I am surprised there has been such little hype around Kanebo products, as I find they are definately an underated brand. Although their products are on the pricey side, everything I've bought from them over the past 8 years has been outstanding quality.
This foundation is a very natural looking one, I would say light-medium coverage. If you have acne scarring, most likely you'd had to team this up with a concealer. But overall a great everyday foundation which gives a nice glow and almost looks like second skin. Love the formulation, so easy to blend however doesn't tend to last so well in hot weather unless you use a setting powder.

*aaaaah* angels singing! This is an amazing product. I've always been a very loyal follwer of estee lauder double wear, but this it is something else. I always struggle to find my shade in foundation and when I usually do the foundation will have a nasty tendency to break me out horribly!. I started using this about three months ago and I'm addicted I can't get enough of this foundation, one pump is more than enough to cover my whole face, it goes on sheer but can be built up to a full coverage. It comes with a pump so I'm all smiles. I use the shade amber beige 204.5 and it matches me perfectly, I don't even use powder anymore. Only con is it doesn't cover my dark circles well and I have to layer it but it still looks as though I have perfect skin. I don't feel it on my skin and I find that it masks my pores and lines, and doesn't settle into my under eye or laughter lines. I do find it transfers very quickly and lasts about 8-10 hours and then it starts to fade :(. I also found it works best without a primer and that patting it on with a brush gives a much more radiant finish. I will keep repurchasing this, it costs R440 here in south africa but it's well worth every penny. I wave farewell to my double wear. It hydrates my undereye area perfectly, I suggest everyone try this it truly is the best foundation I've ever come across and also it smells like silk. I rate it 5 out of 5 because its everything I've searched for and more. Now I don't get compliments on my make up but on my skin.
After using it repeatedly now, i've started to notice the coverage is becoming a tad bit to sheer for me, but i take a drop ofmy estee lauder double wear and mix it and i get a radiant finish...
So I'm updating my review this broke me out like crazy!!!! I checked the ingredients and there's mineral oil, it clogged my pores so badly.

I have a pale and very dry skin, also my skin is aging (I am in my thirties now), what makes it difficult finding a good foundation.
This foundation was recommended to me by a professional make-up artist of a local make-up and styling studio in Berlin.
I am using this foundation with the color Soft Beige FF 202 for about 4 months now. It blends in perfectly and matches my skintone very well.
Before I apply the foundation I use a normal drugstore moisturizer and Mac Prep and Prime. When using a face primer it is easier to apply the foundation and you will need less.
The foundation is easy to apply with a beautyblender, as well as with my hands when I am in a hurry. I did not try it wih a foundation brush, since the beauty blender works perfectly for me.
I have some redness in my face and slightly under eye circles. But I find the coverage strong enough, I don't use any concealer.
Since my skin is aging and very dry, I don't set it with powder, in my case powder makes it look worse, no matter which foundation I use. But even without setting the foundation stays on all day.
Allthough the foundation is a bit expensive, (40,00 Euro's in Germany, but a Bobbi Brown foundatin also is like 35,00 Euro's), I will definately buy this foundation again! I absolutely recommend this product for a dry and aging skin!

I've got dry, sensitive, acne prone skin with some scarring and read areas.
I usually gets dry spots around my nose, but this foundation feels like it gives moist.
It feels very natural to the skin, I've gotten a perfect match to my skin tone with FF103, warm beige.
It's easy to apply since it's so light and watery.
I've used it a lot for the last couple of months and I still haven't gotten any break-outs. I've even gotten complements on my skin - never happened before - ever!
I tend to get very shiny on on my forehead after three or four hours. (I'm hoping that it will help with some primer and maybe some finishing powder.)
I would like it to cover a little better. It can be built up a little, but I'm still experimenting on it. If you have red areas and larger scarring I think it's necessary to use concealer.
For now this is the best foundation I've ever tried, but I hope that I some day can find one who's got only pros!

It doesnt cover skin very well, but I like that it feel light and suits with my skin tone.

best foundation EVER !! i love the dewy look it leaves behind. i actually mix it with the maXfactor liquid foundation because the colours are limited so i need to make it a little lighter. but i still love it i mix them together and that doesnt bother me, the results are amazing

This was the first time i have bought enything from Kanebo and I am very disappointed. This foundation has moderate coverage and he colour (FF 202 Soft Beige) suits me perfectly, but it looks very cakey and powdery on my skin and shows up all my pores. Besides, I have very oily skin and this foundation just slides off my face a couple of hours after application and makes me look just awful. So I don't like this foundation at all.

I am using natural beige. It's a very watery-like consistency which i like because it makes it easy to apply all over the face with a brush. I like the colour, and i have no issues of oxidization. It gives a very natural look yet there is medium coverage, so that's good. Make sure your skin is moisturized bc if you have dry skin, it can create some flaky parts upon application. I would reconsider this product when i finish, the only set back is the price, 33 pounds!!!!
Also, i feel like one pump is not enough to cover my face! so yes quite pricey!

I would def not buy this foundation again! I just love the Kanebo cream finish foundation, which gives a lot of moist and has a buildable coverage. BUT, due to the price of that one, I´d like to try another one and I thought Kanebo is such a good brand, so....But no, this foundation made my somewhat dry skin extremely dry, and all my pores are visible all of a sudden. The finish looks kind of "powdery" which I do not like, caus I have fine lines here and there. I find that it is not especially buildable either, and for the fullest coverage, you need more than one pump.
I bought the 202, and I´m NC20 for refferance. The colour was all right, but a bit too much pinkish. Nope, just didn´t like this one at all, and can not understand the high scores on this one. Think I´ll have to go back to the more expensive one, cream finish - that´s really a great one for dry skin and for those of us who like the flawless, polished look.
I´ll still give it a 2, cause of the great bottle and just because I like the brand (other products) so much....
Ladies, go for another foundation than this!

Bought this after the high reviews here but was dissapointed due to the limited shades and wearability. The lightest shade 202 was still too dark and would suit NC30 more. Furthermore the shades are towards the orange or pink specktrum which does not work well with yellow-based skin tones. I also found the foundation rather drying with coverage being medium.
Will not repurchase and much prefer Kanebo's Liquid Finish which has a variety of shades for different skin tones and offers better coverage.
