I am getting acquainted with Benefit again, and picked up this cute little pot of loose powder, named One Hot Minute Face Powder £23.50.
It is, as expected, super cute, and will apparently make you sexy in seconds.
They say: Look sexy in seconds! For a gorgeous “gaze at me glow” sweep this loose rose-gold finishing powder over your complexion & décolleté. All it takes is…one hot minute!
One minute? Darling, I can do it in 30 seconds….
The tin is cute, it looks like the front of a watch. It comes with a weird fan brush in the lid:
The bus has actually been created to apply just the right amount of powder (ie. not a lot). Its an ok brush, unusual to say the least.
Here is the powder. I have no problems with it texture wise, its smooth and very glowy:
Its funny – I expected to this to be quite a hot rose-gold-bronze buts its really subtle (on my NC35 medium olive skin tone anyway). As you can see here, its just a subtle warm highlight – not really buildable I think:
How to use it:
I have applied it here around the temple and cheek. I applied more so that it would show up on the photo but it is still quite subtle. In reality – this is a good thing. I apple make up in the semi dark so at least this way I won’t have bronzer overload:
The overall effect is quite flattering and subtle – it adds a bit of colour and shape to the face although I don’t think the powder is a substitute for a bronzer or a blush or a contour. Its somewhere between all of these products.
Did it make me hot in one minute?
Dah-ling. It made me hotter!*
You can buy it here (in the UK) or from Boots stores.
P.S. Seriously though – its a nice product and one thats quite difficult to overload on. Its a nice finish, its pretty rather than HOT. And that is probably for the best unless you are Megan Fox.
