|Neutrogena Shine Control Powder|
I've been looking for an invisible powder to set my makeup and use for touch ups throughout the day. Many of the most popular translucent powder options are pretty expensive, so I was very excited when I saw Neutrogena Shine Control Powder for $9 at the Walgreen's.
Neutrogena Shine Control Powder is a translucent, lightweight powder designed to absorb excess oil and create a matte, flawless makeup look. This product is delivered in a mirrored pressed powder compact with a sponge applicator. At 0.37 oz, Neutrogena Shine Control Powder is of equal size or slightly larger than more expensive translucent powders like Make Up For Ever HD Microfinish Powder ($32).
Neutrogena Shine Control Powder is very finely-milled and easy to apply evenly over your face. I recommend using a brush to apply this powder rather than the included sponge applicator for a more natural (and hygienic!) look. Neutrogena Shine Control Powder is neaaaarly imperceptible if applied lightly over makeup, though I swear I can see a slight change in color when I apply it over my blush.
I've found that I don't really like to use this product to set my makeup because it looks a little flat and cakey. I prefer to wait until later in the day when my face gets shiny and use this powder for touch ups. It does a wonderful job absorbing excess oil and creating a smooth, airbrushed finish.
I'm pleased overall with Neutrogena Shine Control Powder. I love having this affordable product in my bag to keep my makeup looking fresh all day. Plus, the large mirror makes it my go-to compact for any and all makeup reapplication tasks!
