Everyone’s obsessed with Korean skincare atm.
I’m more interested in Korean makeup. I have fair skin, so I really appreciate their light, natural formulas. You can layer them on without looking like you’re wearing a mask.
(I’m not a big fan of the Kim K look, if you haven’t guessed yet but hey, each to their own 🙂 ).
A Korean makeup brand that’s been on my radar for a while is MustaeV. I don’t know how they do it, but nothing I’ve tried from them has ever disappointed me.
Their two latest summer releases are no exception:
Cheeky Chic Blush in Light Coral
I’m so boring when it comes to blushes. I stick to one of two peachy pink shades, only venturing into a cool Barbie pink when I feel adventurous.
Light Coral is out of my comfort zone. It’s a peachy coral with warm undertones and a matte finish that warms up my complexion and gives it a fresh-faced look.
My skin is so pale, I always worry blushes will give me that not-so-sexy clown look. But, this one is impossible to overdo. It has a light colour payoff that’s easy to build up to your desired intensity.
It looks very natural on fair and medium-toned complexions. Dark damsels may find it too sheer even when layered.
The texture is amazing: light and creamy, it blends like a dream and lasts for 8 hours straight before it starts to fade away.
Silky Cotton Loose Powder In Baby Pink
Remember when I raved about the Silky Cotton Loose Powder last year? Now, there’s a new shade in town: Baby Pink.
The formula is the same: a finely-milled powder that feels incredibly lightweight on the skin, doesn’t set into fine lines and never looks cakey or unnatural.
Baby Pink is just as good at absorbing oil, keeping my shiny t-zone matte for around eight hours (a bit less when it’s crazy hot). While it’s at it, it also helps my makeup last longer.
What’s different is the colour. While the classic Silky Cotton Loose Powder is translucent, Baby Pink is a light, icy pink with cool undertones.
Its pink hue gives a fresh touch to the complexion, highlighting its natural brightness. I just pat it on with the puff for a pressed finish. It ensures a more even coverage, so I don’t have to worry about it fading in some areas sooner than in others. Phew!
Price & Availability: Cheeky Chic Blush in Light Coral, $20.00; Silky Cotton Loose Powder in Baby Pink, $25.00 at MustaeV
