The Face Shop Span Clear Matte Compact Powder - petal shaped pact

I have oily skin and so I am always on the lookout for shine stopping products out there. My latest purchase in this department is The Face Shop’s Span Clear Matte Compact Powder. It comes in a cute petal shaped pact with a built in mirror and sponge.

At first, I can’t seem to make this powder work on me. Using the sponge that goes with it gets too much of the product which left my face looking cakey for a while. Later on, I learned that the best way to wear this powder is by using a large flat kabuki brush for smooth and even application.

This product does a great job of mattifying my skin which is a good thing, however, it is sometimes so mattifying that it sets down a white cast on my face. Be sure to apply a luminizer or a highlighter on your cheekbones, nose, cupid bow and chin to counter this effect.

While I can really say that this powder is long wearing, reapplying this to my forehead (yes, just the forehead) is necessary after 3 hours. Overall, this is a very decent mattifying powder. When it comes to coverage, it is very sheer but also buildable. I have been using this for a month and so far, I’ve had no skin problems with it even if it has silicone with which I’m somewhat sensitive to. I have this in NB23 which is the darkest color among the very limited shades it has available.
