Golden Rose Mineral Terracotta Powder Review

There’s something about certain makeup brands that amplifies my love for makeup – and I’ve experienced this with Golden Rose makeup, since I’ve been reviewing a few of their products.

This blog post focuses on the Golden Rose Mineral Terracotta Powder review – here is everything you need to know about this compact powder and additional insight on the Golden Rose Cosmetics brand.

  • Provides additional coverage
  • Protects skin from environmental damage
  • Sets makeup for up to 12 hours

Key Ingredients:

Mineral is the keyword for this Golden Rose face powder formula – zinc oxide, mica, silica, kaolin and magnesium are inclusions which help create a barrier for your skin against environmental damage thereby giving your complexion a youthful, radiant glow throughout wear.


I’m a girl who loves coverage for a flawless finish and this Golden Rose compact powder provides high coverage over any foundation.

This is a pressed powder compact – so it’s perfect for everyday application – quick and uncomplicated for those rushed mornings when we don’t have time for translucent powders but just as effective.

An additional benefit of using this powder is that it’s not drying to your skin, it’s a breathable formula that doesn’t cake or emphasize laugh lines or under eye wrinkles and I tested it for up to 12 hours, after which I found touch up is required.

Moreover, the colour variation of the powders are suited to warm, olive and yellow undertones – which is quite difficult to come by other brands – Golden Rose delivers!
However, there’s not a wide selection of shades to choose from – there are currently six shades on the Golden Rose website.
My colour match for this product is the Golden Rose Terracotta Powder 02.

This Golden Rose setting powder is conveniently packaged in a compact powder case which includes a powder puff for application.


12g retails for R160 – 00
Golden Rose makeup prices are affordable for the high quality this product delivers.

I’m impressed over with this compact powder from the Golden Rose makeup brand which, in my opinion is an overachiever of a product – I haven’t used a compact powder in ages as I felt pressed powders from other brands don’t deliver what I required. I’m thrilled I received this product to review – and now I’m hooked.
Translucent powders are saved for special occasions and I use this mineral powder for everyday use.

I find that my skin feels healthier as opposed to using other powders which left my skin feeling dry, making it appear dull over time – I love that this mineral powder helps my skin feel normal and fights against environmental damage – you can definitely feel this effect with continued use.

For me, makeup needs to offer more than merely makeup benefits – granted, a brand gets my attention if their makeup formulas pays attention to skincare as well and Golden Rose does this.
