Too Faced Peach Blur Translucent Smoothing Finishing Powder ($30) is a new translucent powder that soft peach in color which contains optical correcting spheres that act smooth lines, pores, and uneven skin texture to create the illusion of a smooth, soften complexion.
I think this is a little bit of a confusing product and people are left questioning the peach shade. How can it be translucent if it is peach? Will it give me a peachy glow? Is it a highlighter or is it simply a setting powder?
Let’s find out!
Ok, I should get it out there right away and say I love this. Jerrod kept promoting this on his Instagram and raving about how much he adored and how it was his favorite product from the Peaches & Cream Collection. But I wasn’t buy any of that. Too Faced is legendary for hyping up their latest collections and giving us all a bad case of makeup FOMO if we don’t get our hands on something as soon as it releases.
Needless to say all his marketing ravings worked because I purchased it as soon as it popped up on Sephora during the early release this week. I didn’t expect much from it and when I got it I thought, “WOW! Adorable!” but also, “Hmmm looks very dense!” We’ll discuss all that in a second but let’s chat packaging first.
This comes in a pretty square compact with a very generously sized mirror inside and a peach face plate. It’s not overly cutesy nor cheap looking. I think they did a great job packaging this collection. The powder itself as a cute raised peach embossment as well which doesn’t disappear once you use the product (although the words printed within the peach design do). They have this priced at $30 for 0.28 oz of product.
The entire Peaches & Cream Collection is promoted as being a comfortable matte finish but thus far all the powder products have an over spray. This powder is no different. It has an interesting over spray that gives it sheen finish. It looks like a smooth layer of ice. Once you dust that initial layer off the powder beneath is soft, silky and satiny matte in finish. You do have to use a fairly dense brush to pick up the powder because although silky it still has a very dense formula. I used my Bobbi Brown Blush Brush which has a smaller dome shape which picked up color easily enough.
The shade is a soft peach and it swatches as such but this applies completely sheer and transparent. As you know I have drier skin and I don’t use setting powder as it accentuates dryness. I had no problem with this. It didn’t adhere to my drier areas and had a soft, smooth, even appearance. I applied my foundation, concealer, and eye makeup this morning and prior to applying my blush I dusted this across my face. I have a little bit of a combo skin type going on at the moment where my forehead and chin is a little oily and my cheeks drier. It completely eliminated the shine I was experiencing and it smoothed and softened my entire complexion. I don’t consider myself as having a rough or uneven skin texture but it’s very visible how this perfects your complexion. It gives your skin a softer look. If you have larger pores or finer lines it should blur and soften their appearance.
If you’re a blogger or you take selfies or photos you’ll love how this makes your skin look. It just makes your skin look beautifully smooth and soft.
I WISH it was a little more powdery as it is a pain to pick it up. I have to swipe my brush across it pretty hard a few times to pick the powder up. However, there’s part of me that thinks maybe the fact it isn’t powder is why it works so well for me and doesn’t adhere to dryness.
It does have a soft peachy scent and you do get a little sniff of it as you apply but it disappears and doesn’t linger. You have to put your nose fairly close to the powder to even smell it so the scent is very subtle. I liked the scent a lot more than the one from the Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Palette. It’s a lot sweeter and smells like Sanrio Peach Gum.
All in all, Too Faced Peach Blur Translucent Smoothing Finishing Powder was a pleasant surprise. I love what this does for my complexion! I would definitely recommend this one for a purchase.
