Loreal Paris Hydra Perfecte Perfecting Loose Powder in Translucent

Hello my beautiful friends..

How are you all doing today? I had been slightly busy and off from IMBB for a while as my baby was not feeling well since 2-3 days fearing mild attack of pneumonia but thankfully her Doctor says she will recover within 2-3 weeks! While she is resting under the influence of her medications I took a break from my crazy schedule as we can only wait for bad times to pass over soon though, still a long way to go before I take a sigh of relief.

Anyways, let me get back to my latest obsession in makeup which is currently tending towards loose powders. Off late I discovered significance of loose powders for oily skin and since then I am beginning love loose powders over pressed powders somehow. I already own another loose powder cum foundation from Smashbox and; after my good experience with the former I decided to try a decent setting powder which sweeps away excess oil and dullness off my face without leaving any cast or made up feel. And I found that this Loreal Hydra Perfecte satisfies my skin concerns quite well though I don’t feel it is one of best loose powders for oily skin beauties in the market. So, please read on further to know more About Loreal Hydra perfecte Perfecting Loose Powder in Translucent..




Price: $8-$12 for 0.5 Oz (14.1 g), price may vary store to store

Product Description: Hydra Perfecte Powder is a light-diffusing loose powder that minimizes pores and enhances skin’s texture. It’s formulated with special moisturizers that nourish and protect your skin.

Packaging: This off white light weight loose powder comes in jar packaging with sieve cap and safety cap along with fluffy sponge applicator. It does have a mild smell which is not overpowering and I like it. It seems user friendly and travel friendly.

Hydra Perfecte powder is available in 4 universal shades: Deep, Light, medium and translucent. Considering my Asian fair skin tone requirements I opted for translucent shade which is best match for my skin tone.



My Experience with Loreal Hydra Perfecte Translucent Loose Powder:

This hydra perfecte powder can be easily blended with sponge applicator and/or powder brush. I often use its sponge applicator for slight sheer and even tone coverage while Sephora mineral powder brush helps me with regular touch ups. Its sponge applicator is not very soft but I dab it gently on skin and it does not bother me that way though it might feel rough upon sweeping on sensitive skin. Moreover, it effectively sweeps away shine off my face without drying or exaggerating my oily skin issues. It does not leave any chalky or ashy cast on my face and I can observe visibly bright and matte skin for good 2-3 hours on my bare skin without using primer and foundation which could have been better though. Whereas when topped over primer and/or foundation it gives me shine free, luminous skin for good 5+ hours.


I am also impressed to notice that it gives me naturally healthy, soft and bright skin texture without leaving any cast over my face. I can feel that it is way mild and gentle on my oily/acne prone skin as I use it more often on my bare skin these days to get rid of shine and oil though I need frequent touch ups but it never dried my skin nor accentuated my open pores. In fact it tones my open pores and makes them appear smaller up to a good extent apart from controlling excess oil.
I believe it might be great for slight dry to combination skin though it works great on my oily, acne prone skin as well except the fact that its staying power on bare skin could have been better.

Over all I feel it works great as setting powder over make up on any type of skin as it seamlessly blends onto skin leaving it bright and oil free for few hours plus it is talc-free which makes it a keeper.

Let’s sum up pros and cons:

Pros of L’Oreal Paris Hydra Perfecte Perfecting Loose Powder in Translucent

 A talc free light weight loose powder which effectively sweeps away excess shine and dullness off face
 It does not rip moisture off skin nor accentuate any dry skin issues
 It works well on oily, acne prone skin without irritating sensitive skin
 When lightly brushed on skin it effectively blends over foundation or primer as setting powder and stays put for good 5+ hours
 It never accentuated my acne prone skin nor dried my sensitive skin at the same time
 It works great as setting powder as it does not leave any ashy or chalky cast on face
 This particular shade translucent can be used on any skin tone or any skin type as it gives “barely there” feel yet effectively controls shine and dullness
 It enhances natural skin tone while imparting healthy glow and even skin tone as it tones open pores up to good extent
 Affordable and travel friendly packaging


Cons of L’Oreal Paris Hydra Perfecte Perfecting Loose Powder in Translucent

• When used on bare skin followed by moisturizer it hardly controls oil for 2-3 hours and might need frequent touch ups
• Oily skin beauties might feel slight oily T zone after 6-8 hours of using it over their face make up however staying power also depends on type of primer and foundation used on the skin
• Its sponge applicator might feel rough
• Its sieve packaging seems messy while application

Over all I don’t have any major issues with this loose powder apart from these minor cons which can be easily ignored except its staying power on oily skin. However considering its price I feel it works great as setting powder. It definitely does what it claims to do up to a good extent. I would definitely like to get it again & again for its soft, luminous and barely there feel. I would give it 4/5 for overall performance including its packaging, universal utility as well!

      1. Aww.. I’m sorry. *puchhi* How is she feeling today?

        Yes, the L’Oreal infallible one – they have two black eyeliners and strangely both are priced differently.

        1. I opted its carbon black n pretty impressd wid same. though i found out that its black noir is also great! If you are looking for intense black liner go for carbon black its superbly intense.. *haan ji*
          n thanx for asking abt my daughter rene.. *puchhi* wid god grace she is improving fast and we all are hopeful to see her fit n fine within week or so. prayers and wishes are working for my gal.. thank you all … *happydance* *happydance*
