Cyber colors – Zero pore powder – spf 27

Hey beauties,

I wanted a powder that controls shine and kept my face mattified with and without makeup. I was planning on picking Maybelline, Loreal or Revlon but the SA at Sasa said this powder is better than those brands. So I wanted to try this product before seeing the reviews in Internet(BIG MISTAKE). This product is only available in sasa, guess its their brand product.

Price: $24.90 SGD in SASA

Quantity: 8 g/ 0.27 oz

Plus:

  • Very fine powder, translucent finish
  • Makes skin matte when applied
  • Has SPF 27/PA++, hence very suitable for every day wear (by itself or on top of makeup) and suitable for outdoor
  • Makes pores less visible (I don’t have much open pores, but I can see a small difference)
  • Rich ingredients which can benefit skin’s health

Cyber colors zero pore UV cut powder review

Minus:

  • Doesn’t control shine after sometime
  • Does not control oil or anything else a powder is supposed to do
  • Heavy white caste in flash photos (More than when sunscreen with spf 40 or above is applied), may be because this is powder

Other Tips for this product:

  • Except for the SPF and minimal setting I see no use in this powder cause the oil control and pore refine seems to false claim.

Revlon Colorstay pressed powder Review

Hi

Usually I buy product only after seeing the review. But I was going for a vacation and wanted a compact which can be long wearing cause I may not be able to touch up. I just wanted it to control shine in my face for the photos. So this product came into my life.

Revlon Colorstay Pressed powder – Medium

Price:  $30 (SGD) Indian conversion should be somewhere between Rs.1400-1500/-

Minus:

  • Shine is not controlled as soon as you start to sweat, and I sweat very little
  • Not suitable for oily skin(Mine is not oily but it gets shiny even in my skin)
  • Doesn’t look natural if over applied. Doesn’t do the job if applied sparingly
  • Over priced for the quality in my opinion

Other Tips for this product:

  • You will have to wash the sponge every now and then cause it becomes tacky over usage
  • If applied with brush the look tends to be better.
  • 16 hours is too much of a claim for that one factor I am very disappointed. (I will even look past the over pricing)
  • This doesn’t appear cakey but its very obvious

About me repurchasing?No. This is a decent average performing powder compact but not the best.

Etude house – Fresh cherry tint Red review

Etude house – Fresh cherry lip tint review

Etude house is highly raved brand by Korean beauty bloggers as far as I have noticed. And the shop I visited was had quite interesting product too. The tint are also said to be a dupe for Benifit’s lip tint and some even prefer this over Benitint which I don’t own. I just wanted to try a lip tint product for vacation cause to spend time having fun was more important than reapplying lip color at the same time you have look good in photos.

Cost: $18 (SGD)

Quantity: 9 g

Neutrogena ultra sheer dry touch sunblock spf 50+ review

Hey beauties,

The importance of Sunscreen needs no explanation, as a side effect of we all using technology too much, we humans have lost ozone protection and now need protection directly in skin to avoid issues starting from sunburn to all other skin problems.

Hi girls,

Other Tips for this product:

  • Lavender oil is known for its goodness. But its also known for irritating skin when exposed to direct sunlight. Can intensify the damage by sun so skip day time

About me repurchasing?: May be. I have not decided.
