I have been interested with Essence makeup and took the opportunity to buy some on their sale. I got some base makeup that I showed here. The first I will review is the Essence All About Oil-Free Make-up.
(I forgot to remove that sticker on cap.)
Mattifying, oil-free foundation for a flawless and radiant finish. covers imprefections without clogging the pores. the formulation is long-lasting and moisturzing. dermatologically tested.
July has passed and I wasn’t able to review the rest of the makeup I was using then. But, actually, only the foundation and concealer are left, both of which I still use. They could still be part of my August makeup routine because I ♥ them both! In order of how I put them on, I’ll begin the reviews with foundation then concealer.
Maybelline Fit Me! Matte+Poreless Foundation 130 Buff Beige
This drugstore foundation has very good reviews and has been highly recommended for those with oily combination skin.
A bottle contains 30ml or 1.0 fl.oz. of product
I don’t think I have any cons, but only pros on this drugstore foundation.
Truly matte with medium to heavy coverage
Eight-hour longevity and sometimes longer before any shininess peers through
CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation in Medium Beige
I mentioned many, many times that my T-zone gets super oily and that the oiliness has gotten worse lately. It might be the weather, change of diet since I’m incorporating healthier choices, or skin care products though I use the same. As much as I liked the L’Oreal True Match Super Blendable Makeup foundation, at some point, it started to just settle on my face and I would unknowingly get some on my fingers. I found out when I left a streak of foundation on a work document. I can’t even touch my face out of fear that I might transfer on other important stuff. Good thing I almost emptied the bottle, so I had a valid excuse to buy. I searched for foundations recommended for oily skin and saw CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation in an online list of ‘best foundations for oily skin.’
I’m back home and in the blog! 😀 Juggling several blogs and the vacation was impossible, so I posted only one entry last month. ^^;;; Anyway, on to the post.
Ever since I bought the L’Oreal True Match Super-Blendable Makeup in Sun Beige, I’ve been using it almost daily. I was able to test it through two summers and some rainy days. It never failed on either hot or rainy days. The wear lasts almost eight hours which is great for a work day. But I think the powder that I purchased with it also helps. I barely need to retouch. That’s one thing less from my cosmetic kit. 😉
I told myself I wouldn’t be buying until I review a lot of my unused products or until I have a bunch of empties. But sales like L’Oreal’s are hard to resist and I needed a new foundation… As if I’ll end up with getting only a foundation. 😛
L to R: True Match Super-Blendable Make-up in Sun Beige (PhP899600), Mat Magique All-in-One in Vanilla Glory (PhP499400)
No. 23 is medium tan as you see below. This may seem it is for brown or tanned ladies, but I am medium-fair and I am able to use this because it becomes lighter/fairer when further applied on the face until it becomes translucent.
That much goes a long way, see?
It has yellow undertones, so it should work for those warm and neutral.
I’m going to challenge myself to write at least ten posts this week excluding this one. *crosses fingers* XD Anyway, on to my Missha Moist Foundation review.
I got my tube of Missha Moist Foundation from my mum who got it from a convention. This was a giveaway included with the Missha Finish Pressed Powder and several others that I will be reviewing someday. LOL
In the picture above, that’s the actual color of the foundation. It looks like it’s for tan skin. But because it is translucent, it has a natural finish that is quite near to my skin tone except it gives a bit of shine. See below:
