My skin has been horribly dry and crusty for a while (switching skincare around – again) so I have been scouring the forums, looking for the must have powder. I have found that Armani’s Micro Fil Powder has had consistently good reviews so I bought it for around £28 (I think it was, I remember thinking – how much!?).
Here it is:
On the counter I only saw three shades, 0, 1 and 2 so I got 2. However on the leaflet inside it says it comes in 5 shades…possible an overseas issue there.
Read on for more info!So it comes in a simple froster case and a sponge applicator. The powder feels super fine and really really does disappear beautifully on the skin. I have lots of other loose powders (why, impulsive nature, WHY!?!) that I have bought and not finished. My three other favourites include:
1. La Mer Translucent (but a bit glittery)
2. NARS (very finely milled but colour is a bit off for me, a bit chalky- I have Eden)
3. Illamasqua (nice texture but can look a bit caked on)
I also have lots of mineral powder foundations but I find these a little heavy to set a full face of foundation.
The texture is BEAUTIFUL! So finely milled, so soft. It blends away to NOTHING but softly finished make up. Its just stunning.
A possible issue is the shimmeryness of the powder. In the jar, it appears very glittery – you can see the shiny particles in it which I am guessing are light reflective. Once this is blended away I really really did not find my face shimmery or horrible AT ALL.
However, if you are 100% against any shimmer in your face powder, then this may not be for you. This worked really well on my extreme combo skin which has oily patches but also very dry areas.
02 is supposed to be warm, its actually quite light and cool toned::
Doesn’t matter as it disappears and does not leave me with a cakey face either way.
I don’t declare HG very easily but I think Armani’s loose powder may be my HG. There are so many great loose and pressed powders on the market at the moment that you may be able to find an alternative. For me, this powder is extremely fine milled, is extremely effective. I *heart* it mucho.
