Sally Hansen Cornsilk Skin Brightener Review

Hi Ladies,

How are you doing? I know it’s been a while since I posted my last article, but I have more time now and I’m back in the saddle.

Sally Hansen Cornsilk Skin Brightener Review

I hope you’ll enjoy my reviews in which I usually write about cosmetics available in European drugstores and online shops and now, back to business.  Sally Hansen Skin Brightening Loose Powder is supposed to control shine and brighten your skin.  When I bought Sally Hansen Powder, I was desperately looking for a product for everyday use that would give a natural, healthy glow. How did it work out for me?

Using the attached applicator, I dusted the powder over my face and my first thought was, “how is this supposed to control shine? I’m sparkling like Edward Cullen from the Twilight movie!.” It was just awful, my face was glowing, but in a silly, glittery way (especially in the sun). Needless to say, there was no mattifying effect at all.


I was quite disappointed and hid this powder in the drawer for a few weeks, but the other day, I decided to give it another chance. I used Calvin Klein Subliminal Purity Loose Powder and then applied Sally Hansen only on my eyelids and cheekbones. Surprisingly, I was quite happy how it turned out and now I use this combination for my everyday make up.

Price and Weight:

A few dollars for 0.28 oz/7.9 grams (cheap!).

Pros of Sally Hansen Cornsilk Skin Brightener:

  • Fine face and body highlighter.
  • Low price.
  • Efficient, one package can last ages.
  • Hides dark undereye circles.
  • Transparent, should be suitable for every skin color.

Cons of Sally Hansen Cornsilk Skin Brightener:

  • Looks dreadful if you apply it on your whole face.
  • Doesn’t mattify, while it’s supposed to absorb oil.
  • Terrible applicator, I threw it away after first use and replaced with a small sponge (not much better, though).
  • Really impractical package, it’s easy to get the dust all over your clothes.

Rating and Conclusion:

3 out of 5. I was hesitating because as “shine control all-over face powder,” it fails completely. On the other hand, if you use it as a highlighter, you can expect a pretty smooth result. I also think it would be a nice touch if you applied it with a big brush over your body right before going to a glam party. Sally Hansen Skin Brightening Loose Powder can be a great addition, but you should combine it with a better powder or a foundation.  I definitely recommend above-mentioned Calvin Klein loose powder 🙂
