An HG discovery: Coverderm Compact PowderThursday, October 20, 2016
To be completely honest, it's been so long since I found a face powder that doesn't make me look like a kabuki.
The last face powder that is so light on the face but gives good light-medium coverage that I have ever used was Maybelline when I was in college but that has long been discontinued. I have been looking for a pressed powder like it but I never found it until now, not even from Maybelline.
|Coverderm Compact Powder in Normal Skin, PhP 1675|
When I started makeup artistry in 2004, Covermark was still available in SM but a few months later, they were no longer available.
Just a little background on the importance of camouflage makeup, back in the day, camouflage makeup was only available in dermas and not readily available in the market. And since various skin imperfections like birthmarks, acne, scars, burns, moles, vitiligo, dark spots, pigmentation, freckles and facial redness have to be covered on some important occasions like for formal occasions, one must opt to go to the derma to buy camouflage makeup, or even higher a professional makeup artist to cover them!
Housed in a gold sturdy, plastic packaging, this compact powder is really the ace of aces. The first thing I checked for was the smell. I am so happy that it didn't have any strong perfumed smell.
I chose the normal skin formula, and chose shade number 3 which is just perfect for my skin tone and shade.
Although if I had one issue with this product, it would be the sponge that comes with it. It's a plain sponge that looks like the inside of a velour puff, and it can't seem to apply the powder well on the skin. So I use Nippon Esthetic's Teardrop Sponge to apply this powder. I just love that sponge! It can even double as an oil blotter because it absorbs oil real well!
I also love that it doesn't sit on the fine lines of the skin. It's just really invisible. It has a translucent feel, but has coverage. I just love love LOOOOVE using this powder on top of any liquid or cream foundation because it sets the makeup and feels so light! I also love using it alone when I am in a rush and it gives my skin a good light coverage and a flawless finish.
MY OVERALL RATING: ★★★★★
