It is a terrible terrible shame this product had to go under Unlisted brand because it has been in the reigning top 3 spots on Cosme.net's ranking charts. Cosme.net is the Japanese equivalent of MakeUpAlley.
As you probably guessed it, this product is Japanese. All the best-kept secrets come from Japanese cosmetics and im here to share some of them with you! When i first saw this base as no.1 on the ranking charts i hardly batted an eyelid. Or rather i was skeptical. I know the brand Kiss and i shoved it into my mental drawer labelled "kiddy drugstore makeup".
On a recent trip to Tokyo i saw this product so i decided to just try it for fun. Was i sorry for my presumptions, and i finally understood why this cheap drugstore product could ever make it to the no.1 spot. It is the epitome of what a makeup base should do.
1. It smoothes out lines and irregularities
2. It has a lovely bouncy texture and is easy to spread
3. Its tinted, so it gives you a little bit of a natural coverage
4. It melts into your skin and does not leave a sticky residue
5. Its well-equipped with SPF26 PA ++
Ive been searching for a base that can handle my tiny pitted scars, and the best ive found so far is Lancome La Base. However i never got to buy it as the stores were perpetually out of stock. Im just thankful i didnt splurge on that, because this is in no way inferior to the Lancome in any sense, plus it has SPF which Lancome doesn't. Using a Sunblock and then a makeup base is piling on too much of stuff on your face anyway.
This lovely product comes in a beautiful frosted glass bottle with a pump dispenser. A frosted plastic cap covers the pump and has a beautiful pattern embossed on the top. One pump is enough to cover the whole face. At the price of 1680yen (approx US$16), how can you go wrong?!
