Review: SkinFood Gold Caviar Moist Fitting Cake

With my growing fondness of the Skin Food Gold Caviar line, I had to get the matching pressed powder to add in my growing stash of Gold Caviar's. Surprisingly, few hours after last Saturday's wedding, my makeup was not yet beyond saving (although it won't hold true for my hair, so I tied it up in a bun. ;-D)! With the humidity, and all, I was still far from looking washed out, methinks. So with some touch ups, which is in the name of applying the moist fitting cake a la pressed powder, I took advantage of more photo opportunities. ;-D

Sharing my precious, albeit, I'm just halfway collecting the line, there are so much more! ;-D...SkinFood Gold Caviar Toner, Collagen Serum, Collagen Cream, Moist Brightening Powder Balls, and the Moist Fitting Cake No 2. Love them! :-D 
SkinFood Gold Caviar Moist Fitting Cake No 2 with SPF 25 PA++...comes with the usual details I love about the brand...clear hard plastic lid separator for the puff, and the intricate, embossed SkinFood logo on the actual powder. I bought it on eBay Ph with the gift card I won in a giveaway, for Php 1000. 
Product Description: A mineral pressed powder effectively covers fine lines and leaves skin radiant and velvety smooth. Infused with Russian caviar extract and pure gold. This powder effectively improves uneven discoloration of the skin with reinforced UVA/UVB Protection
Just to say, I bought this not purely out of caprice (fret not, haha! :-D), I really do need to replace my SkinFood Sweet Potato Hydra Cushion pact, which I'm lavishly using for some time now.
Swatch. Comparing it with the Sweet Potato Hydra, this is more pigmented, and offers better matte coverage.
Without Flash. With Flash. FOTD: Eyeliner SkinFood Sweet Almond/ Mascara: Lashem Double Trouble/ Eyelid to brow bone: Gold Caviar Brightening Moist Balls (Since I'm not so adept on applying eye makeup, I just go for the natural shimmers.)/ No Blush./ Face: SkinFood Black Egg Pore Foundation No. 1, Platinum Grape Cell BB Cream, Gold Caviar Moist Fitting Cake No.2/ Lips: Nature Republic Petit Cherry Rouge
Loves: Everything! ;-D The eBay Ph makes it reasonably-priced. Anyhow, given those achievable promises of the product, coupled with my realized goodness of the Gold Caviar Skincare line, I'll still probably get it regardless how much...albeit with eyes off the bill! ;-D

Although, I was a bit wary at first, because I already hit buy-it-now, before going for the available reviews online. I stumbled upon two mentions, it's half-half...one best, one worst! So I hoped for the best. It's a big plus that I got shade No. 2 Natural Beige, otherwise with a mismatched or a lighter BB Cream shade, it might leave a white cast. In effect, this can be worn stand alone, without leaving a baby-powdered look, which was my concern for the SkinFood Red Orange Sun Pact. So yes, I'm a huge fan! ;-D

With a wee bit of more dramatic winged eye line, and maybe longer lashes, and maybe red lippies every so often, this will definitely be my go-to look. ;-D What's yours? Please do share! :-D

I'm easy to read (except during Poker). I easily get teary eyed on practically both happy and sad things. I'm overly emotional! UP,Toy Story 3, and Glee made me cry with delight.My hubby is my source of strength. He balances that side of my personality. He made me a more self-reliant person.I love being a mom. But be it known that I tend to be OC, paranoid, and definitely see my self as a stage mom.I can't help but throw him parties every year.I love to read. If there is a lifetime membership to Book Lover's Club, I've probably signed in as early as Grade 1. I'm blessed to have a special relationship with God. He is my confidante. I practically talked to him anywhere and anytime about anything. I'm a Kapampangan and supposedly known for having culinary skills.This still needs to be found perfected, but for sure, I can say I'm a gourmand!I love to eat and it shows!Oh well!Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder and Happiness is only a state of mind. From today onwards, I intend to live in a Happy Mode!Cheers!
