Product Review: NYX HD Finishing Powder


Happy Mother’s Day everyone! I hope all of you celebrate your amazing moms (or are celebrated by your children) today! 😊

Recently I went on a hunt for a face powder and I think I found one that I like. This one is from NYX (of course) and I got the shade Translucent since…well I’m so pale!

For so long, I didn’t think face powder was important if you already use a setting spray and a primer like me. But then I heard some great things about this NYX powder and I had to try it.

It is a pressed powder that is mineral based and the Translucent shade is snow white. So only get this shade if you are very fair! They also have it in Banana and Mint Green, so there are a few options there.

I really like the formula because it does not feel heavy on my skin. Since I wear a lot of makeup, I need products that will feel lightweight and this powder definitely does that! All I do is swipe some on my powder brush and apply all over after I have applied foundation, concealer, and contour.

Even though I still use primer and setting spray, I like using a face powder because it makes everything look matte all day and I don’t have to worry about my makeup moving whatsoever! You don’t have to use all three, but I like to just to reemphasize what I have on my face.

I know there are some other great face powders out there (some more high end) BUT if you’re looking for a drugstore face powder, this one is pretty great!

Again I hope everyone has a fabulous Mother’s Day with their moms! I can’t wait to spend time with my own mom today 😚

Thanks for reading, my loves πŸ™‚ til next time

    Great review!

    When you run out give this powder in the loose version a try! Tends to last me a little longer and I find it to actually work a little better for some reason. It sounds crazy, I know!

    1. This powder for me holds on my face a lot better than the contour palette powders ever did. Personally I like the finishing powder a lot more
