Brandefy Review

I tested the Lancome Dual Finish Powder in 420 Bisque against the Flower Beauty Light Illusion Powder in the color Tawny. I was very pleased with how both products were packaged, having a sponge and a mirror. This means both are great for the beauty on the go who may need to do a touch up during the day. The dual finish says it can be used wet which is a nice feature, however, it did not fully wow me when it was wet and applied to the face. It's a great selling point for some but not a wow factor I personally feel. I also was a little disappointed because the Lancome Powder smelled like perfume which made me concern as fragrance in face powders has often been an issue with myself and many clients I have worked with. The Flower Beauty powder did not have any smell to it which I greatly appreciated. I also would like to point out that both powders are talc-based. I actually had more skin issues with the Lancome one than I did with the Flower Beauty powder. Both powders give you anywhere from light coverage to full coverage as they are both buildable. I must say that the Flower Beauty powder had more slip on the skin than the Lancome both did apply nicely though with my paddle brush. As for the wear, they both lasted the same amount of time for me and yes I do use a primer. I used a hydrating primer called ‘Energize and Rescue’ as it's great to put under powder foundation. I was a little stressed as during a hot day I had the Lancome on and halfway through the day I turned orange and it was embarrassing helping clients and here I am ORANGE! I wore the Flower Beauty the next day and actually got compliments on it. The Flower Beauty has a perfecting/blurring feature and really did make my skin look smooth and a nicer color all day long. Both powders started out being closely comparable in shade however the Lancome oxidized a lot more. Honestly, for the price you pay for the Lancome, I expected more but was disappointed and it greatly made my Combo Skin angry. However, for only $13-$16 depending on where you get it from the Flower Beauty Powder won me over and my skin loved it more too, the big bonus was the compliments I got while I was wearing the product.
