Japan loves it’s limited or seasonal goods and products and today I am introducing you to one of them : Snow Beauty II Face Powder by Maquillage.
This powder gained a lot of popularity last year because of it’s fantastic quality and wonderful product design, so Shiseido decided to release a renewed version of it this year – it actually was just released on September 21.!
I was super lucky to be chosen as a monitor for Snow Beauty by Soen Magazine, so I received my ice crystal covered compact in the end of July to test and review it, and as I already mentioned in this video I uploaded a while ago, I absolutely love this powder! → Click here to see what the other girls thought of it!
It is advertised as a facial essence powder rather than just a make up product, which means that it is supposed to be good for your skin and won’t clog it up like some other powders do. I was a little sceptical at first, because it is also recommended to use the powder in the evening to set your facial essence to be better absorbed into your skin. So I powder my face after I took off all my make up? I didn’t really like this idea, but I tested it anyway and loved the outcome! When I woke up in the morning, my face silky soft and smooth – not the weird oily mess I am used to seeing in the mirror!
Other than that I use it for the obvious, over my foundation. As the powder is translucent (even though it will appear super white and light at first) I lately found it works best over my Etude House BB Cream or my Summer favourite YSL foundation, and even though I still used a setting powder in my video a while ago, I skip that now and just use Snow Beauty II right over my foundation. I found that it won’t dry out my face as much as the setting powder did.
And lastly : just look at it? Isn’t it the cutest package design you have ever seen? I feel as if I should transform into Let it go singing Elsa any moment I touch it!
EDIT : I think it is sold out everywhere right now. But I found a seller on Amazon!
