It’s the wet season here in Singapore but it never really gets cold. So being someone with combination skin, it’s always difficult to keep my skin matte. Moreover, as I age, I try to find powders that won’t look cakey which tends to happen when you pat powder on your face over and over in attempt to mattify the skin. Cezanne’s UV Silk Face Powder was like a God-sent from makeup heaven because not only is it oil-absorbing with 10 moisturizing ingredients, it covers pores with a gentle dab, is light-weight and affordable. And did I mention that it includes SPF 28 PA+++ too? Tell me how is it not a God-sent product?The Cezanne UV Silk Face Powder comes in three shades – P1 (Lavender), 01 (Light), 02 (Natural). Japanese products, as I have mentioned in previous posts, are amazing because most of the ones I’ve tried always give the best of quality without causing a hole in my wallet. The only complain I have with powders especially is that they tend to cater to lighter skin tones. I’m glad that Cezanne sent me their new shade, P1 (Lavender), to try. Don’t worry, Lavender won’t make your face turn purple, in fact it neutralizes the tone of your skin. But do take note that the best way to apply it is by pressing it lightly with the puff provided over your complete makeup with little amount to give you that beautiful sheer finish. I won’t recommed using a powder brush on this one as it will make you look like a ghost especially with the lavender shade and more so if you’re of a darker shade like me! I bring it around as a blotting powder and simply pat it on my cheekbones and nose whenever it gets oily. A little really goes a long way with this one.
