    Hi! I am Krisha. I have been a fan of products enhancing the true beauty of every Filipina.

    Watching my mom pick out her make-up must-haves when I was young tickled my interest on using these beauty products to create a same but better you.

    With all these stuff, I am still that person that believes on inner beauty. When you feel good, you look good.

    Essence: Clear and Matt Make-up (Oil-Free)
    Saturday, October 5, 2013 | 5:27 AM | | 0 Comments


    After I ran out of my favorite face make-up/foundation, Clinique's oil-free make-up, I knew it was time to find a new one. As much as I would like to repurchase my all-time favorite, I could not spend another Php1,850 for a bottle.


    With this dilemma in hand, I watched and read a couple of oil-free foundations available in the local market. Here, I found Essence's Clear and Matte make-up oil-free which promises the same benefits given by that of Clinique's. But unlike Clinique, this baby only costs Php249.00! What a great bargain for an oil-free foundation.


    As much as I would like it to work like my good old foundation, Essence's foundation was a bit runny. It's a bit more watery than I expected. The coverage ranges from light to medium. I usually double up the application as the foundation does not cover up my dark circles and spots fully.


    Here I am having two (2) layers of foundation. I'm very happy that it balanced out my skin discolorations. The dark circles around my eyes and spots were covered up but not completely. I recommend applying a concealer if you really want a full coverage make-up.


    After 4 hours and one  touch-up, I'm glad to see that the make-up held up. Since I naturally have oily skin, I did see some cake-ing in the sides of my nose and forehead. Nonetheless, with proper blotting and powder retouching, this is no problemo.


    Even though it did not perform as much as high-end foundation such as my favorite Clinique make-up, I still give it a thumbs up. It's a great substitute under an affordable price.

    I give it a rating of 8.5 out of 10. As far as I know Essence products were sold to SM Megamall and SM Makati Department stores as of now.
