Heroine Make Smooth Cover Powder Clear Mineral Review + Swatches
Here's a review on Heroine Make Smooth Cover Powder Clear Mineral.
Bought From: Free
Other Locations: Available in all Watson's and SM Department stores
A couple of years back, blotting powders were pretty much non-existent in drugstore brands, at least locally, until recently. Maybe drugstore brands thought before that their customers wouldn't bother buying a "fancy" product more so something that does not differ too much from the good ol' pressed powder. But times have changed and people clamor for more variety, not to mention the beauty industry is booming and everyone is trying to catch up.
So here's Heroine Make, one of the few drugstore brands I know that offers a setting-cum-blotting powder called Smooth Cover Powder Clear Mineral. The name kind of frustrates you, making you think real hard what it's supposed to do so I'm telling you now, it's a setting/blotting powder!
Let's check out this product below.
HEROINE MAKE SMOOTH COVER POWDER CLEAR MINERAL IN DETAIL
This translucent powder is made to refresh your look by absorbing oil and can even be used as a setting powder. It's formulated with light- reflecting powder to hide enlarged pores for smooth- looking skin and SPF 22 PA++ to protect your skin from the sun.
There's another Heroine Make powder product that looks exactly like this one except that it's in a Black- colored compact and it's called Smooth Cover Powder. What's the diff? The latter is regular pressed powder that comes in about two or three shades (not sure!) whereas this product comes in one shade only.
Product comes in a cute compact, albeit it's too chunky for my liking. The puff that comes with it is very soft, like a marshmallow, and it's so nice to use plus I find that it works well with the texture of the powder.
More about this product after the cut.
This powder has a very fair beige shade. Texture is smooth and quite creamy, making it ideal for dry skin and for smoothing out rough skin patches. It takes away shine in an instant and doesn't look cakey even if you use it without blotting your skin. It has a mild rose scent.

It may look beige in the pan, but this powder comes off as a creamy white shade on the skin.
The powder blends into a semi-translucent finish. The powder has fine shimmer though and if you apply too much, the shimmer becomes a lil' obvious-it's not obvious in this swatch, however, but in person and when it's on the face already, it is.
I personally use a powder brush if I'm going to use this product as a setting powder because the powder puff (and all puffs in general) tends to remove the layer of liquid foundation I have on.
This product is not at all 'Clear' as advertised because it yields a white cast due to the SPF content, thus I said it's semi-translucent only. Oil control is pretty decent at three hours, but I could imagine that it would be less for those with really oily skin.
To sum up this review, I would say that it's an okay product, especially if you're looking for a decent and affordable blotting powder, but it would not be my first choice given the range of really good blotting powders I have tried. I also wish that oil control is longer, but if you have dry skin or combination oily/dry skin, this is a really nice blotting powder to try because its texture suits such skin types.
