Great inexpensive compact powder for oily skin





Every time when my skin is acting out, or I'm not happy with the way other powders look on my face, I reach for Alverde Kompaktpuder. Alverde is natural skin care and makeup brand and this is by far my favourite product from their makeup line. It's paraben and perfume free and contains tourmaline, a silicate mineral classified as semi-precious stone which is known for its amazing properties, for example healing some skin conditions. Brands like Aveda and La Mer use it in their products as well. 
This is one of the best powders I've ever used on my skin, including high-end powders like Shiseido, Lancome and Benefit. Don't get me wrong, all of those are also great, but they have a price tag that obligates them to be great.  
What I like the most about Alverde powder is its texture. It's between dry and creamy, which is the perfect fir for my oily skin. I apply it using a sponge or a brush. Although I prefer using a sponge, you can also get nice looking skin using a brush.
Coverage is light to medium, depending on how much product you use. I don't like a lot of coverage for day looks so it works for me.
After I apply it my skin is mattified and by the end of the day it will start to look shinny (it's not extremely mattifying like Rimmel's Stay Matte for example), not oily, so there's no need to apply it again. 
Most of all I love how my skin looks when I wear it, healthy and radiant. Maybe this is not the powder that will give you flawless skin the moment when you apply it, but it's one of the rare powders that will make it look good even at the end of the day.
It comes in three colours 10, 30 and 50. First two are a good match for my skin tone (without and with a tan), third one is so dark I use it as a bronzer. Colour 30 is in the photos. They changed the packaging a bit, in the first photo you can see the old one on the left.

Have you tried this powder? How do you like it?



Svakog puta kada mi koža nije najsjajnija ili nisam zadovoljna kako drugi puderi izgledaju na mom licu, posegnem za Alverde puderom u kamenu. Alverde proizvodi prirodnu kozmetiku i šminku i ovo je sigurno moj omičjeni proizvod iz njihove linije šminke. Ne sadrži parabene i parferm, a sadrži turmalin, mineral iz grupe silikata koji je klasifikovan kao poludragi kamen i poznat je po svojim neverovatnim svojstvima, na primer po tome što leči neke probleme na koži. Brendovi kao što su Aveda i La Mer koriste ga u svojim proizvodima.
Ovo je jedan od najboljih pudera u kamenu koje sam ikada koristila, uključujući i one skupljih brendova kao što su  Shiseido, Lancome i Benefit. Nemojte pogrešno da me shvatite, oni su takođe odlični, ali sa svojom cenom se i obavezuju na to da budu sjajni.
Ono što mi se najviše dopada kod Alverde pudera je njegova tekstura. Izmedju suve i kremaste, što je savršena tekstura za moju masnu kožu. Nanosim ga uz pomoć sunđerčića ili četke. Iako više volim da koristim sunđerčić, i sa četkom može da se dobije lep rezultat.
Pokrivna moć ide od slabe do srednje, zavisi od toga koliko proizvoda nanesete. Ne volim visoku pokrivnu moć u toku dana pa meni savršeno odgovara.
Pošto ga nanesem matira mi kožu, do kraja dana će ona malo da se prosija (ovaj puder ne matira puno kao na primer Rimmel Stay Matte puder u kamenu), ali neće da izgleda masno, pa nema potrebe da se ponovo nanese.
Najviše od svega volim kako mi koža izgleda kada ga nosim, zdravo i sveže. Možda ovo nije jedan od pudera koji daju perfektnu završnicu kada se nanese, ali je jedan od retkih sa kojima će koža lepo da izgleda do kraja dana.
Postoje tri nijanse, 10 30 i 50. Prve dve dobro odgovaraju mojoj boji kože (normalnoj bledoj i tamnijoj kad malo pocrnim) dok je treća toliko tamna da je koristim kao bronzer. Na fotografijama je nijansa 30. Pakovanje su neznatno promenili, na prvoj fotografiji možete da vidite i staro pakovanje.

Da li ste probali ovaj puder? Kako vam se dopada?
