REVIEW | Pretty Young Thin (contouring powder) by Krave Minerale

The first time I really practiced applying makeup on my face, I did not include contour. I only found out the goodness it brings by watching Youtube tutorials. Now, it's my favorite MU routine.


I have used different types/brands for contouring and one of my favorite is this Pretty Young Thin from Krave Minerale, a brand here in the Philippines which manufactures mineral makeups and organic beauty products.


Product claims:


PRETTY YOUNG THIN (Face Contouring powder)

with NATURAL SPF & Rice powder

3 grams net. wt.

If you think this is just an ordinary bronzer, think again. PYT is made up of super refined mineral powder that is made up of cruelty free; pure mineral pigments that gives you an illusion of slimmer and more contoured face. What makes it more unique is the added ingredient of RICE POWDER that is a very good skin brightener, anti-oxidant, and anti-inflammatory agent. Follow the steps on how you can use this contouring powder to add allure on your regular make up routine. (See photo next to this)

SKIN BENEFICIAL KEY INGREDIENT:

RICE POWDER -contains a high concentration of PABA. PABA (para aminobenzoic acid) is a very good sunscreen. Rice also contains two other sun protecting agents – ferulic acid and allantoin.

Ferulic acid is an antioxidant. Incredibly, scientists have found that when ferulic acid is added to Vitamin C and E, its sun protection ability doubled.

Allantoin is a good anti-inflammatory agent. It soothes sunburns and also promotes the skin’s repair.
