I’m a makeup minimalist, not because I have some grand ideas about looking natural, but because I’m unapologetically lazy in the mornings. I can barely wake up enough to get dressed for work, so an elaborate makeup routine is out of the question.
I always use three things - mascara, browcara, and powder. My most recent powder is Skin79 Super+ Pink BB Pact SPF30 PA++, available on Jolse and in their eBay store. It promises to keep oil at bay and improve the look of texture and discoloration (purely from the makeup perspective, not long term). The powder is made with allantoin, jojoba, and green tea. I wasn’t successful in locating a full list of ingredients.
How to use:
Apply at the end of your skincare / makeup routine
Use the included puff or your own makeup brush
I use this right after sunscreen (allowing a few minutes for the sunscreen to dry down first), and I prefer a brush vs the included puff for a more even and lighter coverage. One thing to note - even though this product is advertised as having SPF30, I’m not sure how much of it you’d need to apply to get that protection. Not to mention that SPF should go on the eyes, ears, neck, etc. I think it’s a nice potential bonus to cover some of the invisible “skip areas” missed by the base layer of sunscreen, but I would not rely on this as my only sun protection.
As far as I know, Skin79 Super+ Pink BB Pact only comes in one color. It works well enough for my fair skin, but if I wanted to build up coverage and hide more than just the sligh sheen of oil I sometimes get, I would need it to be lighter. Too many layers and it starts to look too dark / orange on me. But one coat is fine.
This is a pretty good powder and I will keep using it until it’s out. It’s not my Holy Grail product, mostly because the color isn’t a true match for me. I would have liked it to be a bit lighter / less orange, but as I said - it’s working ok in a single layer.
One dusting of the BB pact camouflages excessive oil and some of the skin imperfections, but they are definitely not completely hidden (which is actually fine by me - I prefer to show some of my blemishes vs have too much caked on the face; there are some real makeup pros who can hide anything without the face looking like a paint can spilled on it, but I’m not one of those people).
I love that the packaging has an extra plastic layer that separates the powder from the mirror and the puff - this eliminates having powder dust all over the mirror and I wish every compact did this.
Have you tried this powder? What did you think?
