PRESSED MINERAL POWDER -FEMME COUTURE-POTW

Cost:$12.99 or BOGO

STORE: Sally's Beauty Supply

PROS:
Use as setting powder
Use as a foundation(perfect for summer)
Inexpensive
Comes in a pressed powder-not messy

CONS:
You have to swatch the colors are not true to the name
It's a soft powder & a little fragile

I love this mineral powder. I swatched it at Sally's & was in love with how smooth & soft it was. I have tried it as a setting powder with a fluffy brush & a foundation with a Kabuki brush, & both have lasting power . The powder doesn't oxidize. It leave a really pretty sheen, not glitter, on the face, like the Mac Natural Skinfinish does.

I haven't had any breakouts. The powder doesn't bother my eyes or have any smell to it. My face doesn't itch either. I know all are pretty common with mineral powder.
The smoothness of this powder reminds me of the Smashbox Halo. It doesn't have the hydrating power Smashbox does, but it leaves the skin just as flawless & smooth & doesn't settle in the lines.
I think it's a great product for a low price, & something to try out without spending a lot. Sally's always has a BOGO on this too.
Have you tried this or anything from this brand? What other products are great at Sally's?

Nice review! You always do great reviews :D
I really like Rimmel's new pressed powder, the round one - it contains minerals or some stuff like that. So far so good with it! xx

I think I'll get this next time I'm at Sally's. I'm always looking for a better powder. So far Urban Decays mineral powder is still the best I've tried.

Another great product available at Sally's is the volumizing shampoo, Folicure. Nothing glamourous about its packaging, but it's a very good buy and really works. Better than anything else I've tried no matter the cost.

Consider using a optimistic affirmation to minimize pressure. Positive affirmations help to calm that nagging sound inside of us all that can cause anxiousness. Your affirmation can be as easy as "I am just able to this" or far more sophisticated, if you choose. Remember your affirmation and then use it whenever that small tone of voice begins to get you straight down. [url=http://www.x21w12w21.info]Biuyu656gy[/url]
