happy freakin’ friday, beauties!
launching into today’s post with full gusto because that pretty product up there is rocking my world.
if there’s one thing laura geller is known for, it’s a gorgeous powder. (case in point above, but also >> here.) back in the day, i loved her blush-n-brighten baked blushes, then baked gelato illuminators launched onto the scene. they were good, but filter finish setting powder hasn’t left my side since the day it was delivered.
it arrived to me earlier in the summer and i all but sprinted to dust the stunning-in-the-compact shade from head to toe. it’s one of those products that gives instant results, fully living up to brand claims. the powder is sheer and silky and i’ve been using my favorite big fluffy brush to apply it over a finished look or to “revive” my face late in the day. it’s the perfect thing to keep stashed in my work tote for when shine rears its ugly head – one of those things that i constantly keep handy because it’s just that good. it has already saved me on several day-to-evening refreshes, pulling my faded makeup look back together and prepping me for many a networking dinner.
from a setting standpoint, i can’t say that this will “lock” your makeup into place – but it serves as a beautiful alternative to guerlain météorites for the price point. it diffuses light, adds a touch of shimmer, minimizes imperfections, brightens and gives off a youthful glow. for $32, it gives me healthy, vibrant skin super quickly and for seemingly zero effort.
what more could a girl want?
(besides all of the happy hour wine – because i am living for 5 p.m. right about now…)
