When I first walked past the Laura Geller Filter Finish Baked Radiant Setting Powder (could that name BE ANY LONGER?) at Ulta I was intrigued. I know color correcting is all the rage right now, so I thought the combination of colors was interesting, but once I swatched it, it immediately reminded me of the Hourglass Ambient lighting powders.
Once I swirled all the colors together, I don’t think there is anything “color correcting.” The packaging describes this as, “Droplets of pure pigments blur flaws, balance your skin tone and illuminate your face with a warm natural glow. Swirl it on liberally over your makeup – there’s no such thing as too much – for the perfect finish.”
Honestly, the idea of this being a setting powder is a little odd to me. I think to set your whole face with something this shimmery could be a little intense, unless you are going for a very “radiant” look. Rather than using this as a setting powder, I would prefer to use it as a soft, subtle highlight. Because my skin is so dry, and occasionally I just wanna look brighter and healthier and maybe a tad oily, I like to lightly dust this in the center of my forehead, down the center of my nose, cupids bow, and chin. Basically any place you want to add a touch of light, this powder works great.
Also, I have seen people on YouTube bake their concealer with a translucent powder, then dust it away with a brush using on of the Ambient Light powders and this would be a great option for brightening up your under eye.
So would I recommend this? It depends. If you are looking for a very subtle highlight, check this out, you might really like it. But I wouldn’t count on it balancing out your skin tone, or blurring your flaws.
