Buy or NAH? Sacha Buttercup Setting Powder

Sacha Buttercup Setting PowderSacha Buttercup Setting Powder is said to be completely flash-friendly. It has superior oil-absorbency and is so finely milled that it fills in fine lines and pores, leaving a smooth, matte, flawless finish. It comes in one shade for all skin tones. According to their website: Sacha Cosmetics is manufactured in Trinidad and Tobago! Since the island has people of every possible complexion, they want to make sure that all women of color never look chalky or ashy in bright lighting or photos.

Lord forgive me…..But I don’t think ya’ll understand how much I cringe when I see photos of women who look like they set their highlight with powdered sugar.

I’m regularly a user of Ben Nye’s Banana Powder, but I recently stopped using it because my concealer started to crease underneath my eyes and exaggerated my fine lines. I was very intrigued when I heard about Sacha’s Buttercup Setting Powder because crow’s feet ain’t the bee’s knees.. :t: peep the photos and my full review on the setting powder below!

Free lipstick in shade ‘Over the Taupe’ on all purchases! Of course I swatched it for you all to see 🙂

Sacha 'Over the Taupe' lipstick


This stuff is pretty nice! I dig it. I can understand why a lot of people would prefer this than the Ben Nye banana powder. The Sacha Buttercup Settinh powder is so refined in texture and glides on like a charm. My concealer isn’t look cakey nor did it settle into my fine lines. I looked SUPER polished with this stuff on! Lol. Chilllllld I’m talking SCULPTED. The claims to the ‘no flash back’ is true! I don’t have to use half as much as I do the Ben Nye. Definitely BUY.

I can’t wait to try their Kamouflage Foundation Palette….definitely have my eyes on it for my kit!

    Thanks for reviewing this! Im actually new to make up (concealer, setting powder, etc) Which concealer do you use?? and do you have a review of the concealer?

    • Hi doll! Right now I use Nars Creamy Concealer in Shade Caramel! + Kevyn Aucoin’s Sensual Skin Enhancer in SX16 to contour! 🙂 Sorry for the late reply!

    You look stunning! I had been using MAC Mineralise Natural Skin Finish in Dark to set my makeup but I’ve finished it (yeah!) so I’ve moved onto Sleek Pressed Powder in Tropical Bronze. I really have far too many powders (pressed and loose) but you’re review is getting me seriously thinking about trying some Sacha 🙂

    • I SWEAR by the Sacha! I also dust off some mineralized skin finished on top for a natural look.
