Happy Tuesday everyone! Today I have a review on the innisfree no-sebum mineral pact. I thought to do something non-Colourpop related, but truth is, I can’t wait for their 2015 Fall collection that’s rumoured to be launching sometime this week. YAY! ❤
So in the meantime before I get my hands on them, here’s my thoughts on the innisfree no-sebum mineral pact.
Price: $7.90 on Qoo10 (price ranges from seller to seller)
Packaging: Small mint coloured clamshell pact with mirror, upon opening there’s a sponge puff separated with a plastic sheet from the actual pact.
Scent: Unscented. I was expecting some form of minty scent since the pact says “natural original mint”, but that’s okay.
A closeup of the product. The powder is packed well and is very finely milled to the touch. No fallout, no crumbling, just satiny smooth.
I didn’t take a photo of the product applied on skin, since it’s pretty much transparent. What I will note, is that the powder has the ability to absorb sebum superbly.
I used this the first time at a friend’s wedding. No, I wasn’t there only for the luncheon, I was there throughout the day’s proceedings as a bridesmaid.
I was wearing makeup from 4.30am until well after 4pm.
The pact came in handy for touch-ups and sebum absorption. For the duration of the day my face was not as shiny as compared to not using this. The pact made me feel… refreshed. At least I didn’t feel like my makeup was melting or tacking up, which is a good thing 🙂
I didn’t use the puff that came with the pact. I used my Zoeva buffer, swirled around the pact then applied the powder. I reckon using a brush applies the powder evenly, and doesn’t smear off whatever makeup that you already have on.
My rating: 4.5/5 (Cheap and effective)
This also comes in a loose powder packaging, but I opted for the pressed powder pact after reading other reviews online that the loose powder version can get messy, and is prone to leakage.
Have you been looking for a good anti-sebum product? You may want to try this, it’s cheap and good!
