One of my biggest skin problems is having an oily face, I’m still on a look-out in finding the best foundation powder for my skin type both for the rainy or HOT season. I know having an oily face has it’s advantages when you grow old (less wrinkles), but seriously it’s hard to maintain a shine free face through out the day, without having to re-apply again in the middle of the day. I’ve tried quite a few brands already from reasonably priced to high end (Maybelline’s foundation powder shine free with SP15, Avon’s True Luminous, Maybelline’s Angel Fit, Nichido, Maybelline’s Mineral foundation and Shu Uemura).
Shu Uemura was good while it lasted every bit of powder, this has got to be one of my favorite high end foundation powder because it gives that sheer finish and (in my case) I don’t need to use a concealer. It gives me a photo ready face. Although, it can feel a little heavy but I don’t mind. I also like the smell of it, some sort of powdery make-up smell. lolz! I think it costs around P2000+

Since, I can’t buy Shu Uemura for now, I have to settle with something a little less. On to Maybelline’s Shine Free foundation poweder with SPF15, this was just plain blah for me, every time I put this on my face, it looks so white and they say 8hours shine free, well, I was disappointed. I bought the natural shade and it still looks white to me, must be because of the SPF. I'm definitely not going to buy this again. This is based on my experience okay? it may work for others, but didn't work for me so there.
For my True Luminous Avon foundation, this doesn't last me even before lunch. But must be because I'm commuting, but even if I'm indoors it doesn't stay that long.
So that is my dilemma, I really need a good foundation powder and If I've found it, I'll definitely be sticking to it for a Very long time.For now, I'm lemming on the ELLANA mineral intensive foundation powder, I've heard a good review about it, I just hope it would work for me too.
I'm open for suggestions too okay? Don't hesitate to give your opinions, etc. I'd even appreciate it. So, for girls who have the same skin problem as I do, what do you use to keep your face shine free? (of course, except using blotting films of course, hehe).
Till next time!Meow..Meow..
