If you aren’t familiar or haven’t heard of the brand Mented Cosmetics, then you are missing out. The black-owned beauty brand started by KJ Miller and Amanda E. Johnson (both Harvard Law Graduates) both started Mented Cosmetics because they believed every woman should be able to find herself in the world of beauty. The cosmetic line started with perfect shades of nude lipsticks for darker skin tones and have since expanded into blushes foundation and now setting powders.
The new Skin Silk Loose Setting Powders are made to go along with the Skin Foundation stick. The powder is designed to smooth the skin, and control shine all day without a cakey finish. Skin Silk also includes skincare benefits such as vitamin c to help brighten the skin. The powder comes in three shades light/tan, med/deep and deep/rich.
I ordered the shade med/deep as I use it to set my entire face. The powder is very finely milled and doesn’t have a cakey finish. One of my favorite things about this powder is how lightweight it is. There is no downtime for waiting for it to look like your skin or set in the skin.
Compared to other powders on the market, this is the first one that I have tried that has skincare benefits. I recommend trying it if you are looking for new setting powder! Buy it on Mented Cosmetics for $25.
