I hope winter is treating everyone well. So recently, I have gotten into the no-makeup makeup trend which is those days when I stick to my BB or CC cream, mascara, lip gloss, and a setting powder. Not many powders really conceal blemishes but I really wanted to find something that did give good coverage and at least minimized few blemishes. I wanted something budget friendly and while I was on the search, I found the Coty Airspun Loose Face Powder. This is quite a famous one with many beauty gurus and I thought I should give it a try. Read on to know how this powder fared!

My Experience with Coty Airspun Loose Face Powder:
You can buy this powder in several different shades. I picked up the translucent extra coverage shade to see if it really does conceal like the product claims. The powder is quite soft and silky when it comes to the texture. Also, the good thing is that the box is quite huge and this will last you a long time. It is worth what I paid for including the shipping. I did not think it would be such a big box with so much product inside. The packaging is not travel friendly as the lid keeps opening.
You also get a really soft fluffy powder puff inside which is quite good for quick touch-ups. I just used the powder alone to see how much it stays on my oily skin and how well it covers up the blemishes. It does give the skin a smooth look; it blends out like a dream and does the job of brightening the face but it does not conceal the blemishes at all. If you use too much of it then there are chances you could have white patches on the skin. If you do blend it out well, then there is no worry.
The powder is a little dry so I would not recommend this to dry skin beauties. Other than this, it stayed on my skin for 6 hours which is pretty good and it did control the oil on my face for 5 hours. After 5 hours, I could see the powder fading off from my T-zone area. This powder is great for baking and I am enjoying it at the moment.
The only things I dislike are that it contains paraben; I cannot travel with it because it is huge and the lid is a pain. Also, some people might not like the fragrance of this powder because it has that grandmother smell or that vintage old kind of smell. I don’t know how to exactly describe it but I am completely fine with the fragrance. Overall, I love this powder and I think this could be my holy grail setting powder!
