Becca Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powder Review & Swatch-
Hello my lovelies 🙂
I have been intrigued by this loose powder by Becca ever since it came out last year- every blogger raved about it saying it’s like a drink for your skin but still acts like a powder! What? I had to pick it up as soon as I ran out of my L’Oreal setting powder & it is true! It is a dream come true for dry/dehydrated skins ^_^ Read on to know more about this unique product!
What Becca Says-
An innovation in make up ‘setting’, BECCA’s Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powder is a two-in-one way of locking things into place and refreshing skin. Ultra-translucent, the weightless powder offers a silky smooth, invisible finish that feels comfortable and stops make up from straying. Formulated with 50% water and glycerine, the powder miraculously creates a mist-like sensation on your skin, meaning it’s perfect for keeping make up looking fresh all day without leaving the dry, chalky sensation of some setting powders. With light-reflecting particles, it also blurs away fine lines and imperfections – we couldn’t ask for much more!

My take on the Becca Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powder-
The packaging of the powder is gorgeous! The screw-on lid is silver, shiny & really doubles up as a mirror if you are out 😛 The plastic lid underneath keeps the loose powder in place which is dispensed through the mesh like opening. I wish they provided a puff for touch ups on the go but that is definitely asking for too much 😛 Overall, very user- friendly packaging which looks great & is easy to travel with.
The powder is pale peach in color (universal shade), very very fine & loosely milled & feels like a burst of water exactly as if I have sprayed a mist to set my makeup. It feels so strange at first, the strange cooling watery sensation which mattifies your skin without drying- I simply cannot explain if you don’t feel it for yourself.
Efficacy wise too, the powder is amazing! It keeps my makeup fresh, does not accentuate any dry patches or fine lines on my face & gives a soft, healthy finish which does not look/feel powdery at all. I have finally found a loose powder perfect for my dehydrated skin.
The powder is fragrance free & has not aggravated or broken out my sensitive skin ever.
Pros of the Becca Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powder:
1> Universal peachy shade which is not discernible to the eye.
2> Does not look/feel powdery.
3> Keeps skin looking fresh & soft all day long without drying it out.
4> Does not accentuate the dry patches on my skin or fine lines 🙂
5> Good quantity.
6> Performs excellently if used in baking as well.
7> Feels like a burst of cooling water on skin as if I have set my makeup with a mist.
