Product Review -- Beauty Bakerie Flour Setting Powder

I've mentioned before how I can have a difficult time finding a good setting powder.

My skin has gotten drier as I've gotten older, so instead of the major oil slick that it used to be back in the day, it leans more normal to dry these days -- and yet, it still can't seem to hold onto foundation all day unless I set it with something.

But most powder accentuate dryness and wind up looking cakey, which isn't cute at all.

It's kind of a catch-22.

I had a lot of hope, though, when I purchased the Flour Setting Powder from Beauty Bakerie.

That's because I'd seen a bunch of YouTube and blog reviews that were almost universally positive, so I figured it was worth a shot.

The powder is available in four shades: brown, yellow, pink, and translucent.

The brown is meant for darker skin tones, the yellow is meant to reduce redness, the pink is meant to brighten the skin, and the translucent is obviously colorless.

I thought about buying the pink, but ultimately went with the translucent because I thought it was the safest bet.

Now, it may be a superficial point, but I have to talk about the outer packaging: instead of the usual box, the Flour Setting Powder comes in an adorable little paper bag that resembles a flour bag. Obviously, that doesn't affect the powder's performance in any way, but I appreciate when brands go the extra mile with little details like that.

The powder's actual packaging is the usual tub that most loose powder comes, but it features a pretty bronze metallic lid. The tub contains approximately 21 grams.

The powder has an extremely fine texture, and when you rub it between your fingers, it has an almost creamy feel.

As a result, it doesn't have the dry look that a lot of powders can have on the skin. It does have a matte finish, but I don't find that it clings to dry patches or looks cakey.

The powder does have an almost blurring effect on the skin too, so I feel like it helps minimize the look of my pores. I also like it for setting my under eye concealer because it really helps smooth that area as well.

All in all, it's a pretty fantastic setting powder (I'm totally going to pick it up in the pink shade once of these days too).

I should probably point out that I've been using the product in the summer when my skin is more normal and less dry, so I'm not entirely sure how it will work in the colder weather when my skin gets drier.

But I definitely think it's a no-brainer for oily, combination, and normal skin.

It retails for $24 on the Beauty Bakerie website.
