Your inside look at Avon’s first color correcting powder

When I first saw the advertisement for this new color correcting powder, it struck me that it was likely to be Avon’s most underrated makeup product launch of the entire year. Tucked in between festive holiday gift sets and whimsical trinkets on the catalog pages, this new VDL powerhouse looks basic and unassuming at first glance. However, makeup lovers will definitely want to take a second glance at this one!

As many of you know, Avon has been collaborating with the popular Korean brand VDL for several months now. This newest addition to Avon’s VDL line is perfect for folks looking for color correcting solutions. Why? Let’s take a look . . .

What is the VDL Lumilayer Color Correcting Powder?

The VDL Lumilayer Color Correcting Powder is a new 4-in-1 loose setting powder product by Avon & VDL that’s launching on Oct 28th, 2020. This product is designed for thorough color correcting with a touch of radiance from prismatic pearls.

Although this product is being advertised as a holiday gift, it is so much more than meets the eye! Like most VDL products, this powder brightens the skin with its unique Lumilayer technology – which creates a radiant look akin to glass skin.

Why a setting powder?

If you’re familiar with the world of color correcting, you’re probably aware that these products come in various forms including primers, concealers, pressed powders, and more. Avon itself has a line of color-correcting primers that are part of its collaboration with The Face Shop. So, are these competing products? Not exactly!

The different forms have different levels of pigmentation, depending on how intense or subtle you want the color shift to be. As a loose powder, the VDL Lumilayer Color Correcting Powder is on the more subtle side. As such, it is meant to be applied over your other makeup instead of underneath. This means it can actually help set your makeup, as well as provide the full impact of the Lumilayer prismatic pearls. I hope you’re ready to glow!

What shades are included in this 4-in-1 product?

The VDL Lumilayer Color Correcting Powder includes four different shades, which each serve a separate purpose. As always – different areas of your face may have different coloration and require different shades of the setting powder.
