I love my fawless peachy complexion
on 11 January 2016
A lovely neat little compact in sturdy clear plastic. There are two compartments, both snap open easily (no broken fingernails and lost tempers). The top compartment holds a cake of pressed powder, the lower opens to reveal a mirror and a small applicator pad. It lacks the beauty and elegance of old-style compacts but is very much neater for carrying about, more practical and a lot cheaper too.
The powder itself is very nice indeed. It looks rather dark and I thought it would be completely the wrong shade (I usually use an ivory or pale beige) but it is so delicately translucent that it goes on much paler than it looks, giving a barely-perceptible peach blush to my rather pale skin. It's quite a translucent powder; definitely a finishing powder (it won't cover blemishes, freckles or the like as a heavier powder will). It shades imperceptibly on to the skin, smoothing pores, giving a fine, perfect finish. I have used it over foundation, when it gave a lovely soft, peachy, downy finish to my skin. I have also used it on it's own, on bare skin, and it just smoothed my complexion, hiding pores and giving a nicely 'finished' look with the barest hint of colour; perfect for a quick nip round the shops when I couldn't be bothered to 'put a face on'.
In short, I think this is a really lovely, light powder. It doesn't cover; it's not a replacement for a foundation, but gives a whisper-light finish for a perfect complexion, and is just the thing on it's own for a quick fix-me-up in a hurry. I'm very pleased with it indeed.
