This highlighting powder is well worth the price. I love the baked consistency- much less messy than the loose shimmer/highlight powders. ...I have tried a bunch of radiance powders and this once beat them all. It adds a nice radiant shine over my bare minerals foundation powder that is just perfect, highly recommended and worth the price!

What it is:
An ultrasmooth baked face powder that provides natural color with soft matte radiance.

What it does:
Wake up the skin, and provide natural color with a radiant, healthy glow for a flawless, no-makeup look. Sheer, buildable coverage lets you customize your glow, while the modern, multidimensional matte finish imparts a hint of soft luminosity. The bronze shades provide a neutral warmth in varying intensities. The ultralightweight formula feels weightless on skin and applies smoothly and blends effortlessly. The smooth, silky, velvety texture feels comfortable, while the long-wearing formula lasts up to eight hours and stays color-true without oxidizing for an even wear. Each tile is hand-mixed with a unique design.

Living for the fact that when used as baking my under eyes are not left ashy or crepe - I’m in my 30s so this effect is so desired!!

The compact is nice, I like the weight and even though the pan is small, it’s deep so it has the same amount of product that the Charlotte Tilbury powder has (which is a huge pan size). ...Not a huge fan bc I don’t think it did anything different from what my other cheaper powders do. I just don’t think it’s worth the price tag, even if it is clean beauty.

3.5g size pressed powder is on the small side...no, but it didnt accentuate them either like some powders do...overall i am happy with this powder...it was initially a bit of a surprise at the small size..it looks like a mini size to me so i took a star of for the price and the size....I have very dry under eyes that are a constant battle and very picky with powders in general.

$205.00

Finishing powder is 5/5...The component is so flimsy that the powder flew out of the compact. I knew it was not going to be luxe, but it’s actually flimsy. ...love the color and the scent of the powder. It goes on light and sheer. I also purchased the mini lipstick because I liked the idea of the mini lipstick fitting into the go clutch, but it is not secure.

dusting powders
“I also like packing this on under my eyes with my fingertip when I'm prone to allergies and get watery eyes, it helps keep my tears from blotching off my foundation around my eyes, and once I'm back inside and my eyes have calmed down, I can just dust or wipe away any excess powder and look fine. ”
styling powders
“I expected a lot more glam and respect (for the product) from GUCCI (who knows a thing or two about packaging and style), especially with this price tag.”
