As the weather rises (and shall rapidly fall again – no doubt about that) I realised I was beginning to look like a sweaty betty. I don’t love face powders at all – most look cakey on me, so I was looking for something with good coverage yet light with staying power.
Then I found powder, from B&C Labs, Japan.
There was only one shade, Mat Ocher.
It was darker than I expected, since a lot of Japanese Brands do light light shades for their powders.
First of all despite the huge tub its not a loose powder its pressed. Oh why oh why oh why did they have to put it in such a hugeeeee tub. It takes up space in the bag, its screw on so takes time to open and it comes with a giant puffy, er, puff. Impractical! Tut.
The powder itself if FAB. At first I felt the coverage wasn’t as great as it claimed but with a *puff puff* here and there it really smoothed out my skin without looking cakey or fake. The puff takes quite a lot of product off, so use sparingly – a big brush does the trick instead.
It leaves the skin matte, soft and silky – and yep, it lasts a good 6 hours in warm weather.
The powder smells of peach – gorgeous I tell you I could sit there and sniff it all day – but that would make me nuts.
As far as I know there is no SPF.
