My Experience With Faces Ultime Pro Mineral Loose Powder:
Faces Ultime Pro Mineral Loose Powder comes in a very detailed packaging. It has the shape of a small round bowl with a mesh inside it. The cap has the twist-and-lock function with a beaming silver handle on top. Below the silver handle is a sponge, attached in a unique way where you can take it out, wash it and put it back. This is great for hygiene purpose as sponges harbor bacteria with the passage of time and surely requires to be cleaned. I adore the packaging and it is a great one especially when you are traveling. The sponge picks up the right amount, applies on the skin evenly and it is so light weight and fuss free that you won't have any problem with it. Overall, they have done a great job it packaging.
The shade I chose Sand Beige (03) is which one of the deepest one in the range (might be the second last deep shade) and works well with my fair to medium complexion. It has the subtle peach undertones which go well with my skin and doesn't make me look ashy, grey or whitish. I didn't like the shade card because it has literally no shade for dusky or deeper complexion and most of the shades are similar. The powder gives a light to medium coverage on the skin. It is a great setting powder for foundation or CC cream and looks extremely natural. I have tried 'baking method' with this one and it turns out to be so smooth and flawless.
The texture of the powder is fine milled and that it why it feels so great on the skin. Firstly, it is smooth and soft which makes my pores literally disappear, behind a natural and impeccable finish. It never looks cakey or whitish despite having UV filters. However, since they haven't mentioned the SPF, it is almost negligible in my opinion. The loose powder is hypoallergenic and it won't clog the pores causing acne. The powder also has a very good quality that works with every skin type. Even when the skin is dry, it will not accentuate to fine lines or dry patches at all. On the other hand, it takes away all the shine from the skin, making it look naturally matte and healthy. There have been times when I simply applied a sunscreen and this powder and stepped out of the house.
The powder stays for a decent amount of time and controls the oil for about 3-4 hours after which you need touch ups, especially in this humid weather. The only concerning thing for me is the quality which is extremely low. Most of the loose powders in this price range (drugstore ones) come in a minimum of 30-40 g while this one is merely 7 g and will be finished in no time. Therefore, I believe the price tag is a bit excessive compared to the quantity it gives.
