Price: Php785

My 2nd favorite foundation of all time! (Next to L’Oreal True Match foundation) A pea-size dollop of this product is enough to cover my face (and another tiny dollop to cover the neck). This only provides sheer-to-medium coverage and unfortunately, not buildable (based on my experience). I think the matte formula makes the product get cakey or gives the face an uneven finish when you start putting on more. This could be the down side, but when they say it’s matte, it’s MATTE. It holds up to 8-9 hours and that’s something from someone who has combination-to-oily type of skin.

When I first used this, I was uneasy because I felt that my face was oily, but when I looked in the mirror, I was so wrong. My face doesn’t look oily, but if you pat your face with the oil control film, you will see the grease.

This is a good product, but if you’re looking for a buildable foundation that offers medium-to-full coverage, check out my reviews on other foundations.
