Today I’m going to be trying out the Ciate London translucent powder.
Prices and Claims:
The full-sized version retails for $26 on the Ciate London website.
The mini one retails for around $1.96 in Amazon:
It claims to prevent creasing, and you’re also supposed to be able to bake with it.
I started with my NYX Gotcha Covered concealer, I use the shade ivory, and I think it’s so good it’s such an affordable concealer. I take like the tiniest a little bit onto my fingers and apply this to my under eyes. It’s the kind that you have to squeeze out of the tube it doesn’t have a doe foot or anything. But I think that it applies nicely and easily with my finger. So once the concealer is applied, I like to set it because of that shine. Then I took my tiny little translucent powder and went to tap it into the cap.
So it does come out a pure white color. I go ahead and bake mine under eyes. And also the parts of my face where I get greasy to set my makeup.
Then I put it on my forehead, my nose, a bit on my cheeks but I avoid my chin because it’s been so dry lately.
This powder is not dusty. Thus it’s not like getting all powdery into the air, making it hard to breathe. It’s very easy to work with, and it’s mattifying to my skin. Also, it looks very smoothing on my skin; and not looking cakey at all, or gathering in any dry parts of my skin although I tapped off not that that much into this lid and ended up being enough powder to bake everywhere that I wanted to set.
So i think that you can be able to get maybe as half a dozen uses out of the mini Ciate London Powder.
IMPRESSIONS AND CONCLUSION:
After brushing it away, I noticed that my under eyes were looking very smooth. Also, where I have lines under my eyes that I tend to have lousy creasing, there’s no creasing happening at all anymore.
It doesn’t look cakey. it doesn’t look like there’s powder on my skin, it just seems like smooth skin.
And I also don’t feel like it’s left a white cast on my skin even though it’s that pure white color.
I did one last test and took a flashlight photo to make sure. And guess what? No flashback at all.
Which is great I don’t have to worry about that. So I think that this is an excellent setting powder and I’m going to continue to use it.
