Before I begin the review, please note: This review could be helpful for those with normal to oily skin. I have oily skin particularly on the t-zone.
I was curious with cushion foundations, but knowing it has less product and could cost the same or more compared to a full-size bottle foundation has kept me from trying it. However, I could see it so convenient for travel. As I had a few trips lined up last year, I had the urge to get one. So I got my hands on Pony Effect Defense Longwear Cushion Foundation. Gotta have a Korean brand for my first cushion foundation. 🙂
22 May 2018 Update: After this post, I eventually had different thoughts on this foundation. So I’m updating this review, but the gist of it is it’s okay but I won’t repurchase nor recommend anymore.
I’ve been interested with Essence makeup, so I took advantage of their sale and got a few products including the Essence All About Matt! Oil-Free Make-up foundation.
Mattifying, oil-free foundation for a flawless and radiant finish. covers imperfections without clogging the pores. the formulation is long-lasting and moisturzing. dermatologically tested.
I realized I didn’t say why the lack of updates in this post. Returning to blogging was difficult with the sudden workload after my trip, though I’m slowly getting back to the groove.
Anyway, I have a foundation review, which I can’t believe I haven’t blogged about. I used this before and almost forgot about it.
Clinique Even Better Makeup SPF15 in 66 True Beige
July has passed and I wasn’t able to review the rest of the makeup I was using then. But, actually, only the foundation and concealer are left, both of which I still use. They could still be part of my August makeup routine because I ♥ them both! In order of how I put them on, I’ll begin the reviews with foundation then concealer.
Maybelline Fit Me! Matte+Poreless Foundation 130 Buff Beige
This drugstore foundation has very good reviews and has been highly recommended for those with oily combination skin.
I don’t think I have any cons, but only pros on this drugstore foundation.
- Truly matte with medium to heavy coverage
- Eight-hour longevity and sometimes longer before any shininess peers through
- Easy to blend (with fingers)
CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation in Medium Beige
I mentioned many, many times that my T-zone gets super oily and that the oiliness has gotten worse lately. It might be the weather, change of diet since I’m incorporating healthier choices, or skin care products though I use the same. As much as I liked the L’Oreal True Match Super Blendable Makeup foundation, at some point, it started to just settle on my face and I would unknowingly get some on my fingers. I found out when I left a streak of foundation on a work document. I can’t even touch my face out of fear that I might transfer on other important stuff. Good thing I almost emptied the bottle, so I had a valid excuse to buy. I searched for foundations recommended for oily skin and saw CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation in an online list of ‘best foundations for oily skin.’
I’m back home and in the blog! 😀 Juggling several blogs and the vacation was impossible, so I posted only one entry last month. ^^;;; Anyway, on to the post.
Ever since I bought the L’Oreal True Match Super-Blendable Makeup in Sun Beige, I’ve been using it almost daily. I was able to test it through two summers and some rainy days. It never failed on either hot or rainy days. The wear lasts almost eight hours which is great for a work day. But I think the powder that I purchased with it also helps. I barely need to retouch. That’s one thing less from my cosmetic kit. 😉
I told myself I wouldn’t be buying until I review a lot of my unused products or until I have a bunch of empties. But sales like L’Oreal’s are hard to resist and I needed a new foundation… As if I’ll end up with getting only a foundation. 😛

I received this Missha Deep Sea Water Aquarism Foundation along with my Missha Moist Foundation in Warm30.
No. 23 is medium tan as you see below. This may seem it is for brown or tanned ladies, but I am medium-fair and I am able to use this because it becomes lighter/fairer when further applied on the face until it becomes translucent.
For me, this foundation:
- Leaves a translucent and dewy finish
I’m going to challenge myself to write at least ten posts this week excluding this one. *crosses fingers* XD Anyway, on to my Missha Moist Foundation review.
I got my tube of Missha Moist Foundation from my mum who got it from a convention. This was a giveaway included with the Missha Finish Pressed Powder and several others that I will be reviewing someday. LOL
In the picture above, that’s the actual color of the foundation. It looks like it’s for tan skin. But because it is translucent, it has a natural finish that is quite near to my skin tone except it gives a bit of shine. See below:
