So I’m reviewing another popular product that practically everyone and their mummies were using in 2017, the Sacha Buttercup Setting Powder.
In this post, I’ll also be comparing it to other powders I own.
Sit tight, it’s about to be a fun ride!
BUTTERCUP is the AMAZON #1 Best-Seller in face powder and is ideal for medium to dark skin tones. BUTTERCUP LIGHT is recommended for light to medium skin tones. They can be used to highlight, set/bake your concealer or as an all-over face powder. They do not give off a white cast or turn ashy in bright lighting or photos. They absorb oil, reduce shine and keep your face matte for hours.
This setting powder comes in a traditional jar with a sieve. Personally, I don’t feel it is very travel-friendly as the contents can spill when in transit. But that’s just me.
This powder comes in a bright yellow shade which is so beautiful and will suit a variety of skin tones.
It is so finely milled and sets concealer so well. I use it for setting the highlighted parts of my face and it gives a matte finish that is not flat, so people with oily skin will really like this powder.
I also like that it’s quite light/translucent so whatever product is underneath it can peep through. That also means it’s not heavy on coverage…lol.
It also does not settle into fine lines, which is great.
It is also great for flash photography and does not give off a white cast.
For darker skin tones? I think it is translucent enough to suit deeper skin tones and has just enough yellow to brighten that under eye area.
The Sacha Buttercup is the most finely milled, shade-friendly and most translucent of all the three powders.
It falls in between the Makeup Revolution one and the Black Opal one in terms of how mattifying it is, with the Black Opal being the most mattifying.
If you want the Sacha effect but don’t want to spend as much, you should try out the Makeup Revolution setting powder. I wouldn’t call it a dupe(it isn’t). It is very finely milled but is not as mattifying and has more white tones in it(hence darker skin tones or oily people may not like it as much).
I love this powder. It is a super beautiful finely milled setting powder that would suit a variety of skin tones of WOC.
