The Best of The Drugstore Powders

Hello, my Loves!

I’ll admit it for a long time I’ve been a really bad beauty blogger, as I never believed in the magic of using a primer, as well as a powder. But I’ve now been very much converted, and see as I have shared with you all my current favourite primer, I wanted to share my 3 favourite setting powders! I hope you enjoy 🙂

No7 Perfect Light Loose Powder in Translucent

Let’s begin with the first and only loose powder of the bunch, and my most used! I discovered this powder when I saw blogging besties Sophia and Cinzia using it in their videos, to which they are blessing for introducing me to my new holy grail powder!

First of all, you get a tonne of product in such a sleek pewter pot, and a little goes a long way. I apply the powder to my t-zone, nose and under my eyes using the Real Techniques Multi-Tasking Brush, to which these are the areas I find tend to be the oiliest, and where my base tends to disappear during the day, and the powder immediately sets these areas without changing the colour of my base or looking cakey.

I would highly recommend you pick this up on your next boots trip (and take advantage of the no7 vouchers that you hide away in your purse).

RRP: £10.50

Bourjois Healthy Balance Compact Powder in Vanilla

Now onto the pressed powders, and the powder I use when I have a tan. When I have a tan I use a darker foundation and as this a dark yellow tone, although it doesn’t change the foundation’s shade, although it does blend seamlessly into my other base products.

I would love to know your opinions on the other products within the healthy mix line, as I’m intrigued by the foundation and concealer, as I love a healthy dewy finish.

RRP: £8.99

Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder in Transparent

Lastly, this is the powder I travel with and throw in my handbag, as it is the cheapest and cheerful, and it’s also the most hyped about powder on the internet!

Yet again the powder is translucent, and it doesn’t change the colour of my foundation. The only downfall is that around my nose it does tend to cake around my nose, but this may be because I’m quite heavy handed, although it does the job of setting my makeup in place.
