MAC Lightful C SPF 50 Quick Finish Cushion Compact | Review

MAC Lightful C SPF 50 Quick Finish Cushion Compact3

My friend once said that the best compact powder she has ever had was the Lightful Powder Foundation. Even if one compact costs a lot, I remember her telling me she’d buy it again. Fast forward 5 years later and I’ve become a beauty addict, blogging in my free time. Now cushion foundations have become major trend and MAC has joined in the fray in the form of the Lightful C Cushion Foundation.

I bought it last year when they had a promo in stores. For every cushion compact and refill bought, the total was less than Php 3,000. I thought it was quite a deal. Continue reading

NARS Aquatic Glow Cushion Foundation | Review

NARS Aqua Glow Cushion Foundation

Because while I only have a small number of cushions, I haven’t bought anything that I didn’t like. So, can NARS live up to my expectations? We’ll see. Continue reading

The Face Shop Miracle Finish Oil Control Water Cushion6

Hey everyone! Today I’m going to post the review for one of the cushion foundations from The Face Shop. It took a long time for me to try another base product from them because I got a bad break out from their BB creams before. I was supposed to post this review early this year but then suddenly, they repackaged their cushions and now we’ve got the Miracle Finish line. And yes, I’ve got the Oil Control type.  Continue reading
