I’ve been wanting to buy this foundation ever since I saw this topped on a Japanese magazine meant for cosmetics. There are a lot of praises about this product and now it’s time for me to try and test it.
I bought this from a department store here in Japan for ¥1,800 (tax not included). It is very easy to find this brand and is also available on most drug stores, variety stores, and online shops. There are 5 shades available as of now.
- This foundation is semi matte.
- It contains 30 grams of the product.
- Non-comedogenic tested.
- It has SPF25 PA++.
- It contains Hyaluronic acid and Hamamelis extract.
Good thing that it has a dispenser so that you can control the amount to use and thete will be less or no mess.
This has no scent which is perfect because I now worries that scented foundation might irritate my skin.
I tested this product with no primer so I can really see its own capabilities. And the applicator that I used is the traditional liquid foundation brush.
This is the maximum coverage it gives. It covers some of the spots but some are still quite noticeable especially redness and bumps but it will be much easier to hide those with concealer on this situation.
It lightened my under eye area so there was no need to apply a concealer anymore.
The effect on the pores is dramatic. Even though I didn’t put primer on this test, it still managed to hide those pores. What more if there’s a primer under.
It improved The tone on the side of my nose but the whiteheads that were not obvious before are emphasized with the foundation on.
When it comes to hiding lines, it did great.
I also tried using a dry puff and wet puff and both have same effect, but using a foundation brush gives more coverage. When it comes to building coverage, the puff will do better and will be much easier.
I can’t take pictures on this test because I have a work but my work requires me to look on a lot of mirrors so I am able to check my face situation from time to time. I also wear a face mask almost everyday.
This foundation looked good for about 6 hours without a primer and a setting powder. The weather that day is super humid. But when I wore a face mask, the foundation under it transferred slightly and in less than hour it looked bad.
This product is very comfortable. I didn’t felt dryness right after applying the product. There were no itch and irritations. It also felt light on the skin.
This is a great product and will be much better when you put a good primer under it.
