I’ve been seeing MKUP’s video all over FB for awhile. And, finally I got really tempted and bought their Real Complexion Cream + Deep Pore Cleansing Mousse (ᗒᗨᗕ) The effects of their products look really impressive from their videos. I shall review the MKUP Real Complexion Cream first~~
Product: Real Complexion Cream
Overall Rating: 4/5
I like the packaging of the MKUP Real Complexion Cream. The product is only dispensed when you push the pump down. This means that the product will be more protected and can stay fresh for a longer time. (b^_^)b
The cream is in a pretty light pink shade (●♡∀♡)
1 pump is roughly enough for the whole face~
Gently spread and pat product onto skin.
Here’s a comparison between the skin tone before and after applying.
It brightens the skin and makes it look fairer. However, there is no coverage as this is a skin care product. Only darker areas of the skin will appear lighter. Spots/redness still have to be covered by concealer or foundation. This is good as a general makeup base for brighter-looking skin. For people with good skin, I think just this alone is enough as a base.
Here, I put only concealer to cover my dark circles and pimples.
Unless I am going to attend a special event, I usually put on a very light and natural makeup. So, I think this is perfect as a base for me! I only need to add on a bit of concealer. It replaces my use of cushion as base. And, since is a skin care and not makeup, it’s better for my skin too!
A quick summary:
- Bare Face
- + Real Complexion Cream
- + Concealer (under eye & pimples)
- + Brow & Tinted Lip Balm
Overall, it does brighten skin as claimed. And, I love the fact that there is no colourant, alcohol and paraben in the product. Great for people with sensitive skin. However, the hydration and dewy effect, which are also part of their claim, are not obvious upon application. It would be great if it could really make my skin look more dewy and moisturised. (´д｀)
Here’s how it looks after 8hrs out…
Skin still looks pretty bright~
Wiping it off with my Bioderma Micellar Water (cheek area where there is no concealer)….
No pigments indeed!
