Kat Von D Lock-It Brightening Powder is currently gearing up to potentially take the place my beloved Ben Nye Banana Powder! The question here is, will it be a good replacement? Kat Von D Lock-It Brightening Powder is a new Spring 2017 created exclusively for use under eyes. This weightless, tinted loose powder is available in three shades (Yup, there’s a banana yellow shade called Golden).
I’ve actually never been a strong supporter of setting my concealer with powder because I have drier eyes. One day, I tried it though and buffed it gently under my eyes after concealer application using a soft, bushy blending brush. Every since that day I was hooked. It really does set concealer for all day wear plus it brightens up the entire area. There’s been some fails here though like Laura Mercier’s Secret Brightening Powder that never quite worked for me, nor Sephora’s Bright Set Loose Finishing Powder. I do love Besame’s Brightening Powders to do this job but I must admit since my beloved Skin Food Salmon Dark Circle Powder got discontinued I mostly use Ben Nye’s Banana Powder for this job! The yellow powder works well to set my concealer and brightens up my entire eye area.
Now, let’s see how the Kat Von D Lock-It Brightening Powder stands up!
Kat Von D Lock-It Brightening Powder was created exclusively for under eyes and promises to give you a younger, more awake appearance. It was also designed to be paired up with the new Kate Von D Lock-It Concealer Creme to give an extra brightening boost. I immediately ordered two pots of this when it launched yesterday as I have a feeling it’s going to be great!
- Petal (powder pink brightens light skin tones)
- Peach (powder pink brightens light skin tones)
- Golden (banana yellow universal & brightens deep skin tones)
Anyone order these? I can’t wait to try them!
