Pigmentation & Color:


This foundation comes in 5 shades. I can't remember their actual names, but i know there's only one cool toned shade, one neutral, and 3 warm shades. All these shades are quite LIGHT, so dark skinned babes will have some problem finding the exact match for your skin!!

Here's now the shade W02 Natural Buff (the darkest shade) looks on my NC20-25 skin:


I'm wearing this foundation on the right. As you can see, it effectively masked the uneven tones of my face, and imparted a lovely glow! :)

Texture & Scent:
This liquid foundation spreads rather well! I'm surprised at the rather good coverage despite being so light! It has a rather unpleasant plasticky scent, but it's barely detectable!

Packaging:


This LF comes in a glass bottle with a dispensing pump, which is great!

Time Test:
This foundation lasted a whole day on my face, which is really good!

Price & Availability:
This product is priced at RM35.90, which i think is alright for a drugstore item! :) It's available at most Watsons / Guardian outlets and your local supermarket!

My $0.02:
I've tried the Wonderfinish foundation a few years ago and i loved it! I for one dislike thick foundations, so imagine my glee when i found this new (not so new now! :D) foundation in Watsons. I love how flawless it made my skin look!! It did impart a soft focus glow too!! My only gripe (a major one too) is that it sits into your fine lines thus emphasizing them further! It gets worse as time goes by!! :S Another thing is, it does ball up if you rub it in too hard!! Believe me, a stippling brush like the MAC 187 is all you need! :D

In a Nutshell:

Flawless skin in a bottle, provided you don't have any fine lines on your face! ;)

Likes: Good coverage, makes skin glowy!
Gripes: Sits into fine lines, balls up sometimes
Repurchase: No

Rating:
3.5 Stars ! Not bad product! :)

  8. Hi chian li! No i've never tried their powder foundation before but i've heard many raves for it too! I personally prefer using loose powders as opposed to pressed ones! :)

    Have you tried it before? How do you find it? :)

    I'm thinking of buying this foundation, but i'm just super unsure of what shade to get without actually having the product in front of me. T__T

    But your post has helped a lot. (:
