Yet another Bobbi Brown celebrity makeup artist favorite: the Sheer Finish Loose Powder in Pale Yellow. Since this is always out of stock in Naime’s and makeup artists like Ariel (Kylie Jenner’s artist) swear by it, I finally decided to try it out.
I can see why this powder has such a large celebrity following. The loose powder almost binds together when blended out on the skin to leave behind a bright and smooth finish. The colour is a pale yellow that could look ashy for medium tan skintones, but the line has additional colours to it for those who prefer another option.
This powder is finely milled to smooth out the skin and blend out flawlessly but not so fine where it dusts away when you open up the cap. This is not overly drying for my normal to dry skin and leaves me look mat enough for hours.
The powder has no shimmer or sparkles to it, so you really just have the colour and formula to rely on for the brightened effect, and this one delivers! While the swatch cant really do the product justice, it gives you a good enough idea of the colour (i’m a MAC NC35 for reference) and find this is just light enough for me.
This powder makes me forget about Laura Mercier and say bye to my expensive YSL loose powder and i’ll continue to repurchase. Finally a loose powder that brightens without drying out my skin, thank YOU Bobby!
