Not a chalky formula among them.
Despite their formulas often being written off as one-way tickets to chalky, dull skin, powder foundations gracing shelves nowadays are actually completely to the contrary.
In fact, their breathable, buildable nature allows them to have the opposite effect; the ideal amount of natural-looking albeit flawless coverage tailored to your complexion’s own mattifying or luminising needs, all while feeling close to weightless on the skin.
They’re hard to beat in the ease-of-application arena as well—with these clever compacts offering built-in brushes, a simple swirl or swipe is all that’s required to apply.
