Usually when I write a review of a product I like to give a definite Yes I love this or a meh it's not all that, however I'm giving this one an I'm not so sure. The product in question? Make up forever HD powder.
I know this is a must for so many make up lovers and bloggers, but I just don't think I like it. I will say for starters that I'm not a huge fan of loose powders, so that may contribute to my not so positive opinion of it.
I applied this with the same brush I use with any powder I try, the elf flat top powder brush. As soon as I dipped my brush into the product it flew everywhere, this is such a finely milled powder, it kind of reminded me of icing sugar that's the consistency it had. I stippled the powder onto my freshly applied foundation and noticed whilst applying it to my under eyes, it turned the concealer a grey colour - not a good look. It didn't effect the rest of my foundation colour as it's a translucent powder, but it definitely effected the products under my eyes.
And again, because it's so finely milled and translucent it gave no coverage which is what I like from a powder, it just finishes off the look in my opinion.
I did, however, like that it didn't make me look like a ghost as many translucent powders have in the past. After applying the HD powder I didn't really like the finish it gave me although it did matiffy my foundation a little, it didn't look as flawless as when using my SEVENTEEN miracle pressed powder. Again this could be down to the fact it was a loose and translucent powder.
The last negative point (I promise) is that I noticed that it clug to a little dry skin I had around my nose. I don't usually get any dry skin as I have oily skin, but for a few days I had a small amount of dryness around my nose and using the HD powder emphasised that.
I'm not going to say that this is a really bad product as so many people love it, but it just didn't work for me at all. I wanted to give it ago because of the hype and have to say, I was disappointed and wouldn't repurchase it. If you enjoy loose powders then I'd say give it a go, you may enjoy it more than I did. I don't Sorry Make Up Forever, you just ain't for me.
Does anyone else not love this as much as they thought they would?
