Remember my earlier review on Sam Fong Traditional Powder that I purchased at Mr. DIY? See the similarity with this product packaging? Interesting right? It’s the Opera Lady!!! I encountered this cosmetic brand i.e. Palladio Beauty last month at Guardian Store at 1Utama. Out of curiosity, I purchased this product and wanted to give it a try and see if the product would works.
To be honest, I never ever purchase and use any blotting paper before. This was due to my skin condition that tends to be too dry sometimes so I do not necessarily need a blotting paper to blot away any shines. Furthermore, I seldom touch ups my makeups too unless if needed.
About the Product
These very unique tissues are made from natural rice and provide the same, great oil-absorbing functions as our Rice Powder—in a more compact form. Use the matte side to blot away shine throughout the day and the powdered side for occasional touch-ups. Packaged in a handy component, these tissues will fit inside even in the smallest purse or pocket, so you’ll never have to leave home without them!
This product is available in three shades i.e. Natural, Warm Beige and Translucent. I bought Translucent because I do not want the powder shade to jeopardize my original foundation / powder shade that I have worn prior. The product comes in a total of 40 sheets and each and every sheet comes in a size approximately 7 cm x 5 cm.
The rice sheets is made by Oryza Sativa (Rice) paper, Oryza Sative (Rice) Starch, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance (Parfum) and may also contain Titanium Dioxide CI 77891, Iron Oxides CI 77491 / CI 77492 / CI 77499.
When I saw the sheet material for the first time I was actually quite shocked because the material is not a “tissue” type although on the packaging mentioned “tissues”. The actual sheet material is made by very thin “paper” like material. Each and every sheet has a matte side for blotting the shines and powdered side (for my case is in Translucent) for touch-ups. The sheet has no prominent scent.
Since that I never use any blotting paper before, out of curiosity I used the powdered side to blot away the shines and it just works. I noticed that the powdered side is not necessarily will add more powder to the skin because the powder on the paper is layered very thinly and is just enough to blot away the shines.
But here is my thought about the product; Does the product works? – Yes. Does the product is necessary for me? – Nay
Available at Guardian, this product is retails at MYR20.90. For me its quit expensive for a blotting paper tho. I believe blotting paper available at Mr. DIY and Daiso would works just fine too.
I am looking forward for the Rice Powder (loose powder) from this cosmetic line in order for me to compare with the Traditional Sam Fong Powder. Please Palladio, bring the Rice Powder into Malaysian market soon!!!
What do you think? Would you give this product a try. Do let me know in the comment section below. Until we meet again in my next post!! XOXO
