NYX HD Finishing Powder Review & Swatches

NYX HD Finishing Powder

NYX HD Finishing Powder ($10) is a new translucent finishing powder available in three different shades with a matte finish that launched permanently for Spring 2015. I know, you’re probably thinking, “well there’s plenty of finishing powders on the market already, what sets this one apart?”

It’s actually available in the regular transparent white version AS WELL as a green shade to diffuse redness and a banana one that will lighten up duller complexion! Or in my case, I purchased the banana because I thought it would be great to set my concealer!
