Heroine Make Smooth Cover Powder
I have a very oily t zone and I can’t walk out the door without needing to pat my skin with some powder to lessen the shine on my face. With regards to brands, there are a few which I trust without feeling the need to google reviews. One of them being Herione makeup. So I bought the heroine make smooth cover powder as my emergency compact.
Here you can see it comes in a sleek black plastic compact and a soft sponge.
There are two shades available. I chose the slightly darker one 02 in natural beige. I do not have dark skin but the fairest shade was far too white! Unfortunately I still find natural beige is very white on my skin, so I would recommend using this powder if you use bronzer or want that very white look.
Here is a shot of my skin. The top photo is my skin with nothing on! And then bottom is when I added the smooth cover powder.I do find there is a slightly white cast.
The powder is said to cover uneven skin tone, absorb excess sebum and is water repellent (caused by sweat e.t.c)
In terms of oil control, I think powder holds well on my cheeks because it is less oily than other areas of my face. However I have yet to find a powder which can keep my nose looking matte all day. The powder on my nose starts looking patchy after a couple of hours and leaves quite a dewy shine. For super oily skin, you will definitely need to touch up after a couple of hours.
I think it’s a nice compact but the colour is not right for me. I will continue to use as an emergency compact to reduce shine if there’s nothing else available.
