I Am Tan!

I'm so fed up with the abundance skin whitening beauty products! I've been trying to find a face powder that matches my skin tone. Seeing as I'm living in the Philippines and the vast majority of people are tan I thought it would have an easy go of it. Sadly, every shop I've been too only has powders that waaaay lighter. Plus all the sales people keep pushing skin whitening creams, lotions and facial washes on to me.


I don't understand the Filipino obsession with being fair. I really don't get it.

not just in the Phillipines, but in any ex European-colony countries.

If you can get Maybelline products wehre you are they are probably your best mainstream cosmetics bet
