Vice Cosmetics just launched their Duo Finish Foundation! I am starting to love this local brand’s foundation as it is cruelty-free, paraben-free, vegan, buildable, blurring power with oil control too!
This product comes in a sleek hot pink case and has a white sponge applicator inside. It’s quite tricky to open though. The price and ingredients can be found at the back.
Ingredients: Talc, Mica Zea Mays (Corn) Starch, Aqua (Water), Silica, Zinc Oxide,Octocrylene, Magnesium Stearate, Silica Dimethyl Silylate, Polyglyceryl-2 Dipolyhydroxystearate, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, BHT, Dimethicone, Isodecyl Neopentanoate, Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin.

It comes in 8 shades – Tisay, Chesa, Kinesa, Putinamez, Shade ni Vice, Moreyna, So Pinay! and Flawlesa.
During the press launch, we had a skin test to check which shade will match our skin. I got Shade ni Vice! Too bad Meme Vice wasn’t present during the event.
It’s a two-way foundation so it can be used dry as a loose or finishing powder for dry to normal skin or wet with sponge if you have oily skin. It’s a local brand, made in China, but it is US Dermatologist tested and designed and formulated in Los Angeles, California.
Enjoyed the fancy meal on a Fornasetti plate. Thanks Trellis Manila!
It’s actually like a compact mineral powder that’s buildable from light to medium coverage. Applying too much of this powder might look cakey so make sure you apply layer by layer to avoid a cakey look.
After 6 hours of wear, I could already notice an oil build-up around my nose but a quick retouch can do the fix. It has light fragrance but not too noticeable. Considering the price and staying power, I recommend this product for everyday use!
