Four Setting Powders on Oily Skin

Four Setting Powders on Oily Skin || Musings of a Gossip

Hello lovely peeps! 

Today I’m sharing my thoughts on setting powders! I have crazy oily skin due to all the acne medications I use so I’m always on the hunt for products that will stop me from looking like a total grease ball or making my foundation transfer. To be 100% transparent...I haven’t solved this mystery completely. I’m still trying different primer/foundation/setting powder combos. 

These are the current 4 setting powders I’m using:

Giorgio Armani Micro-Fil Translucent Loose Setting Powder || Musings of a Gossip

1. Giorgio Armani Micro-Fil Translucent Loose Setting Powder: Armani and Chanel are my two preferred beauty brands. My dermatologist doesn’t approve but we won’t tell her lol. I love the slight shimmer to this powder. It’s not too shimmery or greasy looking. It gives you a subtle glow. Every time I wear this with my Armani Luminous Silk Foundation (Shade #6), I get MAJOR compliments! I love using it under my eyes as well because I’m starting to get lines there so this doesn’t cake, settle or make me look older. I get the JLo glow! 

2. Giorgio Armani Neo Nude Compact Foundation: This product was just launched about two months ago and I’m obsessed. It’s similar to the top powder but this comes in a compact for touch ups and it has a slight tint to it. I wear shade #3. Again, I get major compliments when I use this but one down side...I’ve used it everyday for about 3 weeks and I can see the pan already. It’s like $58 so I’m a little upset I’m almost done with the compact! I don’t think I’m using too much but maybe I shouldn’t be using as a setting powder? It looks amazing's lightweight, finely milled, and blends easily! 

3. Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder: This is the cult classic with a major following. Honestly, I like this powder but it’s not my absolute favorite. I mostly use this in the summer or warmer days because it makes my face matte. But I find that I sometimes look too dry if I use it in the winter. I also create my own little mix with this and my Armani powder so I have the best of both world. For oily skin girls all year round, this is a must have product. 

4. Chanel Les Beige Healthy Glow Sheer Colour SPF15: So I love anything Chanel beauty. Love love love. I know my dermatologist doesn’t want me using anything with fragrance but surprisingly, this doesn’t make me break out at all. Nothing from Chanel does! I have no idea why my sensitive acne prone skin loves it or maybe it knows not to mess around with Chanel! Hahaha. I use the #30 powder to set my face but I don’t use under the eyes. For some reason, I only like loose powders for that. I also use #50 as a bronzer. It lasts soooo long. I have had this for a year or more!

For all of these setting powders, I apply using this brush. Loveeeeeee. I am still on the hunt for the perfect setting powder because I still have to touch up throughout the day. Am I asking for too much? Apply once and be done with it??

What setting powders are using? Which do you think I should try next?
