10 New Face Powders You'll Barely Feel on Your Skin
Set it and forget it!
(SPOT.ph) Any true beauty junkie knows that finding a holy-grail product is a lot like finding a soulmate—you can spend months or even years searching, trying as many products as you can, and still not find The One. The search is particularly tough when it comes to complexion products. Unlike lippies or eyeshadows, you don’t constantly need to be stocking up on new colors of foundation and powder, you just need the one that perfectly matches your unique skin composition. And when you find the right one, you stick to it.
If you still haven’t found your perfect powder or if you feel like your current fave might not be as good of a match as you thought, we rounded up a few new ones you might want to try.
Here are 10 new lightweight powders you can shop now:
Ready to Glow Anti E-Aging Powder (P1,299) from Happy Skin
We recently rounded up some SPF makeup products to help protect your face in the summertime, but the sun’s not the only thing that can damage your skin these days. This powder foundation from Happy Skin’s claim to fame is its “sun to screen filter,” which promises to protect your complexion from the blue light and radiation that comes from electronic devices like your phone. These factors may cause wrinkling and redness in the long run. The powder's light, natural formula will leave you with a fresh, radiant complexion.

Advanced Radiance Age-Defying Pressed Powder (P595) from Covergirl
Covergirl’s Advanced Radiance powder will quickly brighten up dull or tired-looking skin by evening out your complexion, blurring fine lines and wrinkles, and leaving a soft luminous finish that’ll make it look like you actually sleep eight hours a night. Best part? It’s less than P600.
