This is currently my everyday go-to foundation. Background on me: I have pale, dry, acne-prone, supersensitive rosacean skin that gets flaky in the Winter. I tried this foundation after hearing that a celebrity (can't remember which one) is loyal to it because it doesn't irritate her dry, sensitive skin. I also have had great luck with another KGD product, the All-in-One moisture Spa Gel (see separate review for that one). Here's why I love this gorgeous product:- The creamy texture is perfect for dry flaky skin- The finish is natural - not matte, not dewy, just skin-like satin- The shade 112 is an almost-perfect match for my N/NC10 - it is slightly too cool for me but oxidizes throughout the day to become a perfect match. (The manufacturer shade notes say that 112 is supposed to be warm but it is definitely cool when first applied.)- A little goes a long way - this is very pigmented and spreads beautifully so you don't need to use much (good thing considering the insane price - see comment below). Coverage is medium but I have to use concealer to cover scars/pigmentation.- This does not cause breakouts or rosacea flares, and is removed easily with my REN cream cleanser + muslin washclothThe negatives are minimal:- Cost: For a high price ($70 USD), you get a tiny amount (.71 oz/20 grams) - Availability: This product is getting harder to find - Sephora has stopped carrying it though it is not discontinued by KGD (I get it on Dermstore or Beautylish during sales)- Oxidation: As mentioned above, it does oxidize so the shade is warmer at the end of the day than at the beginning. I can see why this would bug people (but for me it's not an issue).Overall I highly recommend this for anyone with sensitive skin who isn't on a super-tight budget.

Skin background and shade: I'm pale, NC-15, Cover fx N10, very neutral to cool leaning. My main skin concerns are dryness, hyperpigmentation from acne marks and some scarring. I love a sheer to medium coverage foundation that just blurs out my flaws. I use 012 cool for a perfect match. ReviewI've always heard about Koh Gen Do but never really looked into it until I saw it in the Beauty Report Magazine October Edition. I love hearing about makeup used for television and movies, like armani luminous silk, and I started seeing it pop up EVERYWHERE. Seeing that it was used on Jessica Jones Season 2 was the final straw. I purchased off of Dermstore for a 15% discount in auto refill from. I looked up some shade matches and heard that 012 was the best for NC-15 shades. To be honest this is even better than that shade. It just matches so perfectly. In comparison I thought Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua was a good match- compared to my Koh it's too pink! The bottle itself, or the tube I should say, it really well designed to only let out a little at a time from the tip. I usually just end up scribbling it on my face straight from the tube rather than waste any on my hand or anything. The foundation itself is incredibly light but it has the feeling of Armani Face Fabric- a real silicone heavy primer like feel- that throws me off a little. Its sheer to light but manages to at least blur my flaws. When I wear it people think I just have pretty good skin with a nice glow. There's never that : " Your makeup looks good," its " Your skin looks good today!" Theres also no smell that I can discern. Another comparison I'll make is the Chanel Les Beiges tinted base. At this point that stuff feels heavy on my skin compared to Koh Gen Do which is suprising. The scent also drives me a bit nuts. The longevity on this is also out of this world. Most light weight foundations disappear on me even though I have dry skin. This holds up the entire day no problem. When I get home at 8pm, after applying it at 730 am, it looks just like skin. I'll continue to rebuy and I just purchased the Aqua as well.

Incredible foundation. It's really not that moisturizing. At least, not nearly as much as one would think given its name. Coverage is incredible. I seem to get a lot of compliments on my skin when I wear it. People think it's my skin. No heavy scent (love), no skin reactions (really love) and easy to remove. The shade range is excellent. I wear the lightest shade 001. Although I am not that fair I prefer to add blush and bronzer and let my skin seem bright underneath. It's not cheap but what is these days? As I "age" my likes of foundation are more skin like, soft, needs to blur my pores and give decent coverage without being cakey. Wear time is all day ++. And that includes my skin care underneath which is a collection of serums and a somewhat thick'ish Sunscreen (Obaji Matte Sun.) This checks all the boxes for my current needs and wants and if Kate Bosworth approves...sign me up. I can see why it's an MUA fav.

I`ve been using the Aqua version of this for years, but this is the first time I`ve tried this Moisture version of it. I`ve hesitated to buy this because the amount of product seemed relatively small in relation to the price. Also, I didn`t think I had a skin type that warranted a foundation targeting dry skin. However, at this time of year I usually get away for two months and spend the coldest months of the year somewhere tropical, so I`ve never really experienced a full on winter until now. My skin has been dry and reactive (irritated and breaking out), so in a bout of desperation I decided to reach out for my trusty Koh Gen Do. The Aqua version never clogs my pores and helps my skin heal, but is too dry for winter, so I decided to check out the moisture version. First off, I love how easy it is to apply, just with fingers. It blends easily and color corrects really well. Surprisingly I use a small amount, just on the center of my face and it looks really natural. Coverage is pretty light, but I cover up under the eyes with Sisley`s Phyto Concealer and any blemishes get taken care of with Catrice Camouflage. So I use a really small amount of product to achieve the look I want. It doesn`t sit in lines and doesn`t emphasize texture or pores. It wears well, except for my nose, but then nothing lasts on my nose when it`s constantly runny and is wiped. Touch ups are easy: just toss the tube in my bag and use fingers to blend. Not that touch ups are much needed: for a moisturizing base, it really lasts. I would totally repurchase.

