Illuminating powders

Hello, beauties!

I almost always use some illuminating powder to set my make-up and add some radiance.
So here are an old favourite and a new friend

The one on the left is my favourite Soft and Gentle Mineralize Skinfinish by M.A.C that I got a long while ago and have been in love with it ever since . It gives a very subtle hardly noticeable bronze tint, it leaves skin amazingly radiant and looking absolutely flawless. Thanks to the microscopic shimmer it evens out the skin tone and hides all the imperfections. Love love love this product and just can't get enough of it!

The multicoloured newcomer is Bobbi Brown Brightening Finishing Powder in Porcelain Pearl. To be completely honest at first I didn't like it at all, but after using it a few times, I am actually growing  to love it. It's less obvious then the one by M.A.C and much lighter as well, but if you are looking for something slightly darker Bobbi Brown also makes it in Brightening Nudes , check it out here.
So, back to the Porcelain Pearl, when all the pastels mix when you brush them on, they instantly lift and freshen up your face; the skin just has this inner glow that is very attractive.

Have you tried Bobbi Brown Brightening Powder yet? 
Or maybe you tried the one by MAC or other brand? What are your thoughts?


  1. I am so intrigued by the Bobbi Brown powder! I love products like that! I've been using the Laura Mercier Secret Brightening powder for a bit of illuminating but I'm still on the fence about it! xx
