REVIEW: Ever Bilena Advance 3D Compact in Dark Baked Fusion


Yey for another product review! I have been meaning to do at least 4 product reviews per week but sometimes, my schedule won't allow me. Still, I am happy that there's still time for me to share with you my thoughts and opinions on the products that I use. 

I will be talking about Ever Bilena Advance 3D Compact in Dark Baked Fusion. The reason why I bought this is because I need a multipurpose item that is cheap enough to fit my 500 peso makeup challenge which you can view here. Luckily, I saw this on sale. :)


A little product description which I saw from the box it came with. Ingredients and manufacturing date are also given.

It came with a sponge which you can find useful if you will use this as a compact powder. I have only tried it once, for the challenge, and it worked but I am not a fan of it. 
Sorry for the messy looking sponge.

It has a clear plastic divider that separates the product and the sponge. This reminds me so much of the one from Lioele and Beauty Credits (both are Korean brands).

The product. 

Here's a little swatch for everyone to see. They appeared a little orange-y to me but it gives a nice color once blended.

I am a contour fan. I love how it accentuates my cheekbones and how it makes my face look a lot thinner. 
Combined all three shades to achieve this. 

Pros:

- Ingredients and manufaturing date are given making us more aware of whet we are getting ourselves into. 
- I love the divider that separates the sponge and the product. I just find it hygienic. 
- Came with a sponge that did not tear when I used it. Only used it once though.
- Multipurpose. It's like you have a powder, a blush and contour powder in one. I also like using the darkest color for my eyes. 
- Pigmented. A little really goes a long way.
- Lasting power is up to 4 hours which I think is okay for a product this cheap. Plus, you can always use a good primer and/or a makeup setting spray, right?
- It's not chalky. 
- Really affordable.
- You can find Ever Bilena stalls in almost everywhere here in the Philippines.

Cons: 
- The feel of the packaging is somewhat cheap to me. Maybe it's because of it's plastic material.
- Bulky.
- I don't like the smell which reminds me of my grandma's powder or perfume. It is tolerable though.
- If you want to get just one shade, it will be a bit hard especially if you are using a big brush.
- It looks orange-y to reddish to me which makes it look unnatural. Controlling the application helps.

Where to purchase? 
Check out department stores with Ever Bilena counters. 


Price:
Php 150 but I got this for 90 pesos only since it's on sale at that time.
