This loose powder provides flawless coverage and luminous finish on your skin, after you’ve applied your foundation. What I like about this powder is that, compared to loose powders by Clinique and Shiseido, it’s very fine, and does not make your makeup look cakey.
For a luminous finish that minimizes the look of lines and wrinkles.
Special ingredients diffuse light as it hits your skin, creating a “soft-focus” effect that visibly smooths the appearance of your skin.
The loose powder comes with a small puff which is used to apply the powder. The blue container has a plastic cover with holes in it, to prevent overspill of powder (you wouldn’t want too much powder on your skin either; just a light overall sweep will do).
I prefer to very lightly puff my face with powder, and use my face brush to even the application. By sweeping the brush in a downward angle, I “close” the pores, giving my skin a more flawless appearance.
I use Transparent 06; apparently this is a popular choice of colour amongst Malaysians, as they are almost always sold out. I remembered going from one shopping centre to another, to the Estee Lauder counters just to get this particular colour, and more often than not, they were sold out, and I had to wait about 2 to 4 weeks before they restock. I don’t know why they take so long to replenish their stock; it’s best to get the powder when it’s available, and not wait till your supply’s dwindled.
Estee Lauder’s Lucidity Translucent Loose Powder retails at RM120 at all Estee Lauder counters.
What I like about it: The fine powder gives my skin a flawless look, and I do not feel as though I’m wearing anything on my face
What I did not like about it: Malaysian Estee Lauder counters seem to take ages to get the loose powder replenished.
