Coloressence High Definition Powder

The packaging is like most L’Oreal blushes and mineral powders. It has that very cute brush which does a fair job in applying the powder evenly on the face. It works the best when applied in circular motion. One might end up taking too much of powder on the brush, very little is sufficient. If extra amount of the powder is applied, then the face starts to look chalky and white and I totally don’t understand that part of it.

I am eyeing a lot of loose powders from the above, first of all I want to try the bourjois ones, which loose powders do you own and would like to try?:)

  2. Neha nice post! I am clueless about loose powders. Would pick one from the list. Would have been more helpful if the prices were given in the main post. That way, we could eliminate the ones out of budget right away and look into others.

  3. I love compilation post !! I did try searching for loose powder few days back and bought Lakme..then I ended up buying Lakme and I like it ..May try others once it is over[god knows when 😛 ]
    Thanks for this lovely post *haan ji*

  4. Hi All,

    I am not using any loosed powder now , can you suggest some good powder which gives light coverage to my face, whenever i use compacts it makes my faces looks oily or dark.

  5. I am presently using Elizabeth Arden and also for the first time and it’s AMAZING *happydance*, it instantly gives that light and luminous look. It definitely gets your skin noticed *haan ji* .
    Last used loose powder was Lakme, long back, but didn’t excite me much.
