Beauty Credit Loose powder - Purple Price: ... I don't remember and I can't find it online, but it was definitely between $5 and $8 (5000won to 8000)
A little while ago I did a review of The Beauty credit make-up base in Purple. A bit of a rave review I admit.
I haven't been using the base much these days, mostly because I've been doing very basic day to day make up.
At the same time I bought the Base, I bought this loose powder.
And obviously haven't gotten around to reviewing it. Mostly because I haven't used it.
There is a good reason for that though....
First of, the loose powder is packaged in the same silver style as the Base. With the rocking horse motif on top. I really enjoy this case, its simple but pretty.
It comes in a couple of different colors. The purple, along with the more common translucent and skin tone colors.
I picked the purple to go with my purple base. Thinking it would add to the pale luminescent look.
But I guess I didn't look closely enough at it in the store...... because it's filled with sparkles....
I love sparkles, on my nails, in my gloss, even on my eyes if they are done tastefully, but all over my face?
The sparkles aren't densely packed, so the powder is usable. Particularly for the weekends or going out. But the powder itself, around the sparkles....
It basically does what I feared the tinted base would do, and makes me look purple. Even with just a light brushing, and none of the purple base on at all, just regular BB creams.... It gives me a weird purple cast.

This is a pic of the powder patted in a bit. You can see the sparkles, even in this lighting....
Mind you the quality of the powder is finely milled, and not drying, it might be beautiful in another color, without sparkles. As it is, it's a Toss.... :(
