I was supposed to post this a few months ago, I think last October pa unfortunately I forgot the password of my laptop and had to reformat :( <//3 Anyway, enjoy! I'll be uploading more posts soon! Promise! :P
Wow, time flies so fast. I remember accepting a friend request from Krave about a year ago, when it was still starting up its online shop. I said to myself, "Ohh. Very Nice. Another pinay mineral make-up brand." From that point on, I stalked its page. Album per album, blog per blog. Although it took me several months before I got myself a few products to try. Better late than never! :P
Here are the products that I purchased:
|Organic Liquid Foundation in Ricotta and Complexion Perfection in Hazelnut|
I love how they named the shades after food.

So cute. So tiny. A tube will probably last you a month.
Too light for my skin tone huh?
It's barely noticeable anymore. :)
Packaging: Packaging is okay. I just think it would be better if the tube had a long, thin nozzle so that I'd have better control over the amount. Plus!! I accidentally dropped mine (clumsy) while I was applying and gush, went the foundation. It spilled over the floor. I nearly cried. There goes 3 ml of my 20 ml product. SAYANG!!!! Grr.
Color: Please do not be turned off by the shade! Haha I know it looks sort of pasty white but I tell you when you're wearing it, it hardly looks noticeable. Au naturale! I recommend you pair it with Krave's mineral foundation. :)
Texture: Light. It is as if you're applying milk to your face :) Although you might have a hard time blending, IF you're too slow in spreading the foundie. But when you blend it well it really looks nice.
Coverage: Sheer - medium; It can conceal minor redness, blemishes here and there. Then again, it's my opinion. It may work for you, but not for me.
Fragrance: Imo, I don't smell anything fishy. Haha. Although I was hoping it did smell a bit sweet because of its skin loving ingredients hehe :P
Oil Control: Considering my combi skin and the environment, it did manage to control oil pretty well. I'm not saying that it's "Oh wow no oil, oh my gosh I'm oil free" because seriously there's no such thing as completely oil free here. You know how humid it is here in Manila :(
Finish: Matte. I love how this alone can brighten my skin without looking dewy.
Complexion Perfection in Hazelnut - Php 255 (3g)

Before and after photos upon using both products:

Krave Organic Liquid Foundation
Krave Complexion Perfection Mineral Foundation
In2it Lip and Cheek Tint
Don't you just love the finish? Natural, poreless, bright, and breathable :)
Plus there's no sticky feeling!
Love love my krave products <3
Better than bb cream. Definitely more beneficial than bb cream :)
My skin feels happy, health and radiant.
And that's my daily make up! I rarely shape and shade my brows, nor do I put on any trace of eye make up. Of course there are times that I do want to look like a head turner or an asian doll, but I feel better and more of myself with less on.
Repurchase? Yes! I will definitely buy more products :) Next on my list is the concealer! And maybe the Panacea oil too! I am definitely recommending Krave to you guys! :)
Check out their Facebook page here! You will find a lot of beautiful girls who all agree with me - Krave is love<3
