Haul & Swatches: Scott Barnes Loose Powder

I picked up some of the Scott Barnes loose powders from StrawberryNet for about £10 each (annoyingly enough, they were all reduced this week – D’oh!).

I picked up 3 that I thought would be useful – Translucent, 24k (a bronze) and Diamond Dust (a shimmery beige type powder).

Here is the Scott Barnes Loose Powder in translucent:

It looks a bit whitish, but once its brushed away it leaves a pretty even finish that settles in.

The 24k powder is a warm bronze – seriously golden, I imagine it might be a bit of a struggle for light skintones:

Its very pretty, reminds me of Benefit’s One Hot Minute powder.

Finally the diamond dust is a beige/shimmer powder. I guess you can use this all over but I would suggest its better as a highlighter:

This powder is probably the most versatile of the lot and is a rather lovely buy that I’d imagine would work for most skintones.

You can check them out at StrawberryNet.

    I am loving that gorgeous bronze color–how I wish I had darker skin, sometimes :) And what a pretty beige shimmer for a highlight, too!

    LOL I bought the translucent one too! When it was super cheap and I even got 22% off as a “miss you returning customer” whatever >.>

    I know I’m super late on this post, but I am now obsessed with Scott Barnes makeup and would like the 24K & DD loose powders, but they are no longer available anywhere! :-(
    Would you or anybody you know in the beauty world, be able to sell me a sample of each, even if it is at full price, I just want to have the chance to try them, especially the diamond dust!!

    BTW, I have 100% rating on ebay and a verified paypal account. You have no idea how much I would appreciate it!
    Thanks in advance for ur help either way, super awesome blog!! :-)
