I have been seeing this Yardley Absolute Translucent Loose Powder on a number of South African beauty blogs especially those run by black women and on Instagram. It received mostly good reviews when being used to as an under-eye, forehead, chin and bridge of nose highlighter; so obviously I had to check it out for myself and see what the fuss what about.
I have been using this powder for a month now – let’s say maybe 3 times a week (I don’t wear makeup everyday). I use it along with the LA Girl Concealer in Toffee.

What I liked about it is that it is not stark white; so it blends better with my skin and it also gives control of how ‘popping’ you want the highlight to be. I have translucent powders in my makeup stash which I bought a while ago for the purposes of highlighting which where just too white for my brown skin.
The one issue I have with these types of powders is that they are not travel friendly; unless you pack cotton pads in it to prevent the powder from getting all over the place. I would definitely buy a compact version of this powder if it were available.
I love using this powder, it is worth the hype and the price aint too shabby either. I can foresee it lasting me for years and years!
