Assalamualaikum and hello love!
It has been a while since I reviewed a two way cake, as a matter of fact, I have not been using any Two Way Cake these past years. I guess it's time to change up my foundation game a little bit and try new products. In this blog post I'll be reviewing PIXY Two Way Cake Perfect Fit and I'm pretty sure those who wants good coverage two way cake with affordable price tag will sure loves this!
A two way cake is a product for your makeup base where you can use it two ways, either dry or wet. Dry application is great for natural effect and touch-ups while wet application is great for foundation effect where you can get more coverage. PIXY Two Way Cake Perfect Fit is formulated using Japan Technology, which is enriched, with Squalane Oil to maintain hydration and other ingredients such as natural whitening powder and Vitamin C for a brighter and fairer looking skin. PIXY Two Way Cake also has SPF 15 to protect the skin from harmful UV rays.
There are 5 shades available in this range ; White Cream, Yellow Beige, Natural White, Natural Beige and Tropical Beige. I personally think these shades options is quite good as it can cater to most skin tones in Malaysia, whether you have yellow or pink undertones, fair or tan skin.
Looking at these 5 shades, the perfect shade for me is Natural Beige. The shade blends well into my skin and brightens up my complexion, making my skin looks livelier. White Cream is also suitable for highlighting purpose while Tropical Beige can be used for shading. If you want to use dry application, simply use the sponge provided and apply it all over the face.
I want a fuller coverage so I always use the wet application technique. Simply soak the sponge into a bowl of water, making sure that it is fully soaked in water. Squeeze out excess water and we are done! Start applying the two way cake from inner to outwards directions.

What do you think? I think it covers really well, and the two way cake really feels weightless. FYI, I do not use concealer in this makeup look. You know what, I love the outcome! And now I'm going to show you how to do shading and highlight using the other 2 shades by using the darkest shade (Tropical Beige) to contour and lightest shade (White Cream) to highlight. We will start with shading, then highlighting.
