Powders have never really been my thing. Not sure if it's because I'm afraid of looking cake-faced or if it's because I'm scared it will dry out my skin even further. There have only ever been two powders which I will happily use and they're the Chanel Les Beiges and MAC MSF. They do a perfect job at keeping my makeup in place and taking away any unwanted shine whilst still feeling comfortable on the face. These two powders match my skin perfectly, but I wanted to try something that was more on the yellow side so that it could brighten up the centre of my face and set my under eye area.
I've wanted to try the Soap & Glory Kick Ass powder for a while and actually went out to buy it but ended up coming home with One Heck of a Blot instead. I was so gutted when I realised I picked up the wrong product. It was a real 'doh' moment. Eventually I went back and got the correct one and I'm so glad I did. The first time I used it to set my concealer I used a brush and absolutely hated it. It felt heavy, super drying and extremely uncomfortable. I was dying to remove it by the end of the day. However the following day I thought I would try applying it using my damp beauty blender and it made a world of a difference. This powder really does get rid of all the shine, so if you like a matte finish you will totally love this. Personally I love using it mainly on my chin to get rid of any shine from the foundation and under my eyes after I apply concealer. I think girls with oily skin will fall in love immediately, but for the dry skin girls I would say avoid using this with a brush as it can come off quite heavy, but with a damp beauty blender it's absolute perfection. It makes the under eyes look flawless, doesn't settle into fine lines and not to mention it photographs beautifully. At only £12 it's definitely a must!
