Review: Kanebo Kate Mineral Liquid Foundation

Product Info from KATE:
An advanced mineral liquid foundation that is gentle on the skin with reliable visible pore coverage.

* Double-effect mineral powder (skin protection and visible pore coverage)
* Multiple moisturising ingredients (olive oil, almond oil, jojoba oil)
* Paraben (preservative) free
* Ultra-violet absorber
* Fragrance-free

RETAIL PRICE: Php 900. Available at Watsons stores.

WEIGHT: 25 gramsLink
SHADES : Available in 3 shades

* no weird makeup smell
* has spf 20
* offers sheer to medium builadable coverage
* the shade that I have is yellow toned and perfect for Asian skintones.
* texture is non-sticky
* easy to apply and blend even with my fingertips
* no white cast on photos

* doesn't cake during the day (if set well with powder)
* evens out my skintone and looks natural as if I'm not wearing foundation.
* good oil control (about 4-5 hours max)
Note: I have Normal skin with slightly oily t-zone.

* you will need a separate concealer for severe dark circles, pimple scars etc.

* for oily skintypes, applying a face primer is recommended for the foundation to last longer.
* always set the foundation with loose powder to absorb oil and prevent caking during the day.

People who's looking for a matte finish foundation without the sticky or heavy feel.

I like the texture and the lightweight feel but I need a foundation with a bit more coverage to cover my pimple marks.

Like you, I am also battling major pimples. Yes, better coverage is always appreciated. But I'm happy you like the overall effect of this makeup.

Thanks for reviewing!
