Review: Mary Kay Translucent Loose Powder

Here's another loose powder review for you guys. Mary Kay sent me this product a few months ago together with the Mary Kay Finishing Spray (review to follow). After road testing it for a few weeks, I think it is time to write a review.

Because it’s translucent, this powder is the perfect match for any skin tone – from very fair to dark. It sets foundation for a sheer, invisible finish and has light-diffusing properties designed to help soften the appearance of imperfections for a skin-perfecting look. The powder feels weightless, natural and velvety soft on skin and is suitable for all skin types, even for women with sensitive skin. The long-wearing formula keeps makeup looking fresh throughout the day, controlling unwanted shine while never looking chalky. Wear it over your favorite Mary Kay® liquid or cream foundation as a finishing touch or by itself for a naturally beautiful look.
