I normally would not dedicate a separate post to a finishing powder. But this one (for some reason) escaped my radar and I’m so sorry that I’m just discovering it.
A little history:
Most finishing powders come in what companies insist is translucent (white)… or some tinted version in an attempt to suit darker skin tones. I can count on one hand the companies that specifically cater to undertones for any given skin type (Bobbi Brown tops the list), and don’t pretend that a finely milled white powder will somehow work for every skin type. ‘Translucent’ is what is invisible on YOU. There’s no such thing as a universally translucent powder. Show me one of those, and I’ll show you a person who can’t wear it.
By Terry Poudre Eclat is a ‘correcting’ powder, so it comes in more shades than just light, medium and dark. Because of my yellow undertones, and because I’m always looking to encourage a ‘glow’ from my skin, I chose the powder in Apricot Sable.
See how warm the powder color is? This is a lovely alternative to Laura Mercier’s Secret Glow Powder (which is more yellow). It’s extremely finely milled and absolutely disappears into my skin. Love that. This is translucent for ME.
