This is a review for the Skinfood Peach Sake Silky Finish Powder.
This is (yet again) one of the recommendations I got for my Korea shopping list giveaway!
What it does: (according to the Skinfood Singapore site)
Contains ultra-fine micro-silica powder, which immediately tightens the pores and controls excess sebum. This unique loose powder sets your make-up with a matt finish, leaving skin smooth and clean.
Price: (I'm not sure, but probably less than 10000 Won, or $8)
- smells like peaches - fantastic!
- does a good job of making my face matte
- very finely milled
- the puff is very soft
- it's a WHITE powder. Blend it very well!!!
- the container is tall and takes up a lot of space.
While I really like this powder, I wouldn't use it on its own since it is white. I mix it in with my normal finishing powder so that I get the shine control benefit without looking pasty white.
But... where have I seen this powder before? The minute I touched it, I knew I had tried it before somewhere...
Here it is!!!
(from MUFE's website)
Or should I say, this?
I'm not surprised, since most powders that boast oil controlling properties contain silica.
MUFE HD powder = Brand name pure Silica
Coastal Scents Silica Powder Spheres = pure Silica from a website with bad customer service (in a container that leaks)
Skinfood Peach Sake Silky Finish Powder = Silica with a great smell
It's good to have options, isn't it?
