I thought I had my setting powder game down to a fine art. If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ll know I love the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder, and I still do love it.
However, since trying the Rodial Glass Powder, I simply cannot reach for the Laura Mercier Powder anymore. And that’s not a reflection on the Laura Mercier Powder.
Rather it’s due to the fact that the Rodial Glass Powder is simply the most brilliant magical setting powder I have ever used!
I’m sure you’re wondering what all the hype is about, and truthfully, it’s very simple. The Rodial Glass Powder blurs the skin giving you a flawless finish!
You know how products say they blur the skin, but don’t quite give you that fabulous finish they promise?
Unfortunately, it happens far too often, but the amazing news is that it’s not the case here! Called the Glass Powder, that’s exactly what it gives your skin- a glass finish!
But before I talk more about how incredible this setting powder is, let’s get into the deets and see what the Glass Powder is all about and what makes it so great!
How does it work?
The powder is made from glass-microsphere innovation which scatters ambient light across the skin giving your skin a flawless photoshopped finish.
Eventhough the powder is loose, the formula is creamy making it soft and smooth to apply. It comes in 1 shade of peach undertones. While I can’t talk about dark skin shades, I can talk about pale ones!
Usually, the setting powders that have a tint don’t work well on my skin tone because they add too much color. However, this setting powder has a tint that is barely noticeable on the skin. It merely blends straight it!
The expert formula also helps get rid of unwanted shine, while at the same time giving the perfect coverage that doesn’t look heavy or dry out the skin.
Using the Rodial Glass Powder is much like using all other setting powders. The only difference is that the results are far superior!
You can use a brush to apply the powder, but, my favourite way is to apply it with the Laura Mercier puff and it works a charm. Simply dab the powder onto your skin without rubbing it in.
After applying it to the face, you get an instant flawless finish. It’s hard to decide what factor is my favourite part.
Most people look for the same few features in a setting powder. Non-drying, not cakey, good coverage and a natural finish to name a few. The Rodial Glass Powder ticks all of those boxes and that is not an exaggeration!
As I’m in my 30s, my skin has already got some dreaded signs of aging. It’s mostly that my skin is far drier than it used to be. Whereas I used to have combination skin, now it’s more on the drier side.
That means I had to change most of my skincare and makeup base products to more hydrating ones. Setting powder was the most recent change.
Until now I was using the Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder. My only issue with it was that towards the end of the day, I had some creasing under my eyes. After hearing so many amazing reviews on the Rodial Glass Powder, I had to give it a try and boy, have I been blown away by it!
I was looking for a setting powder that wouldn’t crease under the eyes, but what I got was so much more. The Rodial Glass Powder doesn’t crease under the eyes, but there’s more.
It helps my makeup to last intact all day. Before I remove my makeup in the evening, my makeup looks just as fresh as in the morning. There is no shine, no blotchiness, no creasing, just flawless natural-looking skin.
But one of my favorite parts about this setting powder is that it covers up my open pores. I was blessed with great genetics of open pores on my face.
Honestly, I really don’t like them, but eventually, you just accept what you have and move on in life! Well, you don’t have to and the Rodial Glass Powder is proof of that.
While my open pores are here to stay, the Rodial Powder minimizes and blurs them giving my skin a beautiful flawless finish that is hard not to love!
The Rodal Glass Powder has so many benefits but it does have one drawback which is its price. It’s more expensive than the average setting powder. Obviously, you have to decide if it’s worth it for you, all I can say is that for me, it’s a keeper!
