I recently picked up some goodies from Catrice and one of them was the Colour Correcting Mattifying Powder which I hadn’t tried before! I am always looking for a good powder as I tend to get super duper shiny when I don’t wear one but I hate the look of a caked on powder finish.
What they say:
The ultra-fine, silky-matt powder corrects and evens out colour irregularities – for a radiant, healthy finish with a natural matt look. The combination of four different colours makes this possible: pink freshens-up tired complexions, purple gives dull skin lustre, green neutralises redness and beige supports the natural skin tone.
What I think:
I am always scared of products that claim to do quite a lot like this one being mattifying and color correcting but I was really pleasantly surprised by this powder. When I tried ot in store I already felt it had this soft silky finish with almost a hint of a glow to it, not a shiny glow but kind of an iridescent one. It had all these pretty colors as well although I kind of thought it was just for show. When I put it on over my foundation though it was all kinds of amazing. It blended like a dream with my big soft fluffy brush and left my skin looking almost like it had no foundation on. It made everything totally flawless but not at all cakey and it actually lasted a good couple of hours in heat before I had to reapply it again which made me so happy. The last things I feel like doing is getting out my powder every two seconds so I think in winter I wont even have to!
