Audrey Hepburn indeed knew the secret to immortal beauty: Happiness, love, kindness, strength, wisdom, and inner peace-these qualities are what made her one of the most gracious women the world has ever seen and this, without a doubt, is the reason why she remains as an icon for all women of all ages.
I, too, agree with Ms. Hepburn, but to make it a little more personal, I'd add that an oil- free, smooth face and a powder that blends seamlessly with my skin tone make me whole (haha!) as well. Lately, I'm loving Absynthe Bath and Beauty's Happy Girls Are The Prettiest Talc- Free Face Powder because it brilliantly comes in the shade of Yellow, imparts a nice, cooling sensation, and a soft finish.
ABSYNTHE BATH AND BEAUTY HAPPY GIRLS ARE THE PRETTIEST TALC- FREE FACE POWDER IN DETAIL
Absynthe said that this lightweight powder controls shine and softens skin and the appearance of imperfections. It comes in one shade only, Yellow.
This powder is proudly Talc- Free so if you're afraid of Talc, this will be good for you. Also, there are very nice ingredients in the list namely Nylon 12, Zinc Oxide, and Silica. If you noticed, Titanium Dioxide content is pretty high (because it is at the topmost part of the ingredients list), but product did not say that it has SPF so it's best to wear one underneath prior to makeup application.
More about this affordable, smoothing, cooling powder after the cut!
Product is very travel- friendly at 10g, but you can lift the sifter cover in case you want to transfer it to an even smaller pot. I use a powder brush instead of that puff for a softer and more natural- looking coverage, and to also minimize the white cast (due to Titanium Dioxide).
I was told that this powder's shade was inspired by Ben Nye Banana Powder. Haven't tried that yet so I can't make a comparison, but if you're a user of Ben Nye's famed powder, you might consider trying this out.
The first time I saw the shade, I thought that I'd literally look like a Banana because it seemed too yellow, but when I swatched it, it turned out to be a very pale yellow shade. When I blended it, it disappeared into a translucent finish. Texture is super soft and smooth, and consistency is a tad bit creamy so I believe this will be good for those with dry skin. It has no scent and it yields a cooling sensation upon skin contact that lasts for a couple of minutes, but I don't use this to set the makeup on my orbital eye because it makes me tear up!

One layer of the powder
It sets and goes well with any liquid base, and look how it smoothed out my skin's texture (thank you, Nylon 12). Regarding the white cast, it doesn't look too off nor does it appear too obvious in photos because the yellow tone of adjusts the powder very well onto any skin tone--it also feels pretty lightweight despite the semi- creamy coverage.
Oil control is pretty good at 4.5 hours and it doesn't cake too. However, I do not know how long (and effectively) it can control sebum on severely oily skin types.
Nylon 12, again, is a smoothing agent so if your problem is your skin's gritty texture, go for a face powder that has this as an ingredient. This powder's finish is very comparable to Benefit's The Porefessional Agent Zero Shine loose powder because both products contain Nylon 12-the only stark difference between the two is the color: Benefit's powder is peach- toned, which is good for minimizing the appearance of marks while Absynthe's powder is yellow- toned, which helps brighten the skin and adapts very well to Filipina and Oriental skin tones. I'm happy with this powder because it comes in a versatile, morena skin tone- friendly shade and the cooling sensation it gives lets me refresh my skin anytime! I shall buy it again!
