Powder foundations are still the go-to for many Singapore women, because of the practicality and ease of appication, as well as the fact that most women here have combination skin. But a lot of powder foundations don't glide on that smoothly or have a cakey look when reapplied mid-day. 

Chanel Ultrawear powder

Chanel's Ultrawear Flawless Compact foundation beats the competition with a super light, buildable texture that blends effortlessly into skin, and has a soft matte finish that's designed to last. In addition, the compact's perfect light diffusion complex contain hemispheric powders that diffuse light, imbuing skin with a radiant glow — softening the look of pores. Best of all, even under high tempeatures and humidity, this gives skin a fresh look, for up to eight hours. This comes in seven skin-flattering shades designed to melt in for a second skin finish.
