Review of Agnes B. Radiant Loose Face Powder by miranets
Me -NC30 yellow undertones, combo skin, oily tzone, somewhat sensitive to talc powders.
I have this in "lumier d'arore" sunlight yellow or some such gloss, a true cream medium yellow - for reference and comparison, a shade darker than T Leclerc Banane. Matte and no shimmer. I am a huge fan of true yellow make up, as it serves to brighten my ruddy-ish cheeks up and does not cause any sort of jaundice effect at all. It is the beige/peach hues in makeup that make me look *yuk*.
The mill is fine, to par with the likes of CdP(!) and T Leclerc, Kevyn Aucoin, Caron etc.. But it is heavily scented, a cloying musk/talc aroma, it is bearable for me and does not cause any problems.
The packaging is probably the worst I've come across. The first time I removed the sifter seal sticker, the entire sifter flew off! It is merely stuck into the container, no grip at all - so becareful when you open your first jar, pray you don't spill half its contents out. Once all technical glitches are overcome, the powder itself is lovely.
Coverage is sheer, probably best used as a setting powder on top of foundation or liquids, or for those of good skin and even warm complexions it imparts a very nice radiance. This does lighten my skintone a bit as well, but after it settles the colouring becomes very natural.
