This week I realized I was running low on face powder. Bummer. This purchase usually sets me back $30-$40 at Sephora.
But just my luck, this week I was reading the latest edition of Real Simple Magazine and I saw a short blurb about Coty Airspun Powder on “The Guide/Beauty” page. And the best part was this huge cansiter of face powder only cost $7! Score!
So after work I hustled over to my local CVS to buy some. They have about four different tones of face powder and they all come in cute canisters with a white powder puff just under the lid.
This morning I tried it out for the first time and was pleasantly surprised. The powder was lightweight and had a classic, powdery scent. Definitely on the stronger side, but it smelled like you would expect a movie star from an old black & white film to smell like. And best part for me, hours later my face still isn’t shiny!
The quote from the magazine was right: “This finely milled setting powder, which has been making movie stars’ complexions flawless since 1935, is ‘perfect for shine-proofing the T-zone,’ says celebrity makeup artist Tina Turnbow.”
Love it, hooked for life.
