I’ve picked up this foundation by accident. I wanted to try a combination/oily skin version, but I haven’t noticed that the inscription on this one was different. Besides, the shop assistant has assured me that it would work good on me, so I purchased it.

Right off the bat, this version doesn’t suit dry skin!

I’ve got a combination skin type, but it was dry in winter, so the foundation looked incredibly bad on me.

The glass bottle looks decent, although it’s obvious that the inscription is cheap, because all the information in written on the stickers.

What is more, the bottle has no pump. It’s so bad, as it’s liquid and such texture is hard to control.

I could never get used to this bottle.

The texture is medium thick and smooth. I’ve bought the shade 150 Buff for winter. It’s a light shade with a yellow undertone.

I can divide my impressions in 3 types.

1. Autumn

Combination skin. The shade doesn’t suit me, it’s too light. I can’t get used to the pump absence, too much of the product pours out. As a result, it streaks and clogs the pores. Besides, it’s unnoticeable on the face. I always apply it with a brush.

2. Winter

Light and dry skin. This time the foundation spreads out unevenly, although peeling rarely appears on my skin.If it spreads out badly, then the skin is dry. Thus it emphasizes all the imperfections. Besides, it comes off with pieces.

Surprisingly, the shade doesn’t look good, it’s too light.

3. Spring

Light combination skin.

Finally, the shade suits me, but it looks a little bit like a mask on me. I still use the brush, but I liked the result after a beauty blender more, the layer seemed thin and even. I’ve got no problems during this period. The foundation spread out evenly and the staying power was good.

The main characteristics:


+ thick coverage which conceals the reddening and evens out the color.

+ Nice texture.

+ Natural and matte finish.

+ a little goes a long way, though it would be better with a pump.

+ SPF 20.



  • no pump.
  • feels like a mask on the face.
  • Applies to the dry skin badly, albeit it is meant for it.

Let’s see the foundation in use.

On the before photo there are some reddening in the centre of the cheeks after using some disappointing mask. Nevertheless, you can see that it covered them up perfectly.

1-without foundation, 2 - with it, 3 - with foundation and powder.

That’s how it looks after the foundation has set.

Staying power of 6-7 hours. Then it starts to wear off around my nose. The oily sheen appears in 4-5 hours which is good.

Result: I’m confused about the product. It’s something in-between.

I didn’t like the packaging without a pump and that it doesn’t work with dry skin, though the manufacturer claimed it will.

I recommend it only for the girls with normal or combined skin.

Thanks for reading my review!
