I dunno if I need another face powder in my life but it sure is hard to say no when it comes housed in a cute little peach compact.
I’m such a packaging h0r!
Baviphat is a Korean brand that relies on some copycat-like products that may evoke images of Benefit Cosmetics. Their Sugar Girl Collection is one geared towards teens but of course, having never grown up, it’s very fitting that I’m drawn towards it.
Baviphat Sugar Girl Peach Sebum Solution Pact is a simple, silky finishing powder to control excess oil. Supposedly the formula includes Peach Extract which controls oil. I admit I was disappointed it didn’t smell peachy but it does have a light, somewhat fruity scent (kinda reminds me of some sort of cereal…fruity pebbles perhaps?). In terms of texture and formula it’s a nice enough powder that does a fairly good job of keeping your face oily free for about four hours or so. The powder isn’t heavily pigmented but it does have enough of a payoff to smooth out minor imperfections, even out skin done, and give a nice flawless finish to makeup.
In the long run their isn’t a ton of special here outside of the very sweet peach shaped compact this comes in. Come on, how cute is this right? I think that packaging makes it extra special plus the face powder housed inside isn’t too bad.
The downside is it proves a little difficult to locate at retail in the US since it is a Korean brand and relying on Evil-Bay or online shops to snag it proves a pain since sellers jack up the price considerably. And worst still? Like most Asian brands it only comes in two shade selections which really limits who can use this one! I picked out the second shade which is a natural beige and seems to suit my skin type perfectly. I’d say anyone up until an NC30 (don’t quote me, I’m not super suave-y with MAC’s color range) should be able to use this color.
I got mine at YesStyle for a crazy price of $28 since I was ordering a Nillie Shop tote at the time and temporarily lost my sanity. But please, for the love of God, don’t spend that much on it as that’s way above retail. Check around Evil-bay for a better deal.
I dunno if it’s worth the extra effort of tracking it down but I liked the formula of the powder and thought the compact itself was mighty cute so you just might want to indulge if you can find one cheap.
