Re: Joan Rivers great hair day powder

[ Edited ]

Just a little while ago I tried mine for about the 100th time by many methods and different brushes and think I finally hit on a brush that lays it down nicely. The brush is years & years old and it's a Laura Geller Retractable Baked Powder Brush so it must have come with one of her baked products. I didn't let it come out of the sleeve all the way, probably only 1/4 of an inch or a little wee bit more. It's so old I don't know if she even still makes this particular brush think I'll have a look here and on her website, if she has one.


AHA I FOUND IT. It's item # A181677 and only $15.00 if anyone who uses the JR Hair product is interested in trying it.

Re: Joan Rivers great hair day powder



It arrived Saturday and I used it just on my part yesterday. It looked nice but I have very fine hair and it really weighed my hair down. Made it very flat. I hope if I'm more careful to use way less next time it will help that.Otherwise back it goes.

In my opinion Madison Reed is so much better at coloring gray and wide parts.  I also just discovered Bumble and Bumble spray color and it works great.
