L’Oreal Paris White Perfect Pearl Duo Powder Foundation

L’Oreal Paris White Perfect Pearl Duo Powder Foundation Review

Product Description:
New White perfect pearl SPF18/PA++, the first long lasting duo powder foundation with pearly radiance. Enriched with white pearl complex.

Step 1:  Long lasting whitening powder foundation,enriched with a whitening complex with melanin-block and UVA/UVB protection to reveal and protect skin fairness all day.

Step 2:  Pink, light, smooth powder, for an immediate pearly radiance, with white pearl complex for a healthy pearly glow.

The above lines did nothing to make me buy this.  I just went with the packaging and it is one of the very few times that I buy something because of the packaging.

L’Oreal Paris White Perfect Pearl Duo Powder Foundation Review

I got this powder last year at Dubai and I don’t remember the price of this powder anymore, sorry about that.  I got this from a grocery store and SAs were not aware of the shades available and they had a bad stock too. The shade G7 Golden Caramel was the darkest shade available and she said that is the shade for me !!! I was not very sure and they didn’t have a tester too. I was in a hurry and just blindly had to trust the SA and buy this one in the shade Golden Caramel.

The packaging is super trendy in a shiny blue box with a sponge applicator and as mentioned above, there are two powders, one for normal use and the other for a highlighting glow.

L’Oreal Paris White Perfect Pearl Duo Powder Foundation Review

I have dry skin with oily T-zone and I used my usual foundation on top of which I use this. I was like a white ghost, so again, I tried it without the foundation just on my moisturized face. It was pathetic. I was disappointed that it didn’t work for me.  It makes my skin more dry and the whitish cast it leaves is just too bad. The highlighting powder does nothing.  There is no glow and no shine, but makes the skin look worse.

This is something I never expected from this powder.  If you get the right shade that suits you and if you have oily skin, then this might work for you. So, please do try this before you get this and if at all you have dry skin, just forget about it. This is going to make your skin look worse than ever.

Pros of L’Oreal Paris White Perfect Pearl Duo Powder Foundation:

  • Packaging is awesome and it tempts you so much to get one for yourself.
  • It comes with an applicator and mirror, so if you are taking it, no need to worry about a brush or a  mirror.

Cons of L’Oreal Paris White Perfect Pearl Duo Powder Foundation:

  • Leaves a whitish cast on the skin and it does nothing else.
  • Does nothing that it promises.
  • The pink powder makes the skin look worse.
  • If you have dry skin, please throw this in the bin.
  • The applicator does an okay job though it is not great.
  • I doubt the availability in India.

Rating:

1/5

 

Would I Repurchase? – Never. Also from next time I decided not to buy anything in a hurry and get disappointed badly.

This buy taught me
• Not to go for just packaging.
• Not blindly trust the SA’s.
• Not buy anything without trying it.
• Not to buy anything in a hurry.
• Not to buy if you are not very sure of the shade.

  1. Hi Aarthi,

    Too bad it did’t work for you…..I also feel it is very difficult to colour match for my skin.Im an NC43.
    I bought a Loreal true match powder foundation in golden beige , again darkest available and it is working fine for me …..

    :spank: :spank: :spank: for the SA’s who didnt help you out ……

    It is frustrating for me when it is soo difficult to find foundations for skin with a gold/yellow undertone(read indian/southasian skin) 😥 😥 😥 😥 😥 😥 😥 😥
    I have seen more products catering to caucasian as well as African skintones.

  2. Hi guys ,

    I have heard that Chambor foundation goes well with indian skin tones , is that true?
    It is not available here and couldnt find it in Malaysia/Singapore so do you think it is available only in India?

    1. hi supriya……chambor foundation is good for skin tone which is on the fairer side…i cud find a foundation 4 my skin..but at the same time my sister in law cudnt find one in chambor… :))

  3. Thx for your review.. I too had worst experiences like urs.. Never believe all SAs.. And here in saudi, we have got only male SAs.. Most of them do not know anything abt the product.. 🙁

  4. ohhh.. packaging is really nice… if u want, try the compact makeup frm revlon.. tht does a pretty gud job for all skins… :yes: :yes: :yes:
