Too Faced Absolutely Invisible Translucent Pressed Powder

I’m a big fan of skin primers. Mineral makeups are almost always a medium/buildable coverage deal, and sometimes I need FULL coverage. Skin primers help give me that extra mile that makes me look flawless even when my skin isn’t. Also, after a long day, sometimes you end up looking shiny. Primers help fix that.

So I tried out Too Faced’s Absolutely Invisible Translucent Pressed Powder ($22.50) and liked it. It’s a very unusual powder that gives you that flawless, smooth glow to your face without making you look pale. It does take some getting used to.

I put the powder on (with the sponge provided) after my moisturizer, but before any other makeup. It’s a white powder that blends really easily into your skin and it can go with any skintone. But you REALLY need to blend it in to avoid looking pale/cakey. It won’t irritate dry skin, which is nice. Unfortunately, it doesn’t give any extra coverage for things like blackheads.

The powder leaves your skin feeling extremely smooth and gives a great base for concealer/foundation/powder. I use it underneath my Laura Geller Balance-N-Brighten primer, since the two do very different things, and beneath my Jane Iredale mineral makeup. I never have an ounce of shine with this- not even at rock concerts! And my skin looks so smooth and tight, it’s almost surreal. Yes, this TIGHTENS skin. It’s chock-ful-o’ vitamins and minerals for your face that basically rejuvinate it. You can see a difference in your skin’s quality within days of using the Absolutely Invisible Translucent Powder.

If you have oily skin, this is truly a must. But I will warn you that this DOES NOT mix well with liquid foundations. Powders, especially mineral, are the way to go when using this primer. Use a light hand with this so you don’t overapply and look cakey, but I’ve yet to have a problem with that.
