Pigeon Powder Review

I've been reading good reviews about Pigeon Pressed Powder comparing it to Mac blotting powder which costs 1,200 Pesos. So I give it a shot! :)

I bought loose powder because I need a finishing powder. It is made from Japan and I read that this Pigeon is meant for babies, so you need not to worry for breakouts. Sounds great right?



There are 2 kinds of Pigeon pressed powder. One is made from Japan and the other one is from Indonesia. How to know?? Indonesia pressed powder has a mirror and Japan hasn't. Which one is better?? I've read that Japan Pigeon is better because of its quality.

Product to be reviewed: Pigeon Loose Powder
Price: 269.99 pesos/ 7$
Net WT.: 150g
Where to buy: Watson's, SM Department Store (Babies' Section)
Where did I buy: Babies' Section, SM Bacoor
For: Blotting Powder


The container is so cute. It's not like a cosmetic but more on for babies. I cannot understand what is written because it is in Nihongo.

Here is a swatch of the product:

When blended:

It highlights my veins. Haha. :)

Pogi Points:

1. It did control my oil for 4-5 hours.

2. It is very cheap. For the price of 270 Pesos and net weight of 150g, this could go a long way.

3. It has a tight cover before the cap. You don't have to worry for spilling.

4. It gives a translucent finish. Like you don't put anything on face.

5. It didn't give me breakouts while using this.

6. It is good for retouching.

7. No smell.

8. When applied, my skin becomes soft and flawless.

9. I've read that it's good for sweating underarms too. :)


1. The container is big. You have to buy for a smaller container where you can bring it with you.

2. It doesn't have much coverage and it highlights your blemishes. So if you have acne, you cannot wear this alone.

3. I hope there are shades to choose from.


I will give Pigeon loose powder a POGI POINTS OF 4.5/5 ✓. 

Mr. Pogi says:

I would highly recommend this for men who have oily and combination skin. It is like you are wearing nothing but it controls your oil.

For girls, this would be a good finishing powder. But if you want powder that has a good coverage, this is not for you.

It is indeed a dupe for Mac blotting powder and for some reviews, the only difference of two is the price. :)

I would repurchase this again. :)
