Tembisa Maqungu

This powder is amazing, I got it because they didn’t have my shade in the powder I normally use. I was a bit sceptical at 1st because the shade recommended for me seemed darker but to my surprise, it looked better than I anticipated and it leaves this beautiful finish that doesn’t look cakey or like a ghost face. I have combination skin and my parts that are oily where i have to touch up a lot were covered and I didn’t have to walk around with a shiny forehead whilst the rest of my face is perfectly matte. Thumbs up for this amazing powder <33 LOVE LOVE IT!!!

Depends on your skin type


I have very oily skin so this powder does not really work for me even though i use it almost daily simply because it provides that matte finish but the problem is that it doesn’t last on me. I have to reapply it every 2 hours or my face just looks shinny! I think it would work great on combination or dry skin. If you are too oily like me it is going to be a hassle to keep reapplying. The powder is well priced as well. I usually buy the combo during sales.

Matte Perspective

Zaheera Packery

Matte finish for price conscious make-up users.

My Beauty routine is focused on a good skincare routine, to enhance my features instead of covering it up, hence I am not used to using foundation or powders.
I was, however, keen to try the Revlon translucent powder, hoping to get that finished look you see on beauty consultants.

My first impression on presentation was average. I found the plastic outer packaging a familiar sight over the years as found in many general health and beauty stores, so it did not strike me as exclusive. The packaging really hides the product container itself, which is a plain but elegant black but would suffice as package presentation.

The container opened fairly easy. It was slightly tricky at first to figure out opening the discreet bottom compartment which contains the sponge applicator. The sponge applicator is gorgeous and a good quality; both the look and the softness which makes application of the powder easy. I do however think it should have a mirror, as this would make it versatile in emergency situations for easy use.

My skin is a medium tone, with a warm gold undertone, so I found this product did not suit me, my skin did not look even, and looked dull. This may work better on my complexion over a skin tone corrector, but will also work well on cooler undertones/pale skin. It did clog my pores slightly as well, and I wasn’t too happy with the finish. To be fair, I did receive a few compliments for my skin looking airbrushed, especially in a photo.

The product is matte, so perfect for someone who wants to achieve a Matte finish. I, however, do not like this effect, as I prefer healthy glowing skin.

The product is fairly affordable, however, would be better value for money to a suited skin tone, and a more avid make-up user with a compatible skin tone, who is concerned about price and a fairly decent product.

It is also easily available in most stores, which is convenient for users.
