Prada Beauty
For the last several months I've been on a mission to find the perfect powder. I've tried everything: Lancôme (an old favorite but I needed a change), Dior (too heavy/mask-like), Shu Uemura (even their lightest shade was too dark for my skin)...you get the idea. So when I read in W that Prada had created the perfect powder (Hydrating Compact Powder), my eyes lit up. Needless to say, I ran out and bought it immediately. And I must say - it certainly lives up to the hype! I love it!

Usually by noon, my face is an oil slick - not so anymore; this powder keeps me matte all day. It gives great coverage and looks/feels natural. It even comes with an adorable pink leather carrying case.

Just wanted to share the good news!

Which Prada make up products do you love?

I am loving Prada's lip tint! I tried it a while ago and remember thinking it was sticky. But the other day I was buying some powder and tried it again and it felt wonderful! So I bought the set with all the colors

Makes my lips feel sooooooo soft!

Prada's lip tint, concealor, and hydrating gel are all at TJ Maxx for under $20!! I bought the concealer for $10 and I must say it is very very natural looking (a mousse-like formula), though an eye cream underneath is a must have.

Yay! You won't be disappointed! I recently turned my mom on to the powder and she loves it too (her skin is very dry and it works for her too).

Off Topic: pink_lipgloss if your skin is as oily as mine was, I would also recommend La Mer's Oil Absorbing lotion - it's the most amazing thing I've ever tried

Yes! Didn't see this thread earlier on.

I bought the powder last week and have since, used it twice. I must admit that I bought the powder because I just love Prada's skincare as well as the makeup (but I've stopped using them because they're unavailable where I live).

Surprise of surprises, they actually bring in this powder. I tried the powder at the store, like how fine it looks, loved the shade (white), love the pink casing a lot, so I went back another day and got it.

I love how my face look so natural yet made up.

Isn't it wonderful! I should buy stock in Prada Beauty :p

As for the La Mer, if you go to La Mer's website you can search by country and city for stores (they also sell online I think). Trust me, it's worth every penny
