Mary Kay Translucent Loose Powder

The light's shifted. Summer may not be over - but a complexion that looked radiant under bright skies suddenly looks shiny, if we're not careful.

So this fantastic powder is brilliant for the changing season.

It may look white and chalky in the pot, but it goes onto skin completely invisibly without even a whisper of chalkiness - and it miraculously works on any skintone, from porcelain pale to dark skins.  It's so lightweight that you simply can't feel that it's there.  Whisk onto skin over liquid or cream foundation - or even a well-moisturised face, if you feel you can dare to go bare.

And where some powders can appear ageing, this features light-scattering particles, to soften the look of lines.

We think it's the perfect way to transition from bronzed goddess to velvety vamp - one of our autumn must-haves, for sure.
