Essence Fix & Matte Translucent Loose Powder [Review]

Dear readers,

One hot Summer's day I happened to buy the Essence Translucent Powder, a powder which I ended up using on a daily bases. Before that, I always had used the pressed powder compacts which we are normally accustomed too.

What I really like about translucent powders is that once applied, it doesn't alter/change the colour of your foundation and/or concealer, especially if the powder you have isn't a perfect match.

...and no, this won't make you look any paler :p

It comes in a plastic small container / tub, and it has a sifter inside. You get 15.5 grms of product - quite good considering the fact that this was really cheap (around 5 Euros if I remember correctly). And it lasts quite a long time - as mentioned earlier, I bought this during Summer, I use this everyday and I still have about a quarter of product left.

I normally apply this using a large powder or blush brush (yes I know - I must buy a Kabuki brush) on my BB cream or on my foundation. I apply more powder on my t-zone since I happen to be more oily there.

This normally lasts a good 4-6 hours, depending on the temperature of the day.
