    Palladio Rice Powder Review

    Palladio Rice Powder
    Having combination or oily skin can be a serious problem while wearing makeup if the right product is not being used your makeup will start to melt throughout the day which will make it look less presentable. Just imagine if you had done a dewy look and you start sweating before the end of the day. Blotting paper does not do much, and sometimes it even makes matters worse. For long-lasting foundation always moisturize and apply a pea-size dot of a lightweight, oil-free primer to your face before applying concealer, foundation and powder. Another must have in my beauty stash that I would like to recommend is the Palladio Rice Powder, it offers an incredible coverage and it keeps my skin oil free throughout the day, especially my t-zone area since I have combination skin. It also helps to set my makeup right throughout the day, whenever I use rice powder I don’t necessarily need to do any touch-ups.

    palladio rice Powder Setting Powder Matte Finish Oily Skin

    The Palladio Rice Powder comes in a square shaped container at an estimated size of 2×2 inches. A tape is attached to the lid, so it opens like a compact. The entire lid can be removed since it is just attached by a tape.

    The Palladio Rice Powder is known for its oil-absorbing benefits and its ability to help makeup last longer while leaving a silky finish to the skin. Rice Powder is the refined starch from rice, known as Oryza Sativa, it does not cause breakouts nor does it irritates sensitive pores. The power of rice has been used for generations in the ancient art of Ayurveda, a holistic healing practice that helps to soothe inflamed skin. It has been used by Asian women in their facial makeup and to wash their skin since the 16th century. As you can see on the packaging there is an Asian looking lady drawn on the lid wearing a Chinese dress and an oldies perm. Palladio Rice Powder is considered as a rich emollient skin treatment. Palladio Rice Powder does not contain harsh chemicals, so it will not irritate the skin or cause breakout unless you are allergic to the product.

    The Palladio Rice Powder has this scent of talc that is used in baby powder, the scent is not too overpowering but it smells old fashion. Palladio Rice Powder can be used alone or to set makeup, I preferably use it after I apply concealer and prior foundation application, since the powder doesn’t have any color and I rather to use a colored powder to set my foundation but I will dust a little across my nose or the entire t-zone area if needed. The Palladio Rice Powder helps to control shine/reduce oil, so it will create a matte finish once applied.

    We all know that setting/finishing powder can become messy when they are being used from a sifter jar. To avoid this problem when using the Palladio Rice Powder it is advised not to remove the entire sticker from the sifter as this will help to control the amount of powder that comes at once through the holes. Peel a small section of the sticker and cut or poke holes in the sticker that covers the sifter area.

    The Palladio Rice Powder is very inexpensive and for the price that you pay; you get a lot of product in the container despite it being relatively small, the loose powder supply seems endless, it will last you up to six months to a year even if you use it daily.

    Use a light hand when applying the Rice Powder to your skin, a little goes a long way.

    I wish this rice powder also came in a pressed powder format.

    Ben Nye Final Seal Review

    I love wearing makeup but on bright sunny days, I tend to perspire a lot. My face gets sweaty (sweat beads), especially my t-zone area that tends to become oily resulting my finished makeup look to become cakey. I normally use blotting paper, it helps but I prefer if my makeup would just stay put without moving. Eventually, a runny, blotchy, cakey makeup look will make you lose your self – confidence.

    I have heard a lot about Ben Nye Final Seal before I decided to purchase and it was highly recommended by Makeup Artist as well as YouTube Beauty Vloggers.

    Oil Blotting Facial Sheets

    Oil Blotting sheets were made specifically to remove the excess oil from your skin whether you are wearing makeup or not while keeping your skin matte and beautiful for hours. Oil blotting sheets are a must have in your beauty kit. They are easy to use any time of the day or night and it does not smudge your makeup. These thin, absorbent, pocket-size sheets discreetly remove surface oil from the skin.

    Why you need facial oil absorbing sheets?

    Oily facial skin is not attractive and it can cause consciousness and even low self-esteem. By using blotting sheets one can avoid going around with an oily face. Oil blotting sheets can quickly and effortlessly eliminate the oil from the face, especially the T-zone area.

    Many women believe having a pack of tissue handy will do the trick, but not so. Using regular tissue never absorbs much oil and it only ruins one’s make-up while using blotting paper will not smudge one’s make-up. Using wet wipes is not a good option either cause this only removes the make-up and you will have to reapply it all over again. Many wipes are alcohol based, so it strips the skin and leaves it harsh.

