In today’s video we are testing out an affordable drugstore powder that claims to give you perfect matte and flawless skin! Watch to see if it keeps me matte after 12 hours wear and hides my enlarged pores! I test it over 2 days for 12 hours each day and also battle it against my current holy grail setting powder!

Hi Nikkia! Holy Shine Busting, Batman! Bought the face powder after watching your review. I am in LOVE! I am using the powder with the mousse foundation from La Roche Posay. Set my make up early in the morning and by the time I get home, my make up looks like it did in the morning. Absolutely NO SHINE! This is my new HG. Thanks for the recommendation!

Bridgette Lopez says:

Your skin looked sooo much better with the double wear! It’s the only foundation I’ve ever used and I get so many compliments on my skin so yes double wear is holy grail!!

Christopher Morley says:

1) You’re a gorgeous girl. 2) Us Americans luv those Aussie accents and I’m no exception. 3) Luv how excited u get over a really good product. You look like the kind of girl who wouldn’t get excited about anything (u have that ‘cool’ factor.) 4) U have the most beautiful blue eyes. I’ve been trying to find a pair of colored contacts that r your eye color but to no avail.

Mike Sylvester says:
