I’ve been using Palladio’s Rice Powder to set my foundation regularly since I was sent some Palladio products to try in the summer. I really like how it finishes my makeup. It removes any unwanted shine and doesn’t feel heavy or make your face look cakey. The packaging is cute — reminds me of Benefit’s powder boxes (think Coralista etc.). Here’s what Palladio says on the site about this product:
“An old and traditional concept that is world-renowned and a basic staple for the professional make up artist. It absorbs excess oil, thus maintaining proper pH level to the skins mantle.”
I’m not as big a fan of the Rice Paper, which you’re supposed to use to blot your face during the day. It does an okay job but I prefer to use actual powder in a compact to do touch ups. This somehow felt weird and didn’t seem to control oily spots that appear during the day.
The Rice Powder product is priced at $6 (US), probably slightly higher in Canada. Overall an affordable buy with great results!
