Review: Lumiere Finishing Powder, Pure Silk

Oily skin has always been a huge problem for me. My face will get oily in just 2 hours after washing my face. It’s even worse when I have makeup on, my face will look so oily like I have a layer of wax on my face! One of my friends was raving about how this product is awesome and holy grail worthy so I decided to pick it up.

Lumiere’s Silk Powder helps maintain moisture levels in the skin, prevent dryness, the crystalline structure reflects UV radiation, and has anti-bacterial properties.

Especially beneficial for oily or disturbed skin as it instantly evens and beautifies skin. Pure Silk is a transparent powder which is specially formulated to disappear into the skin, to reduce the appearance of pores and redness, and even skin tone for a more flawless-looking complexion.

Suitable for all skin types, especially oily skin
Finish – mostly matte, has a soft satin silkiness
Ingredients – real silk powder

Taken from LovingMinerals.com. The powder indeed is fine and light and you just need to tip a bit of the powder on the cover and swirl it with the kabuki brush before buffing it on the face. I’ve had this product for a few months and been testing it on different occasions. I don’t find it holy grail worthy for my face but if I were to put the price in my consideration then this is probably a value for money product.

Firstly, the powder didn’t help with the oil absorption on my face, period. I’ve tested the product with makeup on, without makeup on, when I go outdoors and when I’m indoors. Especially when I’m at work, I find my nose starts to get really oily after 2-3 hours followed by my forehead and cheeks 1-2 hours later but when it comes to dinner or shopping, my face wasn’t as oily as my situation at work BUT STILL OILY *flip table*. I find that only my nose is very oily during those short outings.

I didn’t notice any improvement on my complexion nor do I see my pores shrinking as the product claims. My face still looks as ugly and rough as the moon. I find that it’s especially ineffective sometimes when I’m stressed out, guess my face produces more oil than the silk powder could handle. For RM58 for a 30gm jar, it’s value for money but if your face is as imba as mine, I’d suggest you look for some alternatives.

So Today I Made An Impulsive Buy

This fine Saturday morning, I woke up and decided

I’m going to get a garment vertical steam iron!

Nah just kidding, I’ve been mulling over this for months but I guess today was the so called ‘breaking point’. My costume arrived the day before and I was so worried how to iron it so I guess I decided to get it so that I can settle the ironing for my future projects AND I can iron whenever I want whether it’s 4am in the morning or on-the-go emergency ironing. I won’t need to use the iron in my parents’ room and hear that woman bitch about it.

I no longer dread ironing!!!

Initially I wanted to get it from Jusco but no sales assistant came to attend to me even after waiting for 15minutes so I decided to take my business elsewhere. I love Christmas as they have such good promotions *_*. Phillips has a promo where they’ll be giving out the clothes hanger worth RM99 for FREE with every purchase of the steam iron. The promo applies to all dealers outlets so I can happily take my business elsewhere and still get the hanger for free hur hur.

So I went to Harvey Normal instead and what luck! There’s an additional 10% off for appliances which includes the iron~~~ *sings* Now I can iron whenever I want! >w< I wonder if I can use this as a face steamer too HAHAHA
