#MiriamBeauty Tuesday, December 29, 2015
Annyeonghaeseyo my dear merry goers! Sorry for the lack of updates because I went back home for my birthday and Christmas and my schedule has been so packed! My past few updates has been focusing so much on food, I totally neglected the beauty readers so here's the latest news with #MiriamBeauty! Korean makeup has been a trend and it sure does not look like it will be fading anytime soon. With so many different Korean makeup brands, some of the popular well-known brands are like Innisfree, Etude House, Face Shop which are more of drugstore brands to high end ones like IOPE, Laneige, Missha, Hera and etc. In the past, we had to purchase it online or get our hauls during trips to Korea but now there have been so many brands entering Malaysia! Following the bandwagon is MCC Cosmetics from Korea which is actually the acronym for My Cherie Closet Cosmetics. Jin Ye Sol is the brand ambassador for MCC Cosmetics and to be honest I actually have never heard of this brand before a little birdie invited me to the launch.
Coincidentally, I was around on the day of the launch and well being MIA for so many events recently I obviously had to check this brand out. "More Creative, More Creative" is the brand's Philosophy which encourages customers to go wild and express their style using MCC products.
The launch was attended by several celebrities and models which really made the whole event rather happening. As MCC Cosmetics first flagship store is located in One Utama, you can imagine the crowd in front of the store. After the ribbon-cutting ceremony and the official group photo, it was time to show the highlights of MCC Cosmetics.
The makeup artist of MCC Cosmetics demonstrated two different makeup looks on the model both male and female, showcasing the versatility of the products which is suitable to be used for both male and female. One of the highlighted product is their Lip Tint which is super pigmented and long lasting as well as their makeup base products. There were two question and answer session where Rane won more goodies from MCC Cosmetics :)
Now it was time for us to actually enter the store and check out all their products. The shelves were full of different cosmetic products from Face, Lips, Eyes, Cheeks and etc. MCC Cosmetics have a wide range of nail products as well and their nail colours are really pretty especially for Christmas!
They have a wide range of Face products from their liquid foundation, compact powders, cushion foundation to BB creams and many more.
For those out there who are looking for gifts to give your female friends, you can also choose the selection of makeup palettes and products to pack it in their gift bag. I am sure that the receiver will be very happy with the products.
We were also given the chance to test out their products and here's Jessy getting her makeover. These products are really very suitable for both the young innocent Korean style makeup as well as the Western party look.
Now these are the products I have to rave about because I LOVE THEM! Trust me, if you were there you would have seen my eyes shine and sparkle at these eye shadow! I am in love with their eye shadows especially the single colour selection. The Glam Queen Eyes (RM65 each) are gorgeous, pigmented and to die for. One swatch of it and I just had to get it especially the 301 Shine Violet and 302 Miracle Violet shade. It has very subtle and small glitters which just glimmers slightly under the light making it suitable for both day and night looks. I really do not like glitter shadows that have large particles which makes it look rather tacky. The rest of the colors are really super pigmented too and did not have a lot of fall out when applied.
This is another feature that makes MCC Cosmetics interesting where they have a range of Green Tea products like their Green Tea mascara and Green Tea Pen Eyeliner. Although I have not tried these two products but I do know that green tea is a very good antioxidant product so I definitely would want to see what are the benefits of these product range.
As I have mentioned earlier, their Lip Tints are some of their popular products and my oh my they are seriously pigmented. I am still in that phase of using lip tints instead of lipsticks because I prefer a gradient lip look instead of bold lips so I would normally go for lip tints. One problem about really long lasting lip tints is that they can get rather dry on the lips especially if you have dry lips, you will have to keep touching up your lip makeup. MCC Cosmetics lip tint was surprisingly moist and had a nice shine to it like a mixture of a lip tint plus a lip gloss and it is not drying as well.
Honestly, I was out the whole day before the launch that night and my makeup definitely doesn't look as good as I would like it to be so the makeup artist helped to give me that touchup I need. She just used three products to give me that flawless but natural look which is the Perfect Finish Pore Pact which seriously gave me that smooth skin with just one brush! Adding on the lip tint and blusher to give me a natural flush and my face is all ready! That Perfect Finish Pore Pact is amazing and equivalent to all those photoshop to give you a smooth clear complexion. The photos above are without editing!
Honestly, for a brand that I barely know I am genuinely surprised and delighted with the range of products MCC Cosmetics have. Although slightly on the higher price range, if you are looking to try out their products I totally recommend the Glam Queen Eyeshadow, the Perfect Finish Pore Pact which will give you effortless touchups without getting cakey and their Lip Tints. Just get one of each and you will not regret it.
