Hi guys! How you guys been doing? Having a great week? Today I am going to review a foundation that i have been using for quite sometime now. It is from Essence. I'm not sure again where is this brand come from. I pretty much have heard about it a long time but never get my hands on their product. So that day, while looking a nice affordable foundation around Watson, I saw this. Of course, the first time i saw it, I'm attracted by the packaging.
Pigmentation: 8 / 10
It does have a true colors. What you see is what you get. As i blended, the color seems pretty nice. Not much of a change to its color. I might say it is a medium coverage foundation that is builable to a full coverage foundation. Leaving skin to a semi matte result.
Blendable texture. The texture is a semi cream to liquid, not to runny not to creamy. Pretty light and easy to blend.
It have this kinda cleanser type of scent if you know what i mean. Im not that good at describing scent. Haha! But it has a scent to it.
It claims to be a 16 hour long lasting makeup. After testing it for a week now. I might say, it is not 16 hour long lasting makeup. It pretty much stay around 6-8hours actively running here and there with our hot humid weather and cold air condition room. After then, it tends to fade and oil start appearing just like the other foundation i have used.
I really love the packaging. Especially the pump that the bottle comes with. The design of the bottle is pretty nice too.
You can easily get it at any participate Watson near you. It comes in nice 4 different shades that is quite different from others. Im surprise that my shade is the lightest shade that they have, because usually i have to get the middle tone of a foundation shade because i am not that fair. See picture above for the swatches and shade available.
I give it 10! Super cheap and affordable! Guess what? RM19.90! How cool is that? It is among the best drugstore foundation i ever use.
Overall : 8.2/10
I think this would be a great foundation for beginners. If you want to start your own makeup collection or just getting started with makeup. This foundation is an essential.Its afforable and simple.
What product from Essence have you tried? What do you guys think?
Hugs and kisses
