Hello darlings, I am a big fan of Selena Gomez since I was a kid and we already did a review on Rare beauty’s 2021 collection a few weeks ago and here we are again. Please be ready for 2 other reviews after this one introducing her newest collection, but today we are reviewing the new Rare Beauty Setting Powder Always An Optimist Soft Radiance.
Rare Beauty Setting Powder Always An Optimist Soft Radiance is a silky, do-it-all powder, that promises to smooth, blur, and control shine for a soft natural finish and all-day comfort.
When Selena Gomez was creating the Rare’s beauty Setting Powder Always An Optimist Soft Radiance her goal was to give us a setting power that acted like skin. To be honest, at the beginning I was quite confused because how can a powder do its job if it’s not giving you a powdery look? 🤔
So as soon as this powder is available at Sephora France I ran to get it and try it for you guys. I have been trying also to do Tiktok demos to show you more about how to use the products and how they apply because I think through a written review you don’t get to see how well the products apply – or not-.
Rare Beauty Setting Powder Always An Optimist Soft Radiance – First Impression :
“I wanted our powder to be effective, of course, but it was also crucial to me that it moves with your skin to look really natural.” – Selena Gomez
I don’t know about you, but each time I open my Laura Mercie powder it goes everywhere. The fact that Selena created this smart yet easy mechanism to close and open the powder is just life-changing. To secure your powder, you just turn the little Rare Beauty logo in the powder to lock or unlock it. I have the shade “light” and at first, when I unboxed it I thought: why is it pink? It’s not it’s just the packaging that gives it a slight pinky color. The powder is quite thick BUT it feels like powdered sugar.
Rare Beauty Setting Powder Always An Optimist Soft Radiance is a mattifying talc-free loose mineral powder that will help balance the oily areas on the face such as the T zone. It will give you blurred-looking pores and smooth skin texture. Available in 5 different shades I took the Clair and it matches me perfectly.
Here is my Always An Optimist Soft Radiance review:
As you can see in my TikTok demo. The first swipe was enough to smooth and mattify my under-eye and nose corners. I am used to a thick powdery powder that makes you look flawless. However, ike you have something on your face. It was the first time having powder that actually did the job but at the same time melted into my skin.
The Rare Beauty Setting Powder Always An Optimist Soft Radiance really helps you melt off the oily T-zone. Letting your natural beautiful glowy skin show off. I am quite surprised at how long-lasting this powder is. Because I’ve been wearing it for around 5 hours and in the flash picture down below you can see how flawless I look 😍. Look at me I am matte and glowy NOT oily. I don’t look dry a problem I do have with Laura Mercier powder, my skin looks really good. I forgot the mention but I’ve used Rare Beauty Liquid Touch Brightening Concealer, and it never looked better.
Is Rare Beauty Setting Powder Always An Optimist Soft Radiance worth buying?
YES GIRL YES 🙌 ! This is my new favorite setting powder. If you have oily skin like me, and you want something to neutralize the oil without making you look cakey and letting your natural glow stand out. This powder is for you. I also think it’s perfect for a “no-makeup” look because it will bring the best out of your skin.
It is very lightweight and melts immediately into your skin. The finish is matte but not super matte, keeping the natural glow and not oil. For me, this new powder is a 10/10, go for it.
It’s time to say goodbye. I hope you enjoyed this review.
See you soon💕
