I can confidently say that the Japanese best-selling loose setting powder is “Face Powder” from Cosme Decorte!! This item is made of the finest quality powder, organic silk powder, and the powder was crumbled into tiny tiny powder by the manufacturer’s original technology. I mean the powder is super sophisticated.

This powder makes skin glowing and prevents the skin from getting dried though this is powder. Also, it works effectively for covering the bumpy skin and making the skin smooth in addition to hiding pores. Your skin will be like silk thanks to this powder!

It seems “00 translucent” (light pink) is the top-selling shade.
* “00 trans Lucent” is light pink, and “11 luminary ivory” is muted pink. (11 is lighter than 00.)

This is powder, but it keeps skin moisturized and glowing because of oil included in it as its product name. The good news is that this powder doesn’t make your skin flaky.

What is special about this powder is that it includes 3 different sizes of pearl powder, and it makes the most of light reflection. This powder has plenty of product reviews, and it is often introduced on SNS, which means this item is very popular and trendy.

This would be a satisfactory item for those who have dry skin.

  • Light medium (beige)

This powder was renewed in August 2021, and the series has big fans who value it highly and use it repeatedly in spite of its price. This is one of the top selling items among SHISEIDO’s high performance beauty products.

The powder is high quality, soft and very tiny and sticks very firmly to skin. Also, makeup doesn’t get smudged if you put this powder after foundation. Also, the powder obscures pores, skin dullness and small wrinkles by making skin glow.

The biggest reason why this is beloved regardless of its price is that this powder makes skin look very beautiful and clear and that the effect lasts for hours.

  • Finishing Powder Glow (with pearl and shimmer): 4 shades – 781 natural, 784 light ocher, 788 lavender and 789 honey
  • Finishing Powder Moist: 3 shades – 771 natural, 773 clear and 774 light ocher

Chacott’s “Finishing Powder” series is super popular among women in a wide range of age groups. The biggest reason is that it is very reasonable but high-quality. Also, since this powder contains 30g, you can use it everyday as much as you want. I’ve been actually using the shade 764 for more than 10 years!

Since Chacott is a company which produces goods for ballet and dance stages, the powder is designed to prevent the makeup from getting smudged by sweats and other damages.

There are 3 types of powders: the normal “Finishing Powder Matte” (30g, ¥1,320), “Finishing Powder Glow (with pearl and shimmer)” (30g, ¥1,980), and “Finishing Powder Moist” (20g, ¥1,980). The difference between “Finishing Powder” and “Finishing Powder Glow” is whether the powder includes pearls and shimmers or not. What is special about “Finishing Powder Moist” is that it keeps skin moisturized, and it can be used by those who have dry and/or sensitive skin.

  • 01 Peach beige
  • 02 Peach glow

excel’s “Extra Rich Powder” series is on sale every winter. (It is very convenient, however, we can purchase them throughout the year on e-commerce sites.) The shade “01 Peach beige” consists of pink pearlescent powder, and the shade “02 Peach glow” consists of multi-color pearlescent powder such as pink, purple, blue, green, orange, gold and silver!

The powder includes 3 types of oil and ceramide powder, and it makes your skin glowing. If you feel like wearing light makeup, a primer and this powder would be enough as it conceals skin problems such as redness and skin dullness.


KANEBO “Smooth Feathery Powder” (18g)

*KANEBO is also available at department stores.

 Price  5,200 yen (Refill 4,400 yen) (tax included)

KANEBO’s Smooth Feathery Powder is released in September, 2020, and therefore it is a relatively new cosmetic item.

The powder which includes pearlescent powder is super tiny and fluffy, but it has enough coverage to hide redness on skin and pores. It is colored in muted beige, but it keeps the transparency made by the preceding foundation. The finish look would be matte and silky smooth. Also, it is said in product reviews that the powder doesn’t get skin dried.

This is popular among women over 30s, and I guess that’s because it is relatively pricey for loose setting powders. You have to purchase a container and powder puff for the first time, but the refill is 4,400 yen.
