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)


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.

- Matches my skintone perfectly.

- Gave my face distinct dimension.

- Mineral. No harsh ingredients.

- Smooth on the skin because it is finely milled.

- Although I'm a fan of matte bronzers, the shimmers in this product made my skin look glowy and healthy.

- Easy to blend.
- With active ingredients that will protect and beautify our skin.
- Affordable.
- A little amount goes a long way.

- The packaging doesn't look sturdy. Opening it can be a pain and it can be a bit messy, too.
- No applicator included.
- Has only one shade. Might not suit other skintone.
- Only available online.
