Becca Light Shifter Finishing Veil Setting Powder In Star Hugger 3

The Light Shifter Finishing Veil Setting Powder ($34; ulta.com) is a new finishing powder from Becca, a sheer coverage, lightweight powder with a satin, yet luminous finish. It comes in six shades, I picked up the shade Star Hugger 3, which is perfect, not ashy and matches my skin tone well this time of the year. I love how it does’t change the tone of my base makeup and just adds a nice luminous layer with a very slight blurring effect without looking too dewy. I have been skipping setting powder a lot lately, so this is something I use instead, although it has barely any coverage and is great if you have dry skin. I found that this did not emphasize my pores and there’s absolutely no visible shimmer or glitter. I used a large fluffy brush to just sweep it all over my face. Overall, if you are looking for a lightweight, natural looking finishing powder to go over your setting powder, or just over foundation or any other base, I’d recommend checking this out. There are currently 6 shades, but since it is super sheer, it is forgiving and easy to work with.

First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Niacinamide Dark Spot Serum


First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Niacinamide Dark Spot Serum Review, Photos

The Facial Radiance Niacinamide Dark Spot Serum ($42; sephora.com) is a new launch from First Aid Beauty, a lightweight Niacinamide based brightening serum that can be used all over the face or on dark spots. I prefer using this under moisturizer, all over the face. It is fast absorbing and feels lightweight yet hydrating on my skin. It leaves a satin-matte finish and does not mess with my makeup application either. I use an SPF when I use it during the day and follow it up with a moisturizer during the nighttime. I use this in rotation with other serums and use it about 3-4 times in a week. I do have to say that this has helped to even out my skintone nicely without any dryness. My skin leans extremely dry this time of the year and this has been a great addition to my skincare routine as a brightening and radiance boosting serum. Because of the non-shiny finish, I can see how this would work for most skin types. As with all or most of FAB’s skincare, this one too is fragrance-free. I absolutely love this lightweight serum and would definitely recommend it for anyone looking to even out their skin tone, add some brightness and correct dark spots, especially if you want a fragrance-free no nonsense formula for sensitive skin.

Clinique Pep-Start Daily UV Protector SPF 50

Clinique Pep-Start Daily UV Protector SPF 50 Review, Photos

Clinique’s Pep-Start Daily UV Protector SPF 50 ($23; sephora.com) has been one of my go-to sunscreens that I’ve been loving lately. Its a super lightweight, tinted physical sunscreen that I use on my face and neck. The tint blends in quite well with my medium-dark skin tone but does have a very light white cast. It is great under makeup, and leaves a bit of a dewy finish without altering the shade of my foundation or tinted moisturizers. I prefer physical sunscreens and this one is a great find for anyone with dry skin like mine, although if you have normal-oily skin or live somewhere humid, the dewyness is something to keep in mind. The packaging is really nice and while the sunscreen itself is almost like a thin lotion, it does spread easily and removes completely with a good oil based remover. Overall, a good fragrance-free option to try if you are on the lookout for a nicely formulated physical sunscreen for the face to wear by itself or under makeup.
