Hello beautiful people!
Welcome (or welcome back) to my Best of Beauty MONTH-LONG countdown! Every day of this month, I will be doing reviews on 31 of my favorite beauty products that I tried in 2018.
If you have been subscribed to the blog for a little while, you may be super confused as to why this product is on my Best of list. Back in August, in my Don’t Fall into the Trap post, I mentioned this product as one of my all time purchase regrets. However, after months of use (because I mean I have it so why not), this product has become one of my HG products– meaning I will buy it again when it runs out despite the steep price and initial regret. Yep, the Hourglass Veil Translucent Powder is just that good.
Now, I will still admit that my reasons for purchasing this were completely flawed, but now that I’ve had it and used it, I can actually see what all the hype is about. This powder is amazing.
Why do I love it?
If you are looking for a powder that takes away the oily shine while setting your makeup and adding a filtered, softly slowing powder, this one is it. No matter how much I cake it on, it never looks cakey or dry. It actually does set my makeup in place and really adds a healthy glow to the skin without being overbearing (I would not go as far as using it for a highlighter though).
Would I use this in the summer? Probably not in my T-zone. But, ever since the weather got cooler and my skin got drier, I also have been having trouble forcing myself to use other powders. While some of my other powders have been making my skin look and feel dry and textured (especially under my eyes and on my forehead between my brows), this one is doing the exact opposite. And for that reason, it is no longer a purchase regret, but an all-time fave.
Do you guys have any products that you completely changed your mind about? I’d love to know in the comments below.
