Review: Kickass Instant Retouch Pressed Powder


Kickass Instant Retouch Pressed Powder

Kickass by Soap & Glory is my go to powder 90 percent of the time! It is an absolute necessity for my makeup kit. I go berserk when I replace or lose it. Sounds intense but that ‘s how strong our bond is <3

I discovered Kickass a couple of years ago when a beautician recommended it to me and I’ve been hooked ever since. It is a yellow based pressed powder that can be used for setting and retouching. The colour of the powder is a light lime yellow which I was slightly concerned about as I thought it will make me look like a ghost but luckily it doesn’t leave a light cast on the face. To me it is completely undetectable. I have used Kickass with different foundations and it goes with almost every formula. If you have yellow undertones then chances are that you will be using a yellow based setting powder as well. Should you decide to check out this one, I assure you that you will end up loving it as much as I do!  The texture of Kickass is very fine and that’s probably the only one con about this product; that you will notice a lot of fallout. However, the finish is so flawless that I find this is a minor drawback considering the end result. One suggestion I have is to exfoliate your skin before using this powder for a smoother application.

It is not a full coverage powder so it will not cover scarring, textured or uneven skin. So please bear in mind that for a full coverage you’ll have to apply extra foundation with this one. I personally use this powder with  Georgio Armani Luminous Silk foundation. Luminous silk is also a sheer coverage foundation, so this combo ends up giving me the ‘my-skin-but better’ look. I am a sucker for natural makeup that looks like your own skin in person and these two for me totally achieve that!!

Kickass is from a UK based brand called Soap & Glory. Their bath and body products are available in other countries however makeup items are only exclusive to the UK. Kickass sells like hot cakes at £12! Trust me, every time I’ve inquired about it it’s been out of stock so I usually buy them in bulk whenever I can.
