Hello hello hello my beautiful readers! This is one of my "first" product of my life. (Did I say it correctly? Hahahaha) This is my first ever powder I own in my entire life that won't give me pimples here and there. My skin really loves this so much I can't just let go of this. I started using this last year because of internship. You have to look neat and presentable to your patients, you know. I've tried a lot of products back in highschool and all of them just gave me pimples and some rashes here and there. My skin was really sensitive back then compared today.
Today's featured shade is not just what I newly bought but also my previous powder shade. To add, this is a powder foundation. Today, I got it in the shade OC20. I've been using the shade OC10 but sometimes, it is just too light when my skin goes a little darker than usual...from the beach or when I'm outside walking under the sun for almost half the day.
As you can see, the back portion is all written in Japanese and I can't read a single word! Except for the "SPF 18 PA +" And the powder only cost me P895.00.
This beautiful and elegant case is sold separately for P450.00 only. It is now also available in a pinkish toned case.

I don't know why OC10 apperas darker than OC20, not just in photos. Maybe because my OC10 is already old and has been mixed with dirt and other significant causes?
My bare face without anything on. See the redness between my nose and lips? And that shiny forehead. And large pores. And everything elese.
As you can see, OC10 is a bit in the yellow side compared to OC20. OC10 is obviously lighter than OC20. I consider OC10 really blends well at the center of my face and cheeks than OC20--- in person.
But OC20 blends perfectly on my forehead and the lateral parts of my face.
See? OC10 looks natural on me even in photos. Reduced redness, dark undereye circles and some dark spots I have. I have dark lips but, no, I don't smoke at all.
My whole face with OC10 MajoMajo Skin Remaker Pore Cover with just one base of the powder foundation. A patting motion using the sponge applicator would help you achieve a flawless and natural finish.

Overexposed pictures are overexposed. and these are actually snapshots from a video because taking "selfies" with a 50mm with no remote is harder than I thought it would be. (You don't need to know that, I know, but I am still typing it here anyway.)
Photos of me wearing OC10 is my pre-board exam face and these photos with OC20 is my post-board exam face. My eyebags have doubled since then. I am not the type of person who burns the midnight candle away. My sleeping pattern in still the same from my normal night and study nights. Maybe my eyebags is the result of my over thinking of things and stressing my mind to have a passing mark in the board exam. But if eyebags are what I gain from passing the board exam, ahhhh, no regrets!
To pass the board exam > anything else. Anyhooooo.

See? It isn't ghostly as it is on the photos above. And say hello to my matakaw brother.
- Controls oil upto 5 hours
- Light-medium coverage (this maybe a con for some of you)
- Light weight
- The packaging is vavavoom!
- SPF 18 PA+
- None that I can think of.
- Maybe some of you wants full coverage powder foundation then this isn't for you.
Personal: This has been the powder I have been using since 2012. I choose the OC20 on me than the OC10. OC10 makes me a white lady upon first minutes of application-- even OC20, but OC20 has a "lesser" ghostly effect. The product sets on the skin well and the color will blend eventually. But if I have my days where I just want a quick fix and can't wait for it to "set".
I also use the sponge that comes with it since it gives a more flawless coverage than a brush in my opinion. Patting rather than wiping the product can conceal some of the blemishes and redness. This is also good for people who has sensitive skin since I am too and I didn't have any allergic reactions to this product...thank goodness! I can also say this also good for combination to dry skin. For oily individuals, better pack up a blotting paper.
