Catrice Prime and Fine Translucent Loose Powder - Review

Hey lovelies! Hope you guys are enjoying the pleasant change in weather but in my part of the world, there are still hot and sweaty days. Regardless, one should never underestimate the importance of a good setting powder! I will be reviewing the Translucent Loose Powder from the Catrice Prime and Fine range today. Read on to find out how it fared in my opinion.

Product Claims

Transparent loose powder for a longlasting matt-effect and a fixed foundation, without drying out the skin. Result: An even, velvety-matt but radiant complexion.

What Do I Think?

For starters, it always makes me happy when makeup comes in big jars. It just gives me a little satisfaction that at least I am paying for a reasonable amount of product. We have a pretty long summer around here and it’s even worse in monsoon when the humidity levels shoot to the skies! How is a girl to keep her makeup on properly in such conditions I ask you? Thankfully, this product proved to be one of the heroic saviors! The texture is really fine and that’s a must for every setting powder. A plus point is that it actually is translucent when blended, despite its scary white appearance. So I am happy to report that it does not create a white cast on my face when applied. Another cool thing is that it actually serves to brighten my complexion and definitely makes it seem finer!

Now, let’s talk about the most important point, does it do its job well? The answer is yes! I love the feel of my skin after I apply it over my foundation. It really helps to keep my makeup on for a much longer period of time and aids in keeping my T-zone oil free for quite some time. I tested this product in extreme humid weather. I exercised and walked around for a few hours and my make up stayed on my face despite the sweat even in such weather. I was impressed. In fall, this loose powder kept my make up fresh from morning till evening apart from some oil on my T-zone half way through the day. I think it will suit every type of skin and does its work well.
