My Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Pact Review!



I love “window shopping” in Althea Korea to scout for new KBeauty products to try. In a recent haul, I was searching for a basic finishing powder that’s pressed, not loose. Most translucent powders I own are loose and is difficult to bring around. I read good reviews online so I decided to purchase it and see for myself. While I do not have oily skin, I struggle with acidity and oxidation. Makeup turns orange on me and looks muddy after a few hours of wear. I’m not fond of using primers because I haven’t found “the one” yet and I like something multipurpose. One that sets makeup, and easy to carry for retouching.

My full and easy-to-digest review at the end of this post.

Price: 480php and I got it from Althea Korea!

Althea Says: Those with oily skin do have many tricks up their sleeves to keep shine at bay and ensure that their makeup stay perfect all day long. One of the tricks lie in the No Sebum Mineral Pact, a sebum-absorbing, oil-control compact that leaves your skin soft and shine-free.. Think of it as a replacement for oil blotters, and in a cute, easy-to-carry compact! It works by controlling sebum secretion, and its infusion of Jeju minerals and mint restores a normal moisture-oil balance in your face.
Size: 8.5g
Type: Oily skin type
Color: Translucent
How To Use: The mineral pact can be used either in the final stage of your skincare or makeup routine. Use the powder puff to gently dab the powder all over your face, or concentrating on T-zone areas.



Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Pact Review


  • Packaging – It comes in a tiny mint green plastic compact with mirror and puff.
  • Coverage – Minimal coverage
  • Staying Power –  Kept my makeup intact the whole day.
  • Oil Control – Kept my face matte for 3 hours.
  • Shade/Finish – Color white in the pan. It applies translucent on skin even after 3 layers.
  • Texture – Super silky
  • Scent – No detectable fragrance
  • Final Thoughts – I’m not sure if it’s the powder or its combination with my Club Clio Kill Cover Cushion but based on my selfie above, I look poreless and flawless! The powder is good enough for me but not enough to really WOW. It didn’t break me out, and I feel like the compact will last a long time. My face literally looks smooth in real life and in photos. No need for filters. I like that the compact is small enough to fit a purse and it’s not so pricey. I use the puff when retouching but use a brush when I use to set my makeup. Will I buy again? Nope. I’m still searching for that powder that does not only mattify but also has skincare benefits. Lots of extras. I want my powder extra extra.
