Hello Matte! Colour Collection Skin Perfecting Dual Powder Foundation

For some reason, I find my skin oilier nowadays even though it's been raining nonstop and it's pretty cool outside; usually my skin tends to be a little bit more on the dry side when it's the rainy season and most especially if it's cold. However, I find myself needing to blot every 2 hours just to remove excess oil.

I found one powder foundation that lets my skin be a little bit more matte and saves me from retouching ever so often. (Oh I hate retouching many times throughout the day.)

 Colour Collection Skin Perfecting Dual Powder Foundation in Medium Beige

I have finally used my Skin Perfecting Dual Powder Foundation- I've had this for the longest time but just haven't had time to roadtest it yet since I still have some powder foundation on my makeup table that I want to finish first. And since I became just a little bit more adventurous and wanted to find something that would help keep my oiliness at bay, I gave this a try, not knowing what to expect.

First of all, let's talk packaging! As always, since it's from the Makeup Artist Edition, it comes in a sleek shiny black compact with a small mirror and a washable sponge. It's very handy too.

I've tried using the product as powder using a kabuki brush and I've also used a wet sponge in applying the product. I would have to say that if it's used dry, it gives a very light coverage to the face. It works just like a pressed powder. It won't cover any blemishes or scars. But when used wet, it gives medium to almost full coverage. It reduces appearance of blemishes and imperfection of the skin.

What's also perfect about this product is that it gives a matte finish but leaves the skin still feeling silky. Some matte products tend to make the face look flat and dull because it absorbs all the hydration of the skin, but the Skin Perfecting Dual Powder doesn't. And my face stays matte for 3-3.5 hours before the oil starts to build up. And that's a really good news for me given my skin condition nowadays!

Medium Beige is a little bit light for my skin tone in my opinion but I still enjoy wearing it for an ordinary day. It would look really really light on me in flash photography but what the heck, it keeps my face from making me a grease pan! :p Haha!

So to whom do I recommend this product to? I guess it's pretty obvious. To those who have oily skin, you might want to check this out. It worked for me and I just had to blot my skin after 4 hours (take note that my skin has been acting up lately). I would use this wet for parties or when I'm off to an event but other than that, for an ordinary day that you don't need much coverage, apply it with a powder brush and you're good to go! :D

All in all, I have to say that the only downside is that it's a little bit hard to find. A lot of people have been asking me where they can get Colour Collection products. Well, you have to buy it from a Colour Collection seller. But here's their facebook page to check out the collection.
