Besame Cosmetics Brightening Vanilla Powder

Besame Cosmetics is a brand that I've been looking at longingly for a really long time, but never actually bought anything.  Thanks to my dealer, Sephora, for making it easy to try one of their products out.

PRODUCT: This is a yellow-toned HD finishing powder.  It's really finely milled so the texture is really soft. The finish it gives is really lovely, and I haven't had any issues with caking or it screwing up my makeup EXCEPT on days where my skin is mega dry. On those days, it emphasizes any flakes I have (like how any powder would).  This does have a vanilla scent, which disappears very quickly once the powder is applied.

Check out that fancy manicure! *barf*
The tiny velvety powder puff that's included is no slouch either! Ok, it's nothing extraordinary, but it does the job and I feel fancy putting my fingers behind the ribbon loop.

PACKAGING: The design on this is sooo pretty, but the outer packaging is plastic. I'm afraid the twist-off cap will eventually crack or break. There is a plastic sifter on the inside, as well as a plastic guard for the powder puff, and to prevent powder going everywhere-- yay! I probably will remove the sifter because not enough product comes out to my liking.

PRICE: $22 for 0.21 oz

All in all, I really like this product! The yellow tint helps correct redness I get, and the powder itself gives a blurring effect which is always welcome considering I am cursed with large pores.

As always, you don't have to take my word for it. Besame Cosmetics' Brightening Vanilla Powder is available now from Sephora.
