ELF Two-Way Cake Foundation

Bought this after a free makeover at SM Aura
(trivia: its just the day before the explosion at Serendra Tower 2)

(a Belle de Jour girl once, will forever be a BDJ girl <3)

and I've been using this baby for quite a while now, as you could see, I even posted an IG before using it for the first time :P
using my Chic Cosmetic Angled Top Kabuki Brush *win a set here

Here is my say on this cake...
The Good
*has a matte finish
*have a decent size mirror
*product separated from sponge
*sponge can "breath"
*can be applied wet as a foundation
*can be applied dry as a setting powder
*has SPF 15
*blends well using sponge and brush

The Bad
*the packaging "box" is sleek in black
*doesn't last long enough (apply every 3hrs for a/c room and every hour when not)
*cakes up when overly done
*light to medium coverage only still needs concealer to hide super dark spots and acne scars
*smells weird maybe because of the packaging?
*saving the worst for last - Cheap Packaging! - the lock is not sturdy and the material is made of cheap plastic Nichido and Ever Bilena are way more sturdy

Won't be buying this anytime soon, but I'll recommend this for students and beginners who wants to experiment on makeup because its cheaper, easier to apply than liquid foundation and perfect with sponge or brush application.
