Make Up Forever Star Powder

RRP: 13.80 € (2.8 g)
no. of shades available: 32

--What does the promo say?--
"These loose powders, made of pure, ultra-fine mother-of-pearl particles, give the skin intense sparkle and unparalleled shine. They can be used alone, blended together, applied over other makeup or mixed with makeup of any texture to illuminate your makeup."

A nice little round black pot with a clear see-through lid. The product logo appears in black on the clear window. It all looks very nice; however, it can be difficult to properly close the screw-top lid, meaning that the possibility of wastage is high.

Apply with a brush or sponge applicator. Moisten the brush slightly for a tenfold increase in shine and hold.

Quite fine, but no better than most of its high street competitors.

It looks great on the eye with natural-looking colours that pack a touch of sparkle. Perfect on their own or blended with other colours.

Even better when applied wet, but doesn't last too badly when applied dry either. Creases slightly, but not so that anyone else would notice.

--Value for money--
A very classy brand for the money paid. However, at a mere 3 euros less, I'd go for Bourjois' Suivez Mon Regard, with its vastly superior packaging and comparable quality.

--Where to buy--
Sephora (US and France), most major French and American department stores.
