Let's get in to the review!




Honest Beauty claims:


A translucent loose powder that blends invisibly into all skin tones. Specially formulated to pair with our foundations or tinted moisturizers, this talc-free powder evens complexion, blurs imperfections and softens the appearance of fine lines and pores. Also fabulous for mid-day touch-ups to mattify skin, absorb surface oils and minimize unwanted shine. All you’re left with is a silky, picture-perfect finish to help makeup stay put. 



Packaging


The Blurring Powder comes packaged in a tub with a twist off lid. The powder dispenses through several small holes in the top. Not the most ideal for travel---a twist mechanism to block the holes would be preferred. 


There have been no flaws or defaults in the packaging that have interfered with the performance of the product. 



Product


The Invisible Blurring Powder is a loose mineral powder that has a visible yellow tint, but when applied to the skin is completely transparent.


It has no obvious scent or smell, nor did it irritate my skin.


The powder itself feels finely milled so it is perfect for setting other products into place. It does not leave the face looking completely matte or dehydrated, making it ideal for all skin types.


I did not experience any obvious white cast when worn under flash photography.



Performance


When applied with a fluffy brush, the Invisible Blurring Powder gives the skin an airbrushed appearance---blurring the look of pores and uneven texture.


I found that this powder did not cling to dry patches or dry out my skin but it did help control oil for up to 6 hours.


However, I did not find that this powder kept my makeup from separating or breaking down throughout the day. It also did not prevent my foundation and concealer from creasing and settling into fine lines and wrinkles.



Ingredients:

Zea Mays (Corn) Starch, Silica, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Starch, Zinc Stearate, Magnesium Stearate, Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499)



Overall


This loose powder does an excellent job of blurring fine lines, wrinkles and pores. However, it does not help extend the wear of my makeup or prevent creasing. I do love this powder for no makeup days when I need to reduce excess shine and give my face an airbrushed finish. While it is not my favorite loose powder, it is still an excellent option if you have normal to dry skin without major fine lines or wrinkles to worry about.
