Revelique Loose Powder / Nude

11/03/2012


This is a product that absolutely wowed me. It is the Revelique Loose Powder in Nude. As an owner of a combination skin type, I cannot stress enough how important it is to have a trusty translucent powder at your disposal. The notorious T-zone is notorious for a reason and mine is no exception. Since I have discovered a perfect foundation and a BB cream that suits my taste, loose powder was definitely something I was lacking and something I needed at the same time. 

Ovo je proizvod koji me odusevio. U pitanju je Revelique Loose Powder u nijansi Nude. Posto imam mjesoviti tip koze, ne mogu dovoljno da naglasim koliko je bitno imati pouzdan neutralni puder u prahu. Ozloglasena T-zona je ozloglasena sa razlogom a moja nije izuzetak od pravila. Buduci da sam otkrila za sebe idealnu podlogu i BB kremu koje mi u potpunosti odgovaraju, puder u prahu mi je jako potreban i nesto sto nisam posjedovala do nedavno.


I have had loose powders before but all were highly pigmented and with every application I got a dosage of those pigments, even though I did not need them and ended up with a cakey appearance. Translucent is something many brands have claimed to have but the ones I have tried never were truly neutral color-wise. Besides the unwanted color (mostly orange), I had a problem with loose powders not keeping me matte as I would want. Since I dont have the classic oily skin type, I suppose my criteria is not as high as if it would be in the case of an oily skin emergency but decent performace is a must. This Revelique loose powder is hitting all the high notes with every application and has restored my faith in loose powders again. 

Koristila sam pudere u prahu i prije ali svi su bez izuzetka bili jako pigmentirani tako da sam svakim koristenjem dobijala odredjenu kolicinu njihovih pigmenata, iako to ustvari nisam zeljela pa bih na kraju dobila neprirodan izgled, pretjerano istaknute boje koja mi nije odgovarala. Neutralan, skoro proziran puder u prahu je nesto sto odredjeni brendovi tvrde da imaju ali oni koje sam ja isprobala nisu bili neutralni vec izrazito pigmentirani. Pored nezeljene doze boje (koja je najcesce bila narandzastih tonova), drugi problem sa kojim sam se suocavala koristenjem pudera u prahu jeste sto mi nisu pruzali mat zavrsetak barem na pristojno vrijeme. Posto nemam tipicni masni tip koze, pretpostavljam da tu moji kriteriji i nisu toliko visoki kao kada bi bili da zaista imam masnu kozu ali bez obzira, pristojna performansa je nesto sto zahtijevam. Revelique puder u prahu je uspio da bude uspjesan u svemu sto sam ocekivala i napokon sam pocela da vjerujem u pudere u prahu.


First of all, the beautiful packaging is very eye catching. Many ladies when they see me using it have asked me what is it, where did I get it and is it good as it looks. It comes in a plastic round jar with a screw-on lid. A very good powder brush comes within the powder packaging and I really like it, even if I was a bit sceptic towards it at first since we all know that brushes that come with certain products are there simply to fulfill the norm. This time, we have a really decent powder brush which is extremely easy to use. The powder itself is located at the bottom half of the jar and it is held in place with the help of a transparent foil which stops the powder from spilling before purchase. When you do purchase it, you remove the foil and slightly tilt the container to the side which makes it release an optimal amount of the powder. Now, I have gone through the same procedure with other loose powders which always released too much of the product, leaving me in a powdery mess. Not the case with this one with which optimal really means optimal. Very economic which I like. 

Prije svega, samo pakovanje je jako ugodno oku. Kada bi ga ugledale u mojim rukama mnoge dame su me pitale kakav je to proizvod, gdje sam ga nabavila i da li je kvalitetan kao sto izgleda. Pakovanje je plasticna okrugla kutija sa poklopcem na navrtanje. Uz njega cete dobiti cetku za puder koja je iznenadjujuce kvalitetna i korisna, iako sam i ja u pocetku bila skepticna glede nje jer svi smo upoznati da cetkice koje dolaze uz odredjene kozmeticke proizvode su tu samo da ispune normu. Ovaj put u pitanju je zaista pristojna cetkica za puder koja je jednostavna za koristenje. Sam puder je lociran na dnu druge polovice kutije i na mjestu ga drzi plasticna folija koja je takodjer tu da se ne bi prosipao prije kupovine. Kada ga kupite, odlijepite foliju i lagano ga protresete u stranu sto ce otpustiti optimalnu kolicinu pudera. Sa drugim puderima ove vrste sam prolazila kroz istu upotrebu i nikada nisu otpustili tu navodnu optimalnu kolicinu pudera nego ga izadje previse i sva budem prasnjava. Srecom, to mi se nije desilo ovaj put jer sa njim optimalno stvarno znaci optimalno. Samim time je i ekonomican jer ga necete rasipati.


