In The Spotlight | Bare Minerals Invisible Light

This translucent powder duo really caught my eye as I was scrolling through Look Fantastic, but I wasn't sure if I really needed ANOTHER face powder in my life. After many days of debating, I finally talked myself into it and committed to the purchase! The spotlight is shining on this little beauty today so without further ado, let's get on with the post! 

Let's just take a moment to admire the packaging because it is very nice!
It is so sleek like a lot of their products and definitely looks and feels high-end. Really loving the simple black and white design, and it is so glossy that you can actually see your own reflection. I am just a sucker for pretty packaging and at this point, it was already winning me over!

This comes with a translucent matte powder to set your foundation and mattify the skin, and a glow powder (which has a light marbling throughout) that adds a sheer luminosity to your complexion. Both powders are baked so they are silky smooth in texture, and really give you that lovely soft focus effect to your makeup. 


The glow powder (infused with rose gold pearls) looks very natural on the skin which makes it perfect for everyday makeup looks, and I have been reaching for it a tonne during the warmer months. My favourite way to apply it is with a fan brush, and I like to sweep it across the high points of my face where the sun naturally hits. One thing to keep in mind is that if you like your glow to be seen from outer space, then this is definitely not for you. 

As for the matte powder, it is unlike anything I own so I was very intrigued by it. It leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth whilst helping to blur out imperfections for a more diffused look, almost like I just applied a filter to my face. It's also an amazing powder to use for touching up throughout the day when you're getting a bit shiny, because it is so fine in texture that it instantly absorbs into the skin and never looks cakey.       

This Invisible Light Translucent Powder Duo has definitely been one of my favourite makeup purchases thus far. And when a product is as beautiful on the inside as it is on the outside, you know it's a winner!
