Finally, A Powder for People Who Hate Setting Powders

Here’s what makes Airset so special: it reduces excess oil on the face, but has a radiant finish that compliments the highlighter and dewy foundation. What’s more, the powder is infused with hydrating squalane so it stays smooth and velvety all day. It comes in three flexible shades.

After applying makeup, gently press a bit of the powder on the T-zone with a flat brush to prevent excess shine. Use the powder on makeup-free skin, adding a bit to areas where you have discolouration, such as the under-eyes and chin. 

The packaging also deserves a call out. Aside from makeup flashback, some may have also avoided setting powders in the past because they’re messy and get everywhere. Airset has a little sifter with holes that allows you to pour a little bit up onto the cap and then close it when not in use.

While the early 2000s have inspired many of the current beauty trends, such as thin eyebrows, one that’s not coming back is the heavy, chalky setting powder. Thanks to formulas like Saie’s Airset Radiant Loose Setting Powder, we can reduce shine and radiate.
