Althea Petal Velvet Powder Debut & Review




 Hola! My make-up avid readers! I am so excited to share a new product from a Korea online beauty shop, Althea to you! This is the first in-house cosmetic by Althea and I am so honor to be chosen to review on it!

I mean, I could swear by its quality as I constantly purchase from Althea for their quality assurance, straight away from Korea with the lowest competitive price which explains why am I so excited!




I am so delight to receive the parcel in a packaging like this when it is just a product. I love that they have put in so much effort to send it to us! 

 Noted that the packaging of the products itself appear in pink colour, with a logo of Althea of it.


 Althea Petal Velvet Powder is a loose powder to minimise the appearance of pores and control sebum. Making your makeup stay intact for long hours.

Featuring here the cute thick fluffy puff. It optimise our experience of applying it. 



You can see from the bottom the light/fluffy and microfine texture of the powder. Not only that, it smells like  pleasing althea scent. 


What are the main ingredients in Althea Petal Velvet Powder?

 Applying Althea Velvet Powder in progress.




Tadaa.. the silky smooth finish like baby's butt. Oops, true comparison lo.


Buy it exclusively in Althea 

Price: Rm 16

Weight: 3g



How to use: 
Apply it as a makeup setting. Right after doing makeup. 

Texture: 
Micro-fine and airy powder in translucent white. 

Extremely fine micro particles that give a smooth satin finished like baby skin. 


Verdict: 
It gives a smooth velvety touch right immediately after application. The biggest difference is it turns my sticky face (result of applying moisturizer, essence prior makeup) to matte porcelain smooth. It lasts around 3 hours before becoming sticky again. Recommended to touch up every 3 hours for oily skin type. 


Advice: 
As much as I love the porcelain smooth skin (imagine baby skin, or your butt's skin, LOL), don't be so greedy and slathe a thick layer of it, because it distribute evenly due to it's micro-fine powder particle. Your face will not looking radiant, but rather thick with foundation, brighten up your skin complexion especially under ordinary indoor light. Touch up is more appropriate in this case. 


Extra love to this Althea own house production for their pleasant althea's scent that is so pleasing to use.
