At first glance, the two components in DuWop‘s Smoothset seemed to me like an odd couple. A colorless balm and a pressed powder… These work together? Are they really all I’m going to need? Despite my doubt, I’ll try anything involving a balm at least once, so I dug right in.
The balm is a unique way to start the makeup process. It works much like a primer, filling in lines and pores. It replaces shininess with an almost-matte glow, and it made my skin feel downright dreamy, probably because of its beeswax and vitamin E.
DuWop says you can follow up the balm with foundation, but I really wanted to put Smoothset to the test and use just what the compact provided. I used my favorite fluffy powder brush, and I spread the powder all over my face. I was half-expecting the balm to make the powder stick unevenly, but there wasn’t even a hint of blotchy cakiness. Instead, powder and balm worked together to create a silky-looking, fully-covering yet flawlessly natural finish.
I can’t think of any of compact combo like this, so until someone comes up with a way to improve upon it (doubtful), I’m sticking with Smoothset.
