Sexy Mama Translucent Powder

I am always looking for the perfect face powder.  I am a traditional gal in that I like to use liquid foundation and finish off with a dusting of powder to set my make up.  It always seems to be a struggle to find a chemical free powder because mineral foundations are the current trend.  This means translucent powders are no longer required when you use these types of foundations.  In a bid to find a powder with fewer chemicals I discovered theBalm Sexy Mama Translucent Powder which is free from Parabens, Sulfates, Synthetic Fragrances, Synthetic Dyes and Phthalates.

I confess I was attracted by the packaging.  I adore the design and it reminds me of Benefit.  The price is less favourable you need to shop around as this product retails for £10 - £15.  Also you do not get much product for the price 7.08g

Here is what theBalm say about their product - Powder your face without a trace. This sexy formula with revolutionary, tiny oil-absorbing spheres removes dreaded shine leaving you with a soft matter finish.  But wait, there is more. Sexy Mama has powers like no other powder, its virtually invisible - fooling even the most attentive admirer.

When I first received the powder I was a little worried about the colour on my pale skin but fear not it really is a neutral/translucent shade.  I feel I get an 'air brushed photo ready' finish.  It is silky and feather light and seems to last the entire day.  I do not have oily skin but it does help with shiny skin when I get some perspiration.

Overall I really like this product it does what I require and the colour is perfect for my skin tone, however,  I probably would not re-purchase due to the price and size.

Has anyone else tried theBalm products? What did you think? If anyone has a face powder recommendation I would love to hear about it.
