Can be applied with a brush, sponge, or a powder puff.

Php 1,600 or $26 online (MAC site)

WHAT I LIKE:
*
hygenic coz it has a separate sponge compartment
*
love the packaging!
* doesn't cake (on me)
*
NC25 really matches my skintone
* has yellow undertones
perfect for Asians!
*
compact holds a lot of product (some brands have only 12 grams)

WHAT I DON'T LIKE:
* i find it expensive!
* there's no MAC store here in Cebu! Tsk! **praying**

ADDICTION FACTOR:
Will i repurchase? Hmm, maybe yes if I have lots of moolah! Lol!
But Maybelline's
Clear smooth powder foundation works just the same on me, but they have limited shades..

I read in Martha's blog that Prestige Wet/Dry Powder is a good dupe. It only costs Php 500! Click here to read her product review.



SWATCHES:

MAC Studiofix Powder Plus Foundation in NC25
MAC Sheer Coverage Foundation in NW20


Did you notice that NW20's undertone is kinda pink, but it matched my skintone (at back of my hand)
I have a neutral undertone so products with yellow or pink undertones.
NC25 also matches my skintone (face) when blended.. Haven't tried the NW20 on my face yet.

This is my HG powder foundation. Works very well with my oily skin plus the staying power is good. :)

Apart from the studio fix foundation, the other two compacts look familiar *winks*

You have an award waiting on my blog, Khymm :)

Hi Khym! :) Thanks! As for MAC makeup, I usually order them online (lipsticknet.com or cosmeticamerica) and have my cousin ship them here :)
