As I mentioned in my previous post, my skin has been breaking out terribly over the past few weeks. I am, therefore, trying to go makeup free on most days and have been sticking to just a moisturizer for my face. Unfortunately, my skin still gets very oily throughout the day and I try not to use a face cleanser more than twice daily. This quandary resulted in me fishing through my makeup drawers for a good powder and behold, I came across this gem.
The Palladio Rice Powder in Warm Beige matches my skin tone perfectly and provides a light coverage, while keeping my skin oil free for around 3-4 hours. I apply this to my bare, moisturized skin and this powder blends in perfectly without leaving any white cast or cakiness. I have used this powder previously as a setting powder for my foundation and it performed well in that case as well.
Palladio is an American brand that is well known for the inclusion of natural ingredients and vitamins in their makeup products. The concept of Rice Powder seems to have been inspired by Asian beauty, where rice powder has been used for generations for its blotting properties. The cute little box has an Oriental feel to it; it comes with a puff for application and a mesh based dispenser (which does get a little bit messy at times!). Warm Beige is the darkest shade in this range that also includes a lighter shade as well as a translucent powder. A container of Rice Powder is priced at $7, and Palladio has also introduced Rice Papers for blotting your face on the go.
Have you ever tried any product from this brand? I would love to know about your experiences!
