Shanny (@shannywears) tests out the powder in Sheer Lavender for maximum brightness, and admires the milky finish produced by the powder.

However, the powder does contain a slight shimmer, which gives the skin a glowy sheen, but may not be the best option for those who prefer a matte finish. She also notes that the powder is more suitable for fairer skin tones, as the shade range is limited.
