Make Up Forever HD Powder | Review

Monday, 22 December 2014




Hello Beauties! I hope you're all well and are looking forward to Christmas whether you're working or you've got a bit of time off. I'm off from Uni at the moment, although with the amount of revision and work I've got to get done over the holidays, you'd never know it! Anyway, let me introduce to you my new favourite powder. For years now I've been on the hunt for the perfect powder and I think I may have finally found it. 

Having oily skin, finding the perfect powder has always been at the top of my beauty list, and unfortunately I just haven't been able to find anything that ticks all of the boxes. So when my parents went to Canada recently, they kindly picked up the Make Up Forever HD Powder for me. I'm a big fan of the foundation, and I'd heard a lot of good things about the powder so I was really excited to try it out, and rightly so. 

The Make Up Forever HD Powder is a 3 time award-winning HD setting powder which leaves your skin with a lovely soft matte finish, enough to get rid of any oil and shine but without making your face look flat and powdery. The powder looks white in the pot, however it applies translucent and actually stays that way. I find that as I have oily skin, most powders oxidise on me and turn a lovely shade of orange throughout the day, so to find a powder that stays the same throughout the day is amazing. When you apply the powder, you also can't see that you've got it on your skin as it leaves such a natural finish. I have a tendency to pile on the powder throughout the day in an effort to control my oily skin, which can often leave my skin looking quite cakey, however this powder can be applied throughout the day without caking up and it just looks so natural. 

The powder is made from 100% mineral silica absorbs the excess oil on your skin throughout the day, while softening the whole look of your make up, including airbrushing fine lines and pores, which is exactly what I am looking for in my powder as I do have trouble with blemishes and pores. What I also really like about this powder is the fact that it actually lasts throughout the day. Usually, even powders which claim to be long lasting have melted off my skin within an hour, so when I found that this powder lasted on my skin at least 5 hours before I needed to touch up, I was very pleased. 

Overall, I love this powder and it's definitely reached holy grail status, I can definitely see why it's won so many awards as I've honestly never tried a powder as good as this one. I've also heard that it's a favourite of Kim Kardashians, and as I'm a massive fan of her make up that was reason enough to buy it for me - she always has flawless skin! This powder isn't currently sold in the UK, however it is available from Sephora who now ship to the UK, so if you are putting in an order, I strongly advise that you pop this product in your basket as well!

Lots of Love,

  8. I like using this powder on special occasions but although it claims to be colorless, I find that I have to blend well on my tanner skin tone...it leaves a very faint whitish cast so I like to use it under my eyes for more brightening. :)
