Review: Nature Republic Vanilla Sky Foundation and FOTD

3:39 PM

Last April, my friend Putri went to South Korea for a seminar purposes. She kindly brought back for me some make up and skincare, and this was one of `em. Nature Republic is a Korean make up brand that emphasize on natural ingredients. Not just a mouthful, this foundation really does contain polynesia lagoon water and SPF 25 PA++. Hmm, sounds good to me ^.^






Okay, let`s get down to the product review, shall we?
Packaging


Comes in a blue plastic tube with flower print, this foundation looks a little bit "standard". Not really cute, but not bad either. I really like the idea using plastic, because it will be travel friendly. Tube packaging is also hygienic.

 Swatch, Texture and Smell
It has creamy texture, a little bit thick so it is hard to blend. For me, i find it better to use make up sponge rather than paddle-like foundation brush. The brush only resulting in streaky finish. It has such a strong vanilla smell that wont go away for 15 minutes. The smell is fine for me, because my skin is not sensitive towards fragrance.


Spread - spread-.. Looks really white, isn't it?

Blend more with my fingers


Coverage, Oil control, Pigmentation and Longevity

Semi matte finish and the coverage is sheer to medium. For a really bad acne scar, concealer is a must. At first, the foundation didn`t blend well and causing a white cast, but after a while it settled well. On me, this foundie doesn`t oxidise, stay bright till i remove it. Pigmentation is good, a little goes along the way and brightens up the entire face. It stays put for 5 - 6 hours, and i do need to blot sometimes. So, i would say that the oil control is so - so. 

FOTD

The best part about my job, is that i get to travel to a lot of mall for many reasons. Market research, location finding, or even checking the SOYA stores. Hehehehe so i can go sightseeing while working. 


This time i went to Supermall PTC Surabaya. I was in hurry making this FOTD, i didn`t even have time to apply the eyeliner and as you can see, the eyelash glue were very apparent and flaking >.<

Gah! Thank goodness the eyelashes didn`t fall off until the end of the day. I just use copper and brown eyeshadow all over my lids and apply falsies. That was it.

And for the face, i was using Nature republic vanilla sky foundation. I like the finishing look of this foundie. My skin looks brighter, smoother, but not heavy :)






Rating: 4/5
