under eyes and one (1) for my t-zone. Since I require mattifying on my t-zone, I didn’t use this product there. I applied this two (2) different ways – both with a brush and a damp beauty sponge (usually my preferred method). As I suspected, I did prefer the finish I got with the damp beauty sponge, so that would be how I would use it going forward. Immediately after the initial application, I really loved how smooth and hydrated my under eyes looked. There was a slight glow, but it didn’t look shiny. However, at the end of the day, I wasn’t super happy with how my skin looked in the places I had put this. They looked a little too glowy and had creased more than normal for me. Reading reviews, it sounds like people with dry skin are obsessed with this product, so if that’s you, definitely give this a go! I’ll be looking to pass mine along to someone who has the skin type for it.
