Price and where did I get it? P600 ($12.82 USD) from SM Department Store at SM Megamall. Yeap alot more expensive here in the Philippines which in the US, this only costs about $10.95 (P512.35)
What do I think of this product?
To be quite honest, I did have high expectations for this since after I bought it, I searched around youtube and other blogs (I know, bad habit of mine where I only search reviews after I bought the product- but hey I did hear of this product before!) and I saw that alot of people has this as one of their holy grail foundation. For me though, I have only used it for 4 or 5 times and half that time, it was pretty hot outside and I keep on blotting my face every so often just because the oiliness is real. But during cold weathers, it did seem fine. I know that this isn't a matte or a sheer type of foundation because it is a luminous type of foundation wherein it gives a natural finish to your skin, yet I did expect it to have more coverage where in all honesty, it didn't give me what I was looking for. It does apply nicely but it transfers quite easily that maybe I would have the weather to blame, but still I didn't like that I couldn't touch my face at all while I was wearing this because it would make a little mess.
I do wish that this product has a pump since it is so watery and being as clumsy as I am, pouring out products just isn't practical because besides the fact that I'd tend to spill (it's indeed a given), there will be times where I haven't poured enough and then I'll pour too much. Plus it is more hygienic having to not open the cap and get all sorts of bacteria freely passing through. I did not have issues with breakouts but again, the small spots that I had before using this product didn't have enough coverage while using this. It is really a super natural type of foundation that I think only people who have clear skin and just finding a good base to even out their skin tone would find this foundation pretty good.
Is it worth the money?
If you are staying at a place where the weather is constantly hot, then nope, not really. I really did wanna like this product because of how it perfectly matches my skin tone which alot of foundations just don't get it right. I will however, recommend this during cold weathers or if you're at a wintery place. Having to spend P600 for it wasn't totally a big deal since most foundations that are well known does cost alot more but still, I expected more from this product like for eg. surviving the weather and more coverage which is probably my only problem.
