For those who like powder foundation (like I do), here are my choices from the low, mid and the higher end of the price spectrum. I use these 3 brands interchangeably almost every day :D
Revlon Beyond Natural 2 Way Foundation (RM69)
An everyday 2 way foundation that works so well for me, I don’t even look at any other brands in the pharmacy anymore. Get it when it goes on sale and best of all, it comes in refill pans so you save even more. Read the original review here.
I Nuovi FaceFix UV Powder Foundation (RM98 powder RM30 case)
Yet another everyday powder I love for its (almost) flawless skin effect that it gives me. I’m on my 2nd pan already and I love travelling with this one, because it gives me a slightly better finish than Revlon but is less fragile than travelling with the Splurge option of Shu Uemura!

Shu Uemura Face Architect Glow Enhancing Powder Foundation (RM125 powder RM50 case)
Definitely a splurge, but one that is ultimately worth it (for me). I use this one on days when I want a powder foundation finish that will last on me, and that gives me crazy flawless skin on which to build the rest of my makeup. Also one I use when I have to impress ;) Original review is here.
So, have you tried any of the above and if you have, what’s your verdict? :)
Save and Splurge is where I show you 2 similar items by 2 different brands that I have tried. They may not work quite the same way, but it’ll offer you options for your wallet for a similar effect/product. Do note however, that it is based on products I have tried, so whilst there are many save and splurge options out there, these are my views. You can find more under the category of Challenges.
Availability: Revlon at most major pharmacies, I Nuovi at Sasa, selected Parkson stores and the I Nuovi boutique, and Shu Uemura at most major department stores and the Shu Uemura boutiques.
