Heroine make mineral BB loose powder Review

Heroine Make launched their first BB Mineral Loose Powder. Contain lasting mineral powder to control shine all day for a smooth appearance.

Available in 2 shades (#01 and #02) provides a natural yet translucent coverage.
Retail for SD$23.90 each.

The casing is very simple yet kinda sweet and cute with the pink and gold. 

Heroine make mineral BB loose powder had SPF25 PA++
Contain 6g of product

The puff that comes with it us super soft and smooth on the surface

Swatches of both shades in various lighting

After trying out the BB Mineral loose powder for more then a month here my review::
  • The powder doesn't feel too heavy on the skin
  • It does feel like mineral foudation, but without the heaviness and coverage
  • Sheer coverage
  • The powder was pretty soft and smooth
  • This has a soft focus finishing
  • minimized pores 
  • smooth out the skin texture
  • Doesn't cause any skin irritation
  • No breaking-out from using it
  • Average oil control
  • Finishing texture feel quite smooth
  • Doesn't feel too drying on the skin
  • Doesn't feel patchy nor cakey on the skin
When I set my foundation or bbcream with this powder, I prefer to use the powder puff.. it gave a more even and smooth texture with soft focus effect. I don't see the soft focus effect when I use a brush to set my foundation/bbcream. 

I find myself reaching for this loose powder more often when I use bbcream.. I donno why, I find that it gave me a little bit more coverage and make my base last a bit longer too.

Available at Watsons Singapore and Sasa Cosmetics
Price : SD$23.90
