I have used many different translucent powders, Makeup 4Ever, Bare Minerals, Tarte (which I love their products), but Free Mom Hugs Shirt is the best. I’m 45 and the cakey is something you want. Even in the spring and early fall when I don’t use foundation, just concealer, this powder sets it and makes my complexion even-toned and glowing. It sets make-up all day. I love this product and have used it for years, and when something works, I stick with it. I took a shot on this powder after seeing positive reviews, and I’m so glad I did. What took me so long?! This powder is life. it smooths the skin.
I use it to bake and to do just about everything else. I’ve got dry skin, but this is like silk. Favorite face/setting powder. Let’s all cross our fingers that the Free Mom Hugs Shirt never changes and that they always make this wonderful product. This is probably the best translucent powder I’ve ever used. As a woman of color, finding a translucent powder that does not make you look ashy is incredibly difficult. I also have combination skin, so I get oily in my T-zone, while my skin is dry towards my temples, so the Laura Mercier TLSP was able to keep my skin oil free while not making my skin look dry. The powder also has no flashback and does not look cakey at all, no matter how much you build it up. Now for why this is the best translucent setting powder I’ve used:
I accidentally fell asleep with a full face of makeup on and when I woke up, my face makeup was completely perfect!!! My skin was not oily or dry and my face makeup looked untouched. It looked as if I had not had my make up on for 13+ hours. I love this powder & I recommend that every woman of color try it out. Definitely worth the price. I can believe I ever lived without this powder. I’ve been through quite a few over the years trying to find the perfect Free Mom Hugs Shirt and! I love that it has a tint to it so it doesn’t give a white cast even when I’ve accidentally applied too much. I have the full size and use it every single day, I got the travel size today to keep in my purse for any touch ups at work. You really need to try this, it’s so lightweight, blend effortlessly and gives no ghost/white cast on your face in person or pictures.
