Faces Silken Finish Pressed Powder Review

I am glad that I am writing my 50th review though many of the IMBBians have crossed this landmark long ago. This is a very good feel for me.  I wanted to take this opportunity to thank Rati, Sanjeevji, Jomol and Neha. Definitely for their patience, if not for anything else. We see one or two new writers starting every day. They answer each and every one of us sweetly and clearly. I remember asking too many questions in the beginning. Commendable job from your side. Hats off!! IMBB is the best thing that happened to me last year. I am happy to be a part of this family. It is time to move on to the review.

My Take on Faces Silken Finish Pressed Powder:

I wanted to write a favorite product for my 50th post. That’s why, I saved this wonderful product from Faces.  I have used it last summer and quite liked it. Recently, I saw 25% discount for Faces product and decided to have a backup.
The packaging so attractive, perfectly fits the bill. I like the gunmetal case that comes in a black carton. This comes with a mirror and puff for ease of usage. I am not very happy with the puff, but it can be used for touch ups. I liked the button click packing.

Compact Powder 3

I have had this in my hand bag for a long time. I can say it is travel friendly. Overall, nothing to complain as most of the compact puff remain useless, but this one fares a little better.

This comes in 5 shades. Ivory, natural, beige, gold and rose. I chose the shade “natural.” The powder has a very mild fragrance which is not bothersome. The most amazing thing about this powder is its texture. It is smooth and silky, just as the name suggests. It gives sheer to medium coverage. It doesn’t cover large pores and covers small imperfections effectively.  It is extremely lightweight and gives a very natural finish. I should say it gives a very natural glow.

Compact Powder 4

This has a very good staying power. It stays for around 6 hours in the AC environment and around 4 to 5 hours in humid conditions. It controls oily shine on my T zone even in summers.

Compact Powder 5

I have combination skin with oily T zone. It has also not broken me out till date. I do get occasional breakouts.

Compact Powder 6

Pros of Faces Silken Finish Pressed Powder:

  • Smooth texture.
  • Silky finish.
  • Keeps my T zone oil free for good hours.
  • Great for setting foundations.
  • Gives a natural look.
  • Easily blendable.
  • Safe and secure packing.
  • Long lasting.
  • Lightweight.
  • No break outs.
  • Can be used as powder foundation on good skin days.

Compact Powder 7

Cons of Faces Silken Finish Pressed Powder:

  • Puff could have been better.
  • Gives only sheer coverage.

This is a must try for all the oily-skinned and combination skin beauties. Do try it for the natural silky finish it gives. I am sure you won’t be disappointed. I believe it is totally worth the money. This will be my everyday compact for the summers and the days to follow till I find something better
