I know, I know. From the looks of the opening photograph, it seems as if I really don’t care about this product enough to take some decent photos. The truth is… I really like this product. Do I like it as much as I like its holier-than-thou predecessor? Read on, read on.
THE BACKSTORY: If you scroll through my blog, one thing you’ll notice right away is my love for the Innisfree No Sebum powder. The original one. The one in the soothing mint-coloured tub. My affection for it was second to none. Until recently. I’ve fallen for its successor too. Do I like it as much as I like the OG superstar? Read on, read on.
THE PRODUCT: Unlike the original No Sebum powder, this one isn’t white/translucent. It’s got a very light beige tinge to it, which makes me wonder if it’ll work as an all-over setting powder for different skin tones.
That being said, it’s a very good powder. It is very finely milled and it blends in with the skin effortlessly, without leaving a white cast or making your face look ashy. It’s got a (familiar) herbal scent to it, which I don’t mind as it is quite weak. It sets makeup well and keeps the face matte for a decent amount of time
(unless you’re boiling away in a classroom with no electricity – that’s a whole new story). The finish is satin-matte as opposed to a very flat-matte.
So, the most impressive factor about this powder is that it blurs out pores and other little imperfections on the face. I find that it leaves the face looking a lot smoother and more even.
I use a powder/buffing brush with this most of the time but I occasionally use the provided powder-puff too.
As usual, I think the quantity is laughable. But for the price, I do understand why we only get 5 grams of product. I also happen to have some news – there’s going to be a jumbo sized version of this powder out soon. Maybe next time, I’ll just buy the bigger tub. Problem solved. Thanks, Innisfree.
*I think I’ll be writing a post comparing the Original version to this one next. I hope you check that out as well.
PRICE AND QUANTITY: $7 – $15 (depending on where you buy it from) for 5 grams of product.
♥ Overall, I think Innisfree makes some really great powders. I wonder who’ll win in a battle post. Like I said, my next post will likely be a comparison of the two powders. I hope you check it out!
