As a general rule for anyone with oily skin, a setting powder is a must if you want your makeup to survive more than 2 hours everyday. Even better, a mattifying powder is going to be an immense help. That’s why Happy Skin has proudly come up with their very own Mattifying Powder to aid us.
#SKIPTHEFILTER WITH POWDER
It’s time to fall matte-ly in love! The Happy Skin Matte of Your Dreams Oil Control Mattifying Powder is a skin-savior for those struggling with oily skin. This weightless, undetectable translucent pressed powder is great for controlling oil and setting makeup. perfect for all skin tones, it blends onto the skin with a soft, matte finish, and keeps the face fresh even in the heat. Use it as your powder foundation or as your finishing powder to achieve a smoother look and give your makeup a shine-free flawless finish!
Like the Matte About You Primer, the Matte Of Your Dreams Oil Control Mattifying Powder has a blue packaging with mermaid-like scales on the cover. The compact holds 8 g of product and has a separate compartment underneath the powder to house the powder puff. I used the puff several times to pat the down the powder after I’ve finished applying my foundation and it does the job quite well.
The setting powder has finely-milled particles that gives the face an over all soft and matte finish. There’s no discernible scent of any kind. I find it to be a bit stiff on the pan but not dry or chalky. I had hoped it would also have a smooth texture so it can be easily blended but it wasn’t meant to be.
A word of caution though, you have to blend this powder out on your skin carefully and thoroughly or else a white cast will be visible. It was the first thing I noticed on the first day I wore this. So did my other colleagues. I use a dense buffing brush to make sure it doesn’t happen.
It’s great for touch-ups in the middle of the day when my face gets too oily or just a little bit shiny on my T-zone and the compact is sturdy enough to be slipped inside my makeup kit. On a typical day, I get about 2 to 3 hours of shine-free skin before I need to whip it out for a retouch.
At the end of the day, it works better when used in conjunction with the Matte About You Primer as I’ve observed that my makeup last longer when I use those two together.
The Matte Of Your Dreams Oil Control Mattifying Powder retails for Php 1,299 from Happy Skin.
