I got a problem – no case for my foundation

I recently been preparing my long waited trip to Hong Kong. I decided to do a big spring clean and threw away all the makeup I had over 2 years (even it is not very used) and some of the makeup I never will use again in a swap box (ok.. I actually kept my IPSA eye palette that has been with me since 2004 but I can’t help to love it) (alright.. a sale/swap post is coming up when I bully my little kid into taking photos for me)

I found this Ettusais Zero Foundation refill which I love and will definitely use. When I’m in HK, my face is oily and the only thing that stops the oiliness is Ettusais. I first used its Day Defence SPF powder and moved on to the foundation which is my HG when I’m in HK. I dug out the Day Defence powder again as I was looking for a transculent powder and forgot it was there, sitting in my HG makeup bag all the time calling for me. So since I pick up the powder, I looked for the 2 way cake I bought in Jan. Then I hit the problem.

I definitely remember I have at least 2 foundation case. From my experience, shiseido square foundation case can be swap. I have one from my Maquillage collection and another from Ettusais. I overturn my storeroom and I couldn’t find them both. Arghhhhh

I want to start using it because this UK summer(even I’m still wearing long sleeve) makes my face oily again. I have now switch from Vichy (yess I might retract my I LOVE VICHY statement because my face been suffering from acne for the last 2 weeks) and into Lancome Hydra Zen (I got a 15ml sample which will last me for a long time)

My foundation without a case scenario just make me mad about myself. I manage to downsize my makeup that I used into 1 makeup bag.. but buying a makeup foundation case is certainly not on my list. I just check the ettusais website in HK, they’re selling one for 8 GBP (around 14 USD) not a happy bunny


  1. Aw that sucks! I hate it when this happens.. I still need to get a case for my loose powder.

  2. hmm u know what, don't open the foundation until u get to hong kong. i'm sure cosmetics supplies shops have some kind of container to hold the foundation. i'm from hong kong! don't u just lve that city?

  3. I think majolica majorca's casing can fit.
