Stila Set & Correct Baked Powder Trio | Review



Stila Set & Correct Baked Powder Trio £24 - A setting powder is something that I've always overlooked in my routine really, not in terms of not using one, but more because I take it for granted. I have combination skin and am dry almost everywhere but my temples so I only ever powder there and under my eyes to set my concealer. Therefore I've never really thought of using anything over than my Rimmel Stay Matte powder as it did the job and that was that. I've been lucky enough these past 6 months to work on a Stila Makeup Counter and try new things extensively before buying them and therefore you know that anything that's made it into my collection is a winner for me. This is the Stila Set & Correct Baked Powder Trio and it's been such a hit in my family that my Mum is already on her second one and it's finally moved me away from my usual routine. It's very much a sister product to the one step correct however it is applied after your foundation as opposed to before (duh?). It has the same green, peach and lavender colours to correct any redness, dullness and sallow tones but does not add any colour whatsoever. It's very easy to create a cakey mess when setting with powders, especially on dry skin however with a light dusting of this is fixes your foundation in place, keeps any shine or oil at bay all day and you can barely feel it's there. It is rather pricey at £24 and I'm concerned at the rate my Mum got through hers but it's lasting well for me. The trick is not to waste the product, as you twist the clear top to grind off some of the product, make sure to only dispense as much as you actually need, which in my case is amount as much as is shown. It does become messy if you do any more than you need and I do find that it doesn't keep too well in the compact once it's been dispensed into the top compartment. Will I repurchase it once it runs out? Quite possibly! It is a bit step up from my usual £4 Rimmel Stay matte however it's beautifully light and I can imagine it making more of an impact in the summer.
