So I got this Sasa HD Foundation 03 Vanilla Beige in my previous haul and here's the promised review on it.
I bought it after reading kimoko's review and another review.
On the bottle it says: "This light weight formula offers perfect coverage with a natural soft, matte finish. Its hydrating fluid glides on seamlessly to give you a flawless luminous complexion."

Well, I guess it is easy to blend cause it's more on the liquid side, it's not very viscous. Getting me all hyped up for the results wasn't a good thing. I was kinda glowing more in a peachy way. Making my features stand out? Well, that's cause I contoured(photo #2). So it's hard to say. One thing I can definitely say is that it really minimized my pores and black heads were all gone(photo#1). After 6 hours however(maybe a little longer, I really don't remember =P), I looked like the local Char Kuey Teow, i.e. I was so oily (photo #2) I could fry an egg on my face and it wouldn't stick. lol. Here are the photos after 6 hours.
Sasa HD Foundation. To get or not to get?
1.Easy to blend(fool-proof for beginners)
2.Minimizing pores(for those w/ blackhead, whiteheads and anything in between)
3.Good for camera(If you have a huge event)
4.Luminous and glowy skin as promised
5.It's really cheap for a HD Foundation (RM 39.90)
1.No oil control whatsoever(if you have oily/combination skin, this is a huge NO. unless you're gonna keep visiting the ladies' to powder your face)
2.Enhancing facial features?? I doubt it.
3.Not exactly perfect coverage.
The verdict: ❤❤❤❤❤ 3/5
I have combination skin, I dislike visiting the ladies and I don't know how to fry eggs. I love how my pores 'disappeared' but only for special photoshoots I would use this. It is easy to blend but we all gotta learn how to blend properly someday, right? Anyways, you decide. (and leave a comment)
