It is my haul since July, I posted here. I ran out of my powder pact, I still own a pact but it's two way cake and I don't really like it because it looks thick somehow so I prefer powder only pact. I already owned the Holika Holika Luminous BB Cream #2 and I'm interested to have the powder too. The BB Cream has silk finish and light texture and I hope the powder is like that, too.
For a smooth and beautiful finish, put some Holika Holika Luminous Silk Aura Pact Foundation. This compact powder is soft and light, leaving skin silky and smooth-looking. It sets your makeup flawlessly and keeps your face shine-free all day long. It glides on evenly to your natural skin tone for a glowing complexion. This powder is long-lasting and conceals imperfections perfectly.

The pact is beautiful, pretty pink but way better than the BB Cream, I hate the white sticker on the BB Cream because it is easy to get stained. The pact is pretty pink with mirror plastic and white lace, of course. It is quiet big but not too thick.
It has plastic separator between the powder and the puff so the puff wont get dirty after using. For me, it's a must for powder pact, if not, it's really unhygienic.
The puff is soft, I like to touch it. It feels soft on the skin, but to do quick make up, sometimes brush is more useful. Puff can be used for touch up. The puff is quiet big and definitely bigger than my Skinfood White Grape Fresh Light Pact.
The powder is really pretty, same like the lace motif on the packaging, it is embossed on the powder. It has SPF so it will be good for sun protection even it's just 25 but better than not at all. For going out and indoor activity it's good.
It feels so soft on the skin and really light. It is barely seen the before after because there is no coverage. I'm looking for a light texture powder and I'm okay with it, it can be used to set the BB Cream and make up. It has silky feeling after.
If you're looking for good coverage, this is not it. It feels like light loose powder that turns into a pact. No matter how many layers I put on, there's not much difference between before and after and it won't get cakey. Because it's so soft, it needed touch up. I don't have oily skin so usually I never touch up for powder.
+ Pretty packaging
+ Soft puff
+ There's a plastic separator
+ Feels light on skin and not cakey
- No coverage
- Need touch up
I like how it feels so soft and light on the skin, it feels like I don't wear anything. I'm not looking for any coverage and just for set my make up so it's good for me. It's really pretty in my make up pouch and the packaging is not too thick, still a good fit. I've never used a same powder pact for more than once because I like to try new things and I use loose powder more often than a pact.
What is your fave powder pact?
Maybe if you have a recommendation for me, I'm still looking moisturizing powder that I haven't found until know but in good budget of course, less than $15.
