Mai Couture Review : Face Papier Collection

Mai Couture was created by Mai Tran, a makeup artist herself, who believes that formula and packaging are two vital elements that make a brand. With that in mind, the Face Papier Collection was born. This collection is for everyone but targeted especially for people who don't usually have much time to apply/re-apply their makeup and are always on-the-go. These could range from travelling makeup artists to event planners.

So what's in this Collection? Currently they have three main products which are the 2 in 1 Oil Blotting Bronzing Papier, Blush Papier and Rejuvenate Oil Blotting Papier. In simple terms, they are all paper material which comes in 3 different forms; a bronzer, blusher and the typical oil-blotting sheets. According to their website, "The collection has it all: you can remove excess oil, add color to cheeks, get a glowing complexion, or simply refresh and revitalize your skin."

2-in-1 Oil-Blotting Bronzing Papier

First of all, I must say, the packaging is absolutely gorgeous! It screams out elegance and *money!! The gold chains in contrast with the simple but chic black wallet, oh My God, major loves.

Besides that, I don't really see much use to these products. You can say I'm pretty traditional. I'd rather much prefer using a brush to apply my blush or contour my face. The bronzing and blush papers have pigments in them that transfer to your skin once you dab it onto your cheeks or anywhere on your face. It applies exactly the same way you usually do with an oil-blotting paper and provides colour that is buildable. It claims to eliminate the shine or oil on your face at the same time but then again, you don't usually have much shine on your cheeks.

Hmm... Do I recommend them? Only if you're a very busy woman and need makeup on-the-go. They're not a necessity or an essential must-have item.

If you're hesitant to buy them because they're a new company, don't worry, they've made quite a good impression for themselves already, gracing People Magazine and lots more.

The 2-in-1 Oil Blotting Bronzing Papier retails at 100 sheets for 33USD and Blush Papier at 50 sheets for 28USD. Mai Couture does not ship internationally.
