Product Review : CandyDoll Liquid Foundation in #1

Hooray for CandyDoll! Awhile ago, CandyDoll came out with a new liquid foundation that comes in 3 shades. Being a huge CandyDoll fan, I had to lay my fatty hands on the product!

Got it in shade 1!

The back! Okay I'm not going to be gushing about packaging anymore because we all already know how kawaii CandyDoll products are!

Do not be fooled by the shade of the foundation here. The bottle makes it look a little wonky!

No ingredients list... Sorry about that!

Instead of your usual squeeze tube/pump, this one comes with a dropper like opening. So I advise one to drip about 6 drops and go back for more if it isn't sufficient.

This foundation is one with very strong yellow undertones. It is ever so slightly too yellow for me but that can be corrected with a lil bit of purple loose powder!

That's the swatch! In reality it's a little more yellow than orange.

Coverage test! Okay if you're not happy with the coverage of this, scroll down a little further.

L - Before / R - After

Please ignore the difference in lighting, the after picture was taken when it was about to rain already so it's somewhat darker and less warm. I had a few zits and redness that day because it was nearing that time of the month. Can you see the vast difference?!

Initially when I saw that the foundation had a really watery / runny texture, my expectations fell. I thought it would be a really sheer foundation. To my greatest pleasure, this performed like my Lancome Teint Miracle! Lightweight, perfect coverage and beautiful finish. This finishes semi matte so you don't look like some plastic mannequin. In fact though all my pimples/scars/undereye circles are covered nearly completely, I feel nothing on my skin! I also did not detect any scent.

Oil control wise, I'd say my face starts to shine in about 3 hours so I recommend setting this with your favorite oil control powder! I do have to say, because this foundation doesn't contain shimmers like the Lancome Teint Miracle, it will emphasize dry skin. So you have to make sure your skin's nicely pampered and moisturized before applying this.

In short, I will DEFINITELY buy this again once I've run out. This costs $38.90 and is a lot cheaper than my other favorite foundation that costs about $60-70. And I swear, Japanese stuff are really of great quality. I love this as much as my other CandyDoll face stuff and all of them are my absolute favorites!

You can get this from BlingAlways for only$38.90 and a bottle will last you a really long time. Also if you want to sheer this out, you can always just add a lil moisturizer to it and mix it up! I get my eyeliners, face powders, blushers and stuff from BlingAlways and I've loved them all :) She was an absolute dear to deliver this to my home!

Texture: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ (Super lightweight~)
Coverage: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ (It's a miracle in a bottle too!)
Oil Control: ★ ★ ★ ☆ ☆ (Average for most people, below average for those with EXTREMELY oily skin.)
Overall: ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆ (Definitely repurchasing! One of my only two favorite foundations!)
