Pink Sugar Our Lil' Secret Foundation Review

Help me here, I am still confused as I write this review because I want to hail this base makeup as one of the most inexpensive yet effective foundation I've tried to date.  What's stopping me?  Well, there are a few minor issues that I want to tackle (for you to know what to expect) but with the before and after photo I'll show you after the jump, you'll understand why this is such a good product worth investing!  (Thankful that the brand packaged this simply and priced this affordably!)

Pink Sugar Our Lil' Secret All Day Coverage Foundation
(Php399.00 each)

Pink Sugar Our Lil' Secret Foundation Says ---
Provides buildable medium to full coverage; sets with a modern matte finish; doesn’t look cakey, unnatural, or overdone; lightweight, comfortable formula is perfect for Philippine weather; formulated with green tea extracts, hyaluronic acid, macadamia oil, and aloe vera; available in 5 shades

Shades: Beige, Light Warm, Medium, Light Medium and Medium Deep

AMW says --- 

  • Packaging. 
  • Full coverage foundation.
  • Works great as concealer aside from foundation.
  • Lasts the whole day!
  • Can be used without setting as it has a matte finish.
  • Can cover blemishes, undereye dark circles etc...
  • Skin looks fresh, glowing and very natural (if you picked the right shade).
  • Water-based, so lesser chance of clogging your pores.

  • The consistency felt a bit weird, too watery for my taste (since it's housed in a tube, I would like it a bit creamier in texture).  
  • The product separates into oil and pigment so you have to shake VERY VERY WELL and vigorously.  
  • May cling on dry patches if you have dry skin.
  • Shade selection is super difficult, it took me a while to find the perfect shade! 

Quick-drying, full coverage, lightweight liquid foundation that is inexpensive!


  • Shake the product very well before use.
  • A little goes a long way.
  • Work quickly when you apply this product.
  • Better to use a damp sponge if you have normal/dry skin.
  • For fuller coverage, use with dry sponge, foundation brush or clean fingers.

Will I repurchase?

To whom do I recommend this to?
Anyone can try this, I actually have combination normal/dry skin but it works pretty well on me as long as I moisturize my skin properly.

Where to purchase and how much?
Priced at Php399.00 each available online.

The product flows quickly as this is a watery foundation.

Can you guess my shade?
I told you the shade matching is very tricky so I highly recommend to swatch the product on face!

I originally thought I'm a Light Medium but Light Medium appears too light and I look like I have a "Floating Face".  The best match for me is Beige.

As for application, I prefer to use a damp sponge!

Before and After
I was breaking out especially on forehead, so this is a perfect time to show how effective the coverage of Pink Sugar Our Lil' Secret Foundation is!  

Just applied a thin layer of product all over face.  Result is amazing!
