Packaging: I know the packaging looks big and bulky but this is the best kind of packaging for loose powder. Loose powder in any packaging is gonna cause some mess but less mess is the best. Now this tub has the twist kind of lid which is fine, you can screw it slowly so there isn't powder everywhere. The lid is black with the shade no and other info on it. The bottom is transparent so you can see how much quantity is inside which is good. The tub is made of good quality plastic so its quite sturdy. It doesn't have a lot of weight to it either. Its too big to travel with but if you want you can. Inside it has holes through which the powder comes, which comes sealed so what I did is cut up only half the seal so I don't get a lot of powder out at once which works for me, you do you. Over all the packaging is good.
Formula: The powder is quite finely milled. Its super smooth in texture no chalky feeling whatsoever. There is a tint of color to the powder which gives it the coverage so you will have to buy it according to your skin tone. Infact the coverage is very good for a loose powder. It gives a natural matte finish and controls shine. Great for baking and setting your makeup. The powder is not cakey but don't use too much of it because then it can look heavy on the skin. The powder does help in making your pores look smaller and more smoother comparatively.
My Experience: I have two shades because I asked my bhabhi to get it for me from USA before it was launched here and she got me the shade 15 which is a little light for me. I used it but only under my eye which made my under eyes ashy sine the shade 15 has pink undertones. I lightly dusted it on my face with a stippling brush but too much of it made me look cakey so I did not use it a lot.
Then it launched in India and I had already liked the powder but wasn't happy with the color so I purchased the shade 25 which is a hair dark for me but works fine. I think I should have gone for shade 20 instead but I am not getting another tub of the same powder 😜. Shade 25 has golden undertone which works perfectly for me. I sometimes also mix shade 15 and 25 for my under eyes.
Shade 25 works fine for me I can use it under my eyes and also to set my whole face. I don't bake my under eyes since they can get drying but I do it when I want my under eye to look crease-less through the day or night and this powder is great for that. But be sure not to use a heavy full coverage concealer with this powder, it will look very cakey and drying since the powder has coverage on its own. I prefer using medium coverage or light coverage concealer.
This powder works great without any makeup either. So on days when I don't wanna do much still want a put together look. I use a face oil plus moisturizer and then use a powder brush and dust the powder all over. I use the oil because I have dry skin and just powder will make me look more dry. If you have oil skin you can use it by itself. Infact you can use it with a damp beauty sponge and it will work like a proper coverage compact and will keep you shine free upto 6 hours atleast. It keeps me shine free longer since only my nose is oily. This loose powder is gonna be my best friend in the summers. I obviously like this powder more then others I have tried or seen in the market. There are 4 shades available in India. Outside India there is another two or three shades more. But if you have Fair to light skin tone Shade 15 should definitely work for you and if you are somewhere between NC 42 to NC 47 in MAC shade 30 will mostly work for you.
You can buy it during sale time which will make the powder a little more affordable. One tub will lasts you a good amount of time.
