First of all, I would like to greet everyone a very Happy New Year! I can't believe it's already 2015 because this year, a lot of things are going to happen, all exciting if I must say. I can't wait to share them all with you. :) This is my first post for 2015 and this is also going to be the first product review for 2015! I present to you a new product from our friends from GlamBox Cosmetics.
GlamBox High Definition Finishing Powder
in Manhattan 01
I received this a couple months back but took my time to test it out before sharing my thoughts.
The GlamBox Finishing Powder is an ultra-fine, sheer and lightweight finishing powder that sets your makeup, evens out coverage and gives your completion a natural matte finish!
It is the perfect accent to any Airbrushed Look! Spray on GlamBox Airbrush Cosmetics and set with the GlamBox Finishing Powder!
Use it on its own for a subtle fresh faced look or as the final step to any makeup look. Works brilliantly to flawlessly set both airbrush and traditional makeup.
They come in 3 shades, Manhattan (which is what I have), Capri (natural beige) and Rio (natural tan).
The first time I tried it out, I was already very impressed because of how fine the particles are. It really is finely milled so it blends so well to the skin. It feels so smooth on the skin and even leaves the skin feeling smooth yet still glowing.
What I LIKE:
- very light on the skin
- easily blended
- no streaky marks
- no white cast
- mattifies the face
- blurs pores
- perfect as setting powder on liquid foundation
- not cakey
- somehow "highlights" the face
- gives you an airbrush look
What I DON'T LIKE:
- Pricey, P1350. However, like what I mentioned, it comes in a big jar so you won't be repurchasing anytime soon.
- It's in powder form, so it can get messy.
- Sheer coverage
I also want to note that since it's a finishing powder, expect it to have sheer coverage. It won't give you any coverage whatsoever. I'm not quite sure with the other shades but that's what I experienced with Manhattan.
Here are some photos of me wearing the GlamBox HD finishing powder:
