Good basic setting powder

The powder works well to reduce appearance of pores and oil. It's nicely mattifying without looking overly cakey or dry. It doesn't leave my skin feeling dry and doesn't irritate my eyes or cause issues with my contact lenses.

My only complaint would be that I have to swirl my brush around the pan quite a lot before it picks up a good amount of product.

Life-changing!

I started using the prep/finish powder this week and even after washing my makeup off, my skin is already feeling soft and smooth!! It’s a beautiful product and I can’t wait to get the rest of the range 😊

Prep/finish powder

It took me a few tries to get the hang of this. I prefer to use for both prep and finish. It helps the rest of my Aleph products to settle on my skin well and to hold them for longer wear.

Light!

the prep/finish powder is so easy to use and feels so soft too. I use it on my eye lids before I use the eye pigment product or the cheek/lip tints and once I have applied all my make up, I finish up with a dab of powder all over my face to 'set' my make-up.
