I had high expectations to this product due to rave reviews on different forums and blog, but alas I was disappointed, and had better results from low-end makeup brands like Fashion21 (their foundation sticks are HG material, in my opinion of course.)
I got the shade in FS45 which was recommended for those who have NC30 skintones, It was too yellow and a bit too dark for me. (K!!! You’re not yellow!!! Hahaha). It had a nice texture, easy to blend, scent is tolerable and there’s a lot of product in the tube, but that’s where all the nice things end.
It does not have the staying power that most people raved about, It was gone by noon, and redness can be seen throughout my face 🙁 even when set with a good setting powder. It creased, it settled into fine lines, in short it was ugly. You’re probably noticing the consecutive rants from moi, well I should rant. Because curiosity killed me. I shouldnt have tried sooo many foundations and concealers when I was already using something that works.
Bright side is, it has good coverage. I tested it on my birthmark and after a couple of layers, I couldnt find where my mark is and had to remove the foundation to check.
- Good, excellent coverage.
- Nice creamy blendable texture
- Tolerable smell
