Mamonde All Stay Foundation - Rosy All Day or Just Drying ?

With the change of season, it's the time for new foundation formula releases, and today we point to the direction of Mamonde's All Stay Foundation. This new formula will get your complexion as flawless as the petals on a freshly bloomed Rose. Let's find out my musings on this unique take of layering.

Mamonde All Stay Foundation is a foundation that stays on the skin all day long! Makeup looks beautiful, like the first time. 

You'll LIKE the watery texture that blends very well on the skin and also the light Rose scent that it has.

You'll HATE how it finishes on the skin, which is rather drying and tight.

Now let me tell you, the Mamonde cushion foundation which was launched earlier didn't tingle my fancy so I wasn't very keen with this new All Stay Foundation too, but after swatching the texture of this new product on the back of my hand, I was excited to give it a try.

Mamonde All Stay Foundation is incredibly watery in terms of texture and formula, it actually feels  wet on the skin when applied, which blends in effortlessly. This foundation is seriously a dream to apply, and because of its medium to high coverage, all I need is just one layer to cover up everything which includes my dark circles and pigmentation, except for the hormonal bumpy acne which needs an extra layer to conceal it thoroughly. It builds up and layers really well as you apply but as it dries down, it's another story...

The cons here are going to be different for everyone depending on your skin type and needs. Greasy skinned guys and girls will probably find it decent to use as it has a dry and mattifying finish. Though if you have dry and normal complexions, it can feel rather drying and thick on the skin. I somehow sit in the middle of feeling drying on my cheeks and just nice on my T-zone, so I can't really have a clear cut of whether I am liking or hating this.

Overall, it's good stuff for medium to high coverage foundation, also those that like a natural-looking finish will be a fan of this. To me it's probably something I'll crack out for photoshoots and videos because I ain't a fan of such high coverage foundation for a day to day makeup, and the drying feeling didn't feel too good on my cheeks either.

There's a saying, "Life's better in Red Lipstick" and I do have to agree with this. A bold red lipstick is certainly a no brainer and universally-flattering because it works for all skin tones except if you are avatar blue, then blue and red might be not the most flattering combination. So the simplest just get yourself a kick-ass red lipstick and you'll be ready to nail the runway !
What we like : Fenty Beauty Stunna Lip Paint Longwear Fluid Lip Color (Uncensored)

Orange lipstick looks great on darker skin as it accentuates and contrast's  perfectly giving you a bold look. Burnt orange Is my favorite.

Purple lips will certainly make you stand out among the crowd. You can go for deep or bright purple, it will work like a dream for when your feeling daring. In fact, I personally think you need to have a nice tan minimum to pull off  purple lips!
Recommendation : MAC Matte Lipstick (Heroine)

If you have darker skin, don't shy away from wearing pink, because getting the right pink shade will complement your complexion even more. Go for a rich plum pink shade, it will stand out brilliantly without the vibe that you are trying too hard.
What we like  : Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick (Plum Velour)

Deep Berry Red
On light skin tones, this shade would look too vampy like you are prepping for Halloween or literally poisoned. But for darker skin, this shade is deep enough to accentuate all your features. Also a cool undertone Deep Berry Red will make your smile more vibrant too.
What we like  : NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream (Monte Carlo - Deep Cranberry)
