It was an intriguing thought, so I decided to run a little experiment to see if I could dupe the makeup malfunction 😀 My silica powder is contained in the Laura Mercier Secret Concealing powder thingy which I will review a little further on. I picked this up due to the hype and hey! It contains silica, among others.
So, what I did was pile on the silica powder and then take a picture with and without flash. You can see the results below. Careful – large pics ahead!
