As you might remember I started using Lush Cosmetics back in May 2016 and I was over the moon with their products.
Yet, a few things changed for me.
My skin become very oily and honestly I cannot figure out why.
Lush’s brilliance setting powder is supposed to help combat oily skin for that matte look. Yet after trying several times with different product combinations, I couldn’t keep that matte look long enough throughout the day.
I constantly had to keep re-applying the setting powder every few hours. And with it being a loose powder the re-applying process was not easy, especially when you’re out and about.
I cannot say enough how heart-broken I am, as I love Lush and truly believe in their makeup products. And it’s not them, it’s me, as I’m still trying to figure out a new skin care routine that will work with my skin.
So unfortunately I had to break up with some of Lush’s makeup products. Which led to searching for the best setting powder that would stay on most of the day.
And I found the most amazing one to-date.
I’ve replaced their translucent setting powder with the Becca Blotting Perfector Setting Powder. AND you guys, after wearing the setting powder for several hours, it’s still on! I can’t get over this.
Becca’s setting powder is a pressed powder that is easy to apply on the go.
If you’re curious about the differences in price points here you go:
- Becca Blotting Perfector (now, discontinued) is $38 for 0.38oz
- Lush Cosmetics Emotional Brilliance is $19.95 for 0.2oz
If you have an oily-combo skin like I do, then I definitely recommend you give this a try.
I’ve been so happy about this new find.
Especially, since I only have to reapply once to keep my makeup matte for the rest of the day.
