Cons
This doesn’t help as much as I thought it would. It’s a good way to set makeup. It gives a nice, soft finish. However, it’s no match for my oily skin. I look shiny in about an hour. I don’t usually reapply it because I don’t want to make the powder dirty with bacteria.

I usually need to use oil sheets to soak up the shine afterward.

Pros
This has cute packaging. It comes with a nice pad to apply it. Although I bought a new pad so I could have a clean one. There’s also a pretty design etched into the powder pact. All of this is superficial though.

It does give a nice finish and helps set makeup.

You only need a light layer.

It doesn’t look cakey, feel thick or give a white cast (as long as you use a light amount).

I give this 3.5/5 stars.

Candy Doll: Mineral Powder (01, matte)

28 Mar

This product seemed to get a lot of hype, so I gave it a try! The puff it came with isn’t really a puff but more of a velvety pad.

Cons
This doesn’t give any coverage at all. Not bad if you’re just looking for a setting powder, like I was.

It claims to reduce the size of enlarged pores — this is a lie! At least it was for me and my large pores.

Pros
First of all, I like the packaging ^^ I don’t think some people do, but I like the black and purple with stripes.

It feels really, really soft and velvety, and it doesn’t smell like anything to me, which might be a plus. Not that I should touch my face, but when I put it on it makes my skin feel so soft and velvety too.

I feel like it matches most skin types, because, although the powder is beige, it goes on very translucent without looking pasty. The powder helps maintain oil control too.

Overall, if you want a powder that doesn’t look like put anything on and just want something to set makeup, this is for you.

Here I am with the Candy Doll Mineral Powder over my Missha Perfect Cover B.B. Cream (No. 23). You can still see my large pores -,_-

I give this four out of four stars.
