This is a super sheer, translucent mattifying powder, which literally says goodbye to shine in seconds. An oil-absorbing powder, which is suitable for all skin types and keeps make up put all day long, this really is a break through formula from Soap and Glory and has pride of place in my make up bag at the moment...
Soap and Glory call this powder Amazing, Addictive and Invincible and I couldn't think of a better triology to describe it. If you're looking for something a little more sturdy and with better staying power than Rimmel's Stay Matte, than this is your guy. Like all Soap and Glory products, the packaging is lovely. I think it has all the feel of 'Benefit' about it, minus the price tag! This, along with their bronzing and blush bricks, is really compact and offers a brilliant sized mirror and above-average powder puff. I do keep the powder puff in there, for a quick fix, however to achieve a more overall even finish, I will use a powder brush or kabuki to really set my make up as this gives more of a flawless 'loose powder' kind-a finish.
In terms of the formula, One Heck of a Blot is so impressive. This Summer, my skin seems to have had a bit of a wobbly and become somewhat oily, so it is sometimes a struggle to stop my make up from slipping throughout the day. However, this has very strong staying powder and I find myself taking it out of my handbag to reapply, then finding I don't actually need to. It has a smooth, velvety finish that doesn't crease or highlight dry patches and because it is finely milled, gives a lovely, flawless look. As well as this, it is so light so wear and because it is totally translucent, one shade suits all. It is simply amazing - does everything you want a setting powder to do and comes in at the really affordable price of £12.
