Product Review: Fanny Serrano Two Way Cake Foundation in Silk

Fanny Serrano Two Way Cake Foundation in Silk
I bought this foundation a month ago and I have been using it ever since. I think I've given it enough time to make a good review out of this product and show you how well it works for me. 

First of all, I was introduced to this foundation by Ms. Say Artillero and her review and constant use of this product convinced me to buy one. What I really like about this product is that it doesn't cake on me. It provides a very flawless matte finish. And aside from that, the product line has a number of shades to choose from all of which, I believe, caters to Filipina's skin tone. 

The packaging is pretty and sturdy but I wish they placed the mirror on the cap so I don't have to flip the foundation just to look at the mirror. 

Anyway, the SA told me that my shade is Silk. It has a yellow undertone that suits me well. It brightens my skin without me looking pale. The smell of this product doesn't appeal to me much but it doesn't smell bad either. I bought this for Php 399 which is very affordable especially for a good quality foundation. It is two way- if you want light to medium coverage, you may use a dry sponge and if you want a heavy coverage, feel free to wet the sponge then apply. It's very good in concealing blemishes too.

Have you tried this product? I think you can buy two shades darker of this foundation and use it for contouring. I wanna buy Organza. ^___^ Tell me what you think about it. Feel free to leave a comment below.

Have a great day!


  1. Hello, Khee! :) It really depends on your skin tone. I have a fair yellowish skin tone so I choose Silk. I haven't tried satin so I don't really know its shade and undertone. But I think you can try the tester before buying. To test if it matches your skin, swatch each shade on your jawline. You have to make sure that the shade matches both your face and neck. I hope that helps. :)

  2. Hi! I'm still undecided what shade to pick. The one in satin or the silk one. I'd really appreciate ur answer :) Thanks!

  3. Thanks Pammy. I don't think it smells like granny makeup but I can't find the best description of its smell. Weird lang talaga. Haha! Sana nga unscented na lang. ^___^

  4. I use the one in Orleans and I absolutely love it! =)

  5. Your skin looks so smooth and flawless. I wanted to like FS foundies so much, I only wish they don't smell like granny makeup. If only they can make it unscented.

  6. I've been wanting to try this too because of Say! :P Haha! I think I'll pass by Watson's soon! <3 Btw, love your natural look :">

  7. you look great dear! :) i think the foundation blends perfectly with your skin. ;)

  8. Thanks Sugar. I finally found the best foundation that suits my skin. ^___^

  9. i've been really saving up for this one. so flawless!

  10. Thanks to Say who introduced this to me. I was really a liquid foundation user. Good thing it's very affordable. I hope FS won't increase their prices though.
