It’s not difficult to be taken with the cute raspberry pink case of Ettusais Quick Fix Powder (the doily print is très mignon) but at the end of the day, I want the product to work.
And work, it does. This powder gives a smooth finish without looking masky and it doesn’t look cakey when used for touch-ups. I especially like the immediate even-toned appearance it gives my visage. Just this powder over a sunscreen suffices for days when I don’t want too much base makeup on my face but would like a little coverage. In addition, the fluffy puff feels soothing on the skin (a feature of Ettusais products, being an anti-acne brand). The airy puff has a little bounce to it, as well as a cool, pleasant sensation.
Where oil control is concerned, it performs fairly well. In an air-conditioned environment, I need only blot my face within 3-4 hours of wear. More impressively, it managed to stay put despite my face getting rain-sprayed during heavy showers yesterday! (No umbrella is a shield against wind-driven rain. :P)
I’ve been using the press sample I’d been given since I’d written about this powder and am so pleased with its performance that I’m thinking of purchasing a back-up when it launches. It works and is only S$26, after all!
