San San Matte Finish Liquid Foundation
|The foundation has a spatula. I think this is really helpful if the bottle does not come with a pump.|
|When blended. My shade formula is actually 3/4 of no. 3 and 1/3 of no. 2. I should get the right shade or else... Hello, Floating face!!|
|I love MAC NC35. This is the perfect shade for me. It blends so well with my skin tone.|
|Hello bare face! I am really comfortable with my bare face. I can go out my house with it. I just hate my dark bags. Can you see? Arghhh!!|
|On my skin is the San San foundation. Can you see how it cover my spider veins and pores? Nice noh? You have to blend well to prevent crazy streaks on your skin. I have yet to try applying it with my stippling brush.|
|With Fanny Serrano Powder Foundation in Chino.|
My face looks so even and smooth (EHEM...thanks to foundation. To whoever invented foundation, cheers! ).
What I like about this foundation?
Affordable. I got it on sale for 100 pesos!!
It did not cause me any zit or rashes. I use it more often than my Maybelline Pure Minerals Liquid Foundation (this is my to-go-foundation before if I want a bit more coverage.. but the coverage is really light for my liking). I was actually afraid to try this since because my skin usually breaks out with local foundations specifically Ever Bilena.
The coverage is so good. I can say that I will give it a 5/5 ranking.
It applies so smoothly and evens out my skin so well. I like the spatula that comes with it. I do not have to dig inside the bottle using my finger or pour the product. Applying this foundation is mess free thanks to the spatula. haha
It has this sweet mocha scent. Call it weird, I do not care but I am definitely loving it. :D
What I do not like about this foundation?
The shade selection is really poor. I do not know what is wrong with Filipino makeup companies why can't they get the right shade for Filipina (Except for Fanny Serrano.. Kudos to your foundations that suits Filipina skin very well. I think). Do I have to reiterate that WE ARE YOUR MARKET. I have a normal skin shade like most Filipina. I am not morena nor fair. I have a medium yellow skin tone and I just can't find my shade. That is just freaking crazy. I do not know who they test on to arrive at these shades. All I know is.. it is an absolute FAIL! I should be giving this foundation an HG status material were it not for the limited shades. Also, if the weather is too humid, it makes my skin a bit oily too but since I have dry skin this is not a very big deal for me.
Over all, this foundation is really good. Among the local brands that sells liquid foundation, I can say this is on top of the line. I just want to say that if this foundation worked for me it does not mean it will for you.
As the Latin phrase goes..
Caveat emptor, in other words, let the buyer beware.
Godbless everyone. :D
