There are very few products that I repurchase – simply because I’m constantly testing new products and searching for the next change-my-life product. So, to say that I can’t remember how many JANE IREDALE PUREBRESSED BASE IN GOLDEN GLOW ($40 for refill, dermstore.com) I’ve purchased over the last few years – is a big testimonial in itself.
Here’s the product’s secret: Pairing the water-resistant, high coverage, long-wearing, SPF 20, bismuth-free powder foundation with MAKE UP FOR EVER HD MICROFINISH PUFF ($10, sephora.com) is how the magic happens.
The MUFE puff is very thin, so you can use your fingers to get around the nose area, under the eyes and to stipple product onto dark spots and blemishes. The soft, fine terry cloth like texture of the puff evenly and smoothly applies powder to the entire face. I’ve tried the powder with several other puffs and applicators – and what you use to apply your makeup DOES make a difference. Plus, they are totally washable – so even though they’re $10, you get lots of wear out of them (use both sides, wash with warm soap and water, reshape, let dry).
