I’m back from my summer English course, which was so amazing that I won’t attempt to describe it in this space. I missed all of you, and I’m still catching up on commenting and reading right now, so bear with me. It feels good to be home, but I’m leaving for Taiwan on Wednesday (I’ll be taking my laptop with me, though, so the posts will keep coming from now on).
Something very exciting happened while I was gone
I HIT PAN!
Ooooh yeah. This is the first time I’ve hit pan on a powder in my life. I remember writing a mini review on this stuff once, but I thought I’d do a longer one today.
This is one of my uncontested HG’s that is incredible to the point that the minor flaws don’t even matter. It gives me an incredibly natural soft-focus look. No, it does not control shine all day long, but I’d say it lasts a good 3-5 hours depending on how much you usually…shine :D
The powder is very finely milled, and I love using it with this brush. Together, they somehow make my skin look flawless, even though the coverage is minimal (it is a setting powder after all, not a mineral foundation. It took me the longest time to figure out the difference between the two). You know what else is great? The $5 price tag, and the fact that this feels weightless on my face.
The only flaw about this is the packaging. I guess for $5, they don’t throw in a lid that actually stays shut, which is unfortunate because I do like how slim and compact it is. I usually have to tape it down whenever I bring it on trips with me, but it’s well worth the hassle.
My rating: A+++
Hopefully you guys are still reading this blog :D Let me know what you’ve been up to these past three weeks!
