I-Miix Magic Capsule Silky Make Up Base White

Second up from the treasure trove that is my August BNTNews beauty box is I-Miix's Magic Capsule Silky Make Up Base. I have not heard of I-Miix prior to this, so I was really happy to add a new brand to my lexicon.

Name: I-Miix Magic Capsule Silky Make Up Base 매직 캡슐 실키 메이크업 베이스 White 화이트
Price: ₩ 47,000 for 35 ml
Made in: Korea

Formulated with Corn Extract, Yeast Extract and Vitamin E, Magic Capsule Silky Make Up Base boosts and refreshes tired skin while protecting it from the elements for a flawless canvas all day long. It has extremely distinctive spherical particles that I can marvel over all day long.

The pearls are crushed by the pump mechanism resulting in a pearly white gel. This formula is best smoothed out with a sponge wedge because it is also able to sweep away bits of pearls. It provides a beautiful powdery canvas once it dries down and has a floral scent that is reminiscent of my lilac Castledew primer that I finished an eon ago.

The pearl white shade provides a fine layer to blur the appearance of fine lines, bringing luster back to the skin. With this primer, you can get away with using it all over your face (unlike coloured primers where you only use them over specific areas) for it imparts the most subtle effect. What's more, it even brightens slightly!

I find that it does not add longevity to my base makeup seeing as the foundation on my T-zone faded after a couple of hours. Additionally, it fails to stave off oiliness. However, it does prevent foundation from creasing around my mouth area which is a surprise considering how often I munch on something.

It is better suited for someone with drier skin who is looking for a moisturising base that brightens. I would have appreciated it a whole lot more had my skin be less oily!

I love the packaging of this product! It's so pretty and elegant with the pearls. With all the titanium dioxide in it, it probably offers decent sun protection as well?

Likely but I wouldn't rely solely on it for sun protection. A separate sunscreen would be advisable!
