The Best Powder for You: Pressed vs. Loose

Face powder is an essential component of any complexion routine as it helps to set and preserve the longevity of foundation, control shine, and mattify the skin. With so many powders on the market, it can be overwhelming to choose the right one for your skin. In this blog post, we will compare two of Juvia’s Place’s powders – the I AM MAGIC Powder Foundation and the I AM MAGIC Loose Setting Powder – and help you choose the best one for you.


Although both products work exceptionally well to set foundations without a cakey finish, there are some differences between the two which may make one more ideal for you.


Consider your skin type

Before choosing a powder, it’s important to consider your skin type. If you have oily skin, the I AM MAGIC Powder Foundation is the better option. This powder is formulated with a unique powder blend that takes oil control to the next level. It eliminates shine and has a pore-vanishing effect that regulates oil production to keep you matte for longer.


On the other hand, if you have dry skin, the I AM MAGIC Loose Setting Powder may be the better choice. Its super lightweight, silky texture looks and feels like bare skin and works wonders for those with drier skin types.


Coverage Desired

The level of coverage you desire is another factor to consider when choosing a powder. The I AM MAGIC Powder Foundation delivers custom buildable coverage that can be worn alone or on top of makeup. The beauty of this power foundation’s smooth texture is that it can be worn on bare skin, or layered on top of foundation, to set it. It’s this texture that allows for seamless layering, should you wish to add more layers to create a fuller coverage look.

On the other hand, the I AM MAGIC Loose Setting Powder delivers lighter coverage that can also be applied to create a ‘baking’ effect that can enhance concealer and subtly highlight to make your contouring even more defined.

Set and Forget? Or Powder for On-the-Go?

If you’re looking for a powder that is convenient for touch-ups on-the-go, the I AM MAGIC Powder Foundation is a better option. The compact’s magnet lock, mirror, and sponge make it portable and travel-friendly. However, if you’re looking for a powder that is perfect for setting and forgetting, the I AM MAGIC Loose Setting Powder is the better option.

Brushes are Everything

When applied with a powder brush, both the I AM MAGIC Loose Setting Powder and I AM MAGIC Powder Foundation creates a natural airbrush effect that smooths the complexion. However, both powders can also be applied with a sponge for even more targeted application.

The I AM MAGIC 101 Tapered Powder brush is specially designed for precision and easy application of powders. It applies just the right amount of product to your t-zone and nose area for a professional finish of either powder.

To dial up the coverage of the I AM MAGIC Powder Foundation, consider applying the powder using the I Am Magic 102 Flat Top Foundation Brush instead. The densely packed bristles deliver the powder to the skin with a fuller coverage effect.

With a history of making best-selling brushes, we created both of these new brushes with the most premium, super-soft fibers that don’t leave steaks. The synthetic textures are non-shedding and incredibly easy to clean.
