Shiseido Future Solution LX Total Radiance Loose Powder, $80, thebay.com
The claim (in our own words): “This luxurious loose powder is made of the Japanese botanical M, which prevents skin damage, and Aura Radiance Technology that helps brighten the complexion with a touch of glow.”
The conclusion: “On the regs, my face looks like someone just splashed me with a bucket of water—in a good way. Getting that dewy, milky-makeup look with a finishing powder, however, has always been a bit of a bummer. The Total Radiance Loose Powder doesn’t dim my shine and provides an extra bit of glisten to the skin that my brunch crew assumed was the result of a facial. Bless!” —Nezariel Scott, digital content producer
