Today I'm going to review a pressed powder from Skin Food. The Peach Sake Pore Pact is is part of the Peach Sake series, which has masks, concealers, facial mists, and lots of other products. I was in need of a pressed powder so I went for this. :)
Well let's jump in to the pictures:
Front, cute little peaches. I was surprised this compact was pretty sturdy, and bulkier than I've imagined, but it's still travel friendly.
Back, I believe it says the manufacturing date is 2013, 03, 14, and the expiry date is 2016, February?
The two little holes is there so that you can poke it to change the powder inside when you are finished with it.
Inside, I love how the ribbon is stitched on to the puff, I find it so cute. hehe
The mirror is a good size, I can see most of my big face in it. xD
The plastic tray separating the puff from the product. And my finger ._.
This did not come with a box, it was wrapped in a plastic seal around the opening. The packaging is cute, and sturdy. The lid snaps on easily without being too tight or loose. I have no complaints on the outside of the compact. However, the plastic tray on the inside is a bit annoying to take out and place back in. I would have wished it was a tray that can be slid aside or flipped over. But I guess that would add additional cost to it, and in the end I'm just glad they included a separator, so I'm OK with it. :)
The puff, very soft.
The puff itself is very cute, and delicately made with the ribbon stitched on it. It's also very soft, I'm not sure how to describe it, but it feels like it's made from a velvety material but more densely packed with shorter fibers (?). I like using it, and it picks up powder well too, but it attracts lint very easily! >.< So I might have to switch to a powder brush later on.
It's very dry and powdery. and a bit lighter than my skin tone.
I had to go over this 4 or 5 times in order for the powder to actually be visible. So in reality, it is a translucent powder, and wouldn't look this cakey on the face.
My face with just Etude House Precious Mineral BB cream.
Please disregard my red nose, I am currently suffering from the sniffles. :<
With one layer of powder applied on top. Also the shadows of the lighting looks like it has given me facial hair lol. Cannot unsee. O_O
I think the pictures really show how the powder mattified my face. It also reduced the redness around my nose, and my freckles and sun spots are less visible too! It doesn't look cakey or powdery at all.
I really like how light it feels, it would be great for the summer times when the face is the most oily, but doesn't add extra weight.
The only downside is that it wears off quickly, after around 2-3 hours I would see my skin starting to become shiny again, and I would need to reapply. So I'm glad it's in a travel friendly packaging.
There is a slight powdery peachy scent to it, I really like it. It's very light and I can't smell it when It's on my face.
Overall, I would recommend this if you have oily skin, this would help mattify it for a short period of time. However, if your skin is very oily, the effect of this powder probably wouldn't last too long, and reapplications is needed. It also covers some imperfections, so when you don't feel like putting on heavy makeup this by itself would do too.
- Cute sturdy packaging
