I'm not sure how this hasn't gotten better reviews...
I really love korean makeup (esp. the twincake/powder foundation stuff), and when I got this in a swap, I was pretty stoked.
This is a bajillion times better than Studio Fix which looked ashy and cakey on me.
This is pretty good-- good, buildable coverage, fine-milled powder blends over and sets my tinted moisturizer beautifully, and I like the packaging. A bit on the longer, chunkier side, but better than a lot of them out there.
I have combo-oily skin and I only need one (if any) touch-ups even as the weather has gotten warmer. (stays put with the MoM base!) I have this in #23 (sunny or sandy beige) and I'm NC30.
Very nice coverage, a matte-silklike full coverage.
Easy-quick to apply, one sweep and provides you fulll coverage just like a liquid foundation would.
Scent is pleasant.
The packaging needs improvement ... its nice but no wow factor.
I'm not an expert on pressed powders because I don't really wear them. Any how, I bought this in Mong Kok, Hong Kong while on vacation. The saleslady talked my dad (of all people) into buying this for me. As if he knew anything about makeup in the first place! LOL
Any how, it works like it should (like I said, I'm no expert in pressed powders). My only gripe is that the packaging sucks - when you open the compact, you still have to flip a clear plastic panel over before you can use the powder. I guess it's a good thing because it prevents messes but to me it is such a hassle.
EDIT: THE CAKE SHATTERED ALL OVER MY PURSE!
Very light water-based foundation suitable for oily skins. Has little staying power and several touch ups were necessary to last an entire day.
Got this in Color NO.13(lightest). Comes with two puffs(cotton & sponge). I've used the sponge puff which give me a more translucent coverage but still covers my "imperfections" well. My face looked so silky and smooth,lasted me around 5 hours without oiliness on my T-zone.Great! continued >>
This "twincake" is basically a powder foundation. I've only used it dry since it covers enough that way so I don't have to use it wet. Comes with 2 applicators, a puff and a sponge. Light and airy, makes skin look smooth. I'm a color 21, which is similar to mac NC25 studiofix. Scented a bit, but not overpowering. Available at Korean cosmetics stores or online.
