Today I thought I'd share with you my thoughts on Shiseido's Translucent Loose Powder
It comes in a translucent violet tub, packaged in a shiny red box. According to Shiseido, this product is non-comedogenic and is dermatologist tested.
The powder puff that comes with it is pretty pale pink, with a red satin ribbon. This puff is the softest I have ever come across. Feels incredible to use!
I found the powder to be very fine. It contains very tiny particles of shimmer, which on the skin provides a nice radiant finish. It definately did the job of mattifying oily areas, and my skin has not been irritated by this product so far.
Here I am using this loose powder. It actually gave me more coverage than I expected from a loose powder. My face was a bit blotchy and red the day these pics were taken. With just the loose powder on top of moisturiser, it provided just enough coverage for the redness.
Overall, I'm very pleased with this powder. It absorbed oily areas of my skin, and provided a small amount of coverage. On top of foundation, it will give skin a flawless complexion. I especially liked how the powder wasn't too matt, and that it gave a nice radiant sheen. In addition, I didn't feel the need to reapply the powder during the day.
