Compact powder for dewy skin











If you are a regular reader you've probably noticed I mentioned this compact powder couple of times before. Usually I like to wear as little makeup on my skin as possible, so on regular bases I only wear compact foundations or powders on my face. Liquids are reserved for special occasions of when I feel like having some fun with my face makeup so I decide to use liquid foundation. Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against it, it's just that my pores become clogged so easily and I end up getting those little annoying pimples on my forehead. Anyways, powder foundation is usually enough for me and it keeps my oily face under control. You can find the list of my favourite compact foundations here. For the longest time one of them has been Alverde Kompaktpuder. I love Alverde products because they are made form natural ingredients and never broke me out. When the Multi korrektur compact powder came out I couldn't wait to try it out. Now I've been using it for couple of months and here's what I think about it.

As you can see in the photos this compact powder contains three colours, similar like some colour correcting concealer palettes. The theory behind this is that every colour corrects one skin issue, so at the end you are left with the perfect skin. Purple cancels out yellow, because they are on the opposite sides of the colour wheel. That means it is ideal for yellow pigmentation or for brightening up dull skin with yellowish undertone. Also, those with olive complexion can only benefit form purple powder. On the other hand yellow makes purple look less prominent, which makes it great for covering dark circles or even acne scars or spots (yellow can cancel out red and pink tones as well). Lastly, it's a known fact that green covers the redness. 

The idea behind this compact is that all of the colours mixed together help brighten up your complexion by canceling out every possible discoloration. When you mix all the colours together it creates a neutral colour you can easily use on the whole face. It's a bit green at the first glance, but once it's blended it looks very natural. I can't really say whether this powder helps with major skin discoloration, because I don't have any, but I love the way it looks on the face. It makes my complexion brighter, my face looks very fresh and healthy. I've never before had a dewy face this nice, all thanks to the shimmer particles this powder contains. Some people even use it as a highlighter, but I'm more for stronger highlighters. This powder can and will keep the oily at bay, but if you have oily skin like me you will probably have the days when you have to blot your face. The line between oily and dewy is always thin, so bare that in mind as well as the fact that this powder does contains a certain amount of shimmer.



Ako redovno čitate moj blog onda ste verovatno primetili da sam već pominjala ovaj puder nekoliko puta. Uglavnom volim da nosim što manje šminke na licu, za svakodnevnu šminku koristim samo pudere u kamenu. Oni tečni su rezervisani za posebne prilike ili kada želim malo više da se zabavim šminkom pa se odlučim za tečni puder. Naravno, nemam ništa protiv tečnog pudera, nego mi jednostavno ne odgovara za svakodnevno nošenje, zapuši mi pore pa na kraju počnu da mi izlaze one male iritantne bubuljice po čelu. Da ne dužim više, puder u kamenu mi je obično dovoljan i drži moju masnu kožu pod kontrolom. Ovde možete da vidite koji su mi puderi u kamenu omiljeni. Već duže vreme jedan od njih je Alverde Kompaktpuder. Volim Alverde proizvode jer su napravljeni od prirodnih sastojaka i nikad mi od njih nisu izašle bubuljice. Kada su izbacili Multi korrektur puder jedva sam čekala da ga probam. Koristim ga nekoliko meseci i evo šta mislim o njemu. 

Kao što vidite na fotografijama, puder zapravo sadrži tri boje, slično kao i neke palete korektora za sakrivanje nepravilnosti. Teorija koja iza toga stoji je da svaka boja ispravlja jedan ''problem'' pa tako na kraju dobijete savršenu kožu. Ljubičasta sakriva žute tonove, jer su na suprotnim stranama točka sa bojama. To znači da je savršena ako imate neke žute pigmentacije na licu, ili za davanje svežine umornoj koži koja izgleda žućkasto. Takođe, onima koji imaju maslinasti ten ljubičasti puder izuzetno pogoduje. Sa druge strane, žuta neutrališe ljubičastu zbog čega je sjajna za pokrivanje podočnjaka ili čak ožiljaka od akni i ostalih nepravilnosti (žuta takođe neutrališe crvene i roze tonove). I poslednje, kao što je već dobro poznato, zelena bi trebalo da pokriva crvenilo.

Ideja je da kada se sve ove boje pomešaju pomažu koži da izgleda lepše i svežije tako što neutrališu svaku moguću diskoloraciju. Kada ih pomešate dobijate neutralnu boju koju možete da koristite na celom licu. Na prvi pogled deluje previše zeleno, ali kada se fino izblenduje izgleda prirodno. Ne mogu da kažem da li ovaj puder pomaže sa velikim diskoloracijama na koži, jer ih nemam, ali obožavam kako izgleda na licu. Ten mi je sjajniji, lice mi izgleda sveže i zdravo. Nikada nisam uspela da postignem ovako lep dewy izgled, a to je sve zbog sjajnih čestica koje ovaj puder sadrži. Neki ga koriste i kao hajlajter, ali ja više volim hajlajtere koji su malo jači. Ovaj puder će zadržati preterani sjaj kože pod kontrolom, ali ako imate masnu kožu kao ja, verovatno će biti dana kada ćete morati da matirate lice u toku dana. Linija između dewy i masne kože je uvek tanka, pa imajte u vidu činjenicu da ovaj puder sadrži određenu dozu sjajnih čestica.
