What is your most used makeup product? Mine's a loose setting powder because I love wearing liquid bases. I have two types of loose powders in hand: 1.) Translucent Finisher: for setting shade- matching liquid face products 2.) Shade- matching Finisher: for setting liquid face bases that are a wee bit lighter than my skin tone. On average, I consume a 20-35g pot in around 4-5 months (that's pretty fast!) that's why I prefer something cheap but with great quality and good coverage-I don't mind if it's a local or foreign brand.
So this is my criteria when choosing pressed powders: 1.) Lightweight 2.) Never cakey and creamy 3.) Has good oil control 4.) Easy to apply and blend 4.) Matches my skin tone (for shade- matching finishers) or does not alter the shade of my foundation at all. (for translucent finishers)
Happily and luckily, I was able to find almost everything I am looking for in a loose powder-shade matching loose powder to be exact-in Snoe's new Poudre Extraordinaire, a tinted loose powder infused with SPF 30 and laced with the protective and healing properties of Acai. Best part is, it's affordable!
My shade is Warm Honey, a shade that can fit girls with NC40-NC42 skin tones. It comes in Vanilla Creme (for NC15-NC20 skin tones) and Perfect Beige (For NC25-NC35 skin tones).

For only P799.00, you get a 35g pot which to me, is A LOT of product. Usually, loose pressed powders only come in 15g pots-maximum is 20g. So before you exclaim "How expensive!", think again.
Comes with a fluffy powder puff. I don't really use it to apply powder. Instead, I've found a better use for it and that is for dusting off excess powder particles from my skin.
Warm Honey is a golden beige shade with a very strong yellow undertone. If some of you are thinking that this powder may make your skin appear sallow, nope, I didn't experience it with this one because the white tint from its SPF content helps tame the strong yellow shade. I've read in one of Bobbi Brown's books that yellow- toned face products are more universal than pink and olive- toned ones. Suffice to say, this may fit a good range of girls with varying undertones but don't take my word for it-It's still best to go to a Snoe stall/store and swatch the product.
When blended evenly
Texture is somewhere in between creamy and dry: It's dry enough to absorb excess oil from my facial surface, and creamy enough to actually make a difference on the tone of my skin. This is the EXACT texture I'm looking for in a tinted loose powder because it doesn't make my makeup look thick and cakey at all.
I like the fact that it has SPF in it-It just saves me a good 3 minutes from applying traditional sunblock on my skin.
I find that it's very easy to blend, and a little goes a long way because the powder is very spreadable. It has a faint floral fragrance, and coverage is medium.

Here's a closer look at the powder. The wonderful texture of the powder gives my skin a sheer, smoothening veil: It evens out my skin's surface and it somehow blurs the appearance of pores.
It has everything I want but it just failed for a little bit in the shade- matching department: If I apply too much of it on my skin, my face tends to give off this slight white cast in pictures because its SPF content is pretty high. What I do is I apply it sparingly with a fluffy brush, and buff it onto my skin until I achieve my desired finish. If it's applied lightly, it delivers perfectly. I use this with liquid bases that are a little light for my skin tone.
It can control oil for as long as 3 hours, and staying power is okay as I find that it tends to fade for a little after a good 5-6 hours of wear. There's nothing that retouching can't do!
In conclusion, I still think that this product is pretty worth purchasing because in terms of size, it's pretty huge and it will last you a long time. Add to that, it looks very natural on the skin, doesn't feel heavy, can be worn alone or on top of a liquid base, and has SPF to shield your skin from the sun. It's a great everyday loose powder that won't put a dent on your atm card.
