I had used a half size version of this when it was on special at Sephora before, and while it wasn’t my HG loose powder, I decided to buy this so I can salvage my Origins All and Nothing loose powder which was too dark.
Cover FX is a Canadian company so at least we pay the same price (CAD$32.00) as in the US. It is cruelty free and made in Canada as well. I bought this at Shoppers Drug Mart.
Even though it says translucent, it also says ‘light’ on the packaging. This comes in two shades – Translucent and Dark but the Translucent I got also says Light. The powder appears almost white, so at least I won’t have to worry about oxidizing! As I mentioned, I bought this to mix with Origins All and Nothing which is why I don’t mind this powder being white.
The finish of this (without mixing with All and Nothing) is fairly white, with shimmer in it. I wish it didn’t have the shimmer but it isn’t a bad thing when you have dry skin like mine. It optically blurs out the fine lines. When I mix this with All and Nothing, I get a real perfect finish because All and Nothing is slightly darker with no shimmer, and somehow, it’s like one of those cosmic experiments gone right, because I get the best powder by mixing the two!
Well, the two cost me $63 (plus taxes) but at least I don’t waste either. On its own, Setting FX Translucent Setting Powder is good, though a bit lighter than my natural skin tone. For the amount you are getting (13g) it’s a very good value. This is talc free and doesn’t irritate or dry out my skin, so it’s pretty good for me.
