Collection sheer loose powder in Translucent

Hi Beauts.

I already have my holy grail face powder, but being the make up addict that I am I always like to try new/other products. Whilst having a massive sort out I found the collection sheer loose powder that I had bought a few months back after watching a review on YouTube.

I've been using it every day since I rediscovered it and wanted to let you in on my thoughts. 

Packaging - Although this isn't ideal for travelling- it's pretty chunky and I'd be worried that the powder would spill everywhere -  it's great for sitting on your dressing table. It comes with a powder puff which I never use but it comes in handy for stopping the powder spilling into the lid. 

Product - This is a translucent powder which is great as it doesn't affect the shade of your foundation, and is super fine so it doesn't feel like your adding anything extra to you face. I didn't notice any oxidisation throughout the day, which I have noticed with other powders.

Application - To get the product out, I tip out a small amount (I take a small amount at a time as you can't put it back in the tub) into the lid and dip my brush into the powder then tap off any excess. The powder has a small amount of coverage which is another thing I like and doesn't look cakey at all.

Lasting power - I didn't need to re powder throughout the day, which I usually do unless I use my SEVENTEEN miracle matte. Again there was no oxidisation and my make up looked pretty damn good after 8 hours, apart from my chin which is the oiliest part of my face and the part I have most trouble with. I noticed no shine throughout the day which is once again another bonus!

All in all, I think this a pretty great powder especially for the price: £2.99. Bargain or what?!

Have you tried this powder? What did you think?

I'd love it if you gave my lifestyle blog a cheeky little follow? :)
