I got this Buckwheat Loose Powder from SkinFood quite awhile back. Used it a couple of times and plain forgot about it. It’s a fairly fine loose powder with above average oil control. However, as with all loose powder, you’ll need to use it with a foundation or makeup base to get sufficient coverage. So, being lazy, I stopped using it after a few applications. In addition, I was introduced to mineral makeup and found the latter better performing.
It’s been almost a year I stayed off using powder foundation after I discovered mineral makeup. No, I haven’t sworn off it of course. I merely took a break from it. Actually, on and off, I tried putting on powder foundation again but I totally detest that cakey look now. But I was opened to trying brands that are said to give that natural sheer look. Like French-Japanese makeup line Paul and Joe.
I never imagined I would suffer from a breakout from using skincare or makeup but yes, it had to happened. I am suffering from a bout of bad itchy rash on my forehead and under my eye area which is refusing to subside quickly. After examining my skincare routine and makeup, I believe the culprit to be a matt mineral veil from Ferro Cosmetics that I was using for half a day yesterday. This is the second time I’ve used the product. The first time I wore it for a short duration when I was testing the line of makeup and I recalled my forehead being itchy too.
