Today I’m here to talk about a translucent powder that I found at Walmart by NYC (New York Color):
NYC Smooth Skin Pressed Face Powder, Translucent
I bought it for US$3,00 and there are different shades, but I got the Translucent because I need to remove the shine from my face sometimes during the day, especially in hot hot days here in Brazil! Nobody wants a shiny face that you can even squeeze the oil out and sell it to fry an egg, right? I know, I am weird.. Anyways, this powder comes with a lame little sponge that is actually handy when you are in a hurry and just throw the powder in your purse or makeup bag. I usually apply with the sponge just because I am lazy and I forget to get the brush, but I would recommend a brush to apply it hahaha! This powder is pressed, so it’s not so messy!
This NYC powder comes in a weak package, but good enough to handle my strong hands ahaha! Not only that, is comes with a mirror inside, and it’s good because usually this type of powder is made to quickly apply on the face. So the mirror and sponge have this purpose. Ah, modern world where time is money! We are always in a hurry. It reminds me of a song by Jason Mraz that I love called Clockwatching! You should listen to this song, amazing! Anyways… Back to the powder, is has a white-ish color, so be careful to not over-apply it and become a ghost cosplay!
When I am at home I apply it with a brush, but when I’m out I usually just se the sponge and that’s it! I like the way it makes my face matte and blocks the shine on my skin. I know sometimes that flat face is weird, but I make sure to contour my face to have some depth!
Have no idea why I only have this weird photo (I look like a no life robot human being weirdo) but as you can see on my forehead, it has no shine but it’s not totally matte. I have combination skin, and I felt that it gives the skin a different texture, and I would purchase this again, for sure. Come on.. 3 dollars, guys. Please.. 🙂
I’ll try to schedule some posts this weekend. I am sorry I am gone, but I’ve been busy lately with work. I didn’t even do my nails!!!! Say What! I do them at least 2 or 3 times a week and I have the same nail color since last saturday (March 22nd)! So, I’ll talk to you guys soon, bye!
