REVIEW: THE NEW TARA SHEER POWDER

1:19 pm

Hi guys! Happy new month!
How many of us are having jitters about not yet achieving the goals we set out at the beginning of the year?? *raises hand*
it is just crazy how this year is running fast! Haa!


 Anyhoo, today's post is a product review. This product was sent to me by the House Of Tara Team in consideration for a review**. The Tara Sheer Powder is their newest product and it kinda compliments their new matte foundations, at least the shade/matching system suggests that. Okay let's do this




The powder is light weight, as the name implies; it is more of a translucent powder. Having used my Fashion Fair transglo for yeeaaars I can say I  prefer translucent powders to the standard full coverage ones.  This powder DOES NOT disappoint!

Coverage: It is very sheer and you won't feel like you have on any major face product. Testing this, I used it alone without foundation. When I used it again, I applied it with a damp sponge just to test its coverage. Surprisingly it was good!
If you have scars or blemishes, and you are the full coverage typa girl this might not work for you, as this provides minimal coverage as far as any translucent powder will take you.

Oil Control: Talking about oil, I do not have a 'dreadful' oily skin, so this was fine. For the typical oily oily skin, you'd have to use this with a primer.


Shade Matching:  I was matched to a TA-14 initially, but I decided on TA-13 because sometimes these powders turn dark after you have been beaten by the Naija sun, and you go from your original color to 2 shades darker! (OK i exaggerate but you know how it is). After using this for 3 weeks, I see that going a shade lighter was not so necessary as it didn't turn dark at anytime.

Packaging: Now this is where I have a problem! OK I'm not sure if these products are already out for sale or I was given a sample product, but as you can see, this product comes with no inscription on it as to WHAT the product is. Is it a lipstick or a mascara? or foundation? At least there should be a label that says Sheer Powder yadayada... Now I cannot remember if it was on its original packaging  (came in a black pack) , but even at that It should com with a product description!

CONCLUSION: If you want a lightweight powder,  want to take a break from full coverage, want a natural looking powder to wear to work everyday, i would recommend this product! And yet again, it is a Nigerian product! I stan for Nigerian brands!

Have you tried this?? Or will ya?? Used any House of Tara products lately? Loving Nigerian brands?? Kindly let me/us know in the comment section below! I love hearing from you guys!!

Till later!
