Catrice Multi Colour Compact Powder

Catrice Cosmetics Multi Colour Compact Powder - R44.95

The Catrice Multi Colour Compact Powder is very unique as its a blend of compact powder, bronzer and blush all in one thats not overly pigmented. I use this on my cheeks when I don't want any proper blush or bronzer and it gives a lovely bronzey, pinky but natural colour to your cheeks. It looks natural because of the pale compact powder mixed in, this one is particularly for light skin. I have used this all over my face and it stops shine but it just doesn't look right when I put it all over my face. I'm not sure what it was that made it look odd but it really didn't look at all natural. I think its best suited for a little bit of dusting here and there on my skin and is great for some slight colour to my cheeks, it may look great for some people all over their face but its just not for me. It is a great product though and I always reach for it when I'm not in the mood for heavy blush or bronzer.

Essence Pure Skin Compact Powder

Happy Easter for yesterday everyone :) I hope you have all had a fab long weekend. Today I'm gonna talk about one of my recent buy's - Essence Pure Skin Compact Powder.

This powder is the colour 02 Sand. It claims to fight spots although I just don't see that happening to be very honest. With that negative bit said I have to say that this is the best compact powder I've used. Ever. When I bought it, it looked like it would suit my skin colour but it's actually a little bit too light for me but my foundation and extra goodies help me work around that.

I use this over my foundation, well depending on what foundation I am using. I especially use this over my Catrice Ultimate Moisture tinted moisturiser to stop the shine on my T-zone and nose with my kabuki brush so that it buffs my foundation as well. It makes my foundation stay on longer and give me a slightly matte finish without being overboard matte. I wouldn't use this alone as it makes skin look a bit too pale and almost ashy but over foundation it's perfect.

It's very soft to the touch, it feels like silk to be honest. I'm really glad that I bought this compact powder and I will be using it daily for any shiny bits I get during the day. I highly recommend this for anyone who has combonation to oily skin.
