M.I.U. Professional Finishing Powder
Shade: 753 (Clear)
Made in Japan
Seeing as I have a number (read: a LOT) of foundations in vary degrees of my skintone, I decided to give translucent powder a shot just because I wanted to try something new. I had excellent results with the tinted M.I.U. Powder that I got before at Citysuper and I wanted to try out their translucent one to see if I would have similar feelings about it.
In general, my requirements for a loose powder would be that it a) sets my makeup and b) would be nice if it had moisturizing/hydrating properties. I knew that with the M.I.U. Powder that I got before, it was made up of 97% natural ingredients as well as having hyaluronic acid added in it for moisture retention; I’ve tried and tested that baby out and its claims run true: my skin didn’t look any drier when it was actually dry when I dusted it on, and my skin looked even better with it when it was relatively normal so to speak. As such, I made a beeline for Log-on and found the cute pot of loose powder for HKD148 and I happily went home with my purchase, proud of the fact that I didn’t splurge on a high-end brand for loose powder 😀
After test running it with my various pots and bottles of foundations, I have to say that once again, the price point doesn’t affect the quality of this product at all. It does its job right and the fact is that this translucent powder really did go on seamlessly without giving me a white-ish cast; this is a common effect for me with many brands of translucent powder, even if I went at it with a light hand. All in all, my makeup stayed put and it didn’t look heavier/cakier, and I noticed that it kept my skin shine-free without drying it out.
It may be cheap in price but it definitely doesn’t feel cheap on your skin <3
