Best Loose Power Ever!

”I’ve been using this for over a decade and it’s amazing! It’s not chalky or heavy, it’s silky and satiny. I wear it over the original Tinted Moisturizer and it leaves my skin looking healthy and flawless. It works well over any foundation I use but my favorite is to use it over the tinted moisturizer. A little pricey but there’s a lot in the package compared to most other companies. I can’t recommend this enough.”

My HG powder. It sets my foundation beautifully and absorbs all the excess oil without looking cakey. It just makes my face a lot smoother. I am in love with this powder. Definitely the best loose powder I have ever tried.

Holy grail

This is my first ever high end powder and it really holds up to its claims! It keeps the oils at bay and it doesn't have white cast, so it's perfect for photoshoots and selfies. I've had this for over a year now and I still have about more than half of the tub. The only downside to this is you can't travel with it because it's loose and can be messy when you retouch. I use a dome brush to apply it.

Out of all the powders I own, this one most definitely has the most longevity. When I apply this at 8 am in the morning, I can always count on this powder staying intact on my face throughout the day (even on very oily T-Zone). You need the tiniest bit of this powder or else it can look quite cakey but since a little goes a very long way the price is most definitely justified and I can see this powder lasting at least a few years! Could not recommend this powder enough, especially for those who like an airbrushed, full finish foundation.

The high-end product you need!!

Super worth it!!!! I have oily acne-prone skin and I never experience breakouts (I usually do kasi sa powders that I use before e.g RCMA) when I use this powder alone or to set my foundation. Has coverage ish so apply just the right amount. I've been using this for more than 6 months now and super okay and worth it and will be buying a new one soon yaaaaay <3

The latest (and best) addition to makeup collection <3

I love this product! It may have a steep price, but it is definitely worth every penny. You also don't need much. A little goes a long way, especially if you aren't necessarily into baking with it. I just tap a bit onto the cap and use a fluffy powder brush to dust it all over my face and it instantly gives me a smooth canvas. It is translucent, so I'm glad it doesn't mess with my face color. I always have a problem of matching powders with my undertone, and they always end up making me look whiter, but this powder doesn't do that. It makes me look smooth and flawless. So worth it.

Classic, Reliable, Amazing Loose Powder

One of the best loose powders there is. There's a reason this has a cult status, and that's because it really performs well. It's translucent and works for a wide range of skintones, it controlls oil very well, and it really makes the skin look so smooth and fine. It also lasts a really long time (unless you use it to bake, in which case, it might not), so it's such a good price for what you get.
