Looks good in theory, but then it doesn't in reality.
You know when you have a wonderful idea which seems great at first when you think about it, but when it actually comes to life, it's not at all what you thought it would be? That's what this powder looked like on my skin and how I applied it.
Upon receiving my parcel, taking hold of this hefty one, and opening it, you'll immediately notice that there's spillage of product. The case has some traces of powder. Once you actually open the compact, the mirror and the very soft sponge have a lot of powder on them. There isn't any adhesive which should help with the spillage.
Anyhow, back to the product. The bezel does its job, and the powders appear in all their pretty pastel colors. I tried mixing them with liquid foundation and I also used them on their own over a base. And it. Is. Messy. Quite messy, in fact, that you'll notice how uneven your application is immediately and hours afterwards.
Mixing the powders up into a colorless powder is also a challenge, as a lot of product naturally escapes from the compact. I did notice that they thought about the depth of the mixing pan-cum-bezel. However, using this as a loose powder still isn't good enough as a loose powder to set foundation.
On the bright side, the separate powders remind me of the colored and scented Pond's powders back when I'd just entered high school.
