Best Korean Powders

Without a doubt, Koreans are the new superpower of the skincare industry. Koreans are just obsessed with flawless, radiant skin. Their standard of skincare has risen to a very high level. Many Korean skincare enthusiasts commonly use up to 15 or more different products per day! Many  brands invested huge resources in their research and development to match the insatiable skincare appetite of the Koreans.

One of the less talked about Korean beauty products is powder, specifically what Koreans call ‘Finishing or On-the-Go Powders. These powder compacts are designed to be the final touch up or on the go touch up, used to preserve the applied makeup. These powders are formulated with oil absorbing ingredients that give the skin a matte finish.

Korean products are known for their use of natural ingredients in their finishing or touch up powders also. These powders control oil and preserve your applied makeup.

What is the difference between Korean and American Powders?

The key difference between Korean and the American touch up powders lie in their consistencies and product formulations. American powders give the skin more of a solidified,  cakey look whereas the Korean powders have a lighter, more breathable texture. In addition, even though both of the powders are made with mattifying components, the Korean powders tend to give the skin a healthy and translucent glow compared to the white and unnatural cast from American powders.
