[Missha] – The Style Fitting Wear Powder Pact

As someone with combo skin, with a particularly oily T Zone, remaining shine free throughout the day is a unicorn goal. So when Q-Depot reached out to me and asked if I wanted to review a powder compact, which promised a silky (not oily) finish I leapt at the chance. The Missha style fitting wear powder pact is recommended for those looking for a light product, which results in a mattifying look. So ticks all my boxes!

For reference I’ve worn this on top of my Urban Decay naked foundation, Bobbie Brown foundation and Iope Cushion. I’ve also tried it a couple of times with my Etude House Cushion. So far it has played nicely with all three of these foundations. You can wear this product on its own, for very light coverage. But I prefer a medium coverage look, to hide my blemishes.

Missha The Style Fitting Wear Powder Pact

Ingredients

Talc, Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Silica, Magnesium Myristate, Nylon-12, Barium Sulfate , Polymethyl Methacrylate, Butyloctyl Salicylate, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Boron Nitride, Methyl Hydrogenated Rosinate, Dimethicone, Triethylhexanoin, Methicone, Iron Oxides, Triethoxycaprylylsilane, Chlorphenesin, Iron Oxides, Caprylyl glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Fragrance, Tropolone, Squalane, Honey Extract, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Fruit Extract , Sambucus Nigra Flower Extract , Althaea Rosea Flower Extract , Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Extract, Hydrogenated Lecithin

Packaging

The style fitting wear powder pact comes in a slim plastic case. It’s a simple, but classy packaging, which would fit into anyone’s handbags/vanity display without being distracting. Similar to most cushions/pacts this comes with a mirror, and the powder puff is kept on a separate plastic base, which flips up to reveal the powder underneath. This is handy for those, like me, looking to re-apply during the day without it being messy.

Product

This is a pressed powder-type base product that claims to offer lightweight coverage, and smooth mattified look. The powder also offers SPF 25/PA++, and sebum controlling properties. While the SPF is a nice bonus, I wouldn’t rely on this powder alone to offer sun protection, as you won’t be applying enough for adequate protection.
Unlike loose powder type products, the pressed powder ensures you don’t end up spilling powder everywhere. I have found it more convenient for topping up during the day discretely while out and about.
It does not have a wide shade range, being available only in two colours, Light Beige and Natural Beige.

Review

This has been a welcome addition to my make up collection, and worked better than I had hoped for. I apply it as the last step in my make up routine, when I’m not using bronzer/highlighter. I’ve found that it helps to “set” my make up, making it last longer during the work day. It’s also adequate at controlling shine, though I have to top up at lunch and during the afternoon. I would say it’s a 2-3 hour control product on my most oily days.
I don’t find that it leaves a pale cast, and it doesn’t clump in the suspect places. But it is noticeable that I have put on powder on top of my foundation when you look closely. When I forgot to moisturise I did get dry patches on my chin. Though this was a combination of my foundation drying up as well.
One thing to point out is that I wait a minute or so for my foundation to dry before applying. As I find if I’m too impatient and apply straight away the powder clumps. Another negative is that the cushion does get dirty quite quickly, and I find cushions a pain to wash compared to brushes.
Overall I would recommend this product to my fellow oily-skinned folk who are looking for an alternative to oil blotting papers. The pressed powder form also makes it less messy to apply than other popular powders like the Innisfree no sebum powder. I don’t think it’s as effective though as controlling shine as the Innisfree.
