Thursday, August 15, 2013
I admit that I get excited when I receive new and shiny things. Duh! Like everyone does! So when I received this lovely gift from Mary Kay Philippines, I was all too happy :) Let's see what we have here:

Mary Kay Translucent Loose Powder Review

They sent me their new product which they call the MK Translucent Loose Powder, a powder brush and a very cute compact mirror along with their latest brochure. I actually love that they sent me the brush and the mirror because it helps me use the loose powder conveniently! After using the product for a few weeks now, I am ready to share my thoughts. Read on for the review..

Mary Kay Translucent Loose Powder Review

Mary Kay Translucent Loose Powder is a sheer powder designed for oil control and makeup setting. The product comes in tub with a sleek black cover. Now what I really love about the packaging is that the it has a sifter and that you can lock it so the product doesn't spill inside your bag or when it tumbles. So clever! :)

Looking closely at the product, you'll see that it resembles the usual loose powder however it contains just the right amount of shimmer that actually diffuses light which softens the appearance of imperfections such as fine lines and blemishes. At first, I was scared that it'll make my face look chalk white or a shade lighter but I was wrong. Upon application, I noticed that it adapted to my skin tone - it didn't appear a shade lighter or darker, just right! I usually use the product after application of makeup to set it. I love that it feels velvety and soft on my skin and that it matches my skin tone. I must commend it for giving my face a radiant glow too and it shows in photos!  Another thing that amazed is that it controls oil and shine quite effectively. I tend to have oily skin towards the end of the day but it lessened when I started to use this powder. In a  nutshell, here are the pros and cons of using this product:

What I love about it:
  • Little goes a long way.
  • Clever packaging!
  • Controls oil and shine effectively.
  • Matches my skin tone.
  • Fragrance-free.
  • Feels soft and velvety.
  • Doesn't feel heavy on the face.
  • Gives your face a radiant glow
  • Didn't break me out
  • Provides a light and sheer finish on skin
What I don't like about it:
  • It's a little pricey just for loose powder.    (It costs PHP800)
All in all, the pros outweigh the cons! I have continuously used this product and have included this in my daily makeup routine because it is truly an effective product for me. :) Aside from the loose powder, I am also in love with the compact mirror that came with it because it looks so divine - the embossed design is super cute. I carry this in my bag everyday for emergency touch ups - super handy!
