Top 4 Face Powders

Ive never done a Top 4 on my blog before, so its nice to change things around abit and do something different, plus I love seeing everyones favourite top items, As I then want to go and buy them haha. Lets see whats in my top 4..

Mac Mineralise skin finish in Medium- This powder is very popular, I've been using this since forever, and it looks like I've hardly touched it, they come in loads of different shades so you'll find one to match your skin tone. Its gives great coverage and definitely helps to get rid of my horrible shine on the face.

Mac Studio Fix Powder NC15 - This is another popular powder from Mac, I mainly use this if I want more coverage at night, its gives me such a flawless effect, I don't use this everyday, sometimes if I don't want to wear foundation ill wear this on its own with a bit of concealer to give me a natural look, it covers my spots or any redness I have.

Nars Powder in Medium 3 Barcelona - Ive wanted a Nars product since forever and I finally brought this on an app called DEPOP where everyone sells clothes and makeup, some items can be fake so you have to be careful, this lady was selling this for much less than the originally price, I'm soooo happy I brought this, the coverage is literally amazing, its much darker than my skin tone, but for nights out and when Im tanned and when I go on holiday its perfect, my face has never looked so flawless, I loved wearing this on its own when I was on holiday as you could see my true tan and wasn't covered in foundation, it did feel abit drying so I made sure I moisturised and sprayed a setting spray all over my face so my skin feels hydrated, 100% recommend this.

Bourjois Java Rice Powder - I'm not really a fan of loose powders, so I was a bit sceptical when buying this, Ive done a full review HERE if you'd like to check it out, but a quick overall, Ive been loving this for a day to day look, its not too shimmery and doesn't look cakey which a no no for powders, oh and it smells lovelyyyyy too, which it quite odd for powders. Its a messy powder so you've got to be careful when you open the lid as I experienced that and it went everywhere.

So there are my top 4 powders, All these powders seem to be lasting me forever which is a good thing, and the best thing about them all is, none of them make my skin look cakey or it looks like I've slopped aload of powder on my face lol which isn't a good look.

Let me know your favourite face powders?!
