What makes this setting powder so awesome
A setting powder is the finishing touch to a perfect makeup application (like the cherry on top of an ice cream sundae!). Batty’s setting powder is not only like the cherry on top, but the chocolate sprinkles too! Here’s why: it doesn’t just “set” your foundation (so it doesn’t budge or slide off mid-day), it helps prevent the reason most of us feel like our makeup needs a touch up before the day is out - excess oil! Batty’s setting powder helps absorb excess oil. And instead of needing to redo your foundation mid-day, especially if you have extra oily skin, just another quick layer or two of Batty’s setting powder will keep your coverage in place and lasting for as long as you need it to!
And the best part is Batty’s setting powder is super light weight, has a silky (but not greasy or gross) feel, and goes on completely sheer! So no matter what shade of foundation you wear, Batty’s setting powder will blend in seamlessly!
Batty’s setting powder can also be worn over tinted moisturizers or simply on makeup free days to help control oil!

In a nutshell:
- absorbs excess oil
- is completely translucent
- extends the life of foundation
- creates a silky feel and look to skin
- provides a matte finish
- contains zinc which is a natural sun blocking ingredient
How to use Batty’s Oil Absorbing Setting Powder
: If you're planning on wearing foundation, eye shadow, etc, apply all of that first.
: Using a kabuki brush, dip the brush into the setting powder
: Tap off excess back into the jar (simply tap the brush once or twice over the jar) or if you’re planning on putting on more than a thin layer of powder on your face, tap off this excess into the inside of the setting powder jar lid.
: Next, dab the brush (with setting powder on it) on the inside of the lid of the setting powder jar
: Swirl the brush around (this “loads the brush” - in other words, deposits the power throughout the brush for an even application
: Once the brush is “loaded”, gently swirl the brush over your face.
: Continue until you’ve covered your whole face and repeat if you want an extra layer of oil absorbing powder. (Or, if you only get oily in your T zone or the sides of your nose, you can skip the rest of your face and just apply the powder to these oil prone areas).
: Repeat throughout the day as needed

I liked the powder very much and it worked well but I lost most of it a week in. The open top is a hazard for clumsy people like me. But as always, great product from Batty!
This product is absolutely amazing!!!! After applying it, everything just falls into place (and stays that way too!!!) My face has a tendency to get embarrassingly oily (especially in the summertime) That's a thing of the past once this is applied :) It also gives that finishing touch when you're concealing imperfections. Even after I put on concealer, I sometimes still get a hint of an imperfection (particularly pimples) but a quick dust of this...TOTALLY GONE!!!! I actually only read just now that you can also use this without any foundation, which is great for me because I really only put foundation on for special occasions. Am definitely trying that out asap!! All these things combined as well as the fact that it acts as a natural sun block (kind of a sunphobe here) makes this a HUGE answer to a lot of my facial issues. Can't wait to buy it in full size!!!
I've been using this product for about a week now and I absolutely love it. I just dust a little on when I am finished my makeup in the morning and my skin goes all day at work without looking oily. I just absolutely love it!
