Now, let's get into the review...
Upon first receiving the email from Influenster I was super excited! I had been wanting to try out this super cool (pun intended) product!
When the product arrived I was in awe of the beautiful packaging. I received both the Hydra-Mist Powder and the Kabuki brush that goes with it. The only complaint that I have with the packaging is that you can see a pretty big space between the powder and the lid. It truly shows how little product (0.35oz) you're getting for the price ($38 USD). The Kabuki brush I have no complaints with. It applies the product beautifully! It's SUPER soft and is made very well! However, it does retail for $30 USD.
In terms of the actual product itself, it works wonderfully at blurring lines and making your makeup look super smooth. The sensation you get when putting this powder on is so satisfying! It truly feels like your using a mist (hence the name "Hydra-Mist"). I noticed when using this powder my makeup lasted literally ALL DAY. I never even touched up!
Now, what I don't love about this product is that it is not completely translucent. It has a very slight salmon color to it. I do not recommend using it to set the under eyes, for it does seem to make your skin SLIGHTLY darker. When testing this product, I decided to do a flash test and I did find that I got some flashback... SO, I would not recommend wearing this for a photo shoot. Also, the price is a bit high.
My Final Thoughts?
Ultimately, I really like this product. I think it sets makeup beautifully and gives a very flawless-looking finish. It lives up to its name when it says it's a "Set & Refresh Powder." Using this to refresh makeup on those hot summer days is going to be so satisfying! Overall, I do recommend this product. You can shop BECCA and sign up for Influenster by clicking the links below!
