I bought this little baby a couple of months ago. Since then it’s been revamped with new, though oddly similar packaging. Looking at the reviews, I’ve found the sentiment is the same so I decided to give my little two cents. Before we get into that, let’s go over a few quick facts about the brand:
- The brand is owned by mega conglomerate L’Oreal.
- They are cruelty free.
- They are named after a Greek goddess of the night.
Now let’s get down to business. A few months ago I had no idea what a finishing powder was and NYX was my first. I was confident in buying a cheaper powder to learn and grow with. The powder is $10.00 with only two shades (Light/Medium and Medium/Dark).
I did my makeup like normal and put the powder under my eyes. Normally I would put it all over but since I’m testing it out I Wanted it in a controlled spot just in case.
Unfortunately there’s this terrible white cast. It would be fine if I were a diva and could shout “No flash photography” to the slew of paparazzi chasing me down as I’m leaving whole foods. Sadly, that isn’t my life.
I’m still on the hunt for a good finishing powder. One where I can set it and forget it.
Until Next We Meet,
