It’s hard to find a good powder – striking the balance between thickness and coverage level, matteness and shimmer… then of course, you’ve got to find a color that matches your foundation. That’s why I prefer powders like this, which use multiple colors to give you a natural results. Victoria’s Secret Very Sexy Finishing Powder Duo is great: you can use the lighter color to powder your concealer in problem areas, and sweep your brush over the whole palette to give you a natural, multidimensional look over your whole face.
The packaging is cute, too – the girly pink line around and glossy black finish give it a very luxe feel. One shade has a lot of shine, giving you a free highlighter; the other is very matte which is much better for covering blemishes and the like. My only complaint is that it’s a little thin, causing me to feel like I’m covering myself in powder when I use it. But it goes on smooth for a natural finish and still makes you feel like a supermodel. The price isn’t bad for a nice powder, too.
The verdict: 8/10 – not the perfect powder, but pretty darn close, and pairs great with a bronzer!
