Compact Powder Which Withstands 12h Shifts

3/26/2015


Compact powders - again, we have a type of product that holds a similar reputation in my world along with eyeliners. I like to use them every once in a while but I never found them to be something necessary in my everyday routine. Until I found my Revelique Soft Compact Powder which changed my entire perception of compact powders. After that awesome product I discovered the Bourjois Healthy Balance Compact Powder which is the Revelique's successor and ever since my little discovery of its existance I've been using it daily to fixate my concealer or to lightly matify my T-zone. I honestly thought that it couldn't be any better than it already was. Until I stumbled upon this extraordinary fella. Now, previous two powders (Revelique and Bourjois compacts) are the best all-round powders I know I can use on my entire face and they won't dry me out or make my face appear unnatural or cemented. However, this next compact is so hard core regarding its matifying properties and it fixates my concealer so incredibly well - I have no choice than to re-evaluate my previous favorites! Catrice Prime And Fine Mattifying Powder Waterproof hasn't left my makeup bag ever since day one and my Bourjois powder is literally wrestling with it on a daily basis as it's totally unpredictable who wins at the end of the day.

Puder u kamenu - ponovo imamo vrstu kozmetickog proizvoda koji u mom slucaju uziva reputaciju kao i tus za oci. Volim ga koristiti sa vremena na vrijeme no nikada ga nisam smatrala neophodnim dijelom svakodnevne kozmeticke rutine. Sve dok nisam pocela koristiti Revelique Soft Compact Powder koji je iz temelja izmijenio moju percepciju pudera. Nakon tako izuzetnog proizvoda sam otkrila i Bourjois Healthy Balance Compact Powder koji je bez problema uskocio na mjesto hvaljenog Revelique-a. Bourjois puder u kamenu sam koristila svakodnevno otkako sam postala svjesna njegovog postojanja i fantasticne izvedbe. Koristila sam ga ponajvise za blago matiranje T-zone i fiksiranje korektora ispod ociju. Iskreno, mislila sam da zaokruzeniji, kompletniji puder u kamenu ne moze biti od njega. Sve dok nisam naisla na ovog malisana koji je pravi cudotvorac. Prethodna dva pudera u kamenu koja sam spomenula (Revelique i Bourjois) smatram najkompletnijim proizvodima ove vrste koje bez problema mogu koristiti na povrsini cijelog lica posto znam da me nece isusiti niti ce uciniti da lice djeluje neprirodno ('zacementirano'). Ipak, puder u kamenu o kojem cu da pisem u nastavku ima prilicno snazna matirajuca svojstva i fiksira korektor tako uspjesno da naprosto ne mogu a da ne pocnem preispitivati svoja prethodna dva favorita.  Catrice Prime And Fine Mattifying Waterproof puder u kamenu nije napustio moj neseser jos od prvog dana koristenja i svakodnevno se Bourjois doslovno bori sa njim u neizvjesnosti - oba su jako dobra proizvoda i ne mogu pogrijesiti koji god da odaberem.



Catrice Prime And Fine Mattifying Powder Waterproof (€5.49) comes in a simple yet practical packaging - transparent with a black lid, made out of plastic and with a decent mirror inside the lid. It's sturdy and reliable although the lid can 'breathe' (silently move from side to side) but it has never opened up unexpectedly. Powder itself is available on a universal shade (010 Translucent - looks whitish) for which I honestly believe will suit most (if not all) fair and medium skin tones as I've tested it with my Dior Star (rather fair) and YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat (warm medium) foundations - it adapts to both flawlessly. The longevity of this powder is remarkable and I've actually tested its waterproof claims. It provides a rather strong matifying effect on the skin so I like to use it only on my T-zone. Despite it being strong, it doesn't emphasize dryness but if applied heavily it can take away dimension from the face. I mostly like to use it for fixating my concealer and even though these are big words - in this aspect, it's superior to any and every other compact powder I've ever tried. It keeps concealer in place during 12h + and when I come home, my concealer is just lightly faded but it never creased. I think that's amazing! Is it waterproof? Probably is because when this powder comes into contact with water, the drops simply roll off the surface (water doesn't get sucked in). Case in point: just take a look at the photos included in this review. It truly does withstand humidity well. If you take a look at the ingredient list you'll see that talc and corn starch are there to matify, take away the shine and blur any imperfections. Zinc stearate is also there to matify and it's the ingredient which repels water. Silica blurs out imperfections while sunflower seed oils, Vitamins A and E are gentle towards the skin. This compact is almost odorless and all of its 9g are to be used within 24 months which seems reasonable. All in all, it has my full recommendation as it's perfect for the upcoming warmer days of Spring.

Catrice Prime And Fine Mattifying Powder Waterproof (cca 10KM-11KM) dolazi u jednostavnom no prakticnom pakovanju. Rijec je o kombinaciji transparentne i crne plastike a ukljuceno je ogledalo pristojne velicine koje se nalazi unutar poklopca. Pakovanje je cvrsto no poklopac 'dise' (pomjera se desno-lijevo) sto nije najprijatniji osjecaj ali ruku na srce - nikada se nije neocekivano otvorio. Sam puder je dostupan u univerzalnoj nijansi (010 Translucent - blago bjelicaste boje) za koju istinski vjerujem da ce se prilagoditi ako ne svim, onda vecini svijetlih i srednje tamnih nijansi koze. Testirala sam ovu tvrdnju tako sto sam ga koristila i sa svojim Dior Star (dosta svijetla) i YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat (topla srednje tamna nijansa) tecnim podlogama - uz obje funkcionise bez greske. Trajnost ovog pudera je izvanredna, sto je takodjer testirano uz tvrdnju da je ovaj puder i vodootporan. Pruza dosta jak matirajuci efekat tako da njegovo koristenje ogranicavam samo na T-zonu. Uprkos snaznom matiranju koze, ne istice suhocu no ukoliko ga nanesete u vecoj kolicini doista ce oduzeti na dimenziji koze i lica. Ono za sto najvise volim koristiti ovaj puder jeste fiksiranje korektora (uopsteno a pogotovo ispod ociju). Iako su ovo velike rijeci, stojim iza njih - ovaj puder je najbolji od svih koje sam ikada isprobala u segmentu fiksiranja korektora! U tome nema premca posto korektor drzi na mjestu 12h i koliko provodim na poslu. Cak me korektor doceka i kada stignem kuci sa posla - samo blago izblijedi no nikada se ne uvlaci u borice i pregibe. Mislim da je to fantasticna karakteristika! Da li je uistinu vodootporan? Postoji velika sansa da jeste posto u dodiru sa vodom, kapljice samo skliznu sa povrsine (puder uopste ne upija vodu). Samo pogledajte fotografije u sklopu recenzije. Takodjer vrijedi pogledati i listu sastojaka posto otkriva da su talk i kukuruzni skrob odgovorni za matiranje koze, upijajuci sebum i ublazavaju izgled nesavrsenstava teksture koze. Zinc stearate takodjer matira i saastojak je koji pruza vodootpornost puderu. Silica 'zamucuje' nesavrsenstva koze dok ulje suncokreta te vitamini A i E su njezni spram koze i njeguju je. Puder gotovo da nema miris a svih 9g proizvoda je preporucljivo iskoristiti u roku 24 mjeseca, sto mi se cini razumnim. Sve u svemu, ovaj puder u kamenu ima moju toplu preporuku - pogotovo ce biti zgodan za predstojece proljetne toplije dane koji su pred nama.
