One of my very first Innisfree product is not The Green Tea Seed Serum but this No-Sebum Mineral Powder. Back then I have really oily skin and anything that said ‘matte’ or ‘no-sebum’ suck me into purchasing them automatically. The best part? This Innisfree No-Sebum Mineral Powder is VERY affordable. Like student-budget type of affordable 😀
It is the 10th Year Anniversary of No-Sebum Mineral Powder and Innisfree celebrates it with Limited Edition ‘thank you’ messages on an array of pastel colours and petite cases. If you already have the normal mint green packaging, you might want to get all five of these limited edition packaging for keep sake.
The powder is mini with just 5g product in each case. As cute as it is, one case could last you for very long as the powder are very finely milled. You do not need a lot for the whole face, if you’re into setting whole face makeup. This powder is transparent but because it is in white, you will end up with a white face if you used too much. I tried using this solely to set my under eyes and it is too dry for that purpose. It is afterall a No-Sebum powder. What was I thinking? LOL. Duh Fiona!
For the face, this is one superb powder. I will use more intentionally whenever I am out the whole day as I do not touch up makeup mid of the day. Having said that, I have to becareful not to be too heavy handed with the amount of powder I buff into the skin otherwise I will end up looking like a white ghost. It does comes with a puff, which I appreciate very much. Usually product this affordable does not even have a puff. Thumbs up!
There are five different pastel colour cases with five different messages on the top of the case. Can’t decide? Just buy them all? Psst. It is only RM24 each 😉 . I just found out that besides functioning as powder or as mid-day touch-up powder to remove sebum, you can also use this powder as an eye or nail primer, a dry shampoo, or as an antiperspirant. Say what? Now we all know the other functions.
Thank You (Blue)
Saying “thank you” is the easiest way to show your appreciation. It’s simple, direct, and meaningful no matter the situation. You can say “thank you” to tell someone you appreciate them, but why not show them with an irresistible little treat? Then wherever they go, they will think of you when they touch-up with the No-Sebum Mineral Powder.
Good Luck (Yellow)
Nervousness is inevitable and sometimes words alone are not enough. Help your loved ones ease their nerves with a sweet and simple gesture. Slip them a No-Sebum Mineral Powder with an encouraging message to cheer them on and give them the confidence they need. And if that’s not enough, the mineral powder is very effective in minimising sweat to help them fake it ‘til they make it.
Best Friend Forever (Orange)
Good friends stick with us through thick and thin and what better way to thank them than to declare it to the world with this No-Sebum Mineral Powder. This cute reminder may be small and dainty, but its meaning will speak volumes. Take this chance to show appreciation for their friendship and share the secret to long-lasting makeup.
You Are The Best (Pink)
We often take others for granted even though it’s easy to show people you care. Rewarding your friends with a superlative – “You are the best!” – is a great way to encourage and boost someone’s confidence. This is also a great option for anyone who feels insecure about the condition of their skin. This No-Sebum Mineral Powder could be the solution to their problems and the assurance they need.
Dreams Come True (Purple)
Hard work is an uphill battle and it can be discouraging when we feel like we’ve been stagnant for a while. Acknowledge dear ones’ perseverance and brighten their day with a No-Sebum Mineral Powder to remind them that their dreams will come to pass. You can encourage them to try a new skin care regimen to battle their stress. This mineral powder will control excess sebum to reduce pimples and clear their complexion.
Sorry for the dark, gloomy photos. It was raining all the time last week when I got the parcel with macarons. That was the only day I can take photo otherwise the macarons will go bad 😛
