Good day! Feel so good to finally be blogging again. hehe.
I'm back with a makeup review for you guys! heeee.
About two weeks ago, Jane from Babeskin sent me The Mutiara Abyra Foundation to be reviewed.
So.. to start with, let's talk about my first impression on the packaging. In a pretty peach, slightly embossed square box, contains a plastic product container of almost an exactly same size as the box. Pretty nice packaging I would say; sleek black and white packaging with the pearl image (suits the name 'mutiara') on it, compact and sturdy.
I love the cool magnetic lid! Inside, there is a separate product and the sponge part. The product's net weight is 8 grams which is a very decent amount that could last long, but, the sponge is quite small for my liking.
I received the foundation in the shade NUDE BEIGE which is just slightly lighter than my natural complexion.
The Mutiara Abyra Foundation is a kind of the Two Ways Cake Foundation that can be used dry or wet.
it is said to have UV protection but it is not stated clearly like how much spf or pa etc
Note that this product contains 2 kinds of paraben which I believe is the common kind of paraben that is used as an effective preservatives and correlated with a low incidence of contact dermatitis. after all, even Cetaphil contains paraben as well, right?
It is also stated that this foundation contains perfume, but I don't really smell anything out of it, maybe because I don't know how it is supposed to smell but there is nothing unpleasant about it, just like how a typical powder foundation should smell without the chemicals. na da. (Y)
Claimed to be formulated to minimize the appearance of pores and fine lines while creating a natural matte finish for the face and I agree to it. It instantly brighten up, reduce redness and mattify my complexion.
my skin is in the worst state it can ever be these days! blame the combo of high stress level because of my final year project, viva and thesis, disturbed beauty sleep and the imbalance female hormone haha. I have got no time to actually care but thanks to this foundation, I get to cover up in instance so I don't irritate other people's eyes haha.
medium coverage (sheerer effect) is achieved by applying just the powder with the dry sponge. it feels very dry especially if you have dry skin and it is not moisturized well therefore I would say that it is more suitable for those with normal to oily skin.
on the other hand, full coverage is achieved when you apply it with the dampened sponge. can be quite cake-y if you apply a lot. so.. yeah.. don't do that. haha.
besides, it lasts all day long!
this, doesn't break me out even more, so that's cool!!
Overall, I would rate this product with 4/5 stars! It is really worth trying!
Retailed for RM39 (Peninsular Malaysia) or RM49 (East Malaysia), you can place your order through the facebook page Babeskin365Official . :)
