Hi Zuuchini,

I have been in my purple phase for about two years, and there is no sign of stopping…:)

Thank you for your comment again! :)

Come on PJ, I have been waiting for that Lavshuca Finish Powder – High Cover for years….hehe, just kidding, but I really want to know how you think before I purchase.

As from the name "high cover", can I just use a primer with it and skip the foundation one?

Also, what do you think about Sofina Perfect UV sun cream? It is perfectly matte on my combination skin but I think because it contains smoothing agent alcohol. Does it damage skin if used daily? Would be much appreciated if you can recommend a better sun cream.

Thanks very very much!

Hi there,

I am very sorry for my late reply, which is mainly due to the blog downtime…:(

I have tried High Cover and I will be posting the review (of both Lucent and High Cover) either today or tomorrow.

In terms of coverage, I don't think High Cover offers more than Lucent or most other loose powders from Japanese brands. I think you will still need a foundation if you want a sufficient coverage.

Thank you for letting me know that the Sofina Perfect UV has alcohol. (I have not tried it before.) I think that, if you live in a very warm and humid climate and if the alcohol doesn't irritate or dry out your skin, it should be okay to use it. I used to use Sofina's Very Very UV Cut Milk for a couple of years when I lived in a very warm and humid climate and it worked well for me, but I would never want to use it in the UK. The alcohol would certainly dry out my skin.

Hope it helps, and do please stop by and have a look at the Lavshuca Finish Powder review later. Thank you very much! :)
