Yves Rocher Velvety Loose Powder in Transparence Beige

I don't know, but whenever I put on a liquid foundation, I always set it with a powder. I guess it has to be that way because I have an oily skin even when I used a primer- but sometimes, using a powder foundation over a liquid foundation can be heavy and tends to be cakey, specially in our humid tropical weather and my oily skin. Don't get me wrong, I love how Fanny Serrano's 2-way cake coverage and how it made my face look flawless, but, I feel that sometimes, my skin needs to take a break.

When I brought the Yves Rocher Flawless Finish Fluid Foundation, I also get the corresponding primer, concealer and loose powder a week after. I love this brand. It did not break me out nor cause any allergic reactions on my sensitive skin. I specially love their loose powder. The brand says it's mattifying so it's a must for me. I also love the fact that they have matching shades from primer to liquid foundation to concealer to loose powder. Isn't that great?♥

The coverage is sheer to medium, and it comes with a powder puff which I love. I usually use any powder brush when applying my powder foundation, but with this one, I find that the result is much better if I just pat the puff on my face (learned that technique from Goss Makeup Artist in YouTube).
It did not hide all the redness and all because of its sheerness, but when paired with a fluid foundation, it works great.

I got this for Php750.00 at Yves Rocher, SM Southmall

How about you? What do you use together with your liquid foundation?

'Til next!
