Are you known as a PPP over on Makeupalley? Don’t hang on Makeupalley and wonder what the heck I’m talking about? Over on that awesome old school site about everything beauty, “PPP” is code speak for “pale porcelain princess.” Well, I ain’t no princess, but I am pale and porcelain and finding a blotting powder at the drug store is usually nigh on impossible. I usually use MAC Blot Powder in Light, but it’s very drying and so expensive. I feel like if I drop and break that sucker, I’ve lost a major investment. Nobody should feel that way about a product meant to throw in your bag to take on the go for touch ups! Imagine my glee when I saw a blotting powder THIS LIGHT in the drug store:
This is the Translucent 100 color. There is a Porcelain shade, but it looks quite a bit darker and way more pink. If you’re a very fair shade, go for translucent! Now, a warning: Many tanned and darker skinned folks have said the translucent shade is not for everyone. I’m going to have to agree, because this powder actually has buildable coverage, so it is not completely invisible on the skin. Get the shade that looks closest to your skin tone!
Hey, look! Unlike some companies these days, Maybelline did not cheap out on a mirror and sponge! Totally practical for taking with you. THANK YOU, MAYBELLINE. Considering this product is about $6.00, I’m sold.
“Tone + texture-fitting powder for the ultimate natural fit.
