Review: SILKYGIRL Shine-Free Loose Powder

Hello, lovelies~ For those with oily skin will almost always go with loose powder because it has a lesser chance of breaking them out. I am one of those people. ^_^

SILKYGIRL Shine-free Loose Powder
02 Natural Medium

A soft, smooth and micro-fine loose powder for a matte silky finish.

Availability: SILKYGIRL counters
Size: 20g

The loose powder has a separate blue themed box with all of the information of product description to ingredients. Inside the box, is a transparent, round 7 cm diameter case filled with the product. It has two shades; number 1 is Natural Light and number 2 is Natural Medium, I picked number 2. 

The main ingredient of this powder is talc, which helps to absorb excess oil on the face. Dimethicone helps to create a silky finish after finish patting with the provided puff. It uses methtylparaben and propylparaben as the preservative. Bisabolol acts as a fragrance.

I use this on my T zone area by patting it with the puff, followed by using a powder brush to remove excess powder in a downward motion.

The powder is so fine and silky
On my combination dry skin, I find the oil control is quite alright. My T zone gets slightly oily after around the 3 hour mark. Compared to Marcks loose powder, this has a better oil control on my face. Although I would need to erase the slight shine with an oil blotting film afterwards.

Since this is a loose powder, the coverage it offers is sheer. It is just perfect to set liquid foundations. It has a matte finish and tends to exaggerate dry patches if I have any that day. In other words, I would stay away from this powder if my skin is slightly drier than usual.

That being said, I like the lightweight feeling for everyday use. So, if you're looking for a drugstore loose powder other than Marcks Venus, this could be an option to consider.
