Make Over Silky Smooth Translucent Powder Review

August 23, 2018


August is going to end soon, oh my god, how time flies! I'm so sorry guys, I don't stick to my promise to keep writing about my number one of at least something that I like. I was originally gonna write about my top 10 books aka my current reading list but I've been so busy for the last couple of weeks as I've returned back to Jogja for another semester here. Back in Bekasi, I had too much idle time, so of course I got to be really productive with my blog. I've explained it in my last post that I just got back from a short trip to Bali with my family (expect to see a lot of holiday posts in the future *wink*) and it's been a very tight schedule because college has just started again and I flew from one city to the other like a businesswoman in such a quick pace even my friends are surprised that by Monday I could sit my ass back in the class, lol. My parents actually want me to stay longer in Bekasi just for a few days because they thought I'd be exhausted from the many flights I took but I told them I don't wanna be absent for classes.

So for today's post, I'll be writing about another beauty review. I know you might expect a bombass post talking about Bali but I haven't had the time to actually edit the pictures. This post itself (and another few more...) has been laying in the draft almost dead because I never took the time to write about it. And I feel bad because I want to share with you the products before it actually goes out of date. So while I edit my Bali pictures, I will get rid of the drafts by actually finishing and posting them out.


Make Over is an Indonesian brand that I nearly mistook as Make Up Forever in the first place. Don't get me wrong, their font has a lot of resemblance. The quality and the array of products they have in the market almost shook me to the ground because I never expected a local brand to be this all out. Y'all know I'm a cheapskate bitch, and to me, personally, Make Over's price point is still a little over my budget and so I never really look into their catalog. Not until one of my friend was trying to sell this loose powder because the shade was too dark for her for only half the original price. I never had loose powder before but after I learn about baking and setting my concealer so they don't crease, I supposed I needed to at least have a loose powder to save my face. Even though it's a translucent powder, it does have color and very subtle coverage. Sadly though, they only have 5 shades and this one is the darkest shade they have. I'm surprised that their fifth shade is actually the lightest shade :( That's what I hate with most local brands here; they don't have a wide variety of shades. Nowadays I think brand really need to expand their shades because, WHY NOT???


It originally comes with a pad sponge but I hate those kind of sponges so I got rid of it. I always have a hard time bringing this powder on a trip because nothing holds the powder from getting out through the holes and god knows how my suitcases got jammed here and there and I'm surprised the product hasn't spilled out and made a mess. That being said, the lid can tightly sealed the powder so you can bring them safely everywhere without having to worry if it will make a mess.


As I've told you before, this powder has a subtle coverage. On days where I don't feel like wearing foundation or concealer or even BB cream, and in dire need of a coverage to look more awake and alive, I put them right on top of my primer and they quickly set! Thankfully they match my skin tone so I don't look like a clown. They're very smooth on the skin despite the thick texture on the hand. I will definitely repurchase this once I run out of it because it's very affordable among other loose powder from other brands and with the many benefits I get, it's such a great product.

  6. Great review dear!
    In response to the comment on my blog, between Avene's micelle water and Garnier's, I like both. I use both, despite using garnier's the longer, the avene is also having very positive results on my skin. :)
