All the hype surround this product really confused me at first. I was wondering why everyone was obsessed with this product.
Rae Morris was one of the first makeup artists I've ever bought a book from. I'm still loyal to this day and absolutely adore her masterclasses, brushes and supporting her brand in general.
She's had extensive experience as a makeup artist and has been determined to learn more than just makeup. She embodies what I believe a true master is; learning about fundamentals and having extensive knowledge on the science of beauty and the power of makeup. I've been fortunate to meet her a couple of times and have seen this master work at her craft. Her signature look is undone, barely there, sculpted, fresh skin look.
So, when she released her new line of makeup I was equally excited and nervous to try it out. This invisible powder embodies her values on makeup for all skin colours and all genders. Her philosophy is that invisible/translucent powder should be just that, invisible. Hence the obvious translucency of this 'powder'.
This is a great product and works beautifully to wick out shine/oil from the skin without adding a heavy layer of makeup. At first, I wasn't completely mind blown by its use, it was only when I used it on set that I finally understood the hype behind it.
It didn't move any of the makeup, it mattified the skin while still keeping the skin texture and it can be used with a brush without any mess. That was the most important aspect to me. No more loose powder falling everywhere and no more white cast in photos!
It has now become a staple in my kit due to its portability and ease of use.
For an everyday consumer, this is the perfect product to keep in your handbag to slick away that 3 o'clock shine. I'd keep it with my blotting papers for sure.
For professional makeup artists, this is your holy grail. No more fear of white cast in flash, no more fear of not having the right colour for different skin tones.
I can not have about this product enough. Go into store/buy online. Have a feel in the pan then rub your fingers together. Mind blown!
Also, it will never harbour bacteria because of silicone's hydrophobic nature.
Thank you Rae!
