MeMeMe Review Week*: Flawless Loose Powder

Thursday, June 18, 2015

Hello ladies, 
since yesterday I talked about the MeMeMe Correct & Perfect Concealer KitI thought it would be great to continue with another face product; their Flawless Loose Powder.

Pozdravljene punce, 
danes nadaljujemo z oceno še enega MeMeMe izdelka, njihovega Flawless pudra v prahu.
Upam, da ste do sedaj z veseljem prebirale ocene tega tematskega tedna.


MeMeMe Review Week
 For a final faultless finish, this micro-fine translucent powder contains light-diffusing pigments to mattify your complexion and create a flawless soft-focus effect finish.
You get 12g / 0.42 oz. product and it retails for 11,36€ on Moja Drogerija or for £6.50 on MeMeMe site for my international readers. It only comes in one shade, translucent. 
Also, one thing I forgot to mention at the beginning of the week and it might interested you is that none of these products are tested on animals.

MeMeMe puder v prahu naj bi ohranil mat izglede kože cel dan! Na voljo je v enem odtenku, translucent, v posodici dobimo 12g izdelka, kupimo pa ga lahko preko Moje Drogerije za 11,36€.
Še en podatek, ki sem ga pozabila omeniti na samem začetku tega tedna; nobeden izmed MeMeMe izdelkov ni testiran na živalih.

MeMeMe Flawless Loose Powder
 Packaging is once more, very aesthetically pleasing. It comes in a plastic pot that has their signature black matte lid and a see-through matte bottom. The opening ''holes'' are quite large so getting a desired amount of loose powder without creating a mess is quite a task, but that's something that happens with the majority of loose powders. 
It also comes with a really soft puff that feels nice on the skin, but I won't ever really use it, since I prefer applying my powders with a brush.

Samo pakiranje je zopet zelo estetsko. Puder v prahu se nahaja v plastični posodici, ki ima značilen mat črni pokrovček, ta pa ima tudi mat spodnji del v katerem se nahaja sam puder v prahu. Odprtine na plastičnem situ so dokaj velike, zato ni pretiranega nadzora nad doziranjem količine pudra, kar pa je tako ali tako značilno za večino pudrov v prahu.
Skupaj s pudrom v prahu dobimo tudi mehko gobico za nanos le-tega, a je sama najverjetneje ne bom uporabljala, ker mi je nanos s čopiči veliko ljubši. Kljub temu pa se gobica zdi dobro narejena in prijetno mehka na koži.

MeMeMe Flawless Loose Powder
 Although the shade claims to be translucent I wouldn't really agree, as it does have a noticeable yellow tint to it (see on photos above & below). It kinda looks like a light banana powder. The shade of this one is actually a bit darker and more yellow than the one in the Correct & Perfect Concealer Kit (on the swatches below), which once again means, that I have to be careful not to apply to much of it, as otherwise I do get a yellow-ish overcast on my skin.
But it does has an amazing consistency; it's very finely milled (their claim about being micro-fine is definitely true), it's smooth and makes your skin look matte, but not completely flat. I would say it gives a natural, satin finish to your skin, which I really like.
 The pores are also minimized and the skin feels really soft on the touch, but it's not completely dried up or powdery-looking (this is something that recently started happening to me with the Essence All about matt! Fixing loose powder). Compared to that one, MeMeMe loose powder also feels a lot smoother and softer on the touch. 
My favourite way to apply it is with a large brush, like Real Techniques Blush Brush or EcoTools Domed Bronzer Brush and once I get the powder on a brush, I tend to swirl it around inside the lid to get the powder evenly all over the brush & then I tap off any excess before applying it to my face. In this way I only get a light layer of powder on my skin without it looking noticeable yellow.

Čeprav bi ta odtenek naj bil translucent, se jaz s tem ne bi strinjala, saj ima zelo opazen rumenkast ten (to lahko vidite tudi sami na fotografijah zgoraj in spodaj). Sama bi rekla, da je odtenek malce podoben tistim zelo znanim banana pudrom v prahu, na swatchih spodaj pa lahko vidite tudi, da je ta puder v prahu celo malce temnejši in bolj rumenkast kot njihov puder v prahu v Correct & Perfect korektorju
To zopet pomeni, da moram pri samem nanosu biti pozorna, in uporabiti le tanko plast.
Ima pa tudi ta puder v prahu krasno teksturo; zopet je zelo fino ''zmlet'', kar ga naredi zelo gladkega in mehkega na dotik. Koži da prekrasen naraven finiš, ki ni pretirano matirajoč, zato koža ne izgleda preveč izsušena in pudrasta (kar se mi je pred kratkim začelo dogajati z Essence All about matt! Fixing pudru v prahu). Tudi same pore uspe lepo prikriti.
Jaz ga najraje nanesem z Real Techniques Blush čopičem ali pa z EcoTools Domed Bronzer čopičem, saj se na ta način izognem rumenkastemu tenu na koži. Preden puder nanesem na obraz čopič parkrat zavrtim po notranjosti pokrovčka, da se puder lepo razproredi po celotnem čopiču, nato pa iz njega narahlo stresem še morebitni odvečni puder. To mi omogoča, da na obraz nanesem ravno pravšnjo količino izdelka.

MeMeMe Flawless Loose Powder, Swatches
One thing that really surprised me was the fact that it has tiny specks of shimmers in it. I first thought that I maybe used a dirty brush and transferred some glitter onto the lid with it, but I actually went & opened the plastic part and there are definitely specks of shimmers in the loose powder. I find this quite interesting, as the shimmer doesn't really transfers  / isn't visible on the skin. 

The thing that I like most about it, other than the lovely finish, is the fact that this loose powder manages to keep the oils at bay all day long and that's pretty impressive for me. If they came out with another, more pinkish or white shade, this would be up there with my favourite setting powder.

Presenetilo pa me je dejstvo, da puder v prahu vsebuje majhne bleščice. Najprej sem le-te opazila na plastičnem situ, zato sem mislila, da sem le-te mogoče tja prenesla z uporabo kakšnega že uporabljenega čopiča, a ko sem ta plastični pokrovček odprla, sem videla, da tudi sam puder v prahu vsebuje polno majhnih bleščic. A naj vas to ne odvrne od nakupa, saj se bleščice s čopičem ne prenesejo na obraz, in jih na koži ne boste opazile.

Poleg samega finiša, me je najbolj navdušilo to, da moja koža s tem pudrom v prahu dejansko ostane matirana skozi celoten dan, kar je zame vedno ogromen plus. Če bi bil na voljo še kakšen odtenek z bolj roza ali belim tenom, bi ta puder v prahu postal resni tekmovalec za moj najljubši ''setting'' puder.

So if you're looking for something that will set your foundation really nicely & will keep your face matte but not flat or dry, and as a bonus also have some yellow undertones to your skin, I think you would really love this MeMeMe Flawless Loose Powder.

MeMeMe Flawless puder v prahu bi priporočila vsem, ki iščete puder, ki bo vašo kožo lepo matiral, brez da bi jo preveč izsušil ali izgledal zelo opazno. V kolikor imate kožo z rumenkastim podtonom, vam bo puder najverjetneje še toliko bolj všeč.

Have you tried this yet? What's your favourite setting powder?

  1. Jaz sem tudi opazila, da ima tale puder malce rumenkast podton, ampak meni dejansko to ustreza. Res naredi krasen zaključni finiš, ampak meni pa malce je poudarjal suhe dele. Sicer nič katastrofalnega, kar bi mu štela v minus, ker gre drugače res za krasen puder. :D
