We’ve never experienced anything like it before
As dedicated lovers of all things beauty, it takes a lot for a brand or a product to make us raise our collective eyebrows, especially when it comes to a seemingly straightforward product like setting powder.
But BECCA’s Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powder and Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powder Golden Bronze included in the August BoxyCharm Girl Power themed box are blowing our minds. For real!
The Unbelievable Texture
Setting your makeup for the day isn’t always easy. Some powders can feel heavy or create a dry, cake-like texture, which is anything but cute, girl. Not so with this lightweight refreshing mist! Formulated with 50 percent water and glycerin, this cooling and invisible powder feels like a fresh ocean breeze against your skin as it helps you look flawless and glowing.
We’re not sure how a mattifying powder can achieve this weightless, moist texture, while also controlling excess oil, but we are simply loving it. And so are Charmers!
The Color Options
We’re all for diversity and inclusion with everything in life – and makeup is no different. With such an incredible variety of shades to choose from to suit every skin tone, it’s no surprise that more than half of Becca’s loyal customers are from racially diverse backgrounds, and an overwhelming 90 percent of those customers agree that they trust that Becca will have their shade.
It was an early goal of founder Rebecca Morrice Williams, a makeup artist from Perth, Australia, who wanted to include shades for all skin tones. Williams launched the brand in 2001, and though she departed in 2016 when Estée Lauder acquired it, her all-embracing philosophy remains the foundation of BECCA. It’s evident in the positive message on their site: “No matter your age, style, face shape, skin type or tone, BECCA empowers you to find your best light, glow your own way – and make each day better than the last.”
Don’t know which color is right for you? It’s easy. If you have light to medium skin, just lightly smooth the Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powder over your face with a brush, just as you would any loose powder. Medium to dark skin tones should opt for the Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powder in Golden Bronze.
The Fantastic Coverage
Flaws and shine are history with these ultra-fine, light-reflecting powders that blur imperfections and fine lines. When you have that not-so-fresh feeling come afternoon, just reapply the loose powder with a brush as needed to keep makeup looking refreshed all day long.
Here’s an insider tip: Don’t be afraid of wearing that backless dress or off-the-shoulder shirt when you have this powder in your arsenal. One quick swoop with a brush over those exposed areas, and your skin will seem flawless. Go on, look red carpet ready, even if you’re just headed out for margaritas with the squad!
