It’s Day #3 of Sugar Week and I’m here with a product I whole-heartedly love.
THE BACKSTORY: As far as powders go, my hardcore ride-or-die was the Innisfree No Sebum Powder. For the longest time. One day, I decided to try this out. I haven’t used my Innisfree one since.
THE PRODUCT: First up, I do like how this blush is packaged. The square compact, albeit a little bulky, is hefty and surprisingly travel-friendly. On top of the sifter sits a square puff, which is important when you attempt to travel with it or keep it in your bag for touch-ups. The puff keeps the powder pushed down and it doesn’t blow up in your face whenever you try to use it. Also, surprise, surprise, there’s a mirror in the compact.
The powder is finely-milled, light and blends in with the skin effortlessly, without leaving a white cast or making your face look ashy. I also find that it helps in minimising the look of pores. It’s also scentless, which I truly do appreciate.
It does a good job setting the face and keeping it shine-free. It, like most other makeup products in existence, doesn’t perform too well in extreme humid weather. Under normal circumstances, it holds up for a decent amount of time (normal being situations where you stay inside a room and not under the blazing sun).
I also like how this powder doesn’t try to drink up all the moisture in your face and leave it looking and feeling dry.
Back when I still had classes to attend (I’ve graduated now, woot), I used to use this powder on a regular basis. I used to slather my sunscreen on and I didn’t like how greasy it would feel afterwards. Especially during warmer days. So, I used to douse myself in a generous amount of this powder to mattify the face a little.
SWATCH: In the photos above, you can see how the puff dispenses the product. Also, do you see how smooth my skin looks?
PRICE AND QUANTITY: 599 INR for 7 grams of product.
♥ OVERALL: I do really like this translucent powder. For the price, it’s the best option available at the moment.
