VOV Two Way Cake- Matte and Pearly Foundation Powder Review

VOV Two Way Cake- Matte and Pearly Foundation Powder

Hello girlies,

As I told you I have found my new love in makeup, so I’m much into make-up these days *wink*. I have recently picked up my first compact powder from VOV as I love their products for the high quality satisfaction at affordable rates. So, here I review VOV Two Way Cake- Matte and Pearly Foundation Powder.


Product Description: Matte and pearly foundation powder. Oil control. Instant radiant effect. Translucent and natural perfect.

Price and Quantity: Rs. 250 for 7 gms.

My Shade: 33 Dark Beige

Packaging: It comes in a glass and steel case that opens in two ways. The upper case contains the cake and has a glass lid attached to it, while the lower case contains a sponge applicator and a mirror on the back of the upper case. The two way opening is fun to use! The applicator works well, but doesn’t give that soft feel upon application.


Shelf Life: 2 years (approx.)

My take on VOV Two Way Cake- Matte and Pearly Foundation Powder:

I picked up this compact as soon as I saw the ‘matte’ thing on the packet (P.S. I have a weakness for matte products). As the compact shade is dark beige it matches well with Indian skin tones like mine. I use this compact powder over my foundation which is of natural beige shade. No doubt it gives a matte and pearly finish as it claims, but I need to work hard on blending to achieve that promised finish. Otherwise it looks a bit powdery. I’m using it for parties for 2 weeks now and I’m very happy with the results. It stays long for 5-6 hours, controls oil and doesn’t get washed away with facial sweat. Thus, it keeps my face calm and neat. Though it is not mentioned on the pack or case the SA told me it’s waterproof as well. Moreover, it is light to wear and perfect for daily use. I just love the smooth complexion and the radiant look it offer by covering my blemishes and dark spots. And yes, the smell is awesome. All in all, it gives a natural flawless look and doesn’t look made up at all.


Pros of VOV Two Way Cake- Matte and Pearly Foundation Powder:

• Gives a natural matte finish once blended well
• Has a lovely smell that stays throughout
• Oil free and controls sweat
• Easy on pocket
• Last long for 5-6 hours
• Lightweight and perfect for daily use
• No breakouts yet
• Covers dark spots and blemishes with a smooth finish
• Comes with a free mirror and sponge applicator
• Two way case keeps the cake and applicator away from each other, resulting in no product wastage


Cons of VOV Two Way Cake- Matte and Pearly Foundation Powder:

• I wish it came with a better applicator as this sponge applicator doesn’t give a soft feel during application
• Requires time and effort to blend well
• Not for those who want a flawless finish with just one swipe

My Rating: 4.5/5 (-0.5 for the applicator)

Will I Repurchase VOV Two Way Cake- Matte and Pearly Foundation Powder?

Though I’m very happy with the results, but I would still look for a compact powder that gives a magical effect without so much effort on blending.


Do I Recommend VOV Two Way Cake- Matte and Pearly Foundation Powder ?

I highly recommend this compact given it lives up to the expectations of a good compact powder at such an affordable price!

“ Stay gorgeous with smooth skin and happy thoughts ”
