China/USA: NYX, HD Finishing Powder


I give this translucent powder 3/5 thumbs up. I like it.

I bought this powder in México while traveling. You have probably seen the little Hauls I did there. I bought it at Bellisima, which is a chain of beauty shops that carries the brand, together with Milani, and other rather affordable brands. If you are after cheaper beauty brands it seems this is a good shop to go for, or the supermarket or sanborns, which carry several classical drugstore brands, like Maybelline, L’Oreal, Cover Girl, etc.

The packaging is really good, compact, and easy to use. It has no mirror, but because I do not carry this one around with me, I don’t mind that. It was on the cheaper side, but the packaging does not feel cheap at all, rather like heavier plastic, more sturdy and better quality.

The powder is good, it is a good drugstore product. It is a translucent powder, so it has no color. It looks like white powder on the packaging. You can buy it in three different shades though, but in the shop where I went, they had only this one. In very humid and warm weather I personally need to apply through out the day. Even if I do not apply full make up, I normally use concealer, blush and then powder. It is a fine powder, it looks seem-less and it gives a nice finish. I would not say HD finish, but a good seem-less finish. It does not really have a color, but I do feel that after applying it gives a slight whitish tone that if fades away, so if you have darker skin tone I would say try it out first in the shop. I would say it is a good product for a fair price. Is there better out there? Sure there is, but for the price it is a good choice.

Would I buy it again? Yes!
