BYS Minerals Naturale Compact Foundation in Natural Beige

4:30:00 PM

Here's something new that I have been testing out for a couple of weeks now. The shade Natural Beige is two shades lighter than my skin tone, but I love using this to highlight certain areas.

Product Info from BYS Cosmetics
BYS Minerals Naturalè Compact Powder Foundation is formulated with 100% Natural Minerals. It is a non-irritating formula suitable for all skin types & won’t clog your pores. 
It offers you full coverage with a natural, lightweight finish.

Available in 6 shades

Retail Price: Php 679.00

Can be bought at Watsons and SM Department stores

Like all BYS Cosmetics products, this has a black plastic packaging too. This compact does not come with a mirror or sponge, which makes it very lightweight.

Here are the ingredients. If you notice, this contains mostly of mineral makeup, which is a good thing since it is safe for your skin.

The texture feels very soft, smooth and silky. This does not have a completely matte finish but has slight sheen to it, which gives a natural glow to my face. It feels rather light and gives a light to medium coverage. It stayed for a good 5 hours on my face before it started to fade. I have normal skin and I work in an air conditioned environment, so I am not sure how long this will last on other skin types.

What I like about it...
* affordable price
* has a sheer coverage, which I find perfect as a finishing powder
* gives a natural glow on my face, that's why I love using this as a highlight powder
* has a silky smooth and lightweight texture
* has a decent staying power, lasts for about 6 hours on me
* has good oil control
* not chalky at all
* I did not experience any irritation or allergies

What I don't like...
* has a cosmetic scent which I find annoying, however the smell disappears after application
* has cheap packaging, so you'll have to be careful not to let this fall
* does not come with a mirror

My rating: 4 / 5

Overall, I do like this powder compact. I just wish it didn't have have that strong scent. But quality wise, this is surprisingly a really good sheer powder with great oil control. If you are not bothered by cosmetic scents, then I suggest you try this. However, I would not recommend this to those with troubled skin.

Until next time.

  1. I like the glow, i think this can be a great setting powder (especially given that it has a slight shimmer!)

    1. not really shimmer, but more like a pearlescent sheen ^_^

  2. I guess this isn't for me then. :P Thanks for the review! :D

  3. This product looks promising! Kind of pricey though. I've heard BYS products are made from China and not Australia :(
