POWDER LIPSTICK AND MASCARA??? | Beauty With Mi | Refinery29


I ate it. Hey guys, it’s Mi-Anne and this is Beauty
With Mi. What do you think of when I say the word powder? I think of face powder, maybe powder foundation…I sure as hell don’t think about powdered lipstick but I have some today. I’ve been noticing a lot of brands come out
with powdered versions of kind of unique products lately, so I decided to put them all to the
test on my face and do a full face of powder makeup. But before we get started, make sure you subscribe down below. Hit the little red button down there so we
can hang out every single Monday. So without further ado, let’s get started. I have a very strange foundation to test. It is from Jay Manuel Beauty and it is a powder to cream. It just– you rub it in and it just turns
into a cream. It’s a very matte foundation but it’s actually
a little bit tacky to the touch. I will say it doesn’t blend a ton. So you do kind of have to stamp it on and
blend in the area and then dip in for more. I think it’s done a really good job of evening
me out, but I do wish it had more coverage. All right, so concealer, I have a new product. This is from a brand called Pur, and it actually comes with a little Pur spongy thing. The actual instructions are to apply the concealer onto the sponge itself and then tap it under your eyes. I’m gonna try that. And I’m also gonna try it with a brush. I think it’s a little difficult to build up
coverage with a product like this. So I’m going to powder my face with this Pixi powder. All over so that my bronzer and my blush and everything goes on smoothly and evenly. All right, so moving right along to bronzer, I have this one from Lancôme, never used before but it is a loose powder bronzer that comes in
a convenient little brush package. This bronzer looks pretty shimmery and a little bit on the orange side so I don’t think it’s going to be a good contour bronzer. I’m gonna try to actually bronze and warm
up my skin. Ooh, I just got a burst of shimmer. I think the color of it is nice if you want
like an actual warm bronzer, one that you can put on the high points of your face to
mimic, you know, having been outside in the sun. I think that the component being in that little click up package, makes it really difficult to see how much product you’re putting on
your face. So I have this really cool product that I’m
really excited to try. It’s by Chanel. Ooh. There’s a balm and a lip powder. There are a few ways you can use this apparently, you can just use the balm straight from the pan. You can use the powder on top of the balm
but you can also use the actual powder as an eyeshadow or a blush. So in this case I’m actually going to use it as a blush What was that!? I actually quite like it. I think it has a very nice kind of matte finish. The coloring was really beautiful, it was
kind of a pinky coral. I think it brightened up my face a lot. So I don’t have a weird highlighter today, it’s just a highlighter that I’ve actually used before and I really love. It’s by Dose Of Color. It is a baked highlighter. It has this beautiful marbling running through it. And I love the subtle glow it gives. So I’m just going to dip my highlighter brush into it and dust it onto my cheekbones. So I have very oily eyelids, so I’m going
to use a new eyeshadow today that I’ve never used before. But I want to see how it holds up on its own
and how it holds up with the eyelid primer. My eyeshadow today is actually going to be
from a brand called TPSY. It’s called Two Drink Minimum. How cute is that? So this is the lilac side and it has a little
bit of shadow on an actual sponge tip so you don’t even need to use brushes. And on the other side is another color. This nice bronze. So I’m going to start with this beautiful
warm brown. Oh, it’s so easy to use. I think applying is really easy. But I think I’m still going to want to use a blending brush to blend it out. I’m going to do a little bit of the deeper
shade on my lower lash line. If you want to dip back into this product, and you want to wear quite a bit of eyeshadow, it’s a little bit difficult. You have to keep dipping it, it’s springy. But it’s just so convenient to have these
little sponges, you don’t have to bring extra brushes. Alright, so I’m going to move on to a little bit of liner. Just a little bit. And I have these L’Oreal Infallible. I have these Infallible Smokissime eyeliners from L’Oreal. I think what I’m going to go with is the brown shade today. Wow, these really stay on, I mean look. It’s a really easy diffuse line that you really
don’t need brushes for but I’m gonna use a brush just to diffuse it even further. So my mascara that I have is kind of an exciting one. I’ve never used it before. It’s called the Bésame mascara cake and it
comes in this little tin that you open up and it comes the little brush and a dry mascara formula. Kind of looks like a piece of dark chocolate. It is kind of the same componentry and style as a lot of the mascaras that people used in the 1920s. I’ll put a drop of water onto the actual cake
and then rub this little brush in it and use that to apply my mascara. I think it’s supposed to turn into a little bit of a paste. I really like how this has defined my eyelashes. I don’t think it’s holding a curl. I’m gonna get my bottom lashes. Wish me luck. This brush isn’t great for getting bottom
lashes, especially if you have no eyelashes like I do. It kind of is hard to work with. You kind of end up getting the mascara all
over. But I think that if you used a spoolie, like
just run to Sephora and just get a free sample spoolie and use that instead, I think it’ll
be much easier. So I actually have a powder eyebrow product for you. And they’re kind of weird. It’s from this brand called Blink Brow Bar. It’s a powder eyebrow product that comes out with this little spongy applicator that you kind of put onto your eyebrows and fill them in with. It works, I think that it’s a little bit messy if you aren’t careful, you can get a little bit of fall out. I thought that was a kind of a gimmicky product first but I think I was able to get a good look out of it. Definitely have a spoolie though. So last but not least, is lipstick and I’m very excited for this step because I have these Clē cosmetics melting lip powders. And they are straight up powder. But I’m choosing between the shades, Desert Rose and Hot Choco. I’m gonna actually swatch them, so I can
see. So I’m gonna use the shade Desert Rose. Aw, man, I got some on my pants. Ooh. It looks like powder in the tube but is going
on like a liquid. Super powder and matte finish but I will say that this lipstick doesn’t layer over itself nicely so it’s kind of like do it in one go and don’t try to layer on top. I’m gonna give myself a pat on the back for
this look because some of these products were really hard to work with. Like the lip color. Love the eye look. Do I think the powder is worth the mess? Short answer no. Long answer…if you want something that’s
a little bit more unique, something that’s a little fun to play with, totally go for it. I’m gonna wear this for the rest of the day. I’m gonna see how it wears and then at the end of the day I’ll let you know my final thoughts. See you then. Bye! Just got home and I’ve been wearing this makeup for quite awhile now and I’ve got to say I’m pretty oily. But I’m quite surprised as to how natural
the foundation looks. It didn’t cover. I do think that even as I wore it, it started
to wear even more. Eyes, primer side held up way better. Not too much smudging, I think the mascara smudged a little bit. I liked the way it came out but the powder
products themselves are so difficult to work with, they get everywhere. They got on my pants, as I was putting it on my face I felt like I was breathing it in and coughing.
