Shop My Stash review – Manhattan 123 Clear Compact Powder

DSC_0762DSC_0766 DSC_0770I’ve hit pan!

I haven’t forgotten my Shop My Stash callenge – at all, actually! I’ve really been using the things from my LIST as much as possible. This powder actually suits my skin tone (which is “pale dead vampire”) so when I hit pan I hurried to order a few more 😉

I will make a collective how-did-it-go post by the end but until then I’ll be reviewing the products from the list, starting with the powder.

Packaging: The packaging isn’t anything too special. It’s easy too see it’s not high end and reminds me of makeup 13-14-15 y. o. would wear. The quality of the packaging is perfectly fine, sturdy and doesn’t at all feel flimsy and cheap. There’s a little “sponge” in the package but – to me at least – it’s worth nothing so I threw it out straight away.

There’s a new packaging, they changed it a while ago, so mine’s the “old”. The new packaging looks a little better but the product is pretty much the same.

Smell: It doesn’t really smell like anything particular, but it definitely doesn’t smell bad – you don’t notice any smell which is something I like since I’m really picky when it comes to smells.

Consistency: It’s a powder so of course it’s powdery 😉 But it doesn’t end up all over the place and stays on the brush as it should.

Price: If you want to buy the new packaging it costs 69,95 kr in Matas. If you’re good with the old packaging you can get it for 0.99 GBP (!) at FragranceDirect.

Does it work? Yes, it works! I’m very, very pale and have a lot of trouble finding powders and foundations in a working shade – either it’s way too dark or it’s vampire pale. I use the Vanilla (70) in this range and it’s perfect for my skin tone. The powder stays where it should all day, even through sweat (which there is a lot of these days) and it covers nicely without making you look like you’re wearing a 3 cm layer of powder. It does say it’s got anti-bacterial properties but in all fairness I haven’t really thought about it so I haven’t noticed whether it’s made a difference or not.

Rating: 5/5 stars – definitely a favorite of mine!
