Next up was the universal translucent pressed powder, which claims to work on all skin tones and types. It features hyaluronic acid and plant-based collagen for a smooth, skin-care-forward finish. I applied it with the product’s round sponge applicator, and while it didn’t completely mattify my makeup, it clearly toned down some of the shimmer and blurred my naturally oily T-zone. (After wearing my makeup look out for a long gym session, the powder stayed put. I did look dewier than when I started, but I didn’t look sweaty.)
After wiping off the pink lip gloss, I applied this clear one. I had so much fun with the bright LED light, which clicks on from the top of the wand, and the tiny mirror at the side of the bottle, which is simply genius. This formula was equally lightweight and comfortable. I love a shimmery clear lip gloss, so I know I’ll be reaching for this one often, and am considering treating some friends and family to it for the holidays.
