After I do my base makeup, I always set my makeup with a loose powder. Setting makeup with loose powder is essential for long lasting and crease free makeup. I have used loose powders by several brands – Cinema Secret, 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 more loose powders from other brands, so I decided to check out this Maybelline Face Studio Master Fix Setting Loose Powder.
Facestudio Master Fix™ Setting + Perfecting Powder. This translucent powder sets, mattifies, blurs, and smoothes with an undetectable finish.
My Experience with Maybelline Face Studio Master Fix Setting Loose Powder:
Maybelline is an affordable brand with some amazing products and it offers a wide range of products to choose from. I was looking for an affordable translucent loose powder and decided to give a try to the one by Maybelline.
The product comes in tub packaging. The powder is held in a translucent tub with tiny holes on top which dispenses the product when it is turned upside down and gently shook. It has a black, 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 or a pointed contour brush to blend the powder to ‘set’ makeup for a long-lasting natural finish. This process helps give a diffused look to makeup.
It claims to create a soft-focus effect as it sets makeup and mattifies shine, blurs, and smoothes makeup. This shade also looks natural on all skin types and leaves a smooth, flawless finish. It is easy to blend and gives a look to makeup. It leaves a transparent matte finish. It is moisture resistant, prevents shine, and allows skin to breathe easily, but it does contain talc which can be a downside for some and they might need to look for a talc-free loose powder.
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 Maybelline Face Studio Master Fix Setting Loose Powder:
- I like the tub packaging, it dispenses the right amount of product when it is gently shook.
- Priced right since it is meant to compete with more expensive options.
- Can be applied with a wet or a fluffy sponge.
- Controls moisture and prevents shine. It gives a smooth, seamless finish to face.
- This shade can go on most skin tones and gives a translucent finish to face.
Cons of Maybelline Face Studio Master Fix Setting Loose Powder:
- Not meant for flash photography and should be avoided or used with caution while applying makeup for low lighting or a shoot. This is a draw back with a lot of loose powders.
- Formulated with talc and can be a downside for some of us.
- The product will run out soon if used daily.
Would I Recommend Maybelline Face Studio Master Fix Setting Loose Powder?
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. All those who can’t use products with talc should avoid it.
