Silkygirl Magic BB All-In-One Powder Foundation

I've always found make up very fascinating because it has an ability to transform not only how I look, but also how I feel. As much as people say that it is better to be natural, I still feel the need to apply make up because I feel empowered with it on. And I am certain that many ladies feel the same way as me. The moment you see the effect make up has on yourself physically, mentally and emotionally, it's tough to stop.

I started applying make up when I was only 13. I've always been a very self conscious and extremely vain girl so it's no surprise that I fell in love with cosmetics from a very young age. I remember SILKYGIRL's coloured eyeliners being the first few make up products I owned, and I was in love with them. My friends and I would buy a new colour whenever we had enough savings to, and shared them among each other. It was a lot of fun.

Over the next couple of years, I started collecting more and more cosmetic products. I had everything from lipsticks to eye shadows to eyeliners. But the funny thing is, I've never really been a fan of foundations or face powders. Up till this day, I try to refrain myself from wearing foundation unless I REALLY need to. I just found it quite a hassle to pick the right shade for my skin tone, and I don't like to idea of having a layer of product over my entire face. 

Also, most of the foundations I've tried don't really give my skin much coverage, and I still have to turn to my trusty old concealer at the end of the day. Hence my mind's always thinking - what's the point of spending extra cash on something pretty pointless? However, the new SILKYGIRL Magic BB All-In-One Powder Foundation proved me wrong.

As it's name suggests, it truly works like magic. I have pretty uneven skin tone, and I've been told about it countless amount of times, hence I am super thankful for this product. Not only did it give me an even skin tone, it also brightened and smoothened my skin overall thanks to the added Sakura and Mulberry leaf extract. In case you weren't aware those two natural ingredients are powerhouses of nutrients and contain antioxidant properties. In other words, good stuff for the skin.

Apart from that it is able to keep our skin hydrated and moisturised thanks to the wild Mango butter and Calendula flower extract. For those of you with oily skin like me, you'll be happy to know that this product also contains Silica, which absorbs excessive sebum, giving the skin a natural and matte finish. That's excellent news for us since we live in a country with such humid weather.

The SILKYGIRL Magic BB All-In-One Powder Foundation is also SPF35/PA+++ and formulated specially for Asian skin. So you can be assured your skin is well protected while looking flawless. My favourite part of it all is that this product did not undergo any animal testing :)

Above is how my skin look like without any foundation or powder applied, and it is obviously not as perfect as how I'd like it to be. The uneven skin tone caused by past pimple scars and dark under eye circles are screaming for attention. The skin around my forehead looks somewhat discoloured as well, probably due to constant exposure to the sun.

Applying the SILKYGIRL Magic BB All-In-One Powder Foundation was a breeze as it came with a little sponge applicator. And that's why I adore drugstore make up, because they are always user friendly unlike most high-end cosmetic products. Also, they burn a much smaller hole in your pocket. 

We can't deny that there are controversies stating that drugstore make up isn't good for your skin or health, but look at me, I've been using them for about 8 eight years now, and I'm still in good health, and there isn't any major problem with my skin. 

What I'm trying to say is that drugstore makeup does the job as well as high-end make up, but they're a lot more affordable and all those myths aren't true. Not that I did any intensive research, I just took myself as an example.

Just look at how much brighter my skin looks after applying just one thin layer of the SILKYGIRL Magic BB All-In-One Powder Foundation. I think I look radiant too, which is something that doesn't happen to me often due to my dull skin. All imperfections are concealed and pores minimised without the help of any concealer, so I am highly impressed with this product. Most of all, it feels very light weight on my skin.

To complete the look, I went ahead and coloured my lips with the SILKYGIRL Matte Fever Lipcolor Balm. I'd choose matte lipsticks over glossy/shiny ones any day. They just look a lot more polished in my opinion. But most of the matte lipsticks I've tried made my lips feel dry and cakey, but not these ones! Thanks to the balm-like properties, they feel soft and smooth on my lips without compromising on the intensity of the colour.

Here are the colours Vogue, Desire and Siren.

I love how easy it is to apply them thanks to their sleek, retractable packaging. Also they work just like a lip liner, lipstick and lip balm altogether. The colour payoff is excellent, you can tell how pigmented they are from the following pictures.

All in all, I had an enriching experience using SILKYGIRL products again after quite a long time. They've proven to be a brand that young ladies can count on, since they offer affordable but good quality products. The SILKYGIRL Magic BB All-In-One Powder Foundation and Matte Fever Lipcolour Balms are already available in stores.
