Oh,uh I've been so lazy to write anything here lately.Nor even did the blogwalking. J.u.s.t feel not so inspired and got couple of things to do.So anywho,I'll try to write a simple short review for those who need a bit info about this product(and trust me,i rarely find a review of this product in blog so hope this one will help you who want to try this product).
Ok,so in the quest of finding a good liquid foundation that has everything conventional brand offered,but in healthier ingredients,I decided to try this Logona liquid foundation in medium beige(no.03). Logona has 3 shades to offer:light beige,medium beige,and sunny beige.
Personally,I like Logona silver and sleek packaging( I love silver!gold is just not me..Not my style,not my taste,just no!Gold color will be my last option when no silver color is available).And among German brands,only Logona and Sante that didn't use alcohol on their ingredients so Logona is deffy my choice. FYI,Logona and Sante are from the same company.Sante is the sister line,targetting for younger consumer than Logona. I didn't choose Sante liquid foundie since I heard that it had sheer coverage.
On to the review:
This product was actualy great,the best moisturizing liquid foundation I've ever tried.It did heal,nourished my skin after application.Even when I didn't remove my make up at night,I'd wake up in plumper and smoother skin in the morning. I did really like this foundation!.This one also had that dewy effect,not glossy,something that I love from a liquid foundation.The coverage was buildable to medium(which means it's sheer on 1st swipe).
However,the really downside is this one:shade! Though what I bought was beige,but the shade fell to pink undertone category and not yellow which isn't match to my skintone(pls,do not refer to the swatch above.It got white balance of my camera so..basically it's pink!).Before buying this,I've asked to Paola about the shade.However I forgot to check her answer,turned out that all of logona shades fall to pink undertone category!If you have pink undertone,I really suggest you this product.But for me the shade is very disappointing.Another downside is the smells.Though this one has no synthetic fragrance,but the fragrance of this product reminds me of old cosmetic powder,those that grannies wore.It smells sooo granma! The over powering sweet scents.Very granma scent...:/ Annndd...this one dries fast also so you need to apply it fast before it dries, or else you will get flaky patches.I used to apply foundation by make dots arround my face then swipe it either with hands or brush.With this one,I needed to make one or 2 dots on each part of my face,then swipe it since it would dry quickly.

Yes,this one has those gemstones in it:
The inspiring properties of the micronized quartz, amethyst and amber gems enhance your positive energy...
And this one has talc in it.Fyi,I'm not against talc in liquid form.So I'm ok with it. After all,this one is BDIH certified.This one is also certified vegan and gluten free product so this product may a good option for you who are vegan and gluten free products seekers.
If you have pink undertone,Logona really worths to try.But if you have anyother undertone than pink,well..stay away since logona collection tends to those who are in pink undertone. If you ask me what I'll rate this product,I'll rate it 4.5 out of 5.Only the shade that falls imo.In fact,it's hard to find clean,green,and natural liquid foundation that works like conventional foundation ones.Simply because it has no silicones family in it. I'm not talking about how silicones make us feel smooth,that the product works to smoothen our skin while it's simply the"illusion"that silicones give.I'm talking about how somehow silicones perfectly cover your pores,and bind cosmetic colorants well so that it always give you good coverage compared to the non silicones one.I personally avoid having silicones in my liquid make up since somehow it did clog my pores and made me break out.There are many types of silicones I know,but the typical dimethicone that most of cosmetic industry use in liquid products feels stick to my skin(and tehnically that is how silicones work,just sitting there on the skin!).However,I haven't tried non liquid products(like powders) as I'm not interested in to.I mean,for the same $ that have to pay,why I should choose the one that possibly break me out while there are other option available out there?..
