My face was itching to try a new foundation, so I purchased one from Depilex College of Cosmetology, when I was over there to attend a workshop on the guidelines of makeup.
The ladies enrolled for the workshop were introduced to the wonderful range of cosmetics MM Makeup had to offer.
It is there, I had a chance to try on different shades of MM Makeup Silk foundations, whilst I finally settled for the shade Latte, I mentally made a note of blogging an honest review on the product.
MM Makeup has been around for quite some while, and I’ve always wanted to try the foundations ever since I heard of Masarrat Misbah launching her own makeup line.
I have been using this foundation for over 3 years now and have sooo given it a holy grail status in my makeup stash. Masarrat Makeup is the first Halal Certified Makeup brand to launch in Pakistan.
MM Makeup does not contain any animal substances or intoxicants in the entire product range.
MM Makeup is focused on a color range best adapted for the Asian skin tone, climate and complexion, with an emphasis on textures, colors, pigments and most importantly formulations.
The best features of MM Makeup Silk Foundation are:
1. No SPF (great for flash photography)
2. Satin matte finish
3. Barely visible and natural-looking on the skin
4. Medium to full coverage
5. Weightless feel on the skin
6. Liquid foundation
7. Silky texture
8. Suits normal and dry skin types
9. Fragrance free
10. 13 shades (all listed below):
8) Warm Golden
9) Natural Warmth
10) Warm Oak
Texture & Finish: The MM Makeup has a silky texture and a satin matte natural-looking finish. MM Silk Foundation is not dewy and it doesn’t leave your skin looking extra glowy, like a Bodyshop foundations I own. Having said that, this foundation is light enough to let the natural glow of your skin come through.
Coverage: MM Silk Foundations have a good medium coverage, which can easily be built up to full coverage. If you’re looking for a very light base with sheer coverage like BB creams and tinted moisturizers or if f you’re wanting some light-medium or high-medium coverage foundations, then this foundation may be just what you’re looking for.
One very light layer of this foundation covered my black spots that I have been lately experiencing after a reaction from an antibiotic I recently had.
MM Silk foundation left my skin looking naturally perfected; what I like the most about this foundation is how invisible it looks on the skin. I literally could not detect any trace of this foundation on my face! It was only after I applied a second layer that the foundation became ever so slightly visible.
Even with one layer of the foundation on my face, it covered all of my skin concerns (pigmentation and redness) without looking cakey or heavy.
Formulation & Application: MM Makeup Silk Foundation has a liquid formulation that is neither creamy nor runny and it’s best applied with a buffing brush or a good quality beauty blender. The average liquid texture aids to that very ‘barely visible’ natural finish I mentioned above.
This foundation does not contain SPF in its formulation, which means it’s ideal for flash photography. Do remember to wear a separate SPF on your face before sun exposure! The best way I found to apply this foundation was with the Real Techniques Buffing Brush; I found that I got the most natural-looking finish with this brush, compared to when I applied it with a Beauty Blender, which made the foundation look a bit less flawless and emphasised my dry patches.
FINAL VERDICT: The best features of this foundation in my opinion are the lack of SPF, the weightless feel and the invisible look on the skin. It’s not as long-wearing as Luminous Silk, but it looks a lot more natural on the skin. I would recommend this foundation for normal to dry skin and I think it’s worth the price tag!
