Hello everyone! I’ve been writing a lot of non-makeup posts as of date because Geof and I were swamped with mommy-events this May! Not only that, I was recently infected with a flesh-eating bacteria (WATCH: My Flesh Eating Bacteria Story) that I had no drive to shoot beauty related posts. But I wanted to share something awesome with y’all so today we’ll be reviewing KATE TOKYO’s The Base Zero Powdery Skin Maker.
Are you problematic with your oily skin? Tired of foundations caking or settling in your pores? Then this base product is probably for you!
What? Kate Tokyo The Base Zero Powdery Skin Maker
How much? 960php
Where to buy? Kanebo Counters, Watsons, SM Beauty, Leading Department Stores
KATE Tokyo The Base Zero Powdery Skin Maker
Packaging – It comes in a sleek glass-like pump bottle that’s actually plastic *wink wink*
Coverage – Light to Medium
Texture – Thick, lotion like consistency
Scent – No strong recognizable scent. But the bottle says it has fragrance.
Longevity – Stays on and adhered on my skin up to 5 hours despite the heat and humidity
Price – At 960php per bottle I consider this a mid-range priced product
Thoughts – Japanese formulated foundations are one of the best IMO. They mastered the art of creating something that wears long but still feels like. The Base Zero has a thick lotion texture that isn’t runny. Blend fast because it dries almost immediately after application. If you don’t like using your fingers you can also use your favorite sponges or beauty blenders.
See my before & after photos. It covered redness around my nose, chin, and also some of my acne scarring. The satiny coverage is a dream! It’s like my skin but matte and imperfections blurred. The color also wears pretty long making it perfect for oily skin. But…
I AM SAD THAT THE PRESS SAMPLE I GOT WAS NOT IN MY SHADE. I got the shade in 05 which is the darkest in their line. It’s like 3 shades darker than what I am so the results are not as flattering as what I wanted to achieve.
See reference below for shade guide.
My shade in Kanebo is usually OCC. Their medium neutral. I’m pretty excited about this foundation. If I didn’t have a huge-a$$ pile of base makeup in my stash I’d probably purchase a bottle with my shade.
