Loose powders and I don’t usually get on. I find it too messy and I hate having it puff up in my face whenever I try to use it. I'm a pressed powder girl all the way with my favourite being the Laura Mercier Mineral Pressed Powders. But recently I’ve been giving a few loose powders a whirl and I thought I’d show you some of my current powder related thoughts.

Cargo HD Translucent Powder is probably my top pick at the moment It diffuses the light for a soft blurred effect so all my lines pores and imperfections. The powder itself is ultra fine and leaves a soft matte finish. The best thing about this is definitely the packaging. It has a unique lid which means that the powder is sealed in when you open it it doesn’t puff up everywhere and get over all my things.

The Bourjois Java Rice Powder is based off the original cult Bourjois Java Rice powder that was formulated over 150 years ago. It’s been updated for the 21st century market and is now illuminating powder. It feels absolutely weightless on the face This is a great radiance boosting powder and gives the face a soft glow. It sets makeup nicely while giving a lovely glow from within type look.

Then finally we have The By Terry Hyaluronic Hydra Powder. Now after weeks of searching for this (I literally used to go into Space NK every week trying to get my paws on it) I wasn’t as pleased with this powder as I thought I was going to be. It came very highly recommended to me,  by peoples who's opinions I trust. I just found it wasn’t as good as I expected. While the smoothing and blurring properties are all there, I’ve used much nicer powders. It gives a flawless long lasting finish but I felt it looked a little ashy on my skin. It's probably good powder for drier skin as its packed with hylrauonic particles which will help moisture on the skin. The price... oh the price. £41 for a powder is something I'm definitely not considering again in a hurry. In my opinion, good but not worth it!

What's you favourite loose powder?
