Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Compact {Review}


I bought this wonderful setting powder at the same time when I purchased the Pink Beam Mineral Highlighter a few months ago. Both this and the Pink Beam highlighter come in the same sweet round compact, but this one is mint green and the other is soft pink. They both form part of Innisfree's Mineral range of products and have less harmful ingredients and additives than most other brands. 


As with the highlighter, this sebum (or oil absorbing) powder comes in two forms, a pressed powder (this is the one I have) and a loose powder. The loose powder is a little too messy for my liking, but would work well when dusted over the face. I still love my (very old) Yardley translucent  loose powder for setting my makeup, so this pressed version is perfect for me.

It's small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, and perfect for slipping into your hand bag. I carry my with me all day for touch ups on the go. 

As the packaging states, this sebum control powder is designed to give you a "soft and powdery finish". I'm not exactly sure what that means really, but doesn't it sound lovely. This powder absorbs all the oil and shine on my face and lasts all day. We haven't hit summer yet, so I can't say for certain that the oil control will last all day when things get really humid here, but if it doesn't it's not a worry as I am happy to touch up throughout the day.

The powder is white, but when rubbed into the skin it becomes translucent and doesn't leave any white residue or noticeable white streaks or lines. As with the Pink Bean highlighter, my only complaint is that the sponge is white, as when applied over my foundation or BB cream, the powder puff undoubtedly gets dirty. But this isn't so much of a worry to me as I am able to buy replacement puffs easily and they are very affordable.


I am loving this new addition to may makeup products, and the packaging is just so sweet. You can find yours at your nearest Innisfree store for W12 000 or online through Gmarket.

For international buyers, I'm afraid I haven't seen it for sale on any of the international sites that sell Korean makeup. When I do I'll be sure to let you know. For now you can find other great Korean products for international purchase at the following online stores: w2 BeautySoko Glam and WishTrend.
