When Fenty Beauty dropped 40 shades worth of foundation on the makeup world, it was met with a chorus of “finally’s”. Rihanna wanted her brand to be inclusive, which meant giving women of all colors the option to rock her glow-making cosmetics line. About time someone did it, right?

Locally, we haven’t been as lucky. There just aren’t enough Pinoy-made brands that cater to our broad spectrum of skin colors—but Pink Sugar is certainly trying.
ICYMI, we’ve raved about Pink Sugar’s Our Lil’ Secret Foundation before. At just P399, it wowed us with its lightweight, creamy-soft consistency, nourishing ingredients, and budge-proof powder matte finish. And now, with two additional shades in the lineup, we like it even more. Sure, the move is nowhere near as boundary-breaking as Fenty’s. But we’d say it’s a step in the right direction for morena representation in local cosmetics.

So, how do the new Medium Deep and Sienna shades fare on Pinay skin? We swatched ‘em, along with the rest of the collection, so you can imagine how they might look on you. Take note: this foundation leans on the cool-toned end of the spectrum. The lighter ones come out peach-tinged, while the darker ones veer bronze-orange. Keep that in mind if you’re looking to give this a whirl!
