Another product from Etude House’s Nymph Aura line is the Nymph Aura Loose Powder. I bought the Nymph Aura Loose Powder #2 in Brilliant Pink Aura (628php).

What Etude House says:

Loose powder for both glowing finish and highlighter supplies the radiance and healthy glow to face with oil-absorbing coverage.

You read that right! It has oil-absorbing properties!

The 15 grams of Nymph Aura Loose Powder is in a pretty round pot and comes with a nice, soft puff.

The holes of the pot are well sealed by a clear, transparent plastic with a “pull-up-here-to-remove-sticker” part.

It’s powder and it’s in a pot but it’s not messy! It dispenses just enough powder on the puff. I use 1 – 2 times of that amount on my face.

It looks like an iridescent white-pink powder. It has a powdery, floral scent similar of that to the Nymph Aura Volumer.

When blended on the skin, it becomes very sheer with an opalescent finish. Not the type of opalescence that elaborates pores, rather, an opalescence that gives a pinkish glow to the skin. I have large pores and I stay away from frost and pearlescent finishes but this product doesn’t enlarge and emphasize pores.

I use this product as a finishing powder after BB cream + Nymph Aura Volumer or on top of an ordinary foundation. It gives a nice finish. Oil-control is surprisingly good! (Etude House wasn’t bluffing!)

To sum things up:

Pros:

  • Gives a pinkish, glowing finish.
  • Color is very sheer and blends well with the skin.
  • Oil-control is good. Took 8-10 hours before I needed to use an oil blotter.
  • The shimmers are very subtle.
  • Does not enlarge pores like how other pearlescent cosmetics do.
  • The quality of the puff is good.
  • It can act as a highlighter too.
  • A little goes a long way.

Cons:

  • I use the puff to put the powder on my face but I still have to use a powder brush for a more even distribution.

Here are other photos of the Nymph Aura Loose Powder on my skin. Please click the photos to enlarge and see the effect of the powder.

If you want something that will give you a pinkish glowing finish or if you’re bored of your plain old oil-control powder, try this!

    Interesting stuff! But does that mean that the shade of pink is on the face for at least 7 hrs? Doesn’t it fade away?

      In me, it lasted about 8-10 hours. I have combination skin and wasn’t in an air-conditioned room, although it’s not very humid here lately. Actually, I use it as a highlighter too. Just take note that the pink shimmer is subtle and not that obvious.
