Hello everyone!

Another product from Ultima II is here and I’m going to give you a short review, hmm, why short? You’ll find out soon.

This is the product, you can easily read the details photograph in the packaging ^__^ click on the image if you wish to see it in larger view.
And I got mine in Aurora Beige shade which is too dark for me  . . . now you know why the review is short, but doesn’t meant I can’t have fun with it heehee!

A bit warning, the liquid is watery and the packaging doesn’t reminds you of how liquid it is and this is a real spill. It’s not creamy nor thick, so in a way actually it is suitable to be placed inside a bottle like this. Just remember to tilt it a bit only and not go all the way, like I did haha ^0^

I did wish I get my shade, but hey, I’ve gotta use the one I have. And I still can use it, if I want a tan look, see it below:

Yep, the coverage is quite okay and easy to blend. It’s just too dark for me. I look like I’ve just having a sun bath. But it does covers the large pores and uneven skin tone. A bit tips for me, if you happen to have a foundation that was too dark, you can always use it as a shading material. Use it under the cheek bones (below the blush on area) and the darker shade will create a slimmer face.

The SPF is low, so it’s not that significant, but I guess it’s better than none at all. The texture is liquid but still felt rich but comfortable when gliding on the skin. Easy to blend with fingers or brush and sponges too. There is a faint musk scent in it but it wont be a problem to anyone.

Overall, a pleasing foundation for daily use. Top it off with loose powder and you are ready for some colors, or if you need a more coverage (like for a photoshoots or some sort) add some pressed powder and then loose powder. There is a bit of talc in the foundation so it does help mattefying your look. Will it stay long hours? Around 5-6 hours in normal condition, not when you’re joining a marathon.

Hi gurls!

Another product from Ultima II and this time is their pressed powder and funny thing thou’ . . .  why is it called nakeds?

Soon I’m gonna find out.



Details from the packaging:

Ultima II
Nakeds Pressed Powder

Microfine silk texture
Natural translucent apperance
Non chaulky

Lightweight
Free of irritants
Minimizes oil breakthrough
Non pore-clogging
Long wearing
Helps protects the skin from the harmful drying effects of the environment

To Use: Touch the sponge applicator lightly to pressed powder. Apply evenly over face and neck

Mine is in 4L (kinda clueless what does it means hehe)

Since the product is given without me having any say on the shades, so first I’m in the doubt thinking it would be too dark for me, or at least will not look nude on me.


Surprise suprise! It look nude on me and overall I’m pretty much liking it. The powder is indeed soft and easily lovable for being blend-able and like a chameleon and adjusting the colors to me. And it does lightweight and well, I didn’t use the sponge, I still prefer using a brush for any base done, and brush do gives better coverage in terms of application and lighter too.

Will I keep using it? Yes! And I completely understand why it is said ‘nakeds’, since it does gives coverage like we’re using none. But the skin tone looks better, more even, matte and like a soft focus glow on your cheat photoshop, the skin look fine!

Suitable for summer and it gives your skin a matte look (so if you want a moist look, this is NOT the powder for you).

Hi all!

Living in a hot and humid land means sweats and grease on the skin almost most of the time. Which I also have and it’s not cool nor fun.

So I try many product that tackle the oily t-zone without being too harsh on the dry cheeks.

These are my before look with my oily forehead and nose. And the heat is making it worst, the sweat become sticky and it ain’t pretty. Making makeup clumps and blotting is needed.

And I just happen to have this Immediate Rescue Stick from Ultima II (from their event), the product long tube is super cute and so does the color.
The details on the packaging:

Instantly dries, purifies, and soothes the skin. Helps to reduce the appearance of local skin imperfections.
To use:
Apply locally. Reapply during the day if necessary.

I’m using it directly on the affected part (affected means oily) and it does instantly dries out, but on some parts that are really oily, it’s still a bit sticky, really just a bit. The scent at first felt fresh but after a while it turn kinda nasty. Like (sorry) acid from vomit. It’s just unbearable for me. So I wipe it all out after 5 minutes.

I don’t know if maybe it’s just me, but it is unpleasant for me. There’s some kind of sharpness of the acidity (clueless where it is from).

Will I use it again? Unfortunately, no. I can’t stand the smell 😦

But maybe it’s just me, my sis claims her nose was fine with it … (trying to be neutral and objective), bottom line, it’s your call 🙂

Last week I was invited to attend a Ultima II event at FX. Beauty Bloggers and the Press are there. A new product launch and some more information.

In front of the venue everything is set. Registration and photo booth.

The dress code is touch of black and silver and here is how I interpreted the colors.

Inside the are ready too!

These are the information of the products.

The products are ‘dressed’ in black with silver packaging, hmm got the connection ^__–

Yes, it’s the collagen, so pretty much it is a products to fight the aging and creating a younger and better looking skin.

Then the event started with performance from the dancer.

And the mc, Ms. Ari.

Then the lovely ambassador and doctor gives us a bit for their expertise to us. Ms.Titi Kamal and her mom are a fan of Ultima II. She is so pretty, polished and her skin looks flawless. The talkshow is informative and the mc are able to make everyone loosen up with her funny remarks.

And later on Ultima II shares their newest passion on getting closer to the curstomer.

Thank you Cosmopolitan and Ultima II for having me!

The color is mine to begin with, it’s always rose. It provide a very (very) light moisturizing effect, kinda standard, the color also not a stay on lipstick. I’ve tried finding more info regarding the products online, but failed to do so. If any Ultima II staff read this post, please do send me a link regarding the products.

Ultima II Rose

So far I use it with lip balms for a more moist effect. It is best to be used with a brush, and easy to clean. It provide a matte vivid rose color that stay for 3-4 hours and it is not comfortable without added moisturizer.
