dpHUE x Kristin Cavallari Brightening Powder

This powder works like a magnet to pull out impurities like chlorine, minerals, and metals that are making your hair color look dry and dull.

The Eaze Drop Blurring Skin Tint offers light to medium coverage with a skin-blurring and smoothing effect. Find your match in one of the 25 shades.
