Hi! So quite recently, I ordered at Sephora Philippines for the very first time. I've actually ordered quite a few times at their US website before, but due to some problems encountered with my card being based here in the country, I wasn't able to order anymore at the Sephore US Site, and it was pretty heartbreaking lol. Anyway, I'm still glad that there's still the Sephora PH!! Even though the selection is quite limited as compared to the US site, there are still quite several brands to choose from. I was eyeing this Born this Way foundation from Too Faced for quite a while but it is a bit expensive and I don't really wear foundation on a daily basis. However, when I've learned that there was going to be a sale for members, I immediately signed up and availed my 15% off .
I actually get really anxious whenever I'm expecting a delivery of an item. I think I just have a bad luck when it comes to it. There are quite a few times wherein the delivery of an item would always take a second re-delivery. I'm not even sure why, but I remember not going out the whole day when I read that the item is out for delivery, but it still failed. I clearly remember sleeping for about an hour in the afternoon, and maybe that was the time wherein the delivery guy tried to deliver an item :( . So during the second day that it would be out for delivery, I made sure to stay awake and wake up early so I won't miss anything. Good thing is, I was finally able to receive my package!!
Overall, delivery of the item took around six (6) days. I ordered it on a saturday and it arrived friday next week. I know that I got the item during a sale period, thus increasing the chance of a delay, but I'm pretty impressed with how fast it was delivered to me.Not bad, Sephora!
The shade that I got is Vanilla. The tricky thing about buying something online, if you've never tried it out before, is that you end up guessing and just hoping that what you ordered would turn out to be alright. It can be quite stressful to buy a foundation with a shade that is wrong for your skin tone. Honestly, when I first tried this foundation, I felt pretty nervous and unsure since I realized that it's actually much more yellow-toned in person, even if it's supposed to be a pink-neutral one based on its description. However, when I applied it to my face, I'm glad that it turned out to be okay, although still not as flattering than a foundation with a pink undertone. I love how lightweight this feels, like I'm just wearing a tinted moisturizer. I also admire that it's very buildable.
But I don't think I would repurchase this because I've realized that this is just really better for those who have yellow undertones. Oh well, at least I've satisfied my curiosity about this foundation.
