KISS Moist Angel Powder R 6g 1,680円 (税込)
KISS is a cute little drugstore brand under Passion NY (despite the name it’s a Japanese brand :P). They have a range of makeup products, but I only have two of their loose powders as the rest of the lineup doesn’t interest me much.
As the product name implies, this loose powder claims to provide a skin care effect when used and is supposed to be not drying on the skin. It contains hyaluronic acid, silk powder, amino acid derivatives and chamomile essence to achieve this. It also claims to give the effect of “angel skin”. XD
While I haven’t noticed “angel skin”, it’s a great quality for a drugstore product. I like it! XD (Although the price does work out not inexpensive when calculated per gram… :P)

GIORGIO ARMANI Micro-Fil Loose Powder 15g
I purchased this in shade #1, the lighter of the two beige shades my counter had. The third shade, #0, is a translucent shade. #0 looks white in the container and has a lot more shimmer than both #1 and #2, both of which are by no means matte by any definition.
By weight, there’s 15g of powder in each container, but the amount supplied is actually comparable with the 30g tubs of more typical loose powders.

NARS Loose Powder 45g
I started using this again recently, paired with Dr. G Hydra Intensive BB Cream, and I’m liking it much better this time. It’s a matte powder with no shimmer. The MA matched me to Eden, which is a shade with yellow undertones for medium skin tones, but it’s actually too dark for me. I use it with bases that are too light, and I think it still looks sort of okay. (… Probably!)

MIKIMOTO Eturia Loose Powder 30g
I use the pink shade, but there is also a beige shade (which I haven’t tried). As someone else noted previously, pink is probably more suitable for fair skin tones as it would not match darker complexions. The “pinkness” of this pink shade, if there is even such a word, is, however, very subtle, and the powder looks more of a neutral beige in the container.
