Setting makeup with loose powder is essential for long-lasting and crease-free makeup. I have used loose powders by several brands in the past – Ben Nye, Maybelline, Covergirl, and so on. Among all that I have tried, I loved the one by Ben Nye the most – the popular Ben Nye Banana Powder. I wanted to try out the loose powder by other brands, so decided to try out the one in this review.

My Experience with Cinema Secrets Ultralucent Setting Powder:

Cinema Secrets is a famous brand for stage makeup or long-lasting makeup or for making face camera-ready. For these reasons and the shade selection, I decided to buy it from my local Sephora store.

The product comes in a tub packaging. The product is held in a translucent tub with tiny holes on top which dispenses product when it is turned upside down and gently shook. It has a grey, shiny lid on top which is a little hard to open or screw back in place. I use a wet makeup sponge to pick up a small amount of powder and tap off excess product. It is best applied by pressing and rolling the sponge onto the skin. A fluffy makeup brush can be used to apply product as well, although that is not my preferred mode of application. Loose powder is perfect for ‘baking’ face makeup.

I use it to set my under-eye makeup, under my cheek bones to accentuate them and around my mouth to prevent laugh lines as the day progresses. I then use a large fluff brush to blend the powder to ‘set’ makeup for a long-lasting natural finish.

This product claims to be easy to blend, which is true – it does blend seamlessly into my face. It claims to leave a transparent, matte finish – it does do that. It claims to be moisture resistant, prevents shine, and allows skin to breathe easily – agree with the first two, but not sure about the last one. It is formulated without talc which is a plus point and is free of gluten or parabens. Also, this powder is vegan and fair trade certified.

A downside of this product is that it is not meant for flash photography and should be avoided or used with caution while applying makeup for low lighting or a shoot. Also, it should be used in moderate to small quantities or it will make face super cakey and unnatural.

Pros of Cinema Secrets Ultralucent Setting Powder:

  • Tub packaging, it dispenses the right amount of product when you shake it gently.
  • Priced right since it is meant to compete with more expensive options.
  • Can be applied with a wet sponge or a fluffy brush.
  • Formulated without talc, gluten, or parabens and is vegan and fair trade certified.
  • Imparts transparent, matte finish. It is moisture resistant and prevents shine.
  • Six shade options available.

Cons of Cinema Secrets Ultralucent Setting Powder:

  • Not meant for flash flash photography and should be avoided or used with caution while applying makeup for low lighting or a shoot.
  • The lid is a little difficult to work with.

I recommend this product to those who ‘bake’ their face and who do not subject their face to flash photography. It is comparable to other high-end, more expensive options.
