Looking for a Good Powder? Try Tarte Provocateur Pressed Mineral Powder SPF 8.

I'm so happy with my new find, it's so pretty, has a good value and works amazing!

Actually, i bought it by accident. I wasn't mean to buy anything, so when it's arrived, i left it in my back up box and forget about it. I don't even trying to search a review about it, i just left it there.

Then i read someone said it works amazing. I have my benefit hello flawless powder (from How to Look Best at Everything kit, reviewed here) but since it's not in travel friendly side, i need something else. Benefit dandelion is great, but has no coverage and too bulky.

Long story short, i tried Tarte Provocateur Pressed Mineral Powder and fell in LOVE. I like all my previous powder, but never ever fall in love like i do to Tarte's. I have a very oily skin and it does help to make my skin less oily. Feels like it's melted to my skin, make my skin but better version. And you know what, it's come in Perfect Shade. As i said, i never trying to find any information about it, so i dont know what shade would suit me best, and it's just like perfect.

Before going to picture, i'd let you know that mine is in sample size (0.45g) so maybe it's not like the full size item you've seen in store or any where. And i've checked Tarte's web, i can't find any pressed powder with SPF 8. But found it in I wonder if tarte powderful mineral pressed powder are the same.

going to description in sephora :

Since mine is in sample size, it's only covered by cardboard with magnetic flap. No complaints here, since it's very travel friendly.
I love the sewing design, and i think the full sized one has a prettier packaging but also bulkier.

0.15 oz is basically about half of full size product (0.28oz).
It does contains SPF 8, a nice add, even if it's not really help. But i doesn't need higher SPF number in my powder since it could add white cast on picture.

Like all product from Tarte, it doesnt contains of parabens, petro chemical, phtalate, sulfate, glycol, fragrance, oil, gluten, dye and talc. I think those make it safetier for sensitive skin like mine. You can check the complete ingredient list on Sephora description above ^^

Above is how the insider look like.
A mirror would be good but it also add some weight.

Swatch above was taken under low sun light.
Can you get what i mean? It's also not in matte shade, just lovely natural.

I also took another picture under heavier sun light. Very lovely, i'd say again.
I usually use it with ecotools retractable kabuki brush, which nicely pick up the pigment and take a good amount of product.

It's definately Holy Grail product, not less.
Have you find your HG powder?
what's that? :)
