How would y’all feel about me doing a #FiveFavorite series? I was going through my makeup collection and decided that I wanted to take some time to really sort through what products I really love and want to use, and which ones I don’t. I was looking through my powders and dug up a product that I LOVE but always forget to use... thus starting my #FiveFavoriteSettingPowders 🙌🏻 series.
I always forget that I have this @benefitcosmetics #ThePorefessional shine-vanishing PRO powder, and I don’t really ever hear anyone talking about it. That’s a shame because I love this powder so much! I got this a few years ago, back in oilier days, I’m sure from a Sephora employee recommendation... and I’ve always kept it as my “travel” powder. Some people find the unconventional packaging inconvenient, but I always thought it was perfect for on the go. (Id just tap a little into my palm and use a large fluffy brush to pick it up) It’s super light, spill proof, non-breakable, and doesn’t take up a lot of room.
So in my travel makeup collection it sat, forgotten (bless it’s heart), until I recently pulled it out and remembered how much I really loved what’s INSIDE the bottle! I am not in need of big time oil control at the moment, but this powder doesn’t dry me out, so it still works wonders. I love it for two reasons... 1) It truly does minimize pores and leave you skin looking super smooth and 2) The beige color works to cancel out redness. This is my go-to type of powder on the kind of day where I don’t want to wear foundation, but just smooth my face out with primer and want a little extra something to further even out the skin tone. OR for on vacation (which tends to be in hotter climates for us) when I really do need that zero-shine element to come through. Either way, I think this is a hidden gem that deserves way more attention than it gets!
