Review: FS Cosmetics Two Way Cake

Looking for a powder that could…

  • set your makeup perfectly?
  • give a nice and flawless finish?
  • could look nice in pictures?
  • less than Php500?

Too good to be true? Not really… 😉 Presenting the FS Cosmetics Two Way Cake in Organza. 😀

Product Description (taken from the FS Cosmetics website):

High quality cake foundation that can be applied wet or dry.
It contains Vitamin E that nourishes and softens skin.
It also has UV-protection and oil-control.

This is more than just a powder because it even has SPF35+ and PA+++. It is a makeup and skincare in one. Rest assured, your skin can be protected from the sun. Also, based on the product description, this has Vitamin E and oil control. For the oil control part, my face still gets oily after a few hours but it is not really a problem since I blot my face to get rid of the oil.

When you open the compact, it has the typical powder pan and mirror. I am not sure if the others like the scent of this powder. As for me, I find it too strong. It is like an odd, vanilla-like scent that is really strong. Nevertheless, the scent is gone once applied.

I asked the sales assistant in SM Makati which shade is suited for me. I particularly told her that I want a powder that won’t look too white in pictures especially if the camera used has a flash but is still close to my skin color. She suggested that I get the Organza shade.

Review: Enhance Cosmetics Mineral Loose Powder

For today, I will be giving a review on my current favorite setting powder. This is the Enhance Cosmetics Mineral Loose Powder for Light to Fair Skin.

Product Description (taken from the Enhance Cosmetics Facebook page):

Soft, Fine & Smooth loose Powder Foundation Tiny, Tender & Refined Powder, Soft & Smooth Texture, Ideal Repairing Effect, Improving Skin Colors. The powder is soft, fine & smooth. When you brush them on your face, your face color will be lightened. This product can be used separately or used after foundation. Its professional makeup effect let you be far from the grease and viscidity, and not block your pores. So you can remove your makeup more conveniently. P380.00

It says in the product description that you could use this alone or after your foundation. I prefer to use this after my foundation to set my makeup.

When you open the product packaging, there is a powder puff included. In case you don’t have a powder brush, you can use this instead. Also, as you will notice, there is a sticker attached to the holes where the powder would come out.

When you remove the sticker, place back the cover of the packaging. Shake the container a bit. The powder will come out of the holes and it will be ready for your use. Just be careful this time when you open the lid. The powder could be a bit messy (as expected since this is a loose powder). 😀
