I got this product in my last prize winning contest I blog about last year. I heard good reviews about this powder and some of them said that this is a dupe for the famous MAC Minirelize Skinfinish. I never tried that MAC Minirelize Skinfinish so I can't compare. First let me take... no. let me talk about the packaging. This comes in a plastic case with 2 side of opening. One is for the sponge + mirror they provide and one is the product it self. I love the sponge, it is easy to clean and it is super soft. This powder does not have any weird scent or fragrance in it. Texture wise, fine and buttery smooth. Does not cause any mess and the powder does not feels heavy at all. For the first 3 months of using it I wore it on top of my different foundation and bb creams that I use daily. What I can see is that is serve just like other powder I tried. Matte but not heavy, but reapplication of touch up is needed after a few hours. Nothing special. After a few months, I have change my mood on wearing makeup. During the "stress day" I went through last few months due to work, I feel like I don't want to wear liquid foundation. So I tried using concealer for my spots and under eye and just top of with this powder. Result. Love it. I find that this powder works well alone.
Maybe because of the powder it self can also help give that nice coverage and if it is wore together with a liquid foundation, it becomes slippery or a little more heavy. This powder also matches my skin tone so well, to what they claim that is Super Bendable is totally true. Its kinda melts into my skin nicely and gives me this natural coverage to my face. Still, concealer is needed for that spots and dark eye coverage, then this powders is suggest to be apply all over you face with padding motion over the concealer. My skin looks so fresh and neat. I super recommend this powder for daily use for that natural makeup look. I suggest use a powder brush if you want to apply over liquid foundation to help gives you more fine application to avoid heavy coverage that may cause patchy and uneven skin tone color. This comes in 3 different shades if I am not mistaken. The down side of this powder is that I really find hard time to touch up my makeup because the mirror is on the bottom part, you kinda need to close and open up the compact to reach back the product and look back at the mirror. Pretty inconvenience to my opinion. Oh it rhymes.
Have you tried this powder foundation?
