DIANA OF LONDON TWO WAY PAN-CAKE WET AND DRY In IVORY

I love multipurpose cosmetics.They are travel friendly and offer convenience with affordability.This post is about one such powder pan cake.


   DIANA OF LONDON TWO WAY PAN-CAKE WET AND DRY In  IVORY BEIGE 112


DIANA OF LONDON TWO WAY PAN-CAKE WET AND DRY

This shade is "Ivory Beige", shade 112.

My Experience:



I have been using this pancake for well over two years now. I used to get it for PKR 695 but, they suddenly discontinued it and now the improved version’s price is PKR1100.UPDATE:[11/6/14]Price is 1395 now.


I use Ivory beige shade, which is a good match for my skin.It comes in 10 shades from 110 to 120.One can easily find a match.Very fair NC20-25 girls might have some problem in finding a match since even the fairest shade can look a little dark on them.




 Now this powder can be used with a wet sponge for better coverage and with a dry sponge for setting foundation or sheer coverage.It comes with a square sponge.


 The powder is really fine and smooth. It just glides on your skin and gives your face a really smooth look and feel. You can build up the coverage to some extent when using the wet sponge.


Coverage is sheer but can be build up a notch.

DIANA OF LONDON TWO WAY PAN-CAKE WET AND DRY: In IVORY


 The best thing I like about the product is that, with it, no one can tell that I am wearing a base.I wear it to work everyday, and be it indoors or outdoors the powder doesn’t show at  all.it looks and feels natural.It does not smother your skin.



It is a blessing for girls with oily skin.It lasts up to a good 4-5 hours without re-touch and then gradually fades away but, the smooth even look of skin stays all day. Skin oils bind to it, somehow in this amazing way that gives the skin a lovely glow all day. It also controls oiliness on my face to some extent.


The best thing is that it doesn't break me out at all, even if I sleep wearing it .This really is a commendable job, since I have very oily acne prone skin.


It doesn't cover my acne marks and I have to use a concealer with it. With concealer it acts as a blessing for my skin.


RECOMMENDED FOR YOU IF:

1. You have oily skin

2. Uneven complexion

3. You have acne prone skin and want  a daily wear base that doesn’t break you out.



RATING:

    1. For shade selection of powder products you need to apply and blend and then observe after 10 to fifteen minutes.This is because powders bind with skin oils and warms up to reveal the true shade.
      As for this powder then ivory is a good match if you are 54 beige.However do try for yourself before buying.I rate this above most foundations but below mineral makeup :) If you have open pores then you will love the natural smooth finish it gives.

    1. Hi cute angel.Thankyou so very much for your complements.For acne prone skin at your age I think mineral makeup will work best.It does not clog pores,does not irritate acne and with the right technique looks natural.Here is the link of my review:

    2. with the right primer you will not need a pressed powder with this.However if you do then try Diana of london pressed powder.Its simply great.Also you can try Rimmel pressed powder as it is more pocket friendly.
