I am always wandering to find “cheap” and “affordable” cosmetic products (Foundation Stick) that is safe, trustworthy and would not cause harm to my skin. I believe, we all do.
Daiso always makes me happy because I may find a great “finds” there. For me, Daiso is like heaven and usually I would spend a long time there just to browse through their items. When I said long, it’s really long…
In Daiso, I came across this Foundation Stick called “Ever bilena”. This foundation comes in two shades:-
1/ Shade O4 for those with pinkish undertone
2/ Shade U4 for those with yellow undertone.
I bought both as I was curious how it will perform and I was managed to make use of both shades on my face. Shade O4, I use it to brighten up and highlight my features and Shade U4 for the rest of my face. I noticed that shade U4 suits me better as I am a yellow undertone.
I was not able to read and translate the foundation stick ingredients as it was written in Japanese but this product is made in Taiwan. So I was not able to confirm if the content of this product is safe for your skin.
Here is my verdict:-
- This foundation stick is very easy to apply, it glide easily. I believe its because of one ingredients (i.e. wax) that makes the application very easy.
- It smell like “rubber” in my opinion, which I don’t fond of.
- It does blend, and I use wet sponge for the application. I rather not use brush as the product will move before it set. To complete the look, I just use loose powder to set whole face.
- However, this foundation does not provide much coverage. If you are looking for a higher coverage, this foundation stick is not for you. It does not covers your imperfection, your pores and pimples.
- I would not suggest this foundation stick for those with oily skin type. I cant sure that you wont suffer any breakout from this product. I am a Combination Skin type and so far I did not encounter any breakout by using this product.
- Its cheap, affordable and can be a cheaper option for drugstore makeup. All items at Daiso is RM5.90.
- However, this product does not stay long on the face and it turn shiny after couple of hours. So I need to touch up with powder frequently.
- This product can be easily remove with facial wash.
- Suitable for everyday look – not so heavy makeup look.
So far thats all my thought about this product. Let me know down below if you like this type of review and I would make more of this.
Until we meet in my next post.
