RCMA No Colour Powder ($12 CAD)
This is an incredible powder to bake the under eye with, brighten up my complexion and set any creams or liquids on my face to prolong the wear. This also gives the skin a smooth velvet finish and leaves nothing to be desired from other high end powders. Truly love this as a one stop shop
Givenchy Prisme Libre Powder ($66 CAD)
These powders add the most beautiful brightening effect if applied the right shade under the eye or the most flawless base if dusted over the face. The finish is a matte (that’s not flat or dry looking) and it enhances my complexion in the most incredible way. It doesn’t look like makeup on the skin and the effect of adding dimension, brightness or cohesion to my makeup looks are left behind. My only one wish is that the yellow part of the Taffetas Beige powder was larger because I tend to reach for that quadrant a lot more than i do the other pink or beige shades. If each colour was sold separately, I’d be in under eye setting heaven.
YSL Souffle D’Eclat Poudre Libre Translucide ($62 CAD)
Everything except the naming conventions on these powders is amazing. The shade I have is a banana yellow that is called Pink Attraction. It is quite confusing. Naming aside, the powder is the perfect mix between not being too finely milled but soft enough to glide on effortlessly onto the skin and set my concealer without leaving any trace of powder behind. This does do a nice job of brightening my under eyes but not as well as my RCMA or Givenchy powders do. This one really plays well in setting my under eyes beautifully while still allowing me to maintain a natural radiance in my skin.
