Whether you use BBcreams or Plain foundations, It is very necessary to use a good setting powder esp in this hot and humid weather.
WHAT THE BRAND CLAIMS
Cinema Secrets Ultimate Setting Powder
One of the finest setting formulas available, our Ultralucent Loose Powder sets any cream without caking. The superfine mineral powder effortlessly glides on and works into crevices to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Preferred by many of the world's leading professional makeup artists, this luxurious micro-pulverized finisher is clump-free and anti-perspirant for all-day streak-free wear.
It comes in 6 shades.
i chose Colorless formula as it will not alter foundation tone.
With proper use, container should allow for over 1000 applications.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
For best results, dip professional puff into small amount of powder. Fold puff in half like a taco and rub halves together (as if rubbing out a stain) to work powder throughout puff. Roll/pat onto foundation and press to work powder into foundation. Finish by brushing away excess powder and spritzing with Cinema Secrets Moisture Spray to absorb any residue.
It comes in a simple white container having silver colored screw lid.
As such you don't have to worry about spilling the powder when you carry it around.
Has pored on the secondary lid to prevent excess powder on your brush/puff.
Does not come with a puff so you have to arrange that on your own.
I prefer to apply mine using a fluffy powder brush .
Since the shade is translucent it does not alter my Bbcream shades.
It only absorbs the excess oil and gives it a semi-matte finish.
Also the powder is really smooth and makes my face feel soft.
It does not give a cakey finish.
The quantity is a lot so i imagine it will last me for a long time.
They say 1000 applications but not so sure about that as it does require touch ups as opposed to the brand claiming it to last whole day.
After a while it starts giving me a dewy look which gradually progresses to oily look if i don't re-apply.
