Klik hier voor de Nederlandse versie. No matter where I go, I never leave the house without my loose translucent powder. I have quite oily skin, so every day it’s just a matter of time until my skin goes from nice and matte and then fresh and dewey to eventually horribly shiny… Depending on the weather and how active I am that can sometimes happen in less than two hours. So reapplying powder several times a day has become a habit for me, and that’s why I always have mattifying powder with me. Recently I’ve been using the Professional Specific Finishing Powder** from the Asian brand XinYiZhui. Time for a review!
I got my new XinYiZhui Professional Specific Finishing Powder from Born Pretty**, an online shop from Singapore. Asian beauty products and the Asian beauty culture in general have always intrigued me, so I was very excited about this product. But since I don’t speak Chinese (shocking!) I didn’t get much information from the description on the box and I didn’t really have an idea what to expect. What an adventure! ;-)
The XinYiZhui Professional Specific Finishing Powder comes in a beautiful big 40 gram jar and you really get quite a lot of product. This amount of powder will definitely last you a long time, even if you have to reapply powder at least once a day like me. The jar is simple, sleek and modern and I really like the design of it. And the big fluffy powder puff that comes with it looks really adorable.
The color of the powder is white. Those who have never worn translucent powder before might feel a little intimidated by that, but don’t worry: the powder turns translucent on the skin and leaves a thin and almost invisible layer. So it doesn’t turn your skin white. The texture of the powder is feathery light and fine, and that results in a lightweight, soft and natural-looking finish.
I use the powder in the morning as a final step after putting on my face make-up, and then again whenever my skin needs mattifying throughout the day. I just shake the jar, dip the powder puff in the product, lightly sweep it over my face, and ta daaaaa, bringing back the matteness like a boss! As far as longevity goes, the XinYiZhui Professional Specific Finishing Powder is very similar to the other two mattifying powders that frequently I use (the MAC Pro translucent setting powder and the Catrice Prime & Fine translucent powder) and it keeps my skin matte just as long as the other two. I don’t understand the ingredient list so I am not sure what exactly is in the powder, but my skin reacts fine to it and that is what matters.
And the price? No complaints there. For just 5.90 USD you get a big 40 gram jar, so that’s definitely good value for money. I’m a fan!
