I am in love with this product. This is a powder foundation but the finish is like liquid. It's really true what they say. The powder gives you that luminous, glowing effect. Maybe because of the light reflecting particles in the product. This provides decent coverage and it didn't break me out. Because of this, I would want to try the other products in the Kanebo Media line. It goes to show that you don't really have to pay a lot for good quality.

I didn't like this foundation at first because it looked very cakey. I decided to give it one more try and used my brush to apply instead of the sponge. I love the effect! People commented that my skin was glowing. Give it some time to set and it will give you a flawless look. If you don't have time to wait for it to set, spritz some mac charged water and it looks so great! My pores are less obvious and evens out my skin. I also like the fact that it has a high SPF content and it didn't break me out. This is a good product.
I'm the type who usually doesn't want to wear lipstick in an obvious way so I usually just go for lipbalms. There are times though when I find that I want color and I'd have to layer my lipbalm and lipstick to get the desired effect. I find that NYX tinted lip spa is the product that fulfills this. It gives that moisturizing effect of a lipbalm and a hint of color, just enough to give me noticeable color but not look too made-up. I can also apply this anywhere as a mirror is not needed to ensure an even application. I just wish that they can come up with more shades and improve the packaging as the product rubs against the side of the tube after some time.
