Palgantong Theatrical Powder in Original Beige

Hi everyone!

This post probably familiar with anyone who loves makeup and heard a lot regarding Palgantong. Yes, the famous makeup for theatrical used, loved and adore by Japanese and Korean is here.
Thank you so much PlusOne Asia for giving me this product!

The design of the packaging is simple and not much fuss on the details.

The one that caught my eyes is the masks, hmm theatrical indeed ^^

Please do read more details from their official site. Where later you will be allocated to and found this item sold for 1,890 Yen.

The powder comes in two shades, Original Beige and Light Beige. Please do click on any image to see it in larger view.

The booklet provide me so much information and I really appreciate it since the website is in Japanese language and some details even thou' I used Google Translate, it is still unable to read more than meets the eyes.

Pangantong Beauty Secret
Back in 1878, Ludwig Leichner of Germany started a business producing stage make-up and soon established a strong reputation for vivid colours and reliable products for make-up professionals.

Now in the 21st century, Palgantong with inherited methods and skills has successfully reestablished and reintroduced Leichner's famous products by creating a formulation specifically suited for Asian skin.

Slimming, long-lasting, super hydrating and many more.

The powder is delicate yet gives so many benefits for our skin, hmm, to good to be true?

What am I looking for in a powder?

Stays on in a time I want, sometime all day long, sometime an hour or two, depends on the needs.
Comfortable without being too dry or too cakey, or worst doesn't have any effect, I don't want that.
Suitable for any needs from dramatic makeup to daily.

And this powder does that. It helps me sets the makeup and make sure they stay there. Puff it everywhere when everything is done, it can be used before colors (after base makeup is done) or after all the colors is done. The powders help when you're feeling lazy, like BB cream + this powder and off you go for a natural look, or when you have this Gala thingy and wants the makeup to stays there and true without touch up for the whole night.

I can easily see why it is famous, the powder is ultra fine and to the touch it is very dry, so I can feel at east when they were in the T-zone but at the same time, it is gentle to my dry cheeks. It's like a wonder powder ^^

Tips, instead of the puff, a wide big brush would be better.

Final words: Try it to believe it!

Updated review:

I just got back from a summer holiday in Osaka for more than a week there and it was super hot and humid as well, the temp shows 36 degree Celsius and the humidity above 80% . I need a powder that claims to be super duper effective, so I use my Palgantong Theatrical Powder

The picture above is me using Palgantong Theatrical Powder in Original Beige, using Shu Uemura UV Under Base BB Mousse beneath, they work together just fine. I didn't do any touch up at all, I went from 9 AM and get back to the hotel usually around 10 PM. The base stays on super long and the credits goes to the powder (well, most of it since the UV BB Mousse also helps in terms of coverage)

I've used Shu's BB Mousse with other powder and it didn't last this long. The humidity and heat makes me drench in sweats but the makeup still looks really good. The photo was taken at Nishiki Market (Kyoto) around 2 PM after a long walk from the subway and again, no touch up whatsoever. It was almost unbelievable!

Tips from me is to pat the face in gentle tapping motion when sweating instead of wiping, the powder will stays set and no patches of blotchy nor breaking apart. Highly recommended for heavy duty usage and for those with normal to oily skin. Dry skin? Hmm, it does make my cheeks drier than usual after 3 days continually using the product, so after cleaning the makeup at night I use extra moisturizer on the cheeks with more hydrating effect and it would be just fine.

Oh yes, one more thing I found Palgantong Theatrical Powder to be very famous in Kansai (and prob anywhere in Japan as well) and it really is, every cosmetics store are selling these products and says it was No.1 in Best Seller or in Best Product Category, wow, amazing! I guess it's not just me that have proven to love this powder.
