This is one of my favorite foundations ever! I'm into matte foundation because I'm not really a big fan of dewy looking face. San San matte foundation is one of the bests I've tried. This is not a new product of San San. My Mom actually had one of this when I was still in high school? I'm not sure but she had this foundation even before I started learning how to use makeup.
I got the shade 03. Well it's actually darker than my natural skin tone but I chose this one because it has a yellow undertone. I just use a powder lighter than my skin tone to set it so that it would match my natural skin color and I'm telling you, the result is awesome. It's like I'm wearing a foundation that matches my skin color, very natural.
I also loooove the packaging. It comes in a small bottle that looks like a nail polish bottle when closed. One of the many great things about this product is the applicator. It's really like a nail polish but instead of a nail polish brush, a small spatula is attached onto the cap (look at the picture above). I love the packaging especially the small spatula because you can control how much product you want to get and I think it's very hygienic as well. You can clean the spatula after using it. Another awesome thing about the San San matte foundation is that they're really affordable. I only got this for P130 and they're not even on sale! Hahaha! =D
The only problem I have with this foundation is that they don't have a wide variety of shades to choose from. I think they only have 5 or 6. They have the green one (which my Mother had before) for correcting the redness of the face, a shade that is almost close to white, an ivory-like shade which is very light but has yellow undertone, this one (no.3), and their darkest one which has pinkish/reddish undertone. I'm not sure if that's all they have. If you want to check it out for yourself, just go to any HBC outlets. :)
Keep on reading to see why I love them so much.
Okay, so this is me and my bare face. Look at all those little blemishes and the circles around my eyes!
After applying the San San matte foundation, VOILA! See the huge difference?
My blemishes were not that visible anymore and my dark circles were totally concealed. My face looks smooth and flawless!
Now, this is me after applying powder, blush-on, lipstick and all that jazz.
I look awesome! Hahaha! My face just looked so flawless and it's all thanks to San San matte foundation.
The foundation stays on pretty well for long hours, too. 6-7 hours tops.
This is me after 2 hours.
After 4 hours...
After 9 hours.
I love this foundation! I also use them on my clients. This is definitely in my top list. I just hope that San San (HBC) will create more shades so that a lot of women can use this. I totally recommend this product. It's perfect for combination to oily skin type.
I hope you liked this one.
Stay awesome my dear dudettes! :)
