Review: Skin Food Buckwheat Loose Powder

by - January 30, 2017

Looking for the perfect powder for oily skin is tricky. Most of the time, the powder will be off, leaving your skin looking greasy and shiny. In my case, I prefer to use loose powder instead of compact powder for my oily skin. Let's just say that if I used compact powder to set off my makeup, then my face will start to look oily in three or four hours, it definitely won't last all day.

One of the loose powder that I've been using for the last couple of months is Skin Food Buckwheat Loose Powder, this is actually not a new product from Skin Food, I believe they have been selling this for couple of years now. This product is also available at Miss Lie Collection.
 The product itself comes in a pretty big jar which is going to last you for couple of months, they also include a puff in it, though I prefer to use my beauty blender to apply my powder.

They have 4 selection of shades: #10 Transparent, #21 Light Beige, #23 Natural Beige, #40 Lavender. And the one I'm using is no. 21 Light Beige because my skin is pale at this moment.
 I usually close off the lid, take out the puff, put the lid back on, then turn the jar 180 degree, gently tap the bottom couple times, and take the powder from the lid using my beauty blender.

Tips for oily skin:
I think beauty blender is the best tool to put on makeup, especially powder, because you need to pat on the powder onto your skin carefully especially the T-zone. Beauty blender takes the right amount of product, I never leave the house with cakey face, I told you!
So this is how I apply it on my face:
Left: Skin Food Buckwheat Loose Powder is freshly applied after BB Cream
Right: Full makeup on after 8 hours

As you can see from the photo above, my mascara might smudge but my skin still looks nice, it's not completely matte but it's still in good shape for my super oily skin. This powder never breaks me out too, so that's another plus. I totally recommend this product for oily, combination, or acne-prone skin.

You can get this, or basically any other Skin Food products at Miss Lie Collection, my favorite online beauty store. Make sure to use 'BEAUTYAPPETITE' when checking out for free shipping (for Indonesia residents only).
