makeup organizer + fashion21 2 way foundation review

I finally got a new makeup organizer. My two makeup kit looks full and messy! i have a hard time looking for eye pencils. i have to rummage through the pile of blushes, e/s and glosses before i find the one i am looking for. it is eating a lot of my time when doing fotd's. and i just hate looking for something. :S here is my very humble collection. i really don't have much. my collection accumulated and decreased through the years. yes, i throw things when i feel like they are expired. Don't expect much on my collection. i just have all the things i need and use. I am still a student (scholar of mom and dad.. hehe) so i do not buy those that i may not be able to use. I promise to hoard big time when i graduate from law school and buy my first mac collection on my first pay check as a lawyer.. hehe

my makeup kits ( is this the right plural form?) a lancome big makeup pouch and a plastic container (looks like a lunch box.. LOL)

first layer: my foundations and powders
i love foundations. way back in college, i have tried a lot from bloom, mac, revlon, maybelline, mary kay, fasio, ellana minerals, cover girl to in2it.. everything that i can get my hands on (but not those pricey ones.. hehe) i am a foundation freak. :S I almost forgot how many and the names and brands that i have tried.

2nd layer: my blushes.. i love blushes but i don't wear it everyday. :S i have thrown a lot of blushes and sold some too.. there was a time i got in love with bloom scc (sheer colour creme) but i eventually sold them too.. i love the lavender scent! :D

3rd layer: lippies :D

4th: eye stuffs.. the coastal scents palette is not here. :D

5th layer: random stuffs (those that could not fit into their respective drawers)

the only things that are left in the pouch are these: ( i removed the max factor in the drawer.. it could not close hehe)

Hi liz,, a reader asked me to write a review on the fashion 21 2 way foundation with milk moisturizers. First of all, i have dry and sensitive skin. Further, i just want to remind readers that stuffs that i like or those that work for me may eventually don't have the same effect to others. This is basically my honest opinion about the stuffs i used. :D

i always see this foundation but never gave it a try because of my notion the local products will break me out. i was so wrong.. this one is good in terms of coverage. the texture is creamy and powdery which i like. :D a few buffs here and there and i am good to go. the powder blends and melts with my skin because i moisturize my skin well before using it.i have been using this since i have bought it and in terms of oil control. it is pretty decent in keeping my oilies at bay. however, take note that i have dry skin. The areas that would get oily at mid day would be my forehead and cheeks.. i love the fact that it looked dewy and it does not looked washed out when i perspire. :D It has medium coverage though not actually buildable because when you add more it tends to be cakey and fake. :S But a few spritz of evian and it blends instantly on my skin again. :D The fact that I have dry skin and it does not aggarvate it is a plus factor for me. :D Another plus factor is the scent, it is really mild and it does smell like powdered milk. hehe The downside is the poor color selection. i have mentioned that it looks perfect for my shade and at times it just look dark.. although, this does not i checked no. 2 and i find it really light. :S i don't know the effect when applied on my skin,, it might look okay. For 185 pesos,, i would probably repurchase it for everyday wear. :D

For comparison: the top picture is without the foundation and the lower one is the one with foundation. (excuse the red bump on the cheek and forehead.. :P) i only applied moisturizer underneath the foundation. :D
