I’ve been wanting to haul from Shopping99 for a while now but never got around to it. Mainly I wanted the Mugu Peach Makeup Collection they had going on. It was cheap, it was cute, and it smelled of peaches. What more could a girl want? My obsession with peach makeup stems from the Etude House Peach line that I got a while back ago so of course the Mugu stuff was topping my must have it list for a fair while.
I just never got around to actually doing my order but I was recently pleasantly surprised when my mate Rows included the Mugu Peach Liquid Foundation in a box she sent over to me.
You’ve no idea how excited I was about this foundation, it’s just too cute.
Take a jump for the word!
Mugu Peach Liquid Foundation comes housed in what feels like a glass bottle to me? Not sure if it’s heavy plastic or glass but it’s a pretty nice bottle for foundation. It’s a really princess-y in a faded peach design with a pump applicator. Quite cute and vanity worthy.
The actual foundation is scented like a fresh peach, this is in fact the novelty of the item for me. Absolutely adore that it’s peach scented. The foundation itself surprised me as I expected it to win my heart over. Now the foundation isn’t for everyone as it comes in one shade. This is typically the case with most Asian foundations, one maybe two shades are released. In this case it’s available in a single universal shade suitable for yellow undertones or medium/fair complexions. It’s a perfect shade for me but the love affair ends here. Good formula, blends smoothly, absorbs quickly, etc….but it doesn’t really do much for my skin. Part of the problem is it actually absorbs too quickly and doesn’t offer much in the way of coverage. My main reason for using foundation is because my skin is dull, particularly in the Winter so I want something to make my skin look awake and fresh this sadly fails on that level.
Overall, the super cute packaging totally thrills me and the peach scent is too cute. The price is also a key factor for wanting it as it’s cheap as day old chips but sadly the formula needs a little bit work. I’m so happy to have it for my collection but rather saddened it didn’t have completely great results. I’ll definitely use on my off days for lighter coverage but when I want to look flawless I may have to stick to my regular BB Cream.
Mugu is an inexpensive Taiwanese makeup line available exclusively at Shopping99. They do ship worldwide but you have to know how to navigate the site so if you have a friend who can read Chinese perhaps they can help you to order!
