This is my #5 product review from the Japanese Designer brand MINISO.

Hey there, how are YA? Awesome right! By the way, fall season is here and I wanted to do something new regarding it. So, hit me up if there is anything specific that you want me to write about.


Moving on today’s beauty review, as you can already see it’s about another MINISO product. Well, what am I suppose to do…you guys honestly LOVE to read about my MINISO reviews. That’s why I keep on reviewing NEW Miniso products to keep up with your expectations.

Product Info

Name – Miniso 1+1 Hydro Makeup Base

Price – INR 190 for 20g/0.7oz (like SUPER affordable)


Packaging – I have been bragging about the packaging that we get in the Miniso products. But it’s not fault, I mean look at pictures that I have included for you guys. Have you ever seen a makeup base packed in a box? Your answer MUST be no because at this price tag it’s impossible. I haven’t seen such secure packaging from high end brand in case of packaging a tube. The size of the tube is decent but there wasn’t a transparent seal that is mostly seen in MINISO’s other products.


Texture – *Disclaimer: I have added a short video clip of the swatch of this makeup base on my hand.* The base looks somewhat like a combination of cream and serum as its consistency falls right in the middle. It also smells like something that’s nostalgic…more like a soft baby cream. To me it reminds me of something similar to vintage scent, I know I am not making sense but it is what it is! 🙂 .


Application – As it is a makeup base, you can apply it before applying your makeup like foundation, concealer, and other beauty stuff. I personally think of it as a PRIMER! This Miniso makeup base is from the series 1+1. It has an innovative hydro formula that  is mild and moisturising at the same time. You can use it to improve your skin discolouration and can make your skin feel like milk by releasing the charm of healthy skin.

Performance – Before we can move to the performance part, I need to get something of my chest. I FREAKING love it! I really do, so far it is one of the best products that I have ever came across. To me it is an AMAZING product to be used as a primer on a daily basis. This makeup base is not harsh but extremely moisturising on the skin and looking at the price, it’s definitely a STEAL DEAL. It stays pretty put throughout the day and feels light on the skin. The best part for me in this primer substitute is the shine at gives your skin, like a natural GLOW.


Shelf Life – You need to finish it up within a year i.e. 12 months.

Rating – It’s a 10 on 10 product for me! [Highly Recommended]


Do I recommend it? – Hell YEAH, I highly recommend trying out this extremely affordable makeup base from the 1+1 series of Miniso.

Thank You So Much For Reading Everyone!!!

P.s. – STAY TUNED ’cause I just did ANOTHER Miniso HAUL, don’t judge me I really like CUTE stuff. 😉
