I decided to try a loose powder over a compact powder. I hardly ever use a loose powder because it’s messy. The texture and overall result using a loose powder is very different. It clings to the skin much differently. I find it to be more patchy and uneven. Anyways, I’ve never tried Maybelline Fit Me! Loose Finishing Powder before, and there’s nothing wrong with trying something new. Let’s see what happens!

Review on Maybelline Fit Me! Loose Finishing Powder:

I’ve used this loose powder a couple of times. I didn’t enjoy it. It made my skin look dry and made my pores look larger. I have the one in Fair. The shade works on my skin, but I simply didn’t like the way it made my skin look. While making my skin look extremely dry and pores larger, it also accentuated fine lines, wrinkles, and acne. It’s a no-go. I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone. Don’t buy it.

Vegan Makeup Milani Conceal + Perfect Shine-Proof Powder

I haven’t worn makeup for the past months at all. I was thinking about getting rid of my BB Creams. They were making my skin appear more oily. Oh how I love the way BB Creams make my skin appear flawless and wonderful. But, they might’ve been contributing to my clogged pores. Every single time I remove my BB Cream, I noticed tiny bumps. I always make sure I remove my makeup thoroughly too.

I decided to test out foundation in powder form (without BB Cream). I used to wear powder foundation only. I found a makeup powder called Milani Conceal + Perfect Shine-Proof Powder. It’s vegan, cruelty-free, oil-absorbing, pore tightening, and skin mattifying. Sounds awesome! Here it is! 😊

As you can see, I was too excited to use it, haha. It came with a sponge. I haven’t used a sponge in so long. I usually use a makeup brush to apply my makeup. That’s foundation and blush on the sponge. 😜

Shade: Nude

I chose the shade Nude (light with yellow undertones). I realized that the shade was too dark on my skin when I applied it. 😢 From looking at the color in the compact, it looked like it would be a perfect match for my complexion. As for any makeup, you really need to try it on your skin to see if it matches or not. The color in the compact is certainly decieving! Besides not being a match, the quality and texture was good. I think it’s on par with more expensive brands. The powder stayed on. I used a makeup spray. I think that helped the powder stay put. This makeup powder wasn’t bad for the price ($10-$11). It didn’t irritate my skin. No new acne. I can’t believe it’s vegan!!!

You know, wearing makeup again for the first time after being free of makeup was different. I didn’t think it would make such a huge impact on me mentally. I think I prefer my face without makeup. Makeup made my face look so made up. I can go out on a limb and say fake. 😲 I used to love the way makeup made me look and feel. This time, it didn’t. I’ve been looking at my bare face day and night that I’m used to it. I will have to re-evaluate what type of makeup I want to wear and how much. I’m leaning towards the minimal side. It was fun to try new stuff out though.

Have you used Milani Conceal + Perfect Shine-Proof Powder? How was the shade? Did it work for you? Share your thoughts!

Love, Jen
