Testing out AWG foundation

This is really long overdue. Because of a lot of raves, I bought samples of AWG (Adorned with Grace) foundation. It's been with me since December last year but I wasn't able even open up my samples and find my match. Well I finally did, and I'm a Hope 3.8! My lament is that the sample is not very generous. However, I just got them at $12 for 15 samples which is already inexpensive.
AWG seems to be a very forgiving brand since their shades are so wearable. I find that I can also use Faith 4.0 and Faith 4.2.

I roadtested their foundation and here's how it looked like (my blush seemed to come off very light in the picture):


  • Bare Naturals S5 Primer
  • Sweetscents Hide-a-Pore in Medium
  • Ellana Sheer Velvet Finishing Powder in White Chocolate Mocha
  • AWG foundation in Hope 3.8
  • Joppa Dewy Finishing Silk in Sheer


  • Lunasol Brow Styling Mascara in Brown
  • Monave Lidwash in Buttercup
  • Ellana Undereye Concealer in Awake


  • Ellana Blush in Happiness
  • Aromaleigh Illuminating Perle Powder in Whisper


  • Silk Naturals Lip Gloss in Breathless

BTW, please pardon the damp hair. I had just taken a bath and my hair takes a long time to dry.

The foundation had a creamy, matte (but not flat) finish with heavy coverage. With a primer, plus the sandwich method (which I do for all my foundations) this lasted on my face the whole day.

I also have a sample of their Divine Oil-control Powder, which is supposed to be divine! LOL. I haven't tried it yet but I'll try it soon and see how it goes.

Hi, there! If you haven't tried out AWG's primer yet, which do you use to sandwich your foundation? I have the AWG primer, but haven't tried it out yet myself.
