“ Brand: Invisible Zinc / Type: Foundation / Subcategory: Powder / What it does: Protects „
I have an oily complexion and although I use oil free foundations and mattifying powder, I can still look shiny by the end of the day. I don't want to look caked in make up but I find that I need to use these products. After hearing about it from a friend, I thought I would give the Invisible Staying Powder by Invisible Zinc a whirl.
What does the product do?
The product aims to give a natural finish to your make up that won't make you look caked or heavily made up. It promises that it will help to keep your make up in place and to give your complexion a radiant and fresh faced finish. The product also protects the skin from pollution, toxins and sun damage which would have otherwise caused premature aging.
How do you use the product?
The product is to be applied as a final step after finishing your make up so that it can be set in place. You can use the powder puff included and press it into the powder and then press the make up into the skin all over the face.
Packaing and Price
The product comes contained within a pure white powder which has a screw top lid. There is a powder puff included so that you can apply the product. The product will cost you around £24 so the product doesn't come cheap and it can be bought from a variety of online websites.
Application and Performance
The product looks like a very fine powder which is white in colour but that is translucent on the skin. It is easy to apply to the skin using the provided sponge although there is a little bit of fall out but that is to be expected with a loose powder. It glides over the skin and almost seems to melt into the face leaving no visible trace behind. It feels completely comfortable and hasn't caused me any irritations and it hasn't caused me to develop any blemishes. Despite the colour, it doesn't make my complexion any paler than it already is which I was really pleased about.
It makes my skin feel really soft and smooth, and the product looks completely natural which is a nice change from some of the other powders that I've used. It does help my make up to stay in place for longer and it does seem to keep my shininess away for a bit longer than usual but I am still shiny by the end of the day. It's also a lovely thought to know that my skin is protecting from pollutants and toxins, and also from the sun even though we never really get to see it! It does make my complexion look naturally healthy and radiant.
All in all, I like how this product makes my skin look. It has a natural finish, makes my skin feel soft and it also keeps my make up in place. I have to knock one star off because of the price but it is a really lovely product.
