I bought a tube of Moisture Mist Pre-Makeup Cream because of my love-hate relationship with Moisture Mist’s Beauty Cake. I was hoping that the pre-makeup cream will help with application of the Beauty Cake, seeing as no other primer made any difference.
Moisture Mist’s Pre-Makeup Cream comes in a red plastic 25g squeeze tube. The white cream helps to illuminate the complexion and keeps makeup looking good for longer, plus it has an SPF18. It’s enriched with moisture, yet is a lightweight cream that enables a smoother application of foundation. It’s suitable for all skin types, and can be used as a protective day cream without foundation.
To use the pre-makeup cream, you simply smooth a small, pearl-sized amount over a cleansed face before applying foundation. Moisturiser can be applied underneath the pre-makeup cream, but it’s not necessary if you have oily skin like mine.
Well, I still have a love-hate relationship with my Moisture Mist Beauty Cake, and the application is still not perfect, but the pre-makeup cream does make application easier than without. I have tried other primers with the Beauty Cake, and Rimmel’s Stay Matte Primer just make the foundation cakey, while Nude By Nature’s primer also left the foundation looking cakey but also left me looking very oily a few hours later. So far, Moisture Mist’s pre-makeup cream seems to be the only primer that actually works with the Beauty Cake.
It is an expensive product, Moisture Mist’s products do not fall into the affordable category, but sit between affordable and high-end. Unfortunately, after my frustrating experience with the Beauty Cake, once this pan of Beauty Cake is done, I won’t be repurchasing more of the pre-makeup cream or a Beauty Cake refill.
