Since I had been meaning to test out the BareMinerals Invisible Light Translucent Powder Duo, I was ecstatic when I received it in my July Boxycharm.

About the product:

— Retails for $32 and can be purchased anywhere BareMinerals is sold

— Comes with 2 baked powders (matte and glowy)

— The matte is meant to be used as a setting powder that blurs out pores and absorbs


— The glow powder is infused with rose gold pearls that is meant to add a sheer

luminosity for highlighting and strobing

I will admit that when I first saw the powders, I was nervous because it was so white. A lot of white “translucent” powders that I have used in the past have, in fact, not been “translucent” or black girl friendly, let’s be honest. They made me look ashy, clung on to my skin, and had crazy flash back with flash photography. For those reasons, I stopped using white translucent powders, because as a dark skin woman, ain’t nobody got time for crazy, ashy looking under eyes.

My Experience:

I started out by applying the matte powder with a brush to set my concealer, then I used to same brush to apply the glow powder over the matte powder.

The matte powder instantly mattified and blurred my skin. It didn’t leave a white cast on my skin and didn’t look ashy at all. In fact, I was so impressed with the way my under eyes looked that I basically applied it all over my face.

The glow powder gave my skin a beautiful natural lit-from-within-healthy-skin finish. It honestly transformed my skin. I was shocked! And best of all, there was absolutely NO FLASH BACK!!!

This product has quickly become my favorite setting powder, not just for under eyes, but anywhere you want to mattify and smooth out. I would 100% recommend this product to anyone with combination/oily skin who loves looking flawless!
