Illuminating finishing powders comparison swatches

I have finally managed to get some decent photos of my finishing powders yesterday, I’ve tried taking them twice so far but the weather in London just didn’t want to cooperate in the past few weeks! These are my favourite face products, I use them all a lot and rotate depending on the effect I would like to achieve on a particular day. I hope you’ll enjoy the comparison photos and find them useful!

Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder

Kevyn Aucoin sculpting powder

There aren’t many products on the beauty market created specifically for contouring. There’s plenty of bronzers and blushes that you can get away with for this purpose, but on my very pale skin those don’t work very well most of the time. They either look too warm or too yellow or don’t have a matte finish.

Lipstick Queen Saint in Bare Nude 1

Bare Nude is a shade from the Saint range by Lipstick Queen. It’s a sheer lipstick with 10% of pigment. It’s designed to moisturise and to give lips just a tint of colour. 10% doesn’t sound like much, but with its creamy formula this lipstick actually has a very decent coverage compared to other sheer lipsticks I’ve tried.
