Review: Face of Australia Translucent Loose Powder

Happy Saturday!!! Today I will be reviewing Face of Australia Translucent Loose Powder*. I've always set my foundation or BB cream in powder. I like how after you apply powder your face feels smoother and less sticky which also helps your make up lasts longer too! 

According to FOA "This finely ground, translucent face powder enables you to achieve a professional finish to your make-up application. The refined textured powder controls shine and helps prevent oil breakthrough whilst adding a hint of colour for a smooth, natural looking complexion."

Sorry no swatches, kinda hard to swatch something that is suppose to be translucent lol

Application: Gently dab your brush in a few times in the powder but not too hard. Apply powder to you face by using light sweeps, concentrate on areas that get oily the quickest such as your nose, forehead, chin and cheeks.

Additional info:
  • Made in Australia
  • RRP $11.95 AUD
  • Availability: Big W, Priceline, pharmacies
  • Not tested on animals

What I like:

  • Powder is very fine and lightweight
  • Looks very natural
  • Lasts all day
  • Takes away the oily shine
  • Matte finish
  • Even though it looks beige in the container, it applies translucent on the skin which is great for any skin tone
  • Value for money

What I dislike:

  • As with any powder, if you're not careful when twisting the lid open, it might get a little messy.

Overall: The good thing with this powder is because it's beige you will rarely get the pale ghostly look when you apply too much on. I used it to set my BB cream because I don't like that dewy shiny look and it lasted all day. A very good product for its price.

What powder do you use to set your makeup?

Thanks for reading!!!

  10. wonderful review. I would get it, because I have a problem with shine!


  11. I used to prefer a very matte look so I was a fan of loose powders to set my make-up. Right now I'm using a Naris Up (Japanese brand) pressed powder - it was a lifesaver for me during Summertime when my dewy bb cream started to look sticky instead!
    Since it's Winter now I'm skipping powder some days because I like a more dewy look.
    Thanks for the review ^^ And thanks for entering my giveaway - good luck!
