Julep Insta-Filter Invisible Finishing Powder
product thumbnail

Translucent and universally flattering, Julep Insta-Filter Invisible Finishing Powder transforms into a soft-focus HD finish. Use over bare skin or makeup to blur the appearance of pores, fine lines, and imperfections, while instantly mattifying.

How do I use it: Lightly press into bare skin or over makeup with velvet side of sponge. Powder will "melt" into skin, leaving an invisible soft-focus finish. Use reverse side of sponge to blot for touch-ups.

From Julep.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just kind of meh... This seems kind of flat. I guess I don't really have issues with shine in the first place so maybe it's just not necessary for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A MUST! Great matte coverage to lessen pores leaving a velvety smooth skin appearance. Great added final step in my make up routine! Glad I purchased and will again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my RIDE OR DIE product It took me nearly one whole compact to be convinced, but this is one of those powders I will NEVER let myself run out of now. One application in the morning controls my combination skin for the entire work day and leaves it looking FLAWLESS (at least in the oil department). By itself, it gives a soft, almost airbrushed finish. On top of foundation it smooths and mattifies your whole look. There's no scent, and a light application will melt into your skin without leaving residue. TO NOTE, however - if you have dry skin all over or in places, it will accentuate your dry spots. I've had some luck with applying a very light layer of lotion, waiting for it to sink in some, then powdering over it. If you have very oily skin you may need 2+ applications over the course of the day - the powder doesn't wear off, but it can only absorb so much. I would only stack 2 light applications before starting from a clean slate, but you do you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps you matte all day, no caking or breakouts This works perfectly with my foundation, which is just a shade too intense for my personal taste. This lightens up the foundation very slightly and adds a nice blur to the whole shebang. Way better than other finishing powders I've used. I'm not terribly prone to breakouts but I didn't have any issues after this. Also didn't experience the caking issue others have reported with this and other finishing powders. I've applied a very light layer with a round brush and just used the included sponge, the round brush appears to apply it more lightly and evenly but the sponge worked fine too.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't work well with other julep products First, this stuff washes out my olive skin and creates a ghostly cool toned hue. I wear the julep milk and the 5 in 1 cushion concealer and put the powder on top to set under the eyes. The surface of the compact has a hardened film over the top and can't access the powder. Tried using scotch tape to remove the film and even scratched the top off with a clean spoolie and scraped half the powder into my sink. And with julep's lack of return policy, I'm scared to try another product with them and get stuck with another bad purchase. The 5 in 1 cushion thing is fantastic though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Photographs well! I bought this maybe 2 months ago. I use it to set my makeup. It makes my skin look less oily and makes it look great when I take pictures. I love this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This powder is a combination of all of the other translucent powders and soft-focus blurring powders that I have used. It does everything it says it does. It creates a soft-focus to the skin by blurring pores and fine lines while also keeping oil and shine at bay. It truly sets your makeup for the entire day. I do wish there were replacement sponges made available though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does Exactly What It Says! I have huge pores and this really does make them look smaller. It keeps me from getting greasy, I usually have more grease than gas station pizza by about 1 pm. You do have to make sure you you don't use too much because it can leave a white residue.
