Hi Lovely People,
I received a different product from this brand in my monthly subscription of some beauty products. I liked that quite well and was looking for a pressed powder which controls the oil on the face. Though I couldn’t find that from this brand but ended up ordering this loose powder in a bigger pack after trying the sample.
Product description and how to use:
Rice Powder has been used for generations and is known for its oil-absorbing properties. Known for its ability to help makeup last longer and leave a silky finish on the skin, Rice Powder can be used alone or to set makeup. Rice Powder is the refined starch from rice, known as Oryza Sativa. The powder of rice has been used for centuries in the ancient art of Ayurveda, a holistic healing practice, helping soothe inflamed skin. It is considered an emollient rich skin treatment.
Price: Rs. 550, offer price Rs. 330 for 17 gms…yayyyy!!
It comes in a small square box which looks like it can be carried around easily. I like the drawing on the cover.
My experience with Palladio Rice Powder:
I have a fair, sensitive and combination skin with oily T-zone. This shade is the most natural among the 3 shades the brand offers. This is basically a rice-based powder used by Chinese women to control shine and mattify the skin. That’s exactly why we see a Chinese woman’s drawing on the cover. This is powder perfection! I love it and it doesn’t break me out amd covers the skin very nicely. It effectively controls shine and mattifies the skin. It has a delicate scent and doesn’t irritate the nose at all. I use it both alone and to set makeup. The powder is very smooth and finely milled such that it will fill every open pore on the face, thereby controlling oil . The results last almost all day. I hate to do touch ups and this definitely gives me that comfort.
The packaging is awful and the puff is useless and very annoying. So I used a blush brush earlier to swirl it in. Now I have transferred it into a empty container which was again a from loose powder but from a different brand. This way it becomes travel-friendly without the mess.
The good part of Palladio Rice Powder:
• Controls oil for long hours.
• Mattifies the skin.
• Powder is soft.
• The powder supply seems to be endless so you get a lot of product for the price.
• Value for money.
The not so good part of Palladio Rice Powder:
• I wish it were a pressed powder because the packaging is awful and the stiff puff provided is useless.
• Not travel friendly at all, the lid would come off easily and if tousled around in the bag.
• Needs to be used with a lot of care, if not the product will be fly everywhere in the air.
• Contains parabens.
• The manufacturing date and expiry date is missing.
Would I recommend Palladio Rice Powder?
Would I repurchase Palladio Rice Powder?
Yes, but not very soon as I already have 2 of these.
Thank you for reading!!
