Product Analysis

How is the packaging? The packaging is simple yet good for its price. It is not inside a box or plastic wrap which is good because there is less waste. It only has a sticker seal so you will know that it is not yet opened.

Is there a scent? There is no scent.

How to use it? Before applying makeup, take an adequate amount of the product and spread in the whole face (as stated on the back of the product) and blend carefully to avoid unevenness.

What is the texture? My answer here is quite unexpected for a cheap product. The texture is addicting to touch. After applying, you will have smooth skin just like a baby.

Is it easy to blend? It is very easy and just by using your fingers, you will be able to blend it right away.

It brightens up my skin tone.

Are there visible effects after putting on the foundation? There is only 1 effect that I noticed. First is my pores are quite minimized but still visible.

I only used a very light liquid foundation.

Is it buildable? I don’t think so because I have tried building it but nothing happened.

What is the best tool to use with it? It is best to apply it with fingers but free to use any method you are comfortable with.

Was it comfortable? Yes, it was but it will still differ with different skin types.


This DAISO ESPOLEUR Makeup Base Color Control – Yellow doesn’t work well with me but I think the effect will be more visible with purplish tones. As a makeup primer, I think it wouldn’t be able to compete with average-class primers because it lacks effects.
