DISCLAIMER: Unbiased review for your reference. I have smooth skin but I’m not spared from pores on my cheeks, redness around my nose and appearance of veins. Also, I have combination skin; I get oily on my t-zone area. For the lipstick I love wearing semi to matte formulation and with that, I have high tolerance with matte lipstick. Also, I always exfoliate my lips. Better check your skin types and preferences DO NOT put the blame if certain product doesn’t work the same.
Another local product for you girls, here is the PINKIES COLLECTION pressed powder in its new packaging and label.
Price: P188.00 very affordable
Net Wt: 12g
Made in: France
Packaging: It doesn’t come with a box, but it is housed in a black plastic compact just like the usual packaging of powder. It has a built-in mirror and separate container for the sponge. I really like how cute and feminine it is first reason why I decided to get one. When you open it you will see an engrave logo of the brand and on the back cover you will the shade and other details of the powder. This is also available in loose type.
Shades: According to the sale staff it is only available in (2) shades Light and Medium.However as per checking, the shade that I got is DEEP BEIGE or TWC – 05.
Coverage: Light to medium for a normal to combination like me. (Read Disclaimer)

I love this powder; I would say that this is an underrated local product for a normal to combination like me. I rarely see reviews about Pinkies Collection especially when it comes to their powder and foundation. For its price I would really recommend you to try this. Although it only comes in two shades I just hope you find the perfect shade that suits you well. This product is really great as a setting powder and for touch ups, although it is not a guarantee for those with severe oily skin. Nevertheless, I would definitely restock as soon as I run out of it.
You may find it at SM beauty counters or Watsons nationwide.
I hope you find this review really helpful.
