This is actually my current HG foundation. It's my first HG anything XD
I got shade B02
A pretty good range of colours I think
30mL for about 4000 yen (at the Hankyu department store in Kawaramachi, Kyoto, Japan).
I'm not sure how much it is at home in Canada, but this stuff is EXPENSIVE!!! (and now that the exchange rate isn't so great for me, it's even worse)
Nonetheless, I don't regret this purchase.
COVERAGE is pretty sheer, maybe no more than a medium coverage.
The smell is the signature scent. I honestly don't know what the smell is. It's definitely not rose (not like the roses that grow in my garden, anyway). It's a bit of a sour smell.
I don't hate the smell most times. Some days, I DO find discomfort with the smell...I dunno why. It's just like how everyone has those good days and those blah days.
Bottle is cute. It's made of glass. A pump would be nice. Or a smaller hole where the product comes out. The cap is glossy black, plastic and kind of shaped like a rose.
Not convenient for travel, but I can live with that.
How I get the product out: Put the back of your hand flat against the opening. Flip the bottle upside down. I feel product on my hand. Flip bottle and hand rightside up. Remove hand. NEVER REMOVE YOUR HAND WHEN THE BOTTLE IS UPSIDE DOWN (that should be common sense). Anyway, there should be a small glob of foundation on the back of your hand. Use a brush or your fingers (I find using fingers will give a more sheer application, yet more even)
Or you can just pour a little out. Since I'm a klutz, I often end up spilling so I use the aforementioned method.
The finish is slightly dewy. I like to use Palgantong Make-up's Theatrical Powder as a finisher (it's another HG of mine)
Underneath, I use a plain lightweight moisturizer (if I remember), a TINY BIT of concealer on random spots, a tinted moisturizer, and a tinted BB cream.
After applying, usually with a brush, I pat my face with a makeup sponge and "warm" my face with my hands (I think the warming thing KINDA sets the foundation).
