Etude House Stay Up Foundation Review

Tough week! Well, I was already expecting this to happen since holidays are fast approaching. Sleepless nights and a lot of deadlines to beat but I think that's a good problem for the business, isn't it? So for now, allow me to take a break from work and play with some makeup!

What's on my table?

Etude House Stay Up Foundation

Php 778.00 for 25g

Description: This foundation completes smooth and flawless makeup with its smooth up, cover-up, moist up "Stay Up" formula.

It's one of Etude House's latest products. I got sachets of this foundation when I was in Myeongdong. It really looks great on my skin so I was really happy when I received the regular size from Etude House Philippines.

The packaging is nothing special. Everything is kept simple but still girly. The tube, however, makes me a little sad because it's only 25g.

This foundation comes in 5 shades: Sand, Beige, Ivory, Rosy, and Pure. Mine is Beige and I think it is just perfect for my complexion.

The foundation is lightweight and very easy to blend on skin even by using your fingers. It leaves a velvety finish but a little dewy at the same time. A semi-matte finish without drying out the skin! It has anti-aging, whitening and UV covering properties as well. It contains sea flower emelass and raffinose which helps contain moisture, while the coconut seed butter keeps skin glowing and vital.

It stays up for about 6 hours (my skin started to get shiny after 4 hours) so – not particularly long lasting as it claims but doesn't fade quickly either. After 6 hours, you might want to get a powder ready for touch ups. Probably because I have oily skin. Still, it’s something I’d use for a medium-wear time. Aside from that, I love how it leaves a smooth, bright, flawless finish on my skin.

What I like about this product?
Smooth velvety finish
Great pigmentation
Comes in 5 different shades
SPF30 PA ++
Light on skin

What I don't like about this product?
Small for its price, I guess?
Doesn't stay up the entire day as it promised

It's similar to Etude House Skin Fit Foundation but this one has an improved formula and has 5 different shades to choose from. So, if you like that foundation then I am 100% sure that you will like this one even more. Try it!

Mischka Green Tea Mask Review

One of my favorite things to do on my free time is to apply facial masks! Although there are a lot of ready to use facial masks available in the market, I still prefer to use creams that you manually apply on face. Just like this one:

Mischka Green Tea Mask

Around Php200 for a 50g tub

Kiss Me Heroine Make Impact Liquid Eyeliner Review

In my previous post, I reviewed a gelquid liner which is quite amazing since it's considered as a 3 in 1 product. However, the sparkly texture didn't impress me. So in search for a replacement, I recently opened a new product which I think will serve me well in my out of the country trip.
