NYX Stay Matte But Not Flat Powder Foundation in (05 Soft Beige) $9.50 (NYX cosmetics online store)
e.l.f. kabuki face brush $6 (elf online store)

This is my current go to setting powder and powder foundation combo. I purchased this back in July from the NYX site based on a YT EmilyNoel83‘s suggestion. I’ve been using it for the past three months and it hasn’t left my makeup box! I really like using it as powder foundation on good skin days or as a setting powder over liquid foundation on days when I want more coverage. I find that the claims of being “matte but not flat” are spot on. I stay matte for about 6-7 hours and may need a light touch up afterwards.

I like to use my huge e.l.f. kabuki brush because in 1-2 sweeps I’m fully applied and ready to move on. The brush is so very soft!

The color looks a bit light in the picture but blended out it looks perfect on my light-medium skin tone. I find the powder to be finely milled, smooth and applies beautifully. The powder is matte and doesn’t contain any shimmer or sheen. The compact includes a large mirror and the pan lifts up to reveal a powder puff. There’s a hefty amount of powder in here so there’s definitely value for your buck. (0.26oz / 7.5 grams)

Ta da! Can’t you see my amazing swatch of the powder? ..no?
Well it’s really hard to take a capture a face powder because it blends seamlessly into my skin.

Anyways, I highly recommend checking out this powder. It’s a great product.  The magic about the powder is that it provides mattifying effect without stealing dimension from your face. It’s not cakey and there’s isn’t anything in it to make you look like a glitter ball. It’s a solid product.

(Highly Recommend)
