Have used for almost a year now and will continue to use. Like the light coverage and feel of the powder as well as some of the makeup used.

Ascorbyl Palmitate (Vitamin C)
Ascorbyl palmitate is a stable form of vitamin C that has similar vitamin C activity to ascorbic acid. Vitamin C is an important antioxidant vitamin that is essential for maintaining your skin’s natural collagen. By supporting your skin’s natural collagen, vitamin C helps your skin achieve a firmer, suppler and more youthful glow.

Ethylhexyl Palmitate
Ethylhexyl palmitate is produced from palmitic acid, a naturally-occurring fatty acid found in plants and animals. It acts as a lubricant on the skin’s surface, giving the skin a soft and smooth appearance.

Lonicera caprifolium (Honeysuckle) and Lonicera japonica (Japanese Honeysuckle) Flower Extracts
Honeysuckle flower extracts are rich in saponins and flavonoids, especially luteolin. These natural, plant-derived ingredients have antioxidant properties that might help protect and soothe the skin.

Populus tremuloides (Aspen) Bark Extract
Aspen bark extracts are used in cosmetic products as a natural preservative.


What is the purpose of using a translucent powder?
Translucent powders are the perfect product for anyone who wants a sheer setting powder. Setting powders can be used to help neutralize oil, cover small imperfections and set liquid foundation for all day wear. You can use this product with or without other makeup to achieve a flawless finish.

How many shades does Motives Luminous Translucent Pressed Powder come in?
Motives Luminous Translucent Pressed Powder comes in two shades: Light/Medium and Dark.

Who should use Motives Luminous Translucent Pressed Powder?
Motives Luminous Translucent Pressed Powder can be used by all who want to set their foundation and achieve a matte finish throughout the day. It is also helpful to those with oily skin, as it helps neutralize the oil to reduce shine.

What is the difference between pressed and loose translucent powder?
Motives Luminous Translucent Pressed Powder is formulated to support collagen and protect the skin, enhancing its smooth appearance. It can be worn atop foundation as a setting powder or alone, as it offers more coverage than a loose powder. Motives Luminous Translucent Loose Powder contains vitamin C to support collagen in the skin and mica to reflect light away from imperfections. It should be worn as a setting powder over foundation, as it offers little coverage.

Will Motives Luminous Translucent Pressed Powder irritate sensitive skin?
No, Motives Luminous Translucent Pressed Powder utilizes vitamins and extracts to protect and soothe skin, while supporting its normal functions, making it perfect for use by all skin types.
