I use a powder more frequently than a foundation especially in summer when I don’t want to weigh down my make-up. So, a colorless loose powder is the best option to choose. You can use it as a baking powder or a product to set your make-up.
I have a mini of 1.1g. The full sized packaging has 10g and costs $82.
A dual skin care and makeup innovation, this hyaluronic acid powder is the new finishing product for flawless, shine-free and perfect hold makeup results, without drying out the skin. During the night, Hyaluronic Hydra Powder unleashes its full skin care potential. An ultra-smoothing beneficial veil that if applied over night cream, protects cell hydration and allows the skin to breathe and regenerate itself. Upon waking, features appear rested and the complexion is fresh, relaxed and more radiant.
WHY IT'S CULT
Like a real-life Instagram filter, By Terry’s Hyaluronic Hydra-Powder sets your make up and blurs visibility of imperfections to create a ‘soft focus’ effect. Ultra-lightweight and completely invisible, this controls shine without leaving skin looking dry or chalky – it won’t settle into creases or cause skin to appear unnaturally ashy – instead, hyaluronic acid microspheres attract and retain moisture from the atmosphere to ‘fill’ fine lines and wrinkles and in turn, unify the surface of your skin to leave you looking younger. Soft as cashmere and beautifully barely-there, it’s the ultimate finishing touch – just dust all over your face with your favourite By Terry powder brush, to keep your make up in place and looking flawless from morning ‘til bedtime.
You may think that 1g isn’t enough to try a product out. But 1g for a loose powder is enough, you know. I have a powder of 3g and I’ve been using it for 1.5 years and there’s still almost half left. The full sized packaging is good but it’s bulky for travelling.
My mini was packed in a beautiful shiny card box. The design is just awesome!
The powder really mattifies my skin yet it leaves a satin non matte finish. My face doesn’t look “dead matte”. It looks natural and is silky to the touch. At the same time my T-zone stays matte. Within 4-5 hours there’s no oily shine on my combination skin even in summer.
This powder is hydrating! I don’t know how this could ever happen, mattifying and hydration properties in one jar, but that’s a fact. It doesn’t dry out my skin at all! It never defines flaking or creases and never clogs pores.
My skin looks perfect throughout the entire day.
The product is colorless and seamless. Texture-wise I like to apply it on my skin and feel that silky touch. The effect is marvelous. It looks as though all my pores, creases and wrinkles are wiped away and disappeared. I even apply it on my under-eye area.
This powder suits even dry skin type.
The sifter is good. I never get too much of the powder on it.
I apply the product with a goat hair face brush. It applies the powder with a thin and even layer. This product sets my make-up in place and stays there the entire day.
Made in France
Expires within 12 months after opening. The weight is just perfect to be used before the expiration date.
My foundation stays on way better if I set it with this powder. Moreover, it looks matte for 6-7 hours.
The things I liked:
- nicely milled product
- compact and convenient product
- a little goes a long way
- pleasant to use
- lightweight texture that doesn’t dry my skin and isn’t felt while wear
- travel friendly
I highly recommend to give the By Terry Hyaluronic Hydra-Powder a go!
