The picture on the website of this lucent face powder was so beautiful that I just had to get it. It is a peachy pink that looks like it would bring a lovely flush to the face. In addition, it is a lucent face powder, so it would be more sheer and natural, making it a good option to those who are looking for a “no makeup” look, or perhaps for students who are looking to keep it natural.
The powder comes in the traditional closeable sifter jars for full-size face powders. It contains 5.5g of product for $8, which is pretty decent I think. The jar itself is rather shallow, but allows for a larger surface area for buffing. It is an interesting idea, and I actually like it. The jars are very aesthetically attractive, as well as utilitarian. The closeable sifters are excellent. I recently traveled with this product, and it would have been an absolute pain without the closeable sifter.
Regarding the actual product, the color was a little paler than expected, but this was not really a big deal. It is mostly true to the picture online. However, the powder was a lot sheerer than I had expected, which is okay if you are looking strictly for a lucent face powder, but I had simply wanted it more as a sheer blush. So a word of warning for those who are looking at this product, it comes out a sheer, pale peachy pink. Thus, if you have darker skill, or even medium tan skin, I would probably shy away from this product. It will probably not show up. I have light skin, but it is most definitely not “fair.” The powder does not show up as well as I would like, but I think for paler people it would be very beautiful.
The color is lovely, but seems to be very glittery. Especially because I need to layer it on in order to make the color show through, the powder can become very glittery, though it doesn’t seem very apparent when looking at your face after application, only up close, during application. It is a more subtle glitter that seems to add more glow to your face than gaudy glitter.
Overall, I like this to give a light flush to my cheeks, though I think using it as a “face powder” may be a bit strange; it is probably too pink to be a face powder. While this product suits light skin tones superbly, I would not recommend it for those who have darker skin tones.
