Powder Contemplations

Being a girl with very oily skin means that powders are very, very important to me. They don't just set my makeup, they make sure that people can't see their reflection on my shiny forehead an hour into the day. My sister has recently given me some powders she didn't want anymore so I thought I'd talk about them a little, as well as about an old favourite of mine.

Catrice Powder

I really like the sleek packaging of this powder, and while it doesn't have amazing oil control, I do also like the product. I like to use this on days when I'm not wearing foundation and buff it into the skin with my Real Techniques Buffing Brush, which gives me a tiny little bit of coverage and ever so slightly evens out my skintone.

This is actually a tad dark for me as a powder but I love it as a bronzer to use on the high points of my face, or even all over, for a subtle bronzed look. It's only a tiny little bit too dark for me so I don't have to worry about being too heavy handed with it and lets face it, it looks absolutely gorgeous in the pan.

Soap and Glory One Heck Of A Blot

This is an oldie but a goodie- I've been using this powder for absolutely ages now and even though I stop occasionally to try out others, I always come back to this one. It's extremely finely milled, translucent and sets my makeup without looking cakey. I wouldn't say it keeps me matte all day but I don't have to powder for an hour or two when I use this, which for me is pretty good! It also doesn't cake up when you layer it on during the day so this is definitely a favourite of mine!

What is your favourite powder? I'm thinking about investing in the MAC Blotting Powder... Any advice?
