Last April, my friend Putri went to South Korea for a seminar purposes. She kindly brought back for me some make up and skincare, and this was one of `em. Nature Republic is a Korean make up brand that emphasize on natural ingredients. Not just a mouthful, this foundation really does contain polynesia lagoon water and SPF 25 PA++. Hmm, sounds good to me ^.^
Okay, let`s get down to the product review, shall we?
Comes in a blue plastic tube with flower print, this foundation looks a little bit "standard". Not really cute, but not bad either. I really like the idea using plastic, because it will be travel friendly. Tube packaging is also hygienic.
Swatch, Texture and Smell
It has creamy texture, a little bit thick so it is hard to blend. For me, i find it better to use make up sponge rather than paddle-like foundation brush. The brush only resulting in streaky finish. It has such a strong vanilla smell that wont go away for 15 minutes. The smell is fine for me, because my skin is not sensitive towards fragrance.

Coverage, Oil control, Pigmentation and Longevity
Semi matte finish and the coverage is sheer to medium. For a really bad acne scar, concealer is a must. At first, the foundation didn`t blend well and causing a white cast, but after a while it settled well. On me, this foundie doesn`t oxidise, stay bright till i remove it. Pigmentation is good, a little goes along the way and brightens up the entire face. It stays put for 5 - 6 hours, and i do need to blot sometimes. So, i would say that the oil control is so - so.
The best part about my job, is that i get to travel to a lot of mall for many reasons. Market research, location finding, or even checking the SOYA stores. Hehehehe so i can go sightseeing while working.
This time i went to Supermall PTC Surabaya. I was in hurry making this FOTD, i didn`t even have time to apply the eyeliner and as you can see, the eyelash glue were very apparent and flaking >.<
Gah! Thank goodness the eyelashes didn`t fall off until the end of the day. I just use copper and brown eyeshadow all over my lids and apply falsies. That was it.
And for the face, i was using Nature republic vanilla sky foundation. I like the finishing look of this foundie. My skin looks brighter, smoother, but not heavy :)
