I got the Althea Petal Velvet Powder in #0 Translucent when I ordered an Althea Wonder Mystery Box. I’ve been curious about this for a while now since I’ve been seeing great reviews. That and well, it’s super cheap at ₱210. Could such an inexpensive powder really be that good? At last, I was going to be able to try and see for myself.
The Althea Petal Velvet Powder promises to set makeup, control oil, and minimize the appearance of pores. It’s a pretty tall order to fill.
The shade #0 Translucent is white. There are 2 more shades — #23 Warm Beige and #Pink Lavender.
The powder is extremely fine. There is also a mild, pleasant scent.
When you blend it onto the skin, it completely disappears. It leaves the skin surface soft, smooth, and matte.
I tried using it as a setting powder and it’s surprisingly good. It really is translucent and there doesn’t seem to be any white cast.
What I like about the Althea Petal Velvet Powder:
- It’s super fine and blends nicely into the skin.
- It was able to fulfill everything it promised — makeup setting, oil control, and pore minimizing.
- It’s cheap at ₱210.
- I like the mild, fresh scent.
- It brightens skin.
Downside? Silicone is one of its main ingredients and silicone can potentially clog pores. I think thorough cleansing and removal can counter this though. I’ve used this powder several times already and so far no breakouts.
