What i wanna review and talk about is their cream foundation... I got 3 shade of their cream foundation, like i said the way they named the shade of their cream foundation makes me fall in love. It made easier to define what shade to buy. They are kuning gading, kuning langsat, and sawo matang. One shade i didn't buy is kuning pengantin (yellow bride) is a yellow shade for traditional brides.
You guys probably not familiar with this shade and more familiar with NC/NW (Neutral Cool/ Neutral Warm) to differ the shade of foundation and powder.
From this website i finally define and got conclusion of what shade goes along for nc and nw in Indonesian Women skin tone. Warms are more peachy/pinky and Cools are more of a bluish/yellow.
Let's get into the swatches, so you guys can have better explanation.
in thick transparent jar
when opened : top is kuning langsat, bottom left is kuning gading and bottom right is sawo matang
Kuning Gading : Goes well for NW 20-25
Sawo Matang : Goes well for NC 35-37
Note : This is just my opinion by reading reviews and checking websites. If you find it helpful then i'm glad, if you can tell or inform me a better conclusion i will gladly review it again, thank you :)

I did used this a lot for doing my clients and myself. And i love the texture, easy to blend (i usually wear this with wet sponge and just tap it on my face not by dragging it), for the combination skin it's doing the job well but on oily skin it probably need a better primer. I used this with primer (The Skin Food and Revlon). And set it with finishing spray or evian.

The foundation looks so dark, but if you blend it well it matches with your skin tone perfectly.
If you find the cream foundation or liquid foundation is darker than your skin tone after applied, you can set it with a lighter tone of compact powder or two way cake (whatever you prefer) and for the finishing don't forget to wear a loose powder ( it absorb the oil and set your powder and foundation to your skin).
