YVES SAINT LAURENT BEAUTÉ POUDRE COMPACTE RADIANCE

URBAN DECAY NAKED SKIN ULTRA DEFINITION PRESSED FINISHING POWDER
Reconsider your stance on powder with this weightless formula by Urban Decay. The silky texture sweeps onto the skin to diminish shine and minimize the look of imperfections. Best of all, your skin won’t look chalky or cakey as a result, but rather radiant and natural-looking. The compact powder comes with a full-size mirror—you know, for on-the-go touch-ups—and a small compartment to hold the application sponge. Apply it after foundation or a makeup base to tone down an aggressive shine into a steady glow.
