Mary Kay Translucent Loose Powder Review

7:27:00 AM

Hey ladies, it's been a while since my last post. December is definitely the busiest month for me. Since I have to attend parties and other special occasions this time of year I've been using my Mary Kay Translucent Loose Powder very often. So, I though I'd share my thoughts on this product.

Product Info from Mary Kay
Translucent. Sheer. It’s every woman’s perfect shade.
One universal powder eliminates the need for shade matching.
Feels weightless, natural and velvety soft on skin.
Controls unwanted shine all day.
Provides a sheer, invisible finish on every skin tone to set foundation.
All-new formula contains light-scattering properties designed to help soften the appearance of imperfections for a skin-perfecting finish

Retail Price: Php 800.00
sells for $16.00 in the US

It comes in a sleek plastic tub with a screw-on lid. The packing looks and feels durable enough. So, I feel like this won't break easily if it falls.

here is the label at the back of the tub

Another thing that I really about the packing is, the sifter comes with a rotating lock. You can twist it when you want to get the product out, then twist it back again to lock it. So, you don't have to worry about wasting the powder when it is not in use.

Mary Kay Translucent Powder Swatch when not blended

 The Mary Kay Translucent Powder is not completely matte. It has a little bit of shimmer to it which makes your skin look healthy when it catches the light.

I find that this powder instantly mattifies and sets my liquid foundation. I compared it with my Ben Nye Neutral Set loose powder. Based on quality and performance they are at par with each other, the only difference is the instant glow that the Mary Kay Translucent Powder gives which is visible in person. It doesn't really show in photos.

What I like about it...
* fragrance-free
* excellent packaging with the sifter rotating lock
* matches every skin tone
* feels really light on my skin, like there's nothing on top of my face
* has decent oil control on my normal skin, stays matte for about 4 hours before it starts to fade
* does not settle on fine lines
* it does lessen the appearance of my skin imperfections
* does not leave traces of white powder at all
* no allergies or irritation experienced

What I don't like...
* a little pricey but it works

My rating: 5 / 5 

This is definitely one of the best finishing powders I have tried, so I highly recommend it. If interested, you can buy this through Mary Kay Beauty Consultants.

  1. I like the slight shimmer to it because I prefer a dewey, glowing look compared to a completely matte one so I prefer powders like this which give you the matte finish but makes you look glowing and healthy at the same time. Need to purchase!
