Ever Bilena Advance 3D Compact Dark Baked Fusion
I love coming across local cosmetics that agree with my skin and meet a particular need—at such a low price tag! I read about the Ever Bilena Advance 2D Compact Dark Baked Fusion being used as a bronzer, and I thought I’d try it out for contouring. Ever Bilena doesn’t say much about how to use this product, but I find that it’s multipurpose. It can be used as face powder (if it matches your skin tone. This is available in a lighter shade), bronzer, and in my case, for contouring. Let’s see how it performed.
Information on packaging:
EB Advance 3D Compact offers long-wearing, velvety formula which is easy to apply and blend, providing rich, natural-looking color. This formula won’t crease, fade, or smudge.
Ingredients list on the box
This is housed in a simple white compact, which when opened reveals a mirror and a hinged plastic cover that flips to the side. This came with a sponge but I didn’t include it in the photo and barely use it. The powder consists of three colors, light to medium, of which you may choose to use just two colors, but I like to swirl my brush over the whole pan, which creates a bronzey brown hue that’s about two shades darker than my skin tone.
The Advance 3D Compact in Dark Baked Fusion has zero shimmers and has a matte finish, which is what I prefer for powders that I use for contouring my face. I’m not sure how many other shades it comes in, but only I saw one other shade at the store. It was lighter and I think the shade was called Fair or Medium.
Now the powder is just pigmented enough and if used as a foundation, it provides light to medium coverage. It’s also good for light contouring. I would say it’s great for beginners to contouring, because it’s not intensely pigmented, and it’s easy to blend. I wouldn’t recommend using the sponge that comes with the compact, but instead, a powder brush or kabuki brush to give you more control over application and blending.
This has a light feel and I’m happy that it doesn’t oxidize on me or make my cheeks itchy or breakout. The lasting power is not as long as I’d like though. It tends to fade on me about mid day, but it doesn’t run or transfer).
Ugh, sorry for the crappy swatch, my skin looks creepy here and the hairs on my arm disgusting, but it’s pretty much color-accurate. :)
It’s priced PhP 150 for 11 g of product and is available at drugstores and department stores.
