Witch's Pouch Foundation Review & Swatch

“Disclosure: This product was sent to me for review purposes in exchange for my honest opinion after trying it out.” Complete disclosure here 

Hello, lovelies~ Foundation has been one of my weaknesses in the 'base' category. I have been a fan of trying out new face primers, base, and foundations ever since I started this blog. Since I had the opportunity to try out some new Korean cosmetics brand at Althea, I chose one foundation among other things from a brand called Witch's Pouch.

The foundation comes in a white box with a black border on the sides. It has a cute witch’s hat printed on the front, which is appropriate for the brand of the product. The ingredients list are visible on one side of the box, complete in English and Korean language.

The bottle of the foundation is nearly the same as the outer box, especially the adorable little witch’s hat in the center. It is placed in an airless pump bottle that is clear, so the amount of foundation left can be seen from the outside.

The shade I got is the darkest out of the two like most Korean foundations, which is number 23. I thought it was going to be too light for my skintone, but it turned out the opposite. It was slightly too dark for my current skin tone, surprisingly. I ended up using a brightening primer to help lighten the shade a notch.

Thankfully, I have been having a relatively good skin (no acne for the past two months), so I darkened the photo to see the scars on my nose being slightly concealed by this foundation. The dark spot on my left cheek is also partly concealed.

The foundation gives a semi matte finish, which is a combination between matte and dewy, making it looks slightly more natural compared to a matte finish. It blends effortlessly onto my face, either with fingers or a brush. I prefer to use a brush because it leaves my fingers clean, so it just saves time.

As much as I love how it blends and looks on my skin, it does have a tendency to transfer to other surfaces (clothes, in particular). Just make sure to blot any excess product with one ply of tissue paper and finish it off with a setting powder or dusting powder or what have you. 

Staying power is average on my combination oily skin, ranging around 3 hours tops if I were to stay in an air-conditioned room without too much activity. I think you can get away with a longer staying power, given you have dry skin.

Overall, I like the look of this foundation and how light it feels on my skin. It just made my skin tone look more even, without any redness, but still look like my own skin. However, it does transfer easily onto other surface, so I'm a bit worried about that aspect. Staying power is not the greatest on my skin type, but I think it can be good for drier skin types.

What do you think? Have you tried any product from Witch's Pouch? Let me know what you think of this in the comments below. Thanks for reading and until then, I'll see you later~
