Product Review: Sephora Mattifying Powder Foundation + The new version!
That’s Italian for hello and goodbye!
You learn something new everyday!
Now my little chico and chiconas
I bring to you today a review of a powder foundation
One of my HOLY GRAIL products of powder foundations!
So without further ado…
It is the…
Sephora Mattifying Powder Foundation
Which looks like this:
I hit pan on it!
Evidence that I love this very very much!
The shade I have it in is Light 10
It comes with 9g of product
Not a lot but not little either
For reference MAC gives 15g of product
However if you buy two of Sephora foundation you will get more at a cheaper price
It comes in a flip up compact with a clear plastic lid
This is taken with flash to better judge the colour
Taken without flash
It has a yellow tone under it
Very complementing to my skin since I have a yellow undertone as well
For those who do not have yellow undertones
Do not worry as they come in warm, cool and neutral shades
Under the foundation is a compartment where the sponge is
Which I have thrown away!
If you don’t close it properly
It kinda looks like a one eyed monster from here
Heavy swatch of the powder
It is very creamy and silky to apply
IMO its better than the MAC Studio Fix Powder
This is however one drawback to this product
It smells kinda bad
It blends right into my skin
Coverage is light to full depending on how you apply it
I usually use a large fluffy brush to buff it into my skin
So I look natural
The oily control for me is about 3 hours before I start to look oily
The new compact
Sephora recently repackaged the foundation into a flatter and longer compact
The bad thing about this is that they have decreased the amount that it comes in
The older version gives 9g of product but the new version gives only 8.5g of product
The compact now features the mirror on the cover of the compact
Along with the sponge on the same level of the foundation
It also uses a magnetic closure instead of the old click closure
This is a comparison on the shade that I have
The top is Light 10 (Old)
The bottom is Light 20 (New)
Very similar right?
I think they also expanded the shade range for this foundation
Good going Sephora!
This is how I look like with the foundation on
Sephora Mattifying Powder Foundation retails for RM45 at all Sephora outlets
Although they have decreased the amount that it comes in, I will definitely repurchase this because it is just that good!
That’s all for today
