I have to say, I didn’t plan to purchase this rather pricey little tub when I popped in to my favourite store, Space NK. I was looking for a few new products to trial and I had tested out a nude base product similar to this when the MUA showed me this, after testing it on his hand, I was sold.
The Hyaluronic Hydra-Powder can be used over skincare or makeup (as a primer or finishing powder, basically), it is made of hydraluronic acid to retain moisture in the skin – technical part over, it aims to smooth over skin and give it an ultra corrective, matte finish. I’m not usually a matte-skin kinda girl, but after one use of this I was hooked. Even a small amount makes a complete difference to my skin, all pores are blurred and imperfections hidden for a flawless base that lasts all day. After a busy day out and then a cramped ride home on the underground, I was very (yet pleasantly) surprised to see how intact my makeup looked. And so a love affair begun.
I would prefer this to be pressed as it’s less mess but I know loose powder does have a more flawless finish (I should also add that I’ve never needed to top up with this, even on nights out so you won’t see me trying to open it one-handedly on the train). The price is a little steep but only a really small amount is needed so I’m hoping this powdery goodness will last me some time. I’ve already named it my “desert island” product…
What are your thoughts on the powder? Let’s not mention the price… sigh.
