Estee Lauder Aeromatte Ultralucent Pressed Powder

The Estee Lauder Aeromatte Ultralucent Pressed Powder is probably the best translucent set powder I've ever used. With that said, I haven't tried any Japanese brands yet. I haven't been able to find any interesting ones to date, so I switched camp for now :D



The powder is completely colorless and light, delivering a matte veil that lasts all day. It is not fragranced, at least not that I noticed. I use it only on my oily t-zones (forehead and nose) as the rest of my face is dry. When I do use it all over, I am pleasantly surprised it adapts to my dry-combo skin and doesn't give me dry patches like the Amazing Cosmetics Powderset does. And the compact is rather large, so it took me a whole year to hit the pan!



And because the compact is quite large, it is also way too bulky. I absolutely love this powder, but I think they really need to come up with a better and sleeker design because a square box is just ugly!

Hi,
I'm using the same product as well, my question is that do you use any moisturizer before applying the powder?

with this one, if I use a moisturizer, it becomes difficult to apply the powder - it somehow loses its smoothness

Hi iraz,

Thank you for visiting my blog and sorry for the late reply!

I use a waterproof sunscreen as a base (I use Allie now, before it was Sofina, and before that it was Shiseido), and I don't wear moisturizer underneath my Allie sunscreen unless I really need some. Even then, I'd dab just a tiny little bit wherever I need it.

May be you could try a waterproof sunscreen too, or perhaps a mattefying base?

Sorry I'm not much of a help with this one. I never go out without my waterproof sunscreen so I don't really know how the powder reacts to just moisturized skin.
