I’m a low-maintenance woman as far as makeup is concerned. Pressed powder and lipstick are enough for me. Being a busy work-at-home mom has a lot to do with this because I don’t really have the luxury of time to stay in front of the mirror for more than 15 minutes every day.
I am also a brand loyalist. Once I found a product that works for me, I don’t change brands anymore. I’ll use the same brand for as long as it’s available in the market. When the product is out of stock or when it’s already phased out, that’s the only time I switch to another brand.
But I’m always amenable to trying out new products only when there’s a sound reason to do so. I’ve been using a particular brand of pressed powder for the longest time, but I simply couldn’t resist to see how Myra E Shine-Free Face Powder would fare against my preferred brand.
My preferred brand and Myra E Shine-Free Face Powder are similar in many ways. They are both fragrance-free, hypoallergenic and dermatologist-tested. Both also give protection against the sun’s harmful rays. Myra E Shine-Free Face Powder, however, has SPF 15, while my preferred brand only has SPF 14. Another thing that gave Myra E the advantage is that it is enriched with Vitamin E. As we all know, Vitamin E helps repair the skin.
I conducted a simple test to see which of my preferred brand of pressed powder and Myra E Shine-Free Face Powder is better on my skin. Before I went to church today, I applied my preferred brand on my face. When I arrived home after church, I got rid of my preferred brand on my face and applied Myra E Shine-Free Face Powder. I know I violate makeup rules, but it has never been my practice to apply powder on my neck, too. This actually made it easier for me to check which brand is closer to my skin tone.
If you will notice, my preferred brand is one tone lighter than the color of my neck. Myra E, on the other hand, complemented it; it actually looks and feels like second skin!
Am I happy with my discovery? Absolutely! I’m actually not surprised that Myra E Shine-Free Face Powder is this good because it’s made by UNILAB, the name behind most of the health and wellness products we have at home.
