  • Mi pensis do. Ĉu vizaĝpudro/vizaĝpulvo & pafilpulvo/pafilpudro estas akceptebla uzi? I thought so. Are vizaĝpudro/vizaĝpulvo & pafilpulvo/pafilpudro acceptable to use?

  • Vizaĝpudro / pafilpulvo are ok (the other two combinations are weird). For the first one, ŝmink/o(Z) is a pretty common alternative. Commented Jul 26, 2020 at 21:10
  • Vizaĝpulvo would mean gunpowder for the face. Pafilpudro = cosmetic powder for guns. Commented Jul 28, 2020 at 18:45
  • If I ever write a book, I'm going to call it "vizaĝpulvo" as a joke. I don't know of any other language where such silly words are possible even if they make no sense.
