Review: NYC Smooth Skin BB Radiance Perfecting Powder

Good morning!
Today I will be doing a quick review on this NYC perfecting powder.


$3.99 for 0.33 oz of product.


In one quick and easy step, get a perfectly real look. SO New York! This long-lasting formula covers imperfections and evens skin tone, acting as a second skin with a velvety, matte finish.

Improves the appearance of your skin and evens skin tone.  Smoothes fine lines and minimizes the appearance of pores.  Its lightweight and long lasting formula mattifies and covers imperfections for a perfect velvet finish.  For all skin types.  Dermatologist tested.

This is available in two shades: naturally beige & warm beige


I purchased this is naturally beige. It looks like the powders run darker so keep that in mind.  I’ll admit-I wasn’t expecting a whole lot out of this product.  I was really surprised by how much I ended up loving it!  It’s a finely milled powder that is so smooth.  It did get a little powdery when I pressed my brush into the product, but that didn’t translate onto my face.

It gave such a beautiful natural coverage while covering up shine and setting my makeup.  If you’re expecting a completely matte finish I wouldn’t recommend this product.  But if you want a natural finish then this is great.

It didn’t cake up or sink into my fine lines.  It is a more sheer finish so I wouldn’t recommend using this as a powder foundation.  I wore this both over bb cream and another time over foundation and it looked amazing with both.

I did get shiny around the 3-4 hour mark and had to re-apply powder.  This definitely won’t keep you looking matte all day.  But when I re-applied the product I was back to looking great.  It didn’t cake up and still looked very natural.

Allergic Reactions:

I didn’t experience any breakouts or allergic reactions to this product.

Overall Thoughts:

I am pleasantly surprised!  I really love this product.  My go to powder has been Rimmel’s stay matte.  The only downfall for me is that it does look a little cakey and powdery without a setting spray.  But it does keep me looking shine free all day.  I think this NYC powder is perfect for the Spring and Summer when you are going for a more natural looking finish.  I would recommend giving it a try!

Have a beautiful day!

xoxo Lizzie
