Little bit about my skin I'm very dry and super sensitive and when I have tried many powders but many left me looking cakey and dry and just very crepey. This one here won my heart because it blurs my pores and it doesn't look dry and gross on my face! However, warning there is pretty bad flashback so I don't recommend this for flash photography! But still a good powder.
This powder really makes your skin look flawless. It does lighten your foundation a tiny bit, but, a touch of bronzer to warm the skin up around the face fixes the problems in a flash, and, it's so beautiful I would still keep it! I've never looked so poreless or "smooth", so I don't mind having to use a touch of bronzer. No shiny breakthrough for over 10 hours, so excellent for women who work long hours, oily skin like me etc. You only need a very tiny amount of product to set your makeup so this product will last a very long time. Very luxurious to use, even the little puff is lovely, the last one I had by Koh is still in perfect shape, that's what beautiful quality it is after so many washings. Superb repeat buy, and I highly recommend!
I purchased this and it's been sitting largely unused in my drawer, and for good reason. For reference, I naturally run extremely dry and sensitive. People often say they are dry or very dry, but there are obviously differing level of dryness and so while this be a delight for those with dry skin, it is not a good fit for those with skin identical to my own.
I didn't like the finish; it felt very flat. I don't wear powders in general as I don't need them or necessarily want them. As a dry gal, I cherish those valuable, previous oils my skin generates, but I did want something to set the eye area that would not add to my dryness. Considering how ingredient-specific I am with regard to research, I should have taken into consideration that the primary ingredient of this powder is talc. My skin and talc do not play nice together. It only servers to further dry me out. If you have sensitivity or an allergy to talc, this is not a powder option for you.
Yes, this does include a form of HA for "hydration", but talc is the primary ingredient so while perhaps HA's presence reduces the amount of dryness one may experience from other powders, but for me, it made zero difference. This felt no different RCMA in my view. This was also an expensive lesson. Beautylish is fantastic about returns and I'm confident that had I expressed my disappointment about purchasing the powder, they'd have gladly refunded me. Instead, I tucked it away in a drawer and forgot about it; it's been quite a while.
I'm writing my review now because with warmer weather and skin that's looking glowy and dewy, I thought I'd give this another go. No...a thousand times no. It settled in every tiny fine line and my eyes are in excellent skin health. It left them looking...sallow..flat. It just didn't please me on any level.
I did discover another Asian powder that is talc-free and that is glorious for setting the eye area. I still do not use powder accept on rare occasion, but when it is wanted or needed,, it's great to know there are other options out there. If you're on medication that dries, acne treatments or anti-aging that dries, if you run dry in general or having maturing skin with parching of the skin, I'd instead pick up something in a talc-free formulation.
I think for combination skin or oily peeps....on those who enjoy a more matte finish, and do not have deeper skin tones, this could easily work well. I feel comfortable with 2 stars based on personal experience. I don't think this is translucent; there is, even with a light hand, a bit of a white cast. You can take that powder and finish down a tad with Fix+, but deeper skin tones, I'd steer clear of this one. I did consider 1 star, but I suppose it can used to spot treat a facial area and it's not as drying as a few other formulations so 2 is where I'm at.
I did notice that if you do not use a very light hand, flashback can occur. Blend...blend..blend...to reduce those chances; which also, is not great for dry skin. Blending just stirs up flakes through microexfoliation so I'll say, " No" to Koh Gen Do.
