Hey, Ladies I want to meet YOU! Although I can’t meet ALL of you just yet here’s an opportunity for 10 of my blessed blog readers! I’ve only ever dreamed of having a meetup with you and I even prayed that it might be something exactly like this and it is kindly made possible by Shiseido. I almost called this a workshop but more truthfully this Saturday, March 23, 2012 from 3pm-5pm I’ll be demonstrating looks to 10 selected readers using “fantabulous” Shiseido products and will also be raffling off a Shiseido prize to 1 attendee! This photo isn’t from where exactly we’re going to have the session but you get the idea, it’s still Shiseido so you get the vibe. The workshop will be held at Shiseido in Alabang Town Center.

“What is your most favorite DIY (do it yourself) beauty routine and why?” (Example answer: getting my nails done with nail art because I enjoy getting creative)

It’s actually strange that I’m posting this review first because this is part of a batch of sponsored items that arrived for me from StrawberryNET. Normally I’d present the group arrival first before individually reviewing the items, but this foundation was just so beautiful in finish and so perfect for me I just had to put it up to show you already. StrawberryNET contacted me then sent me on a sponsored $50.00 “shopping spree” on their site (I took forever in choosing) as part and parcel of a thank you for featuring them in the past and also requested continued support in blogging bout them once I received the items I chose, more on that when I blog bout the group. This Shiseido Sun Protection foundation is my most prized “purchase” from the loot that StrawberryNET paid for.
ON THE BOX: “Resists perspiration, water, and oil to maintain a soft matte look on skin, even during outdoor activities. Glides on smoothly and evenly; feels non-sticky and feather-light.” I’m telling you now, that sweet stuff written on the box turned out to be true, for me at least.
Thin, runny bases with excellent medium to full coverage are a booming revolution in the makeup world. You can politely ask this one to stand beside the likes of Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua and Estee Lauder’s New Invisible Fluid foundation (which Lisa Eldridge demonstrated in this video), those foundations both come in shaker bottles as well with proper nozzles instead of pumps for the runny formula. It’s practically flawless and to my delight, and with a little help from viewing another blog Delicate Hummingbird the foundation shade I chose online SP40 matched me perfectly (author has the same skin color as I do but sadly has stopped blogging as of Jan, dunno why *depressed*) normally with MAC I’m an NC30-35.
