To start off, I am really not a fan of liquid foundation since my skin is both dry and oily. Plus I always get a hard a time blending liquid foundation smoothly and evenly on my face. But few weeks back, I’ve been reading some raves about San San HD High Definition Foundation. And I must say, curiousity got in me so I headed to the nearest HBC store and bought my own San San HD Foundation to try on – with hopes that this liquid foundation can finally be friends with my very complicated facial skin. To my surprise, HBC got a B1T1 sale that week so I got two bottles of liquid foundation for the price of one! Great! I really love sales and discounts!
San San HD has three shades: natural, beige and olive. I chose to get two different shades so I can make a comparison and give better review of the product – natural and beige. Since I am acidic, natural shade blends with my skintone better. But sometimes, I also use beige when natural shades are not available.
Here’s a swatch of the two shades:
Tried on my skin, San San HD has a thick consistency which gives me an impression that it can give full coverage even with just a small amount. It has a heavy feel on my skin at first but you can blend it to get it thin and light. It also smells really nice with its very vanilla scent!
What I love most with this foundation is that it has Vitamins A, C & E which helps in making our skin well-nourished and glowing. It also has SPF 30 that protect the skin from harmful sun rays. Plus, a bottle of 30mL only costs Php205.00 – very pocket friendly indeed!
Here’s me with San San HD in Natural shade:
Overall, I find San San HD a good product.
- It gives full coverage.
- It has SPF and vitamins.
- It is blendable. Best if you use a sponge.
- Staying power is also notable.
- Although its vanilla scent appears to be really sweet for my nose, some may find it too strong.
- Dries up quickly on skin so you also need to be quick in blending it to achieve an even coverage.
