This dual purpose powder foundation can be used dry for light coverage and wet for heavy coverage, and as your main base or for touch-ups. It promises to deliver a matte finish and conditions skin with plant- derived oil ingredients, and comes in 9 shades.
052 is a warm beige shade with an Olive undertone-this is the darkest shade that we have locally and I find it a tad bit light for me, but manageable. Shade selection of this product is not impressive though as the shades don't have a progression-it's like one shade is too light and the next one is too dark already, plus the undertones for the shades are either in pink or olive.
Texture is smooth and semi- creamy, and finish is semi- matte. It is unscented and looks good whether applied using a powder brush or sponge-quality of this powder is comparable to MAC's Studio Fix Powder Foundation.
When applied dry, this product yields light to medium coverage. That said, if you have really dark marks on your skin, you will need to use it with a concealer.
this powder base by body shop is great for oily to combination skin but not too friendly for all you dry skinned beauties. its a mineral based product with a rather matte and velvety finish. its comes like a compact with a puff to apply. its very travel friendly . its not all the long lasting without a setting spray. dupes? revlon insta fix. my skin is rather acne prone and sensitive and for that this product does a great job keeping my skin happy. one can easily apply this using the puff given but blending this is an issue. its not too full coverage. for the price, the question arises is it really worth it? rs 1295 to be precise. ive seen more expensive products and hence this is in the medium price range. should you buy it? if you are body shop lover. . . . then yes. if not.. there are better ones out there.
