Susan Thompson Cosmetics Dual Powder in Light | Review

Press Sample (Affiliated Links)

One of the new, and sensational creations, from Susan Thompson Cosmetics is the wonderful Dual Powder. As a celebrity makeup artist, Susan Thompson knows the importance of multitasking and  hard-working makeup that can survive the long hours on the set, but that also works perfectly for daily use for the rest of us.  

Dual Powder is a medium to full coverage foundation and finishing powder in one ultra finely milled silky powder. It has a smooth and creamy consistency that glides across the skin effortlessly, and it neither settles into fine lines, nor does it emphasize pores. Unlike some powders, I do not find this one at all drying for my normal/combination skin. However, if you have very dry skin it may best be used as a finishing powder lightly applied over your foundation.
Susan Thompson Cosmetics Dual Powder can be applied with a makeup sponge or a brush to achieve a perfect airbrushed finish, but my favored method of application for the perfect airbrushed finish is, without question, The Artis Oval 10 Brush (reviewed here). 

I am obsessed with this brush, and it really enhances application of this high quality powder. Furthermore, the Artis brush fits over the Dual Powder compact perfectly, picks up exactly the amount of powder that is needed, and spreads it across the skin quickly, and buffs it out for a perfect natural finish in seconds.

Available Shades: Fair, Light. Medium and Deep. I use Light.
Foundation and powder all in one
