    has anybody used Clinique perfectly real radiant skin compact before? hows the coverage, does this oxidises and is it okay if i used mufe hd primer/benefit porefessional underneath it? i have oily skin and im currently using skii cellumination essence in foundation with mufe matt loose powder. But it still gets oily and i feel that the makeup is not holding up well for me. thinking of switching foundation and want to go back to 2way powder foundation. Any recommendations? Thanks babes in advance! :D

    anyone bought the Heroine kiss me smooth powder before?

    I saw it at watsons today. I think it's retailing at $23.90.

    the power has 2 shades, and comes in black packaging. there's another one I think for touch ups in white packaging.


    Edit:
    I googled and saw a review + ingredient list posted. hoping to hear more reviews from you girls too =)

    I've used ZA and Majolica previously. ZA was better than Majolica IMO.
    But I don't like Maybelline Angelfit because of the strong smell which was too weird for me.

    I just started using Kose Esprique Precious, and it has very good medium coverage, which is buildable also. It doesn't have great oil-control though.

    So, I'm using ZA Pore Smoother on T-zone, and Esprique's Dramatical Stay Base EX for other areas to keep the foundation on well. If you have any other makeup base, also can use together with 2-way, the results are much much better

    zzprincess - Za used to have these promotions where they have the smaller cases + 1 or 2 powder refills. Casing is such that the powder is on top of the powder puff. It's definitely more compact than the larger one, though the mirror is smaller. They regularly have these promotions so perhaps can wait for the next round. Za refills also fit into MM casings since they're from the same company (Shiseido) but not sure if MM has small casings.

    I hv a qn that I don't know where I sh post it... The ZA compact cover is one that comes w a side to put e sponge. I m looking for a cover case w mirror that does not hv e side to put e sponge, coz I don't use e sponge. I use ZA foundation powder w a brush for application instead. So can anyone advise I can find such a cover case, then I can save some space in my cosmetics pouch.

    I just bought it yesterday, shade #300. The SA recommended me #405 which is suitable for my skin tone. But I worried that it will oxidize on me, thus I bought a shade lighter. It does look natural, like you wearing no foundation. Oil-control is okok only, coverage is light to medium.
    hey girl, how much did you get this for??

    I like Guerlain too Smooth and very finely milled. Not bad, but my favorite is still ZA for the perfect coverage and good staying power!

    any other 2 way to recommend besides ZA?i don't really like to use normal compact foundation as it doesn't give me the medium-full coverage or maybe there is one??

    Nowadays i feel really lazy to use concealor for my acne scars so i prefer heavier coverage powder foundation..my acne scars are pretty obvious. Some reddish n brown marks..

    kny4eva - really depends on the texture of the powder. 2-way cakes are much heavier in texture so they're not meant to be used after LF as this would be foundation overload. Mac Studiofix considered powder that's meant to set LF. If you use this, no need to use another LP/PP.

    mac studio fix powder is considered as a foundation right? Whats the different between this and normal compact powder? Can i use the mac studio fix after applying my LF or should i use compact/pressed powder?
