It may look like a wheel of fortune, but in fact no luck is required with this winning powder from Smashbox; just a bushy brush for swirling the segments together and for applying the powder to the face and/or décolletage. Fusion Soft Lights in Baked Starblush (£25) is its name; adding just the right amount of soft-focus illumination all over the complexion is its aim – as described by its creators at Smashbox Cosmetics.
My first impression of the shades of silky pearlescent powder was that they look quite pink and blusher-like in the palette, but I was very taken with the results: once the six shades have been smooshed together and brushed over the cheeks and forehead, they add subtle warmth and noticeable radiance to the face – as well as absorbing shine and catching the light.
Not only is this an extremely flattering, all-over face powder; its components can be used individually on the face and the eyelids. Its place is booked in my winter make-up bag!
