This is long wear. And unlike a lot of long wear foundation, this is no dry!

Stay all day, and not dry.

Medium to full coverage.

Deauville is too light while Vienna is dark for me, though deauville is closer. I am Bobbi brown skin foundation 2.5

Perfect liquid foundation this one. must try

Ok, after MAC studio plus and G Armani powder, I thought I don't need to test drive yet another powder foundation ( have been kept doing that for the past 22 years!).

But I did. And finally. The color match here. 48! Neither MAC and GA have my colour, but close enough.

If The color selection MAC or GA provided don't fit you. Try this.

This gives more …

It's sheer, not what I need. I need sheer to medium coverage if I wear foundation.

Similar to MAC face and body kind of sheer, nothing there. Or Lancôme cushion. Just sheer

Why no one mentions this oxidize quickly. Really strange cleansing oil. Turn to oxidized oily smell soon after opening, like within a month.

It cleanses good, just behind fancl or ipsa, better than Shu uemura AO, or etude house moisture cleansing.

Cheap.

But the oxidation is killing this.

I am sitting on the fence for this one, with fancl, Innesfree , shu uemura sitting next to this in my bathroom.

This is cheap. Same as innesfree. The cleansing power is meh, just like shu. So I should forget this since innesfree and fancl have better cleansing power ( I wear water resist sunscreen everyday ). But innesfree will oxidize quickly ( with that oxidize oil smell) and fancl …

Cleansers - shu uemura - Cleansing Beauty Oil Premium A/O

Meh cleansing power ( I will stick to fancl for better cleansing power). Leaves an oily film , which is ok since I use cleansing gel after cleansing oil in any event.

Um, if must use shu, I will stick to the original, have more cleansing power than this.

The not too effective cleansing power is the killing point.

It does heavy duty work to conceal dark circle without looking cakey nor dried. Great product except it's a bit pricey.

I will look for something cheaper. Or something pink in color to conceal the darkness. Thinking about trying Pixi.

Primer/ Corrector - Giorgio Armani - UV Master Primer SPF 40/PA+++

It's octinoxate, mexoryl SX, titanium dioxide UV base. This is SPF40, not the SPF 50 maestro prima. Both are new.

I got the colour beige, which is far too white for Bobbi brown 2.5, MAC NC25.

Will not repurchase cuz it leaves a ghost whitecast even it is beige in color. Have minor ability to cover pores. but it's Armani prima day-long skin perfector is more useful …
