GRWM Cosmetics Velvet Setting Powder Review Swatches

GRWM Cosmetics Velvet Setting Powder Review is finally here! Not a fan of powders lately because we are currently enjoying colder weather and so I'm usually wearing dewy finish skin products but I have picked up working out again and so must find a powder that I can wear while exercising while giving me enough coverage and yes, this powder from GRWM Cosmetics does deliver!

You can buy this directly from the official store of GRWM Cosmetics HERE or buy in Lazada HERE and if you are lucky, it will be discounted too!

GRWM Cosmetics Velvet Setting Powder Review Swatches 

What is the GRWM Cosmetics Velvet Setting Powder?

 It may be used alone to level out the skin tone or as a setting powder to offer a little more coverage to sheerer liquid bases. GRWM Cosmetics Velvet Setting Powder is a for-all-skin-types powder with light to medium coverage. Squalane, Kaoline, and Calamine are ingredients in the vegan formula that calm, hydrate, and mattify the skin. It is available in several shades so, wow!

By the way, I only have the 3 shades for fair skin, Buff, Linen, and Shell. They differ in their undertones. 

Price: 549 pesos per 10 grams 

Where to buy: You can buy in Shopee HERE or Lazada HERE if you want to avail of brand promos. The brand doesn't have a physical store as of now but maybe soon!

I love the top part of the packaging. The bottom part, unfortunately, is a magnet for smudges.

I'm a sucker for details and like that the expiration is clearly marked. 

Here are the swatches of the lightest shades for fair skin. As you can see, they made sure to cater to various undertones. 

GRWM Cosmetics Velvet Setting Powder Review Summary

The claims are real:

Coverage can range from sheer to high medium, and I am glad that it is definitely buildable. I achieved high medium coverage when I layered on top of tinted moisturizer and also when I used a layer of wet application on top of powder form. The product looks even better at the 3-6 hour mark. Can get a bit cakey if you forget to blot before reapplication so be sure to blot. In my case, blotting is often enough to not need a new layer. 

My other thoughts and observations:

  • I wish they offer refills. Packaging is so nice and its a pity having to throw it away huhu
  • The powder is truly smooth and can blur out pores/skin. 
  • No strong scents. Thank you GRWM Cosmetics!
  • Love that this is paraben-free, vegan, and cruelty-free.
  • Can last 3-5 hours before seeing visible oil on oily skin.

Here is a comparison of right side with powder and left side without. LINEN is a perfect match for me, yay!

Below is 3 hours after application, Stil looking fresh after blotting. 

Final verdict (MARCH 2023)

It is challenging to rate powders in my opinion because it has to be worn under very different settings to truly gauge their prowess. I say my current rate is 4/5 because I really like the velvety finish this powder gives me. Oil control is also decent even during hot months. I will probably update this around May 2023 for when summer is truly back!

Price: 549 pesos per 10 grams 

Where to buy: You can buy in Shopee HERE or Lazada HERE (with discounts) if you want to avail of brand promos. The brand doesn't have a physical store as of now but maybe soon!
