It's available in just two shades, typical Korean/Japanese LOL, dear Korea, Rain and Hyori love to darken their skin, how bout a darker shade please?
It's hygienic, too as it's dispensed out of an efficient pump.
Some product information at the back of the bottle?
What the product is pushing what it has.
The ingredients are below.
shade differences of 1 and 2 under normal lighting and under fluorescent lighting.
and again swatches are below, but under the lighting conditions below, unblended the swatches look like regular bb creams or foundations.
Some of you may know that when trying out foundations, it is preferred to swatch them around your cheek bones. Below is me trying out shade 01.
here's shade 2
and what it looks like under fluorescent lighting
and with the flash on, yep, floating white head, i blame the sunscreen in the product for this reflectiveness.
and when applied completely on my face, i am using shade 01 in the below pictures. so this reflectiveness depends on the ambient lighting and your camera's flash setting. so if you do plan to use this product before going to an event, pray that the photog's camera's are set for a diffused lighting so that all that light from the flash won't hit your face all at once.
but under regular office lighting it's just fine! Below though I am using shade 02.
So you may ask, how much lighter is shade 01 compared to shade 02. Well shade 02 is darker, visibly darker than shade 01. Shade 01 is bright, but suits me better because without the shadows thrown by a room that isn't lit well, i.e. my shower room, it makes my face to have the same shade as the skin on my chest. And again under day light and regular lighting without a flash shade 01 works well on me as it's almost as light as the skin on my chest, so i look pretty much even.
- hygienic packaging
- a scent that isn't overpowering
- easy enough to blend unlike many foundations that are too quick to dry ahem Revlon Colorstay
- actually is better applied with fingers unlike some foundations
- it has some spf, spf 30 and pa ++ which is just fine for indoors protection
- has fairly decent coverage, i don't need to apply concealer on my dark circles under my eyes and it makes the scar on my cheek less noticeable.
- doesn't cake up throughout the day
- doesn't oxidize on my skin or change the shade of my blushes
- i also apply this on my eye lids and it doesn't clump up on my crease
- doesn't break me out either
- easy to remove at the end of the day
- long lasting like a foundation
- doesn't wipe or melt off easily like a decent foundation
- decent pore coverage
- PhP998 for 50 grams of products which is quite competitive to other name brands' foundations
- it doesn't feel too thick at all
- i mentioned that this is better used with your fingers or a moist sponge, because somehow this is harder to blend with a synthetic brush. so it's a good thing, less expense of actually having a brush AND cleaning the brush. not somehow, it's just much thicker than your average foundation but is slightly more watery than your average cc cream and bb cream, WHICH do work better when used with fingers.
- when used with a brush it puddles on my pores and makes my 'peach fuzz' more obvious, in other words, litaw yung balahibo ko when i use this with a brush.
- reflective with the usual flash setting is on
- just two shades that's a tad too light for the common Indo-Malay skin, I hoping this expands.
I look a little too made up when using this product with a brush, so I would suggest to use this product with clean fingers to apply and blend this product on your faces. I do recommend this product for our working girls in our offices day or night. For call center agents, this last long enough to last you through the night, you can reapply this for a bit to give you a refreshed sun protection. The same for the ladies and gents working throughout the day. This will protect you when you cross the street and while indoors where sunlight can still reach you. But you may need to reapply if you want and or have to stay out in the sun for an extended period.
Do I like it? Sure, it certainly beats applying so many layers of products which take so much time.
