|NYC New York Color Smooth Skin Pressed Powder|
I always use both loose and pressed powder to set my foundation for more extended wear. However, I have never tried any from NYC New York Color and was wondering how their Smooth Skin Pressed Powder would perform. I was sent two compacts to review with the #701 Translucent and the #702A Naturally Beige.
What was interesting about this powder was how it seemed to diffuse a look of light to my skin while it nicely smoothed out and covered my complexion. The #701 Translucent did not add color to alter my foundation, but did have a pale whitish cast to it.
The #702A Naturally Beige was sheer enough to use over my foundation and gave me a bit more natural color than the #701 Translucent. This shade was a better choice for my light skin. Nonetheless, both of those compacts gave my dry skin a pretty satin finish while keeping my makeup intact.
This powder comes with a sponge applicator. This is handy for your handbag for touch ups. But for when you want to get the most out of this product, you should try using a big, fluffy powder, which will distribute more of that powder over your finished makeup. This substitution will keep your complexion fresher longer when using a pressed powder over a loose powder.
If you haven't tried NYC New York Color Smooth Skin Pressed Powder, you can't go wrong. It's inexpensive and does the job with a bit extra by the way it can cast light on your skin.
