Mini Review + Giveaway: Madara Sun Flower Tinting Fluid + 30% Discount Coupon

Madara’s Moon Flower Tinting Fluid is my favorite tinted moisturizer thus far. To shrug off the nagging feeling that Sun Flower might be better suited for my skin tone, I tested it and found that it was a tad different from Moon Flower. Not bad different, depending on how you look at it.

Read on for the differences. There’s a giveaway and discount coupon offer after the jump!

The color match is near perfect to my current skin tone, which is more tanned than usual. I don’t think it’ll necessarily darken slightly lighter skin tones. It’s just that the golden/yellow undertones are distinct in Sun Flower while Moon Flower is pink-toned.

Sun Flower dries to a semi-matte finish, giving me less glow compared to the more hydrating Moon Flower. Regardless, it does not dry out my skin while feeling ultra lightweight. These are major plus points for oilier skin types and those who can do without the heavy feeling of foundation.

To my despair, the coverage that Sun Flower gives is also lighter but still sufficient to make my skin look naturally better. Instead of wearing it as a tinted moisturizer, I use it as a makeup base and it works well as one. The powder foundation that I apply over it grabs on better and I get the coverage that I want without piling on the product.

Available for RM128/50ml from Body Bar outlets located at Sunway Pyramid, Tropicana City Mall, and Pavilion as well as their online store.

Good News!!

Since the exchange rate has gone down for Euros, Body Bar has lowered the prices of all Madara products that they carry except for the Tinting Fluids.

Better News!!
