Review : Skinfood Salmon Darkcircle Brightening Powder

Product Info from Skinfood:
A dark circle concealing powder containing salmon oil and micro beads brightening powder to brighten tired eye area.

TO USE: Use after Salmon Darkcircle concealer cream using the enclosed puff, apply elaborately onto dark circles around the eyes.

RETAIL PRICE: Php 900+ at Skinfood stores. Bought it in Ebay for Php 470.

WEIGHT: 2.5 grams

SHADES : Available in only 1 shade.


PROS:
* cute packaging
* powder is finely milled
* i love the smell!
* a little amount goes a long way
* does not settle into fine lines
* puff is soft


CONS:
* expensive
* didn't really brighten my undereye area =(

TIPS:
After applying concealer, use provided puff or a fluffy eye brush to apply powder. Use only a little amount to prevent concealer from caking.


ADDICTION FACTOR:
I'm disappointed with this... a waste of money IMO. I prefer using Ben Nye's Banana Visage Poudre to set my concealer & foundation =P

My other favorite product is Ellana's Multi-purpose shadow in Hush (now on my 3rd pot). It is a matte beige shade that can be used as eyeshadow base to even out your lid color before using eyeshadow or as an undereye brightener.



RATING : 2/5

I don't know why but the powder did not catch my interest, I'm glad I did not purchase this since you said it didn't brighten up the eye area much :)

this little jar is actually quite expensive @_@

its a pity that it doesnt work for you =(

Pammy said...

Oh no, so sad it didn't work for you as much as it did for me. :( But I think it's the other way around naman for the salmon concealer. It didn't work for me but it does work for you. :)

So happy you made this review, I've been eyeing to get the Brightening Powder from them since I already have their Concealer Cream. Now I can save some money and forget about this product. Thanks!
