Why I Dig it:

I have been looking for a foundie that would match my constantly oily skin + the effect of 24-hour sauna in the Philippines (LOL)  like, forever!  Then I saw this local online store which sells cosmetics so I started browsing thru the page and this CG foundie caught my attention. OIL FREE, CONTROLS SHINE--- bingo!!! Pa-try nga....

  • It really is matte and you can see it after applying to your face.
  • Blends well with my skin color.
  • It doesn't give me a cakey finish.
  • It's cheap.
  • It's safe for pregnant women to use.

Some of its mishaps:

  • It has a strong smell (I especially hate it now due to my heightened sense of smell a.k.a. pregnancy).
  • The foundie is really difficult to release from the bottle; very thick consistency so I need to grab a Q-tip everytime I want to use it.
  • I need to re-apply my setting powder or powder foundie maybe after 30 mins. or an hour because I can see my face getting shiny. I have to admit though that with this, it might be due to my pregnancy which increases the body temperature of a woman. So I have to do a follow-up review after 'lil jellybean comes out.
