Another Nichido item exceeded my expectation. It is the Nichido Foundation Stick. I'll be reviewing the color Beige because it suits my skintone perfectly well.
Let me show you the swatches first.

I put the foundation directly from the stick. I put it on my forehead, nose, cheek and chin. Blend it well using my fingers. You can use a brush but I think my fingers does the job perfectly.

|With foundation and face powder|
*Light to Medium coverage, can hide blemishes and pimple marks* Dewy finish but not sticky
* The shade suits my skintone perfectly
* Price Php150.00 for 9ml of product
* locally available (watsons and SM department store)
What I don't Like:
- Smell, it smells like Chingchung-Su
- Packaging is flimsy. It kinda loose when I twistedit.
- it doesn't stay long about 2-3 hours with blotting powder
If you are looking for light to medium coverage foundation at an affordable price and staying power is not a big deal then you should give this foundation stick a try. Although this will work better on person with normal to dry skin I will still use it at home or if I'll go out to get some groceries. Staying power can be extended by blotting with oil control film and applying powder. It started to oil up on me after 2 hours but I didn't mind because I like the dewy effect.
I don't love it but don't hate it either. It is an ok product for me if you are on a budget but still want to have an even toned skin. For its price and beautiful finish you're money wouldn't go to waste.
