Review and Swatch : Skin Food Royal Honey Glow Foundation SPF 30/PA ++

Tuesday, November 22, 2011

Lately, I have been into foundations, especially liquid ones. Probably because I've always been a tinted moisturizer user, so when getting the coverage from foundations, I'm thrilled.

Skin Food Royal Honey Glow Foundation SPF 30/PA ++

A foundation that applies like a second skin while providing expert coverage for skin flaws. Adds a lovely honey glow for a natural-looking smooth complexion.

Ingredients
It's all in Korean. Again..

How I Use It
I squeeze a pump on the back of my hand. With my fingers, I dot it on my forehead, cheeks, chin and nose. Using either my fingers, makeup sponge or a brush, I evenly spread it all over the face. My preferable method is using fingers since the product gets blended easily.

What I Like About It
  • I immediately like the pump packaging. It makes my life a lot easier *drama queen* 
  • The texture is more to the creamier side, which is all the more suitable for normal to dry skin type
  • One of the easiest I've ever applied. Blending doesn't take much work or speed
  • Currently, the shade matches my skintone perfectly
  • It doesn't oxidize throughout the day. It stayed the same on my face even after 6 hours
  • It has medium coverage (able to make 'em acne scars 'disappear' momentarily and evens out my skin tone, hence decreases appearance of redness)
  • The foundation lasted around 6 hours on my face, if I don't sweat or rub my face
  • It feels lightweight and looks natural (not cakey or made up) 
What I Hate About It
  • The price is quite high compared to drugstore foundations in Jakarta, starting at Rp 170.000,-
  • There are only two shades available; Light Beige (1) and Natural Beige (2)
Swatch
Thank you for the pump~ ^.^
My shade is Light Beige
It doesn't have too much of a yellow undertone
Excuse the sleepy face, I just woke up ^^;;
Notice the sun spot on my left-hand cheek (your right)? It's concealed! ^.^
However, you can still see my pores and hideous acne scars on my nose
Summary
Overall, this is a lightweight foundation that has medium coverage and is targeted towards normal to dry skin type. The sunscreen in it is a love hate relationship because I love the extra protection from the sun, but hate it if I want to wear it at night, especially in flash photography. 

I would recommend this to :
  • Someone who has normal to dry skin
  • Someone who has a light to light medium skin tone
  • Someone who has uneven skin tone and redness
So, have you tried this foundation? ^^
