Tried & Tested : Bourjois Eclat Mineral Pressed Powder

By Secret lovechild · December 16, 2010 · 0 Comments ·

 

This powder claims to have mineral quartz to boost radiance, purified mineral pigments for luminous shades and is ultra fine mattifying mineral powder.

I thought this powder was interesting because the inside looks like a Mac Msf

It has a slightly raised bump.

It says on the back

" A blend of minerals for an even, matt and radiant complexion. Mineral quartz to boost radiance, purified mineral pigments for luminous shades, ultra-fine mattifying powder "

I cant recall the price, it must have been something like $30-$38.

Anyways, I bought this powder because it promised to not look powdery when setting makeup. In every aspect, it won me over the Mac Msf Natural except for the scent.

It has a SUUUPER strong floral scent that can be quite off-putting. Once you open it, you can smell it from a distance away.

It looks very peachy but actually is quite translucent. It is extremely fine, finer than Mac Msf Natural, sometimes I feel the Msf has a gritty feeling to it.

With this powder, no matter how much you put on, you will never look cakey, maybe because the powder is extremely fine and it is a mineral powder so it blends into the skin so well when you buff it in.

And among all my powders, this powder sets my makeup faster than any powder. Alot of powders I have take quite some time to set my makeup, and my face normally still feels tacky but not this powder and staying power is far superior than others.

I'm quite surprised that not many people have given much credit to this powder because it seems like a hidden gem!

All in all, a great great powder for setting makeup and coverage for such a fine powder is low-medium. I know some people want powders with high coverage but keep in mind, if a powder offers high coverage, it often looks mask-like on the face and can feel heavy and cakey.

Till next time!

XOXO
