I bought this because of its packaging. Yeah, I can really be that shallow. 😜 First and foremost, I like color purple so that’s a big check. I also find the intricate silver design on the cover very interesting so I will pretty much reuse the container.
Probably the most expensive powder that I have, it’s worth Php 1500; bought it from a US-based online seller. So the question is, does it “de-slick and mattify” my face? For me, it’s not that consistent. Sometimes, it does. Sometimes, it doesn’t. Probably it’s not meant for a very humid weather like the Philippines. I tried applying it on top of a Maybelline pressed powder that was already on my face. It was not a good idea because it made my face cakey. I do not recommend applying another layer of it on your face especially on top of another powder because it really has the tendency to be cakey (though it is suggested on the packaging).
I read some reviews that it’s best to use a brush instead of the puff included on the product. I totally agree with that because the puff is quite flimsy and using a brush will spread the product more evenly. Even though it is translucent (best for all complexion), it is best to apply it thinly to avoid making it cakey (for the nth time).😜
Good side, I like the minty scent. It’s a bit relaxing.
So there you go, I like the packaging and its scent. But not a good buy for me for Php 1500.
