Catrice Nude Illusion Loose Powder | Lenne Zulkiflly

Growing up with oily skin type, a mattifying powder is a must for me. I have never reviewed a face powder on my blog before. It's not that I don't use it. In fact, I do use one whenever I wear makeup. I always use the same powder for a long time, it's hard for me to switch it up because I'm pretty loyal. Haha! The moment I saw that Catrice would come out with a loose powder that doesn't break the bank - it's only MYR23, I knew I must grab it and glad that I did!

Update: It's freaking MYR27 now.

Product description 
The transparent, loose powder with a soft-focus effect provides all skin types with a long lasting matte effect. The micro fine powder particles absorbs excess oil and ensure a matte effect without drying out your skin. For a smooth and flawless complexion. Can also be used to set makeup. Available as a transparent powder - universally suitable for every skin tone and type.

Packaging
This powder comes in a simple yet high quality plastic tube, I believe. It's a container with a see-through/ transparent sides so you can see the remaining powder. So that's a plus. The size is not too big and not too small, just right and travel-friendly. Inside, there is a plate with holes that is attached to the tube for easy dispensing of the product.

My experience using the Catrice Nude Illusion Loose Powder 
The powder is white but when applied to the skin it becomes clear. I have a medium tanned skin but this powder doesn't look white on me, at least I don't look like a ghost. Haha! I have an oily skin type, with the usage of this powder, it mattifyes my skin and the fact that I'm able to control the shine for at least 6 hours really 'wowed' me.

It stays true to the claims. That's always a thumbs up. It doesn't exaggerate my pores as well, which is great! Just bear in mind that this powder has a fragrance to it and it lingers on for quite awhile.

However, this powder is not the most finely mild and refined powder I have ever used and if you're looking for a more refined powder, this product is not for you. The moment I swatched it on the back of my hand, I can tell that it's not that refined and buttery. I can get away with it, I'm totally fine but some people take it as their concern. I don't mind it because it's still a good product after all and it's cheap.

Pros:
  • Suitable for all skin tones and types
  • Doesn't leave a white cast
  • Blends easily 
  • Doesn't look cakey
  • Matte finish 
  • Controls oil for at least 6 hours
  • Doesn't exaggerate pores
  • Travel-friendly 
  • Budget-friendly
  • Easily accessible

Cons:
  • Contains paraben
  • Contains fragrance 

All in all, this is a great product and I believe suitable for every day wear. It gets the job done and I'm pleasantly surprised with the quality of this powder. Definitely would repurchase it and I would surely recommend it if you are looking for a loose powder that deserves a shot and would not hurt the bank :)
