Belated many happy returns of the day Rati. Loved the London pics a lot! I so loved the NYX Budapest lip stain on you, I am planning to pick it up soon. Coming to this review, I have extremely oily eyelids and anything I apply on my eyes smudges like hell. I am on the constant lookout for tips and tricks to sort my problem. I have also stopped using Kaya Brightening and Firming Eye Cream these days to see whether that would help me with this issue. It occurred to me that a magic product named loose powder could be of some help here. I googled IMBB and found some nice articles and reviews here and here. I zeroed on the brands MAC and Vichy and went shopping over the weekend to set myself free from the oily eyelid zone. Before reaching the MAC stores, I decided to glance towards the latest products at Inglot that hit the stores. My eyes soon set on the loose powder tester present there and I picked up the smallest of them all. The SA said that there were 9 variants available of the same and in 2 different sizes. She suggested #212 to me.

My Experience with Inglot Translucent Loose Powder:
My only experience with loose powders till now has been with Revlon Bare Lustrous Powder. That was way back and I have only used pressed powder till now. I was fascinated with loose powders from some time and it was on my to-buy list. My main intent was to matte out my eye area as I didn’t feel a huge need of the same for my face and hence I picked the smallest of the sizes available.
Inglot Translucent Loose powder 212 comes in a cute black round plastic tub packaging. It has a twist type of cap which opens to a transparent inner lid which has a few small holes to eject the powder of the tub without any wastage. There is also a small white-colored puff for application, which is the cutest part. As I am more inclined to use brushes, I intend to keep this puff as a beauty object only in my makeup vanity. The loose powder is of light brown color and matches my skin perfectly. It’s made of very fine talc which has a smooth finish and absorbs into the skin easily giving a nice matte effect.
I use it on my face after all makeup to control the oily look and tender a neat and fabulous finish. On my eyes, I use it after the eye base, on the lids, to get a neat canvas for my eyeshadows to play on. I also apply them below my eyes to stop the kohl from spreading and also to control the greasiness in that area. I have noticed that I can do a slight touch up after 4 to 5 hours if required for a long-lasting effect. As I have super oily eyelids, I prefer to carry this small tub in my purse. All I need while doing a touch up is to swirl a bit of this powder on my face and touch up my lipstick and I am done. It’s my first product from Inglot and I love it a lot. Also, it has so many variants to suit different complexions. The packaging is small and travel friendly and accompanies me everywhere these days.
