Happy Aloha Friday! 

New here? #FaceFriday is basically Face of the Day reborn with a fancy name m/  It’s when I use and feature almost all the products I have reviewed in the past. This week, let’s revisit my powder makeups (reviews are linked for your reference)…

best powder makeups, natural, mineral makeups, alma pure, tarte, everyday minerals

    I'm with you, those powder makeups are so messy! My fav powder is probably Stila Set & Correct Baked Powder (it's baked, but turns into loose powder from turning the grinder). I actually just ran out of it, but didn't repurchase yet.

    I love how the blush and your lippie compliment each other so nicely. Happy Friday!

    I'm a huge fan of Ben Nye powders! I have three, but I use Banana the most! It IS messy, I end up tapping it onto my small mirror and using my brush against my mirror, so I'm constantly keeping my mirror clean, too!

      I think I'm the only one left totally clueless with Ben Nye. One day I should try that brand!!!

    So pretty! I'm really loving the Laura Mercier Candlelight powder that I've been using for months but I just added to my Makeup Geek collection of loose pigments so I'll count those too!

    I agree, powdered products are messy. I used to use the tarte smooth operator finishing powder. Great pick

    I have so many powder ones! I can't even think of a favorite!

    LOL, yeah, the drawback for me with powder makeup is the time you have to take buffing.

    For foundation and blushes, I like The All Natural Face, and for eyeshadow, BFTE.

    I love the look of powder makeup, but it is messy!

    I don't do any loose powders anymore–too messy and it drives me crazy!

    • April 12, 2014 / 7:57 am

      yeah, that's the thing. and I have white vanity/desk to begin with!!!

  14. April 12, 2014 / 1:12 am

    I love your lips. I am not a fan of loose powders… having formulated a few of my own – they are messy to deal with.

    • April 12, 2014 / 7:55 am

      Oh yeah, I remember you have your makeup line!!! How's it?

    I've used mineral makeup for so long that when I use liquids, I feel I constantly need to wash my hands. I'm OK with it though. (You might think I'm partial…..you're right! ;D )

    • April 12, 2014 / 7:54 am

      That's great to know. I haven't tried that one yet, thanks for the heads up

  16. April 12, 2014 / 4:36 am

    Your makeup looks great ! I also dislike the messy side effect of mineral makeup but I use it almost daily.

    I'm not a super huge powder makeup fan but I am currently enjoying MACs Prep and Prime in Adjust. I also love Urban Decay's Surreal Skin Care Mineral Makeup but it looks like they are discontinuing it. =/

    You are so cute, Kath! I love the idea of this post, your photos, and that gorgeous lippie!

  19. April 14, 2014 / 8:22 pm