    How to Use Oil Blotting Sheets

    Using facial oil blotting paper is easy because they are thin and almost like grease paper.
    • Take a sheet from the handy packaging of blot paper
    • Press the sheet firmly but gentle against the shiny areas of your face, starting with the T-zone (i.e. nose, chin and forehead). Allow the blotting paper to soak up excess oil by leaving it on your skin for a few seconds.
    • Use a new sheet on the other areas of your face
    • Dispose of used oil blotting sheets

    The facial oil will be absorbed through the sheet held against the skin, it can be seen clearly that the oil from the face is soaked through the paper. The difference will be noticeable as you will be experiencing an instant look. As the shine disappears completely, leaving a matte finish and your make-up is still in place.

    Types of Facial Oil Blotting Sheets

    Facial blotting papers are available at local stores and they can be purchased online. Oil blotting paper comes with skin soothing components such as:

    • Lavender
    • Chamomile
    • Natural powder
    • Salicylic Acid
    • Hemp
    • Plain and Powder Free
    • Tea Tree

    I like to keep a pack of oil blotting sheets in my makeup bag so that I can pull it out for usage whenever I need.

    Benefits of Using a Face Primer


    If you suffer from oily skin and acne, applying primer before the foundation is a necessity. Not only does primer contains waxes and polymers that provide a smooth canvas for flawless application, it also creates a bond between the skin and the foundation which helps the makeup to last all day without touch up or re-applying which is essential. The silica or silica type ingredient included in the primer also helps to control sheen.

    Benefits of Using a Face Primer

    Primers can help to reduce the look of large pores, filling in lines and preventing foundation from looking cakey. They also help with evening out the skin tone and making your makeup last much longer throughout the day. One of the main benefits of using a foundation makeup primer is that you will use less of your makeup. Instead of your foundation absorbing directly into your skin, the primer acts as a base, with the foundation adhering to the primer rather than the skin itself. With a primer reducing the imperfections of the skin’s surface, less product is required to cover those areas.

    How to Use a Primer?

    1.     Use a primer after applying moisturizer to the skin, then allow at least 5 minutes for the moisturizer to settle into the skin. 
    2.     Use a pea size amount of the primer and apply gently to the skin, paying attention to the t-zone section and under eye areas.  This will allow any under eye concealer to glide on smoothly.
    3.     Then apply your concealer, foundation, or face powder as you normally would.
    Which primer is your favorite?
    Recommend a matte primer…

    Tips for Taking Care of the Skin

    Skin, acne, pimple
    A pimple starts when the pores in the skin become clogged with a type of oil called sebum, which normally lubricates the skin and hair. Acne is common during puberty when hormones goes into overdrive, causing the skin to overproduce sebum. Because many oil-producing glands are on the forehead, nose, and chin, this area called the T-zone is where a person is most prone to pimples.
    Here are some tips to help prevent breakouts and clear them up as fast as possible:
    • Wash your face twice a day (no more) with warm water and a mild soap made to treat acne. Gently massage your face with circular motions. Don’t scrub. Over washing and scrubbing can cause skin to become irritated. After cleansing, apply an over-the-counter (no prescription needed) lotion containing benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid. This will decrease oil and bacteria.
    • Don’t pop pimples. It’s tempting, but here’s why you shouldn’t: Popping pimples can push infected material further into the skin, leading to more swelling and redness, and even scarring. If you notice a pimple coming before a big event, like the prom, a dermatologist can often treat it for you with less risk of scarring or infection.


    • Avoid touching your face with your fingers or leaning your face on objects that would collect sebum and skin residue like your phone. Touching your face can spread the bacteria that cause pores to become inflamed and irritated. To keep bacteria at bay, wash your hands before applying any form of product to your face, such as treatment creams or makeup.
    • If you wear glasses or sunglasses, make sure you clean them frequently to keep oil from clogging the pores around your eyes and nose.
    • If you get acne on your body, try not to wear tight clothes. They don’t allow the skin to breathe and may cause irritation. Scarves, headbands, and caps can collect dirt and oil, too.
    • Remove your makeup before you go to sleep. When buying makeup, make sure you choose brands that say “noncomedogenic” or “nonacnegenic” on the label. Throw away old makeup that smells or looks different from when you first bought it.
    • Keep hair clean and out of your face to prevent additional dirt and oil from clogging your pores.
    • Protect your skin from the sun. It may seem like a tan masks acne, but it’s only temporary. A tan may worsen your acne, not improve it. Tanning also causes damage to skin that will eventually lead to wrinkles and increase your risk of skin cancer.
