Review: Fashion 21 Foundation

0 comments Links to this post

Beauty doesn't necessarily mean vanity. Applying makeup in order to look fresh and appealing isn't mere attracting of eyes for attention. Personally, I believe it shows grace amidst the stressful environment and how well we manage ourselves despite the busy schedule. Now, there are a lot of products out there to conceal our weariness and one of them is a foundation. 

Foundation gives our face a good canvass. It holds other products we wish to apply. Similar in construction of a building, the foundation should be at its finest performance because it is the base. It holds everything above. Basically, this product should stick nicely on the face for hours and withstand heat and sweat.

There are different types of foundation. There's the powder, two-way cake, cream and liquid. There are also ones for oily and dry skin type and the coverage it provides vary from sheer to full. As full time student and part-time entrepreneur, sleepless nights is as normal as blinking. Cases like this, it’s best to use foundation that covers up the exhaustion and doesn’t make one look like she toppled over a road made of flour. 




Currently, I’m using a cake foundation. This one gives a thick coverage. Sabi nga nila, pang pageant, pak na pak. This type, gives greater coverage than liquid and holds beautifully except under extreme condition. However, it gives more breakouts than the regular foundation. I only suggest this one for special occasion, events or photo shoot.


Can you spot the difference? The left side has foundation on it.  You will notice that my eye circle has been reduced  and the result is an extremely matte finish.

How do you use cake foundation? Dampen sponge and squeeze excess water. Dip the sponge into the cake pan then pat on the skin.

In terms of oiliness, as I observed, becomes evident after three hours and it requires retouching.  However, no one wants to do the retouching every now and then. To extend the staying power of this product, one should use a primer underneath and a mattifying powder over. These products help the foundation to stay in place as long as it could with lesser and controlled oiliness.

Finding the best product that suits our skin comes with a trial and error. There’s a wide variation to choose from. There’s the liquid type of foundation that is commonly used. Conversely, given the weather and humidity, it’s best to pick up a product that protects the skin, sweat proof and natural looking. 

Do I recommend this? Again, do not use this everyday since it causes more breakouts. The product is really thick and may clog your pores especially when you're an oily type. But yes, the product gives a good canvas so one would look really smooth in the pictures. hahaha

Review: Suesh Foundation

0 comments Links to this post
Finals-week is over! (*Screams "One week vacation here I come!") Graduation is more visible and I can smell more makeup post  for the next term. Sweet huh? 

Today's product review is about Suesh Foundation. I posted a haul weeks ago and it is only today that I managed to make a review.




As you can see, they are in pots. The objective here is to customize your own palette. Nobody wants to waste money on a palette wherein 50% of the colors in it does not match her skin or is not meeting her taste. 

To make it more exciting and fun, they also have other products in pot such as lipstick, concealer and eyeshadows. 





For the foundation, it weighs 22.5 grams and is P125.

The product is matte and thick. I love the coverage that is medium to full. I just swiped twice with sponge and I'm good to go. If you want more coverage, then you can add up some more since it is build-able and does not cake. 

I'm wearing Suesh Foundation in HD 08, Suesh Lip Color in LC 343, Suesh Blush in B003, and Suesh eyeshadow in E026.


It definitely gives a good canvass. However, this is not the foundation for extreme outdoor activities. It can get your face oily after 2-3 hours.

Review: TNC Cream Foundation

0 comments Links to this post
Summer is definitely the season where I lock myself in my room and wish there is number 7 on the fan. This scorching heat is killing me. I cannot simply risk going out and be sweaty with ruined foundation on my face. 

The problem is, all of my foundations are all medium to full coverage. Using them during this summer with more than 35 degree Celsius is a bad idea. I love the whole look, but it gives me the feeling of wearing a washable cement. It's a face battle between sweat and makeup on who stays.

With all this vanity problem, I have to look for another product that is skin breathable. 

opted for TNC cream foundation with SPF 15. 

The cream foundation comes in two shades. One is old rose (Pink undertone) and the other is peach (Yellow Undertone). 

TNC is a beauty shop in Olongapo City near YBC super market.



For the swatches, 







I hope you could see the difference. They did a great job blending on the skin. As for me, I'm loving the old rose foundation. It gives that pinkish gloom effect. <3





Here's a photo of me wearing TNC Cream foundation in Old rose.
