How have all of you been girls?
Today I have a review for you and its a mineral make up review.
These samples were sent to me by MATTIFY MINERAL COSMETICS for review.
First of all a little introduction to Mattify Cosmetics:
WHAT MATTIFY COSMETICS HAS TO SAY ABOUT ITSELF:
Oily skin requires products with built-in oil control. Mattify! Cosmetics provide you with makeup for oily skin that contains an oil absorbent kaolin clay base – to continuously soak up oil all day long. Kaolin Clay is a natural clay that absorbs an astonishing 3x its weight in oil.
~Mattify ULTRA tinted powder in Fair/Med ~
Mattify describes it as:
As concealer: to spot-cover blemishes or freckling
Alone: to even out skin tone while blurring pores and fine lines
Over foundation: for long lasting makeup and poreless, even finish
This is a tinted mineral powder that I applied here on my hand to show in a clearer way.Its purpose is to control shine.I have OILY SKIN thats why I have been able to analyse this powder in every perspective.It minimizes the appearance of pores and covers blemishes well enough.In this picture I have worn it over my entire upper hand portion and the difference that you see in the tone is because on the lower side I have applied the transparent powder & then the mineral tinted powder.To me it gives a better,clean and soft look when used with the transparent powder.If worn alone its coverage is buildable and though it appears light on the skin but still gives great coverage.Its staying power is around 2 hours but with the transparent powder it can last for a double period of time.I am overall satisfied with it.Its 30 gm jar is priced at $16.50 which is a bit pricier for me compared to other drugstore brands available in Pakistan.
~Mattify Senstive transparent powder~
I would rather say i Love this transparent powder better than the tinted powder.It provides for the need of a good primer prior to foundation whether liquid or powder.It appears very whitish in the sample bag and I was worried that how it would appear on the skin but I was surprised to see that when it blends well into the skin it not only appears as a base but adds glow to the skin.Here you can spot the difference on my hand with and without the transparent powder.It controls shine on oily skins like me and minimizes the open pores.When this powder is applied with a liquid foundation it gives a very matte look.It is highly recommended to people with oily skin looking for a good primer.This powder is priced at $10.99 for a 30 gm jar.
~Mattify sparkling eye shadow in Summer Storm~
This is a metallic grey color & can be used both dry & wet for eye shadow purpose whereas can be worn wet for an eyeliner purpose.Here I have swatched them without an eyeshadow base and I would like to say that its necessary to apply a base to make them appear more pigmented and to make them last longer.
What I have to say about it:
This is a copper shade with more of a orange hue to it.The sparkles in it make the shade shine in sunlight.It appeared to be very different when swatched than the color that appeared inside the sample bag.I thought it would be more of a copper but it turned out to be more orange for me.When used wet its better than dry version.
Here I have tried to use both the colors as nail colors using a transparent top coat nail polish mixed with a bit of eye shadow and it came out like this!
What do you think of it?I think I would better use them as eye shadows only 🙂
Thanks a lot for reading.
Stay Happy Always,
