Problems with dry skin and setting powder? Becca Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powder ($38) might help! Created with 50% water and glycerin this new transparent setting powder sets makeup while creating a silky smooth finish on your skin that isn’t dry and wears comfortably.
Who remembers MAC Venmous Villains Dr. Facilier Magically Cool Liquid Powder? That’s instantly what came to mind when I saw this as well as any number of Japanese and Korean cooling powders that have run through my makeup life in the last several years. Some of you will also remember when Physicians Formula launched a powder like this as well!
I’m not really sure of Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powder will be anything like that but I’d be curious to see if Becca is trying to revise the long dead trend.
If you’re never been privy to a “water” powder they are pretty cool. They start out as a powder but have a bit more creaminess to them once you apply them on your skin. They also have a pretty nifty cooling effect. As I said I’m not sure if Becca’s formula will be anything like that but it sure sounds like that’s where they are going with this. The ultra-fine texture, the water, and glycerin does seem to be where this is headed.
I’d be curious to see if I’m right!
