I was sent an amazing PR package from Pop Beauty a few months ago consisting of their entire collection of Velvet Powder Bases. I have been using them non-stop, and am ready to give you my thoughts.
These are multi-use powders that can be worn alone as foundation, also as setting powder, and I’ve gone as far as contouring with them as well.
I love the soft, velvety texture of the powders, and how you can build the coverage up to your liking. Each shade is matte, and I feel like it blurs the look of my large pores as well as help keep my oily skin under control.
Each shade retails for $22 USD, and can be purchased from the Pop Beauty website. There are a total of 8 shades.
The shade range isn’t very large, but I feel like you can easily find one to incorporate into your makeup routine in some way.
The shades range from fair to deep, and are numbered.
- One Fair
- Two Créme
- Three Amber
- Four Au Lait
- Five Toffee
- Six Cinnamon
- Seven Mocha
- Eight Cocoa
My perfect match is “Four-Au Lait”. I tried it alone as a foundation which I liked to just even my skin tone out, but found that my dark spots from scarring showed through no matter how much I applied.
I use it now to set my foundation and absolutely love the result it gives. It instantly mattifies, and gives an airbrush look. It makes my contour look seamless too because it’s such a smooth base, the other powders just glide right on.
To bronze up my skin I enjoy the shade”Six-Cinnamon’, and I contour with shade “Seven-Mocha”.
I use a flat top brush when applying as a foundation, and a large fluffy brush to set.
Each powder is:
- Oil & Paraben Free
- Suitable for all skin types
I can’t tell you enough how much I am loving these. I highly recommend them!
Will you be trying any? Let me know in a comment.
