I’ve decided to write a review about a powder that I’ve been using for 4 years now. We survived everything together: working days and a good deal of holidays.
Moreover, it was a go-to for about 6 months when I was shooting ads for makeup stores. It mattified skin like a dream, which is sooo important in front of the camera.
I guess you understand now that we went through fire and water with this powder So, meet the mattifying Skinfood Peach Sake Silky Finish Powder.
I’m obsessed with this awesome craft design. I’ll use up the contents in about a month, but I’m not ready to throw away the package. I’ll definitely fill it with another product
My mom says that it reminds her of vintage powder of her days. I don’t know how it looked at that time, but it does really look vintage.
Girls, this product is really 4 years old now and I’ve been carrying it around all this time. The other packages would have already looked shabby, but this one look like new.
The only thing is that the colors have faded a little bit. Other than that it looks perfect.
The reason for that is that the package is made of thick cardboard that looks a little bit worn. Therefore everything looks decent even when it’s not new anymore.
On the bottom you can find a sticker with the product description, but everything is written in Korean, so I decided not to take pictures. I doubt that it would be helpful to anybody.
The puff is included, but I use it for keeping the powder safe as well as all the other puffs of various products. I powder with my brushes only.

Now let’s move onto the most interesting part of my review. My experience with the powder:
The powder is finely milled, very dry and looks like starch a little bit. It has the same squeak when you rub it in your hands.
Skinfood Peach Sake Silky Finish Powder mattifies like... for good. At first it even looks odd, but I’m a huge sucker for matte face as most girls with oily skin probably. It’s better to add some glow with specific products than to look like a greasy pancake in an hour.
Mattifies my skin and sets makeup perfectly. When it’s fall or winter, I powder my skin in the morning and evening after work only. It’s enough to look great. In summer I use it 3 or 4 times a day. When I was planning my own wedding, this powder was the first product on my wish list. I trust this powder and know that my makeup will be firm in place if I use it.
This powder is not visible when you take a picture with a flash. Remember all these celebrities on Red Carpet with white stains on their faces? It’s all about tioxide and another ingredient that I don’t remember. And you know what, it doesn’t happen with the Skinfood Peach Sake Silky Finish Powder, because it’s very camera-friendly. By the way, it performs perfectly when we recorded some advertising videos for chain stores. The models were shooting for 7 hours. I powdered them a few times and the result was amazing. Everyone who knows anything about film editing knows how hard it is to remove oily sheen in post-production and how bad the result may look.
The smell was very noticeable at the beginning. It reminded me of a sugary and chemical peach. However, the smell dissipated after a while and now I feel nothing.
It doesn’t give any color to your skin at all.
I wouldn’t use Skinfood Peach Sake Silky Finish Powder for baking techniques. If you apply a thick coat, it whitens and somehow tightens your skin. The feeling is not very nice.
I wouldn’t recommend it to girls with dry to normal skin, because it can dry out your skin and cause peeling. All skin is different, but you should keep it in mind. This product is really strong when it comes to mattifying.
A little goes a long way. I prefer spilling a little bit of the product in the cap and then pick it up with a brush.
That’s how it looks on my face:
Here I have a lightweight BB Cream on that gives a dewy finish, but this powder makes it absolutely matte
Here, I also applied the MARC JACOBS Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara.
All in all, I love the Skinfood Peach Sake Silky Finish Powder and would definitely repurchase it even though I have about 15 other loose powders at home. I don’t feel comfortable without this powder when it’s a special occasion and when my makeup has to be firm in place.
Thanks for reading!
