Isn't it contradictory to have liquid powder? Maybe they didn't have a term for face cream yet? Is this any good?

BTW The embossing reads DE MERIDOR'S / LIQUID / BEAUTY POWDER.

I like it, it would go good with my Odd Ball Embossing group.

Thanks for chiming in guys. That's a decent price, I suppose, for a medicine that is not pontilled or colored.

I have no idea about the history of make-up but maybe this is from the time when liquid foundations first came out. Ladies powdered their faces to cover blemishes...now they could use a 'liquid powder' to cover them. Just a very wild guess.

That makes sense to me. I'm old enough to remember when women used only powder, I think. I know I dislike makeup of any kind. Didn't use to be so particular.

I always hated make-up. After I got engaged to my husband he told me he preferred no make-up...I was very happy to oblige.

Yea. You know my wife usually doesn't wear make-up and she looks beautiful without it. Now and then she puts it on which is fine too.

Liquid powder though. It probably has that wet dry feel.
