Daniella Bronowski says:

I am so grateful for your in depth look at face powders and amazingly you mentioned a lot of the one’s I’ve been researching and now I think I have quite a few options to look at. Thank you Nathalie.

asiian. shiit says:

are all these powders good for dry skin?

LadysMaid says:

Love the essence pressed powder! a small hint if you purchase this: i always tape the little hinge in the back with some washi tape because the plastic is sooo brittle!

Angela T says:

Such a well done video!  You have a very soothing voice that is so pleasant to listen to. Thank you for listing all of the products.  I know it takes time and I appreciate it.  <3

Pamela Cossey says:

Priyanka Singh says:

Jennifer Marie says:

What r ur thoughts on the Coty air spun loose powder??

Veronique says:

Thanks for all the great recommendations! What is best is that they are drugstore!

cassilda cardona says:

Haven’t seen anything new in a while, are you still making videos?

Cee Bee says:

I’ve been using NYC’s Smooth Skin powder in translucent foreeeeever. So inexpensive, so nice on the skin, comes with a mirror, can use it over any and everything, doesn’t cake up… just a great powder. But I’m branching out so I’ve decided to try the Rimmel one. They need to put that damn thing in a compact.

A'Miracle Gray says:

Thank you for including medium to tan skin tones

Mi'el Blanquea Esquivo says:

I think I’ve said this verbatim before, but these are the most helpful reviews I’ve ever found. Would you consider a ‘compacts’ eg. cream foundations for review? I noticed you have Revlon’s Colorstay, True Match is surprisingly good – haven’t tried Neutrogena’s, ELF’s, Iman’s, Covergirl’s Smoothers…

I’m rambling – just make more videos please!

AmazonJess says:

Sahar Varona says:

hey! what do you recommend for setting makeup? can i use mineral powders or will i get cakey? im super oily. even the rimmel stay matte doesnt keep me matte all day 🙁

Rebecca White says:

Hi Nathalie!  I’ve been thinking about the fact I haven’t seen a video from you in a long time, so I wanted to send you a message telling you I’m thinking about you and I hope you’re okay!

Laura Torres says:

Does the NYC powder work for oily skin?

Mommy Is A Chef says:

holly shepperson says:

Raoua Bensalem says:

Yari desantos says:

Thank you for this video!!! Life saver

Sweet Serenity says:

Where are the videos???
If you’re no longer filming-
Why??? keep channel up???

jcjccmz says:

Hi Nathalie, any chance of updating this video? There are some new powders out and I’d love to hear your thoughts. I also wouldn’t mind if you compared some of these to your favorite high end powders. FYI, I went to buy the Sonia Kashuk loose powder at Target yesterday and was taken aback by how little product you get. I think it might he less than .2 oz (actually .17 oz if I remember correctly) for $10. At that price, I think it’s more expensive than Laura Mercier loose setting powder which is $38 for 1 oz. It might be even more expensive than Estee Lauder’s Re-Nutriv loose powder which is $55 for 1 oz. Just something to consider…

Michele Mcmasters says:

Come back!!! You are missed very much!!

Atika Yamin says:

which is the best one
because i have a horrible oily skin
so i need the most mattifying powder

sadianadeem1 says:

S S says:

gabriela mihova says:

I used the essense transparent powder but I don’t really like it. It made my makeup patchy, looking disgusting. Maybe it’s just me.

Joseph Valenti says:

Destiny Godley who is a dark skinned makeup artists uses NYC translucent pressed!

Victoria Victoria says:

Which ones have absolutely no flashback?

Julia Mikhail says:

elf’s loose powder is fantastic. It kept my makeup perfect throughout my verrrry hot, sweaty 3.5 hour graduation ceremony. I’m sad you didn’t show it!

Emmkah Peh says:

Awesome video!! So thorough and informative. :o) And the links you provided helped heaps, thanks! Like other people below I would also enjoy an update to this video some time. But even more I would love a video about powder foundatios!

Thanks for working so hard to help us spend our money wisely! ^__^.oO(<3)
