Hidden Gem At the Drugstore: NYC Loose Powders

I am a sucker for a good translucent powder and I had seen some really good reviews on the NYC Smooth Skin loose face powders ($4) so I decided to give them a try and review them for you guys!

I have the shades Translucent and Naturally Beige and let me just say, these powders are AWESOME!!

Naturally Beige has a hint of color, so it is great for setting the entire face. It is light enough though that you could use it to set the under eye area, but I think the Translucent works even better for that. This powder is so lightweight and soft that it is almost undetectable on the skin. I might even like this powder better than my Coty Air-Spun powder just because that one is quite heavy. The NYC powder has no scent and is great if you are into baking your makeup. I have not noticed a flashback or any white cast with these powders, but just like with any translucent powder, you want to really make sure you blend it in and brush it away really really well.

Since I bought these, I have not even touched my other translucent powders or setting powders. These are beautiful powders that give the skin a flawless finish so I definitely recommend giving these a try!
