Hello pretty ladies! I am super excited to share with you my latest findings. I am still testing out on this powder so any of my thoughts mentioned here would be from my first experience / expression using this powder foundation.
I am not an avid fan of powder foundation since few years back. I think they just dont give that much coverage and would look cakey on my face especially on the dry patches that i always have underneath my eye, near my nose and near the tip of my mouth. I always feels like liquid foundation would be the perfect way to seal all those patches away.
I am not a HUGE fan of MAC Cosmetics. I think it is way too overrated. I came across this foundation and purchased it because i need to have a powder foundation to touch up my makeup after my prayers. A powder foundation is much easier, that’s why i chose this. It was also a recommendation from the beauty advisor in MAC, saying that this would be the latest innovation of foundation. Well, i bought it and tried it for a week now.
My shade is between NC20/NC30. This particular powder, i purchase it in the shade of NC30. Something similar to my skin shade color.
As usual, MAC Cosmetics foundation case. It comes with a mirror and applicator sponge underneath the powder. The powder is said to have a marine bright formula that will stays matte once applied. Well, to me most of the powder foundations are matte after all. It also has SPF 25/PA+++ suitable for day use. In the website it says that it offers medium to full coverage of application. To me, this would be just about medium. Probably my skin is allergic to powder foundation nowadays.
The color is pretty bright for my hand skin but it looks okay on my face skin. I don’t really like the smell of the sponge applicator though. I would most probably apply this foundation next using my brush instead.
This would be my face before applying the powder foundation. It looks dull and boring. Haha.
Right after applying, my skin looks brighter and whiter. I mean, it looks like it is full coverage here but in real life, it only appears as medium coverage instead. I love the feelings after applying but i dont like the feeling of it while applying as it has that tingling sensation feelings on my skin. Probably, i am not a powder foundation kinda person afterall.
To me, i am still trying to love this foundation. A bit struggling it loving it but i am not hating it either. So, i have to test it out even more after this.
You may purchase this foundation at any available MAC Cosmetics stores or online at MAC Cosmetics.
Each case and foundation sold separately. Case for RM42 and foundation with sponge costs RM135.
