[ REVIEW ] My Beauty Story
At first glance, I bet you think these are Korean products. No, it's Indonesian product. While I was in the hunt of some eyeliner, I was offered to checkout this brand. It was in store and I legit thought that it's a Korean brand and decline to checkout the brand as I was in a rush. But several days later I saw a post in My Tips Cantik about this very brand and remembered that I actually had encountered a section in my local drugstore. So then I browsed through My Beauty Story's website and found out that not only all of their products are parabens and phthalates free (some of them are also sulfates free), they are also affordable!!! I truly am interested in trying out some of their products. So here's my thought, ...
The Blush, in Rose
The blush has a light, soft, rosy pink. This blush is a lip and cheek kind of product but I never actually used it on my lips. It actually not that pigmented and when applied, it's quite sheer and it just blends nicely to your skin. Even though it's sheer, it gives a nice glow, dewy effect to your cheek and if you feel like you need to get a "pinched" effect, you can slowly build it up to your liking. As this is a cream blush, you need to be careful and precise in placing the blush to your cheek. Just because it's sheer, it doesn't mean that this blush will just wore out throughout the day. The staying power is quite strong if you set your makeup right.
Mineral DD Loose Powder, in Medium
This mineral loose powder sets my makeup quite well. But since I lost the puff along with the boxes, I need to apply this with my brush and I feel like with the puff, my makeup will look a bit more perfect. This product is mattifying enough to keep my oil at bay and it has UV protection of SPF17. But if you're exposed to the heat quite harshly, you need to keep this in your purse for a quick touch up - just make sure that you're not sweaty, unless you want your face to look cakey.
CC Cream Real Complexion
I wanted to try this product so bad when I saw it on the website. As you can read on the photo above, it claims to do many things and I can say that all of them are true. I was so happy to finally get a pump to my cream because it makes the product more hygienic. This CC cream has a pleasant, familiar fragrance to it, like a lotion that I used to use when I was in Junior High. Oh ...and after the third time of using this product, I feel like my skin adjusting well to the cream and to get the "real complexion" you need to let the cream sink in for approximately 1 minute. It gives a dewy finish and even though I don't quite like dewy finish in general, I can't lie that my face glows with healthy radiance. Don't forget the SPF 30 and PA++. Impressive, I must say ... but my face produced more oil than before after 5 hours and it was so visible, yet I didn't really dust my face well with the powder also didn't do any "touch up" just because I want to test the endurance of this CC Cream as I used this product for 21 hours for a trip. and yes, to answers the question... I have the shiniest face, ever. It will be a whole lot of different if I add a dash of some powder.
