I got very excited when I saw L’Oreal Infallible 24H Stay Fresh Foundation (Shade 150 Radiant Beige) in Watsons (P700). It’s rare to find a matte yellow olive-toned drugstore foundation locally.

Project Toss or Keep — where I would use one foundation for most of the month and decide if I would toss or keep it.
I kind of cheated when I chose BECCA to kick off this series. I started with something easy for motivation. I already tried letting go of this foundation last year just because of the scent–like old school makeup. I decided to hold on to it again and found a way to make it work by setting it with a heavily scented finishing powder that I like. Based on reviews, most people don’t seem to be bothered by the scent at all, so I guess it’s just me.
This should be my kind of foundation — low coverage, dewy finish — but I was let down by the overall experience. The product didn’t live up to its price tag (PhP 2,900 at Adora). It’s good, but not good enough for the price.
