Askmewhats Reviews: Paul & Joe Moisturizing Compact Foundation

I am back!!!
After a week of Makeup School Report, I want to thank all my readers for wishing me well and for being happy of my work! I am so happy to share my passion for make-up with you. Thank you for being so sweet and for complimenting my work! No matter how tired I am, made me smile! :) I still have a couple of report from the academy, but let me do a product review first in between! :)

Everyone knows I am an avid Paul & Joe user. I've been raving so much about their products and I've come to realize, I haven't been reviewing the rest of their products. One of the neglected product to review is the P&J Moisturizing Compact Foundation.

I bought no. 30
This is the size of the compact foundation

P&J Moisturizing Compact Foundation says ---

Skin looks flawless with just one coat
Compact cream foundation makes pores vanish and creates a smooth, fine complexion

Askmewhats says ---

  • super cute packaging, look at the design!
  • refillable
  • gives out a great coverage but natural looking
  • very convenient to apply cream foundation anytime and anywhere
  • though this is named "moisturizing compact", this does not work well for super dry skin!
  • expensive
  • not advisable for "older" individuals as it enhances the fine lines
  • the size of the compact is bigger compared to other compacts

I originally bought this because I do complain about the dryness of my skin, thinking that cream foundation is the answer to my problems. I found that I needed to apply moisturizer still. At times, this can also enhance the dryness of my skin so I think this works very well to NORMAL skin. I find that this will oil up on oily skin individual and will further dry up a dry-skinned individual.

But, given the right application of moisturizer, primer then this foundation, the effect of this foundation is wonderful and natural looking if applied correctly.

  • moisturize the face of the person you apply makeup to before using this cream foundation, it can easily dry up the skin and enhance flakiness
  • great for younger skin
  • can apply using sponge or brush
  • do not use too much in one application, apply a thin layer and apply more if needed
  • for dry skin: can use this product only
  • for oily skin: pat on a powder to "set" the foundation
Will I repurchase?

No, I'll go for P&J Protective Dual Powder foundation instead.

Where can you purchase and how much?

At Rustan's Makati P&J Counter for Php2,350 (approx $48.00)

  8. Connie, no problem :)

    Yumeko, the one with round shape? it's just a powder not powder foundation, their powder foundation case is shaped this way since they started :)
