Nichido Foundation Stick

During my recent trip to the mall I have included some Nichido items on my purchases. Nichido has been one of the brands I trust when it comes to affordable-local make-up. I have used some Nichido products before and liked them. It is not the best product when it comes to staying power but with how cheap the product is I wouldn't mind applying for the whole day.

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.

Beige - with flash

Beige - without flash
It looks lighter than my skin tone but when perfectly blended it wouldn't leave a trace that I have anything on my face.

Bare face

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 on
 It instantly remove light blemishes on my face and gives an even skintone. It doesn't feel heavy after application, I didn't feel the need to apply a face powder because it gives a nice dewy finish but to make it last longer I applied a little amount of face powder. It doesn't have a mattifying effect, I would advise applying powder if you have really oily skin.

With foundation and face powder
What I like:

*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.
