This foundation is my favorite by far. I try every single foundation I can get my hands on. It complements my skin so well. I have normal to dry skin and it does not accentuate any dryness or fine lines. ❤❤❤
I have 40+ dry skin that is prone to redness and irritation. I usually have trouble with foundations making my skin look dry and flaky. Koh Gen Do makes my skin look fabulous and does not dry it out even in the dry winter months. It provides build-able coverage and leaves a dewy finish that lasts all day. If I want a more matte finish, I apply Koh Gen Do loose powder on top. I have used a beauty sponge, brush and my fingertips for application. Oddly, I think it looks best blended with my fingertips. It does take more time to blend that way though. I understand this is an Asian brand but it's too bad they don't offer more color choices.
My skin is very finicky and sensitive, with bouts of redness, dry patches, and occasionally acne. Prior to Koh Gen Do I tried samples of over a dozen foundations, none of which worked with my difficult skin conditions. The color recommended to me was 013, which turned out to be a perfect match. I'm an NC30 in Mac StudioFix Powder Foundation, and 3.5 in Urban Decay's Naked Foundation line, and a medium in IT Cosmetics CC Cream, to give you an idea of color. Initially I was disappointed in Koh Gen Do, because I applied it with a sponge -- which didn't work. The oils in the foundation separate with additional outside moisture during the application process. I also didn't give the foundation sufficient time to oxidize. This is the rare makeup that actually looks better over time, instead of looking its best immediately. The best application appears to be using your fingers, and gently massaging it into your face. The color pigment is so rich, you can cover your entire face with one pump from the beautiful bottle. After a set with powder, it lasts all day, doesn't streak, and kind of takes over your skin so it looks clear and healthy, and not like you're wearing a mask. I don't even need to touch up with powder throughout the day, and I'm a very active person. The sun protection is also good and non-irritating -- no face itching, and no breakouts. Full removal at the end of the day requires a double cleanse (you will truly see just how much lasts when you do this), but after removal my skin looks brighter. This is officially my holy grail foundation. The rumors are true about this one!
Lightweight formula that looks beautiful on the skin. It never feels like I'm wearing any foundation at all. It provides a light to medium coverage I really don't see it being built up to full though I enjoy mixing it with a full coverage foundation (say MUFE Ultra HD stick or KVD Lock It) if I want that flawless coverage. All in all I will repurchase. My MAIN complaint is the color selection. They don't provide a single shade darker than tan. It's a disgrace.
Beautiful colors, I have shades 213 and 143. 213 for winter months and 143 for summer. Only foundation that matches me perfectly. Perfect amount of coverage, blends beautifully.
I have searched a lot for the sheer lightweight foundation and finally I have settled on this. I use the shade 143 and my mac shade is nc35. This foundation has the same consistency as the Armani luminous silk but it does not become oily at the end of the day. It remains dewy and gives a skin-like finish. Also blends very easily with fingers or brush. I can use this in a hurry without worrying about powder or concealer. I have combination-dry skin. Great choice for everyday foundation.
Purchased 213 which is OK for winter. Week later I ordered shade 123 right now I am mixing both and they are perfect! Come summer I may use just 123. I do not need to layer for more coverage. I use a brush and than press into my skin with a damp Beauty Blender. Perfect!
I rarely wear makeup and when I do I buy the dior foundation since it seems like the lightest american foundation. This foundation is literally the best. I put it on and all of my coworkers kept complementing on my skin. They said it looked so glowy and flawless. I told them I was wearing this foundation. They said it looked so natural. For me it's really important that the makeup doesn't cake on and is easy to blend (since I am not at all a pro at applying makeup) this is one of the easiest things to put on. The makeup feels light! When you are applying it you can't even feel it (unlike the dior one). One of the best things about this is that it lasts and stays looking flawless. This is an investment you NEED to make.
This is a beautiful foundation that looks so natural, undetectable on the skin, but still delivers a solid medium coverage!
Being a mature person who has shopped and used a variety of cosmetics over the years I must say Koh Gen Do finally fills the bill. A little goes a long way yet gives good coverage. I will continue to use.
