From The Vault: Organic Glam Photo Finish Pressed Powder

This months delve into the vault revisits the Antioxidant rich pressed powder from The Organic Pharmacy make-up range, Organic Glam.

Organic Glam Photo Finish Antioxidant Pressed Powder – Translucent

This is a lovely pressed powder from The Organic Pharmacy’s make-up collection.

Rather than a heavy, flat matte powdered finish, Photo Finish removes the excess shine but leaves the skin with a slight flattering sheen (this sounds like a contradiction I know). Unlike some pressed powders it is micro-fine and doesn’t clog or sit heavily on the skin – usually requiring very little product to mattify.

Served up in a neat slimline piano black compact, the powder contains protecting and nourishing antioxidants vitamins A, C and E and Green Tea which in the words of the product description ‘protects the skin from free radical damage’. There is a slight but not unpleasant, herbal scent on opening the compact that could be off putting to some clients however this doesn’t translate onto the skin.

Due to its mica content it may give a little too much bounce for some broadcast or photographic work, however it is perfect for those times when strong lighting isn’t an issue.

Since using this up a while ago, I haven’t found the need to replace it as I have found a couple of pressed powders I prefer; namely the Jane Iredale Beyond Matte and Green People Pressed powders.

Priced at £41.95 for 4 grams and with a 6 month shelf life, Photo Finish sure isn’t cheap but it is a lovely everyday powder for those who have the budget.
