Review: Maquillage Lasting Powdery UV Compact Foundation OC10
"An Ultra fine powder that gives you 8 hours of perfection"
ok, I am going to tell you this isnt true.
I went to the base makeup this afternoon and as I wanted better coverage, the SA suggested using Maquillage Lasting Powdery UV Compact foundation in OC10 .. removed my makeup, applied softener, and applied a makeup base before using a clean sponge to apply the compact foundation onto my skin.. It look really whitish.. but the SA said because of the white light.. but when I go to toilet to check, its not so white, although a bit on the whiter side..
Ok, after around 6hours+ when I reached home to see myself in the mirror, I was so shocked to see my foundation becoming so cakey, and patchy... Oh gosh, what the advertisement claims to be an ultra fine powder that gives us 8 hours of perfection is NOT TRUE!!! my M.A.C studio fix wont give me this kind of cakey and patchy look even after 10 hours of wearing..
Maybe because I got oily skin, or maybe because the foundation is not suitable for me, for those who is interested to get this compact foundation, do try on your face for at least 6-8 hours to see the after effect before making your final purchase.
Maybe its liquid foundation would be a better choice..
Personally, after 6 hours+ of wearing, I dont like this foundation .. OC10 is not my perfect shade ( abit white).. plus the lasting power and oil control is pretty bad!! This compact foundation itself cost $65 and the case cost $23 ...it is Not worth the price, even when a free chic and beautiful case is given free.
