Get fairness that doesn’t shine, this is Garnier face powder’s tag line. I got mine in 01-Ivory tone.
After the reviews that I have read about Garnier’s anti-eye bags roll on, I got curious about how well their face powder would deliver. When I saw how cheap it was, this one time I was in the mall in search of some pretty discount rugs (swinging by a mall’s beauty section is almost always a given :-P), I couldn’t resist wanting to try it out. By that time, my ever favorite T.LeClerc in Yellow Banane was officially going to say goodbye in a few touch ups. I thought it would not hurt to try a cheaper brand that has received a few good reviews, right? Plus, T.LeClerc is only available in Rustan’s and I was totally in the wrong mall to go look for one. I think I like Garnier’s face powder more than Palladio’s Natural Rice Powder, which is a little more expensive than the former.
A month since I started using Garnier Face Powder, I actually did not break out! Yay! 😀 Somehow, I have expected the cheaper brands to need some “breaking in,” wherein your face actually breaks out in the process. Not this one. So I guess Garnier is a good brand after all. But I still think that no other face powder is as incredibly light and as silky as T.LeClerc. That being said, Garnier still does its job, but I have noticed that when I do touch ups, a few freckles would show on the tip of my nose. It’s either that or I recently have actually developed small, nasty freckles. 🙂
