I got over my horror of loose, floury substances long enough to try out Juice Beauty’s Refining Finishing Powder. According to Juice Beauty’s website, it’s supposed to “refine and provides a beautiful matte coverage while feeding your skin with antioxidants” while the “organic aloe powder prevents any powder settling into creases”, It’s available in three colors, in order of ascending darkness: Ivory, Sand, and Tan.
