Kevin Beautymaker Mineral Finishing Powder in 03: Healthy

I want to review the Kevin Beautymaker Mineral Finishing powder in Healthy 03 a bit better than I did last time. I might clarify a bit by some pictures as well.

I mentioned that Kevin is a makeupartist from Korea, but oops, I was corrected in the comments that he is actually from Taiwan...silly me. I saw him on some Korean sites so I presumed he was Korean as well.

The powder, as I mentioned before, is a really big jar. The top is white and adorned with silver letters. The mineral finishing powder is in a translucent jar beneath.


There has been a lot of attention to the puffs and brushes included. Mineral powder can be applied in various manners which depends on the result you want from the powder or foundation. A puff is handy for applying the powder a bit thicker for better coverage. It is also handy for applying the powder wet, which results in a different finish (more info over here, here and here).

Kevin Beautymaker included both a brush...

And a puff....(underneath the brush)

I really liked that both a brush as a puff included: it makes the product versatile in applying it. The creator has done some good research in mineral powders in order to include both brushes!

The jar is sealed with a plastic sticker, which is quite common for any powder...


The next picture is a bit more neutral than the colour itself. I wish it looked like that in real life.


Finely milled powder...this is a big plus of the powder.


Now, the next picture has been made on my pale inner arm. It shows the orangy-ness of the powder, which is the only (but very important) negative of this powder. I placed my usual mineral foundation next to it: it looks a bit darker against my pale arm, but it is a match on my face. You can also see that, even though it is darker, that the base colouring is right, and that of Kevin's powder is too orangy.


I regret the colour. I can make it a tad lighter, which I often do with my mineral foundations (as my colouring changes by season), but that won't take away the orangy base colour...I should have bought no 2 or no 1, but I often find Korean (I thought he was Korean and not Taiwanese) foundations to be a tad too light, so I picked the darkest one. I wonder if this product would work on darker Asian skin-tones, but I doubt that...
Still, it makes a lovely finishing powder if you apply it sparingly. It has the ability to give a hint of warmth to the face, as some peachy colour-correcting powders can.

you are the 2nd one to try its product of the bloggers i followed. i like how you reviewed it and i think it's too warm for you. looking at its powder, i don't think it's for the super pale gals. and it's requiring light hand application maybe a big drawback as i make the same mistake oftne! that's why i am using a skunk or large flat brush for loose powder to avoid such hiccups!

thanks for the review =)
i have a feelingn it'll work on my skin cuz i think my skin is darker compared to other asians. i used the lavshuca loose powder in lucent and it's lighter than the kevin one but it works nicely.
