DISCLAIMER: Unbiased review for your reference. I have smooth skin but I’m not spared from pores on my cheeks, redness around my nose and appearance of veins. Also, I have combination skin; I get oily on my t-zone area. For the lipstick I love wearing semi to matte formulation and with that, I have high tolerance with matte lipstick. Also, I always exfoliate my lips.Better check your skin types and preferences DO NOT put the blame if certain product doesn’t work the same.
I want to get this foundation again after having my 1st tube way back in college. Since then I knew that this has only 2 shades and I had no choice but to get shade No.2 since it is much darker than the other shade (No.01) I always mix it with a darker foundation. If I remembered I’m using the VOV foundation during college, it is quite expensive but the coverage is superb!
Net Content: 30ml
Shade: No.01 and No.02
Ingredients & Directions
So right now I mixed this with my ELF foundation since it is my real shade and has much yellow undertone. I don’t see any problem mixing it with other foundation since that’s the usual routine instead of wasting your money then why not find ways to be savier. You can also get a darker shade of powder to top it off and get the shade that you wanted.
So here are the swatches of Shade No.02 – as you can see it is really lighter on my skin as in 2 shades lighter since I’m morena.
Texture Formula and Coverage: This foundation is quite liquidy so make sure to be extra careful (look at the photo) the nozzle tends to get messy after I opened the cap.
It can emphasized dry patches/areas on your face and leaves white cast on flash photography
Application wise it glides on smoothly.Non sticky and the coverage is really buildable.It made my skin looks flawless (even without a primer/moisturizer) I prefer to use a brush instead of a finger to even out the product evenly then use the sponge to make sure that the product will not move. It feels really lightweight and I don’t feel any irritation or tingling sensation.It doesn’t oxidize on me (I was hoping though ahaha!) I’m happy that It doesn’t settle into fine lines (under my eyes gggrrr!)
Too white on my skin tone
Longevity: It has a great staying power. It lasted 4-5 hours with just one blot. And my face looks good, not cakey except that I already see visible veins around my cheeks nag fade na siya.
Overall, I like the coverage but I hate that it only have 2 shades. Mixing it with a darker shade of foundation or powder is a must.
