Banila Co Winter 2008: The Secret Glam Part 2 - The Secret Glam Face Powder

I am really in love with Banila Co The Secret Glam range. I already reviewed the super cute The Secret Glam Shadows so it's time to write about the next item.
One of the heart pieces of the collection is the Face Powder which is also the most expensive piece of the collection.

The compact is a transparent gray-tinted quite solid and heavy plastic case through which the powder looks darker (more like a bronzer). However when you open it and look at the powder it's lighter rather than bronze or brown.

It's a baked powder consisting of blocks of different shades of cream, beige and peach. I just swirl my brush around the powder and get a pretty shimmery soft golden color (I use my Etude House Skunk might get more pigment and shimmer with a regular face brush).

I think this is more a highlighter than a face powder as it gives an absolutely gorgeous soft dewy finely-milled shimmer so it could look a bit OTT when applied all over the face.
However for the evening or dark snowy days I can imagine this very well as a luminizer for my whole face.

The Secret Glam Face Powder retails for 24000 Won (about US$17) but I paid a bit more since I can't get this from Gmarket.

yea I wish we could order Banila just through Gmarket! I still end up paying at least 1/2 over retail value when I order from my ebay seller =(

I think the Lioele coupons are to be used when you order from their website so they are only of use if you're in Korea I believe =X
