Sample Saturday – Dermablend

I swear that coffee tastes different depending on the mug, the bottom fell out of my favourite mug yesterday morning. So  awesome, let me tell you – especially since I was already dressed for work and wearing open shoes. I have had that mug forever so, not surprising and now I am using a new mug, my coffee tastes like bitterness and disappointment…

I received this jar of Dermablend Loose Setting Powder in one of the first Play! boxes that I received and didn’t think that I would end up using it. The reason being is that the  translucent shade is bright white and I prefer flesh tone setting powders, I haven’t tried a white translucent powder that I have liked. This is a talc based powder, it comes in 3 shades and retails at $27/ounce. This powder claims to ensure smudge-resistance and enhance wearabilty of foundation for up to 16 hours. I really like this powder, it is fine enough that it doesn’t settle into wrinkles and pores but it also lasts all day. It doesn’t make my foundation too matte and just makes my skin look really smooth. I have used it over a few foundations and it looks really nice each time. As for the 16 hour wear claim, I don’t usually wear my makeup that long but my complexion still looks fresh after 10 hours or so. I don’t know if it causes flashback, I kick off my setting powder with a powder foundation and this usually prevents that anyway. It’s a great product at a reasonable price!
