REVIEW: Skinfood Buckwheat Loose Powder in Transparent

Good afternoon belles!
Today the sun above my city shines so brightly. When in a day like this, I always sweating and thus I suddenly become very addicted to touch up my makeup. Because my daily makeup only consist of eyeliner, brow, tinted lip balm and powder, I need a good powder that could help me reducing the needs of blotting my face. I am a fan of loose powders, and my current holy grail is the one from Skinfood, Buckwheat Loose Powder, that I am going to review now. This loose powder have four variant of shades: Transparent, Skin Beige, Natural Beige and Lavender. I own the transparent one.

Hari ini matahari di atas Surabaya kayaknya lagi happy, terik banget sinarnya, hehe.. Di hari-hari seperti ini, karena aku orang yang lumayan gampang keringetan, aku juga mendadak jadi suka touch up, padahal sehari-hari cuma pakai bedak, eyeliner sama brow liner kalo lagi nggak males, dan lipbalm, hehehe... Buat bedak aku lebih suka pakai yang bentuknya tabur, dan favoritku saat ini adalah Skinfood Buckwheat Loose Powder, yang akan aku review kali ini. Bedak ini sendiri punya 4 macam warna, Skin Beige, Natural Beige, Lavender dan Transparent. Aku beli bedak ini lewat online shop dan karena itu nggak bisa lihat langsung dan takut kalau warnanya nggak cocok di aku, jadi pilih yang Transparent deh.

Infused with soft, fine pearl particles, this multi-function powder achieves a subtle, luminous finish. Rice extract creates a clearer, incredibly radiant skin tone.

After foundation, dap gently in following order: forehead→eyelids→cheeks→lips. Press remaining residue gently under eyes.

Round and a bit bulky, it contains 23 grams beige-colored powder and a sponge. Although it might be not so travel friendly, I love this kind of packaging, simple and classic. The puff itself has a very good quality, soft and well made.

Pertama kali lihat...lucu! Langsung suka sama packagingnya. Tempat bedaknya berbentuk bulat dan agak sedikit tebel, jadi mungkin agak susah kalau dibawa jalan-jalan. Designnya agak-agak vintage gitu menurutku. Puff-nya sendiri lembut dan enak banget dipakai.

As you can see, the texture is really soft. The color seems to be lighter than my skin tone, but after blended, it became transparent. The finish is matte and the coverage is sheer. Perfect for daily use. About the staying power, on my combination skin it stays about 3-4 hours.
Tekstur bedaknya lembut dan walaupun sepertinya warnanya sedikit terang, kalo dipakai jadi menyatu dengan kulit ^^ Bedak ini coveragenya sheer, ngak menor jadi cocok buat dipakai sehari-hari. Di kulit kombinasiku daya tahannya bisa sampai 3-4 jam.


I love everything in this loose powder. Super-good quality with affordable price, definitely my fave!
Aku suka banget sama bedak ini. Wanginya enak dan hasilnya nggak menor. Harganya juga masih terjangkau buat kantongku dan packagingnya juga lucu ^^