Revelique Loose Powder is available in only one shade (Nude), which is a universally flattering shade. It does seem to lean towards a lighter tone but that wasn't a problem, even for my medium beige complexion. When you do dip the ergonomic friendly brush into the powder, you will notice how it is applied relatively evenly, blends perfectly and somehow melts into the skin, leaving no residue. It evens out and corrects minor skin problems. The real quality of this powder is that it keeps the oiliness and unwanted shine at bay. Skin really looks healthy and soft but matte as well. Doesn't transfer at all and really is a longlasting powder. Even if you feel the need to reapply during the day (if you have the above mentioned typical oily skin type) it won't leave you cakey nor will it interfere with the foundation you may have on or the previously applied powder. It will also last you for a very long time due to the economic powder release per tilt, as I mentioned before. 

Revelique Loose Powder je dostupan u samo jednoj nijansi (Nude), koja je prilicno univerzalna. Doduse djeluje kao da naginje na svjetliji ton ali zacudjujuce, nije mi to predstavljalo problem cak ni sa mojim srednje, toplim bez tenom. Kada predjete ergonomskom cetkicom preko oslobodjene kolicine pudera, primjetiti cete da se nanosi relativno ravnomjerno, savrseno blenda i nekako se stopi sa kozom, ne ostavljajuci nikakav trag. Ujednaci i pokrije manje neravnine. Najveci kvalitet ovog pudera jeste sto stvarno drzi pod kontrolom masnocu i sjaj. Ten djeluje zdravo i meko ali i mat. Ne prenosi se lako sa lica i stvarno je dugotrajan. U slucaju da primjetite kako vam je potrebno ponovo nanosenje tokom dana (u pitanju je prethodno navedeni tipicni masni tip koze), nece vam djelovati neprirodno, niti ce djelovati naslagano na prethodno nanesenu podlogu ili ostatke prethodnog pudera. Lijepo ce se stopiti sa kozom. Takodjer ce vam jako dugo da traje zbog otpustanja normalne kolicine pudera po protresanju kutije, kao sto sam i spomenula.


What I want to specifically mention are the ingredients. Topaz powder has protective properties and stimulates the micro circulation while Vitamin E is known for its anti-ageing properties. It's very important to know that this powder is completely free from fragrance, talc, oil, parabens and PEGs (polyethylene glycols which are petroleum-based compounds and found in many cosmetic products). I will dedicate a special post to explain why this is extremely important and why to avoid products which do have them. One of many highlights about this powder is that you get 8g of powder for approx 7$ which makes it a very affordable and smart buy.

Ono sto zelim posebno da naglasim su sastojci. Puder topaz posjeduje zastitna svojstva i stimulise mikrocirkulaciju dok je vitamin E poznat po anti-ageing svojstvima. Veoma je bitno da znate kako ovaj puder ne sadrzi parfeme, talk, ulja, parabene niti PEG (sto su polietilen glikoli koji su naftni derivati i nalaze se u brojnim kozmetickim proizvodima). Posvetiti cu poseban clanak objasnjenju zasto je izuzetno bitno izbjegavati proizvode koji ih imaju u sastavu. Jedna od mnogih pozitivnih stvari vezanih za ovaj puder je i to sto cete dobiti 8 grama pudera za cijenu od 11,75KM sto ga cini povoljnom i pametnom kupovinom.

    1. Dear Lisa, Revelique is an internatioanl company which originates from Austria.
      They are a very young company and are testing how their products will pass on a small market first and then expand.
      They are currently available only in Bosnia and Herzegovina but soon they will go and try the field in other countries. It is truly great if you like their product, I will personally let them know that there are people interested in them far beyond Bosnia. I believe they will be thrilled! Thank you for leaving your comment and there will be many more Revelique products reviews so let me know what you think. Maybe that kind of encouragement is all they need.

      Thank you.
