Baby Powder as a setting powder?

So I ran out of my MAC Select Sheer Pressed Powder & Blot Powder. Therefore, I had nothing to set my foundation with. I had my Studio Fix Powder Plus..but that makes me break out a lil bit. Anyways, I looked up on Specktra to see what others use as a setting powder...but that was translucent and didn't cost so much. By the way I tried the MAC Prep + Prime Translucent Powder last week & I loveee it. I read that many used Baby Powder as a setting powder.

I used Studio Fix Fluid & my #129 brush to apply the baby powder. Very light application. I just used a soft kabuki brush to brush off the loose powder.

I did NOT get oily in my t-zone at all. I did not touch up at all.

Woke up the next day, no zit or irritations to the skin whatsoever. The only cons about it, is the scent. This is actually my son's baby powder LOL. If anything next time, I will buy the unscented one. I could care less about the packaging. I just pour some in my empty Bare Escentuals container.

Another product that I wished I knew about before!! I still love the MAC Select Sheer & Blot powders though. I would probably only use those for special outings/weekends.

Trying out MAC l/s in Lady Danger. It looks a lil smudge but it's my webcam being weird. My son like drooled over the webcam and I guess it got wet inside haha. So my pics are a lil blurry from that. Also my first time shading in my eyebrows with a pencil instead of eyeshadow. The eyebrow pencil is the dark brown by NYC.

Forgot to mention, that is the "Hollywood" lashes that Kim & Khloe Kardashian wears. My sister found out about through Khloe's blog. Not sure what the link is but I can find out and link you guys.
