Weightess Powders - My Latest Crush

I have been using these two powder from Flawless You Forever since a while and am totally hooked. I don't like the feel of powder at all! If I could I would rather just completely skip it. 

But I have long days at university and although I have normal skin, I tend to get slightly shiny in the t-zone at mid day hence the need to power remains. I am always on the look for powders that meet my criteria and till now it was only Rimmel Stay Matte that did the trick for me. 

However Stay Matte can sometimes make me too matte which I do not always like. A bit of that healthy shine showing through is nice! Hence I like these two for that purpose. 

These are brilliant to set something like a full coverage foundation or a matte foundation for which you don't want to add more matte-ness but merely want to set it for it to stay longer or to prevent it from transferring easily. 

I have tried two from the range that I love, FYF Weightless Powder Compact in Cashmere ($20) and FYF Impecable Mineral Loose Powder ($28)

With the Weightless Powder Compact, I find it quite similar in texture to MAC's Studio Fix Powder. It has great pigmentation just like it. What is lovely is that it does not feel heavy like the Studio Fix Powder at all! It is absolutely invisible in texture when it goes on, still managing to even my skin out and providing medium coverage

So am I trying to say that no one would be able to trace powder on your skin even if they look very close?  Yup - you heard read me right!

I have the shade Cashmere and it works just fine for my NC30 skin tone. It comes with a mirror and is quite convenient to carry around. Plus its fragrance free and oil free and packed with anti oxidants

That's just one swipe!

The Impeccable Mineral Loose Powder is something that works pretty much like a HD powder. I have the shade Nude and although it is quite light than my skin tone on swatching, once blended it completely disappears.

This is for those of you who want a light natural coverage. Would be suitable for days when you don't feel like wearing make-up at all but still want to make your complexion look alive. Again, feels weightless on application and lets my skin breath unlike other gimmicky mineral powders in the market.

Other benefits:

- Protect your skin from the sun
- Suitable for sensitive skin
- Suitable for oily skin types/prone to breakouts

From the two, I prefer the compact version as it offers more coverage. Try the loose powder if you have oilier skin perhaps as it is very light and gentle on the skin. 

They offer Free Shipping Worldwide!

I'm always looking for a great powder and these look awesome! Thanks for the great review! I've actually never tried FYF and have just started hearing about it! I'm going to have to do some investigating! :)

I am so many issues finding a good powder that gives good coverage but doesn't look too chalky. The first one you talked about sounds really good. Will definitely have to check it out.
