I have normal skin that is prone to getting oily in my T-zone, so mattifying primers and powders are essential for my beauty arsenal. I’ve heard a good deal of good things about the Innisfree No-Sebum Mineral Powder, so I’m really glad to have an opportunity to try it out.
The design is quite simple yet pretty. The packaging is compact and made of light-mint plastic with a screw cap.
It has a distinct fragrance of tea tree.
Volume: 5 g
Country: South Korea.
Under the cap you can find a compact puff that prevents the powder from spilling. It can be used for application, but as for me, it’s not handy, so I prefer a brush for this purpose.
Under the puff there is a traditional plastic sifter that distributes the product. The packaging is standard without any frills.
The powder is finely milled and feels really soft to the touch. It feels a little bit dry when rubbing it between my fingers, but it doesn’t impact the application and spreading on skin.
The powder is white in the package, but it’s translucent in reality. It’s a good option for setting makeup and mattifying skin.
The powder applies in a thin and lightweight coat. Moreover, it is undetectable on my skin. However, it may accentuate your peach fuzz if you apply too much all at once. It doesn’t make my face look made up when I take pictures with a flash.
I apply such powders to my problem areas that are always oily, i.e. to my forehead, nose and chin.
I love using the Innisfree No-Sebum Mineral Powder with my favorite Zoeva #106 Powder Brush.
The powder makes my skin matte right after applying, but not totally matte. The result looks very natural and my skin looks ‘alive.’ I don’t know how it performs against oily skin, but it mattifies my normal skin type very well, though not perfect.
The mattifying effect lasts 4-5 hours on me on a warm day. After a while I get an oily sheen in my T-zone.
The Urban Decay De-Slick Mattifying Powder and Make Up For Ever HD Powder perform better for me, but they cost way more than this one.
Here, I applied the powder to my T-zone and to the Estee Lauder Double Wear Nude Foundation.
The Innisfree No-Sebum Mineral Powder is a good and affordable option. It mattifies normal skin pretty well, but the effect is in my opinion not enough for summer.
It will be great for fall and spring.
I love using it, because I like how it looks. Plus, it doesn’t dry out my skin.
If you are a sucker for Korean cosmetics, I recommend you this product! If you gravitate towards high-end makeup and a better performance, I would advise you try the Urban Decay or MUFE powders.
Price: around $9.
