In Appreciation of: Jones Road’s Tinted Face Powder
It is our honour to announce the latest inductee to the Liberty Beauty Hall of Fame – a featherlight face powder designed to dial down summer shine
Hold onto your hats – we are officially entering shiny skin season. Those few months of the year when the hot weather whips pores up into a frenzy, casting a veil of sweat and excess sebum across every inch of the face and sending makeup sliding down your cheeks within hours of application. So isn’t it a rather fortunate coincidence then, that a hero product with the ability to mop up excess shine and lock makeup in place, all without hindering your glow has just joined the Liberty Beauty Hall of Fame? Meet Jones Road’s Tinted Face Powder , £32.
The Rise to Fame
Granted, we’d apply just about any formula to come from the brain of makeup legend, Bobbi Brown. Her Jones Road products are the stuff of some form of cosmetic wizardry, perfectly answering our every beauty prayer and mitigating our every bugbear. And for Brown’s latest magic trick, she’s milled a powder so very fine and in so flattering a range of shades, it manages to remedy excess shine without leaving the complexion flat and lifeless.
The key is in the featherlight texture. Brush a little onto the T-zone and while it feels barely-there, its effect is quite remarkable. Unlike regular powder, it doesn’t gather in pores and creases, but rather spreads undetectably over the skin taking shine down a few notches and setting the rest of your makeup in place.
The Star Quality
The shade range is worth a notable mention. So lightweight, a perfect colour match isn’t necessary, but you can choose from a range of skin-tinted hues, or go for the universal option of the completely translucent version. The pink shade, however, is the one that really makes skin sing, adding an ever-so-subtle rosy glow to the entire face. The dream.
