I solely bought this for the packaging...(I lurve anna sui packaging~~i have like 5 anna sui mirrors) anyways...the powder itself is okay...nothing special about it...it ain't sheer...no oil control...my skin(oily/acne prone) looks nice when my face is just done up..but after couple of hours it seems to cake a bit..but my mum who has normalish skin wears this on top of her moisturizer and looks fab all day..
The coverage is just too full for me. As loose powder, this felt heavy and so made-up for me. The packaging is very beautiful, though. I will just keep the case, thank u!
Although the packaging and scent deserves a 5, however I find that this product will turn chalky on my skin. Will never buy it again
This is very nice powder. I use it with no problems, though most powders seem to really accentuate my dry skin. Whether I use it to set my foundation, or by itself, it makes my skin look smooth and flawless. The smell (tea rose) is divine, the packaging is gorgeous, and the puff is soft and luxurious. I actually prefer the old black packaging to the newer gold packaging, but they're both beautiful. Also, the newly formulated powder is slightly darker than in the old packaging, as in 700 is half a shade darker than it used to be. But since 700 was almost white to begin with, I can still wear the new version of it, even though I am practically pigmentless. Also, I find the newer formula to be much more silky and fine. The price point is a little high, but I happily pay it for a product that pleases me on every level.
I got this one in the gold finish rose case and it looks so beautiful the container that is. The purple poof in the inside makes me feel all girly and I like the scent of it. It gives me a nice light coverage, it does make me less red according to my friends. It doesn't take a lot to cover the face and matches well with this my LLL Skin, Stila 20 Watts I'm also Asian so this works well for me.
I received this as a birthday present so I dont really know the price of it. I was given the purple colour powder. I have a love hate relationship with the packaging...on the one hand it looks lovely on your table top (it comes in a gorgeous rose black casing)...on the other it is just terrible to bring it travelling! Love the gorgeous scent!Hate the sparkles!The lavender powder might be good only for night as when i wear it during the day time, people notice the sparkles!!I might buy it without the sparkles but not this version cos I dun get much use out of it!
this powder seems to make me looks fairer. love the glitter in it...smells nice too! love the box...but cant bring it out as it will tip over and make a huge mess. i love the furry purple puff!!! will purchase it in a different colour when im done with this one. =)
I got this in purple. Its not as finely milled as I expect it to be, and its too chalky, it makes my face look white. It kinda settles into my pores&lines&dry patches. Very dissapointing. I love its gothic lolita design, even so its not very user friendly, the lid falls of like mad I have to tied the box with bubber bands how ironic is that the whole package is stunning but coz of the silly lid I have no choice but ruin the whole look... I will not buy this again, I need something more sheer and more finely milled. continued >>
Absolutely love this powder. I'm a LLL Asian (Stila 20 watts) and I use this loose powder in the 700. It doesn't leave me looking chalky or dry. And the scent is absolutely beautiful. I LOVE the packaging (I have the gold not black container.) I have to agree that this is definitely not portable or spill proof.
Ok - so everyone's mentioned the lack of transportability with this product. It's true - you can't take it anywhere. But it is such a great everyday product! I apply with the big old brush, and people tell me I look glowing and radiant. I haven't gone for the purple one, which is too sparkly, but the orange one. It leaves a sheen, that only you notice, and is great with their blushes. Smell is lovely and soothing, and less obtrusive than the Jurlique Silk Dust that everyone seems to rave about. My money, this is the one. (Now we just need it in a compact!)
