Paese Cosmetics Bamboo Silk Powder

Hello guys, 

I seem to be on a roll this week, I’ve had a post every day since Sunday and I even have one scheduled for tomorrow so keep your eyes peeled. I have been using this powder for the past couple of weeks, only on my t-zone as it is the oiliest part of my face and I can safely say it is becoming a firm staple in my makeup bag. Before I delve into a full blown review, I will let you know a little about the company and powder itself.

I am going to be honest, I have never heard of this brand but when Mags over at Monmag decided to send it to me, I thought it would be rude not to have a little go to see how it fared with the rest of the powders in my collection. Paese is an award winning Polish cosmetics brand and their mission was to create products for woman full of colour, beauty and happiness. They offer a full range of products from primers to foundations, nail varnishes and everything in between at very affordable prices. The item I was sent was the Paese Bamboo Silk Powder* (£9.99) which is a loose transparent powder that promises to deliver a long lasting matte finish and a subtle glow for oily and combination skin without clogging pores. It is supposed to offer antibacterial and healing properties as well as regulating the production of sebum (oils). It also claims to reduce the visibility of wrinkles and fine lines. The way this powder is used is by applying it to the oily sections of your face for a matte finish.

I am in love guys; this is such a great herbal alternative to those talc based powders that we have become accustomed to. I apply to my t-zone only, as this is the only oily section of my face that causes the most bother and I have to say, it made my makeup last all day and left me shine free. It didn’t irritate my skin nor did it leave my skin looking “cakey”. The powder has a slight scent to it which isn’t intrusive at all, it’s very mild. It’s transparent so it will match any skin tone and it applies beautifully. Even though it comes with a little pad to apply, I have been using my limited edition Real Techniques Duo Fibre Face Brush (limited edition) as I felt it gave a lighter touch and made me feel like I had no powder on my face at all. The only negative point I can make is container it comes in, I don’t like the colander tray inside of loose powders which means you have to pour it out and then apply as I feel it is a nuisance, I would rather this wasn’t part of it to be honest but that isn’t a direct problem with this brand as a lot of brands do this.

If you want a light loose setting powder to help with oily skin then I would whole heartedly recommend picking this up. For £9.99 it is a total bargain and honestly one of the best powders I have ever used. I know I recently put up a review for the Bourjois Healthy Balance Compact (£8.99) and I always bang on about the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder (£3.99) but this blows them out of the water. This is for oily skin only so it’s not for anyone with dry or normal skin so I would keep that in mind.

Have you tried this before? What were your thoughts?
