NYX Hd finishing powder vs It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores setting powder.

NYX finishing powder VS it Cosmetics bye bye poresWhen it comes to makeup, I am always on the hunt for a good setting powder. I have tried Cliniques Translucent powder. I have used loose powders like E.L.F HD setting powder and always still feel like I haven’t found the best for me. Then I got a sample of the it Cosmetics in a bag, WOW. I loved it, and then I got my mother a NYX HD finishing powder to help her set her makeup. The results were great. So which is better? Well I broke it down a bit.

I am a user of the it Cosmetics CC powder already and love what it does for my skin. I can wear it with no allergic reactions, and it doesn’t oxidize as much as other brands. So, when I got a sample of the it Cosmetics bye-bye pores I knew I would fall in love with it. And damn I sure do! This powder is fantastic, and I put it on under my pressed powder to fill in the pores to get a flawless coverage. It certainly works well! It is a great setting powder and it is cruelty free. Not so sure about the anti aging part but it does everthing else well. This is a prestige item, and yes I love it a lot. This product is in fact worth the $29 it costs. Truly translucent, and I would love to know how ladies of color fare with this powder as well as the NYX as sometimes powders that claim to be translucent tend to give of a whiteish look on their skin. Let me know in the comments so I can keep a mental note for future blog posts.

OK, good ol, NYX. This pressed powder doesn’t come with a mirror or powder pad(don’t use it anyways for setting) it is affordable. NYX is widely available at many drugstores and stores around like TARGET even Forever 21! This comes in 3 shades to help target certain issues. But I went with white or should be a “clear”. This powder should fill in pores and fine lines, and although it doesn’t do AS good of a job in that for me as the it Cosmetics, it is one HELL of a setting powder! Especially for the price of $10 bucks! it had a slight oxidation, but nothing that would keep me from rebuying it. As far as cruelty free, it says it is. ,

SO which is better? Well they both have great things about them! The NYX is great and is more budget friendly but the it Cosmetics is the one I will probably repurchase after I use up the NYX. I just like it more personally.

Have you tried either powder? Which is your fave?

    Thank you for sharing it. I feel more comfortable trying new cosmetics that have already been tested by someone.

      I use them to keep everything matte. I have super oily skin, and issues with oxidation. So setting powders and setting sprays along with help with it.They are really good powders.
