Long time no write, hehehe. Are you good fellas? Was hoping not too many fans getting down because of the A7X concert last night 🙂
Today i’ll give you my review on my current face base, All-In-One Face Base The Body Shop No. 4. This is powder and foundation in a compact place, provide nice face base that won’t waste too much time, with buildable coverage, and nice finishing touch.
This is how it looks :

How it looks :
The upper place is for storing your sponge, the sponge is really nice and giving flawless look on my skin, and the lower one is where the powder is. Does it looks too light? Pardon for my android camera, actually it’s pretty warm color, about NC25 or so.
This is actually the photo taken back right after i bought it, and it was like 1 and half month ago. Now… it hit the pan already, lol 😀 I’m asking the SA for the color that match my skin, the No. 3 shade is too light, really light on me, but the No.4 match me nicely. I’ve read a lot of reviews that said the color shade is really light for them, i don’t know as i found that they has 10 shade, but i find it’s not too light for Indonesian skin, guess that for NC 35 above that having hard time to find the right shade for them.
This is review for the product :
+ powder and foundation in one, it won’t waste my precious morning time 🙂 After i bought it, i’m getting too lazy to put my BB cream on my face, and just end up going out with moisturizer and this face base.
+ it give me nice buildable, matte finish look. Well, my combination skin always needs a lot of blotting , this face base helps, a bit actually, i just need to blot like once every 3-4 hour. Fyi, i’m a college student in Depok, Indonesia, so i’m doing my routines everyday, outdoor, in very humid and hot place, so that’s how it affect my face. Guess that would be different in other situation.
+ the staying power is ok
+ the color match my skin
– gives stain to my clothes. Just be careful when you’re undressing or accidentally rubbing your face on fabric or something, it’ll leave you stain, just like face powder stain 😦
– it kinda pricey, get this one for Rp 209.000,- from The Body Shop counter on Margo City, guess that would be like $23 or so.
– just build it a bit at a time, because it’ll give you cakey look if you don’t.
– it has a bit fragrance on it, not so annoying and it’s ok on me since it’ll fade after 3 sec or so.
Well, actually i bought this face base after i’m looking for dupe of MAC Studio Fix Powder +Foundation, but i can’t find the official counter of it near me, and it’s really hard for me looking for the right color from those color swatch from the internet. So i need to find a substitute, that i can reach easily and look for the color that match my skin nicely.
Oh, and don’t put any BB cream underneath it, it’ll looks cakey badly, lol, i know, silly me 😀 But i’m just trying la.
Guess that’s my tips if you looking for a new face powder or face base, if you think it’s hard to see if the color is right from the internet, it’s waaaay better if you just come to the counter and ask the SA.
