My mom gave me a spare bottle of Cyber Colors’ Essence UV Mositure Base that she have lying around as she didn’t want to waste it. Cyber Colors is apparently a Korean brand too. (I haven’t done any research yet) The product is - as suggested by its name - a make up base which u apply before your powder foundation. It is supposed to make the powder application much easier and long lasting too.
As I don’t use foundation, I didn’t really know if this product will be suitable for me ): I’m also not comfortable doing a full face make up (I always do my eyes and lips only. And occasionally splash on some highlighter that’s it.) and I’m concerned about clogging my pores and a potential allergic reaction.
On the bright side, the make up base has a dewy finish which would brighten your skin. And that was the reason my mom wanted me to use it. I did a patch test last night and I do like the dewiness - it’s subtle and blends well. No signs of allergic reaction and it’s also very lightweight! So I’m going to try using it for a few rounds to see its effects on my skin!
My usual morning routine:
And with the makeup base, I applied it after my sunscreen. Oh! I forgot to mention the makeup base also have spf +35, so more UV protection for me!
Anyway, the product is really lightweight and a little goes a long way. The viscosity is similar to my sunscreen, and it is tinted with beige. I couldn’t really see the difference yet, until I stand in the light. My skin did seem more dewy and bright!
I continued with my regular makeup routine and I added highlighter this time too. My skin still feels normal and not clogged so I’m really happy with that. I’m just a little bummed to realise that I have to remove a whole face of makeup now haha
Finished look and I like it! The base looks very subtle in general so I didn’t mind at all.
