For a long time now, I was wearing my makeup with a dewy finish. I used hydrating foundations and generally steered clear from any powder. But recently I started to notice that a lot of people were wearing their makeup in a matte way. They used a lot of loose setting powder to make their face look matte, and it got me wondering; should I be doing this as well?
So, I went online and looked for setting powder, and since it was my first shot at this product, I wasn’t going to start up by something from Makeup Forever or Laura Mercier. Therefore, I went and purchased the Coloressence HD powder and here is my review on that product.
This product is sold for INR 350.
The packaging of this product is a splitting image of the L’Oréal mineral foundation, the only difference being, this product looks a little cheaper. When you take off the cap, you find the brush applicator which is attached to a removable lid under which the original loose powder is.
What Shades are Available?
There are four shades available, but I would recommend that you go for the translucent color which is called “Snow White” unless you feel like you need some extra coverage over your foundation.
What It Claims to Do
If you are looking to get matte finish skin, then Coloressence High Definition Powder will be a mature choice. The powder stays for a long time on your skin, and it controls oil. You get smooth, even skin as powder gives complete coverage.
How It Performed and My Thoughts
When I first took off the lid of this product and saw the actual powder, my first impression was that it looked like chalk dust. However, I decided to look past it and applied a bit on the back of my hand, and it blended in really well, did not look drying or patchy, and did not leave any color behind either.
So, the next day I first applied it to set my under-eye concealer, and that was when I learned that although the powder is decent enough, the brush applicator isn’t. It is a bit too hard, and when you use it to put the product on, the brush ends up scarping off the makeup that is underneath. So, I would recommend that you use this powder either with a powder puff or with a fluffy powder brush. Also, when you have dipped your puff or brush into this product, make sure that you tap-off the excess otherwise it will look cakey on your face.
I was quite happy with this powder. The powder isn’t that finely milled, but it is good enough for the price. It does an excellent job at mattifying your face, and if you have oily skin that gets shiny when you put makeup on, then you should try this one out. It will set your makeup, and also get rid of the excess shine without getting too dry or cakey.
This powder will keep your face matte for around 4 hours. However, depending on your skin type, this may vary. Also, due to its convenient packaging, you can also carry this around with you and use it to touch up your makeup and get rid of any oiliness.
Pros and Cons
- Affordable price
- Gives the skin a nice matte look
- Blend easily
- Isn’t chalky or patchy on the skin
- Controls oil to an extent
- The brush applicator isn’t good
- You lose some product every time you open the container
- Too much can make you look cakey
I will rate this product a 4 out of 5. For the price, I think it did an excellent job. It mattifies the skin, controls oil for a right amount of time, and isn’t chalky or anything like that. For a person who is thinking of venturing into the world of loose powders, I will surely recommend this one for you.
