Product Review: Face Of Australia Loose Powder

Until very recently, I had come to the solid conclusion that The Body Shop loose powder would take reign as my holy grail of loose powder. Enter the Face Of Australia Loose Powder in Outback Translucent. After I started using this powder, it took me a little while to figure out why my makeup was looking so much better and lasting longer throughout the day. And then I realised that I hadn’t changed anything else in my basic face routine except for the powder. (And yes, I have been wearing this face powder every day since making that discovery…) The powder is lightweight, finely milled and the shade Outback Translucent is perfect for those with super fair skin like myself. I must admit that the packaging is not ideal, as with most powders housed in this sort of jar all of the product seems to migrate to the top section of the container which can make for a whole lot of mess when you twist the top off. To combat this I would suggest leaving the plastic seal on the inner lid and cutting a small section of the seal off, or poking a few of the holes open with a pin to stop too much product escaping. All in all this product is great value for money, as the Face of Australia Loose Powder in Outback Translucent retails for $11.95 AUD and it really seems like this powder will last a lifetime. Check the Face of Australia website for a stockist near you. (note: I was sent this product for consideration for review)