My Favorite Foundation Ever: But Read My Combo Formula. I like it very much on it's own. Then I mixed it with 2 things and BOOM I got the BOMB! My formula makes it perform better, and brings the cost down a lot. Here it is:1. A pea of this KGD in Shade 002.2. An even larger pea of "It Cosmetics" Your Skin But Better CC Cream SPF 50 in the Color "Light".3. One drop of Josie Maran Argan Oil (Wayne Goss video recommendation)I finger mix the 3 with no great precision. I apply on clean, dry skin with no primer necessary, placing it with my fingers in mini blob-streaks. I wet and squeeze the Beauty Blender with a final towel light squeeze. I quickly and non-expertly move it or "bounce + twist" across my face, including much of my undereye area. Done. I add Chanel concealer or this KGD twist click brightener that is SO much better than YSL or others. To finish I use 1 of 3 things: 1. Guerlain BLUSH (Rose Aux Joues) in 01 Morning Rose and am a bit careful with "where" as it is a light pink. It works fantastic! I am a level 2, or 20 Cool. I still use a blush next. 2. The KGD powder foundation in my tone. 3. The KGD clear loose powder which can be your solo choice, or even a bit put atop the other options. I did not think I would like this one bit, but it's "hot-damned" great at leaving a gorgeous finish. Mind you: All of this is done in thin layers. It is a light feeling outcome where your pores feel the air. It lasts, looks no make-up but perfect skin, and took me 52 years of experimenting with "everything" to find. It is a "medium coverage" outcome with some sheer beauty. I gave up on full coverage long ago as "rubberized face" was never a better look for me than "highly improved face". I want a touchable face with the caveat that no one actually touches it!

I have 60 plus year old dry and sensitive skin. I'm a fan of more radiant and moisture providing foundations. I do usually have to powder my nose during the day as it tends to show shine fairly quickly if I don't. My coloring is NW15-20. Some of my other favorite foundations are Estée Lauder ReNutriv cream in Ecru 1N2 and Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk in 4.75 For a great tinted moisturizer, I also like NARS in Finland. I first purchased this Koh Gen Do foundation with the sample packs to get the best match. For me, it is 002. With all the reviews and the "moisture" in the label, I figured this would go on more wet or oily. I found it to be a more powdery type cream. It smoothes nicely with the finger tips and seems to dry down and set quickly. On my skin it leaves a semi-matte finish with no glow. It's not totally flat but pretty close. It does look like skin though and doesn't look dry like some foundations do. I find that I use my fingers for the best finish. A brush or sponge seems to take off the foundation, whereas my fingertips push it into my skin. For me this foundation is long lasting through a full work day. What I really like is that my skin feels as moisturized at the end of the day as is does right after I put my foundation on. I find that the coverage is light and somewhat sheer. The amount you get in the little tube makes this foundation pretty expensive but not more so than my other favorites ReNutriv or GA Crema Nuda. However, I do like the tube with no pump. It makes it easy to not waste and just get the small amount you need. A little bit is all I need. This is a nice foundation but I still like my Estée Lauder ReNutriv cream foundation better. It has a more radiant finish and smooths over any pores and textured skin leaving them looking blurred. It also provides more of a medium finish that still looks natural.

My sister ordered me this foundation for my birthday, and I have long been wanting to try it out. I've been using it a few weeks now and I am in love. It provides sheer to medium buildable coverage and looks like lovely, glowing skin when I have it on. It wears really well and hasn't broken me out. When I want more coverage and a more matte finish, I layer this over the Tarte BB primer, this combo gives me perfect matte glowing skin with a natural finish. I only wish it were cheaper, as it is as of now HG material.

For the upcoming cold season, I'm looking for a foundation that is a bit moisturizing with a dewy finish. I was previously using GA's Luminous Silk (which I still love) but I find that it doesn't last very long and doesn't provide enough coverage for basic redness. I bought samples of this from their website - it's super cheap and allows you to try all shades before committing to such an expensive foundation. This foundation fulfills all my wishes for a winter foundation.The shades are not, I repeat, they ARE NOT the same shades as its Aqua Foundation counterpart, so be attentive. I have tried Aqua and while it's lovely as a foundation, it tends to cater to skin tones NC25 or lighter, or NC35-40, nothing in between. I am an NC30 and shade 123 in Aqua is a shade too light (NC25), while 143 was a shade too dark (NC35-40). Shade 123 in the Moisture Foundation is a *perfect* match for NC30 skin tones. For comparison, I wear GA Luminous Silk 5.75, UD Naked Skin 4.0, Loreal True Match Lumi W3, and Dermablend Smooth Liquid Camo in Camel. My Sephora color IQ is 3y06 (or any 06 for that matter, since I'm neutral). Shade 123 in Moisture Foundation is 2y07 in coloriq, but trust me, it's a great match.The consistency is a little thick, and while it's off-putting that a full tube is less than 1 oz for 60+ bucks, a little goes a very, very long way. I can't imagine using a sponge or even a brush for this foundation since it would be so wasteful. I just use my fingers and the consistency of the foundation is such that it blends really really well. It's basically a highly pigmented tinted moisturizer. It lasts all day. Without even setting. To me, for a light-med coverage foundation, that's quite amazing. I gave only two lippies for the packaging because it looks so cheap. There are drugstore foundations that look more expensive than this awful-looking tube. But it's the inside the counts, folks! Highly recommended if you have dry-ish skin. I'm not sure how well this will work in warmer months, but we will see, as I have purchased the full-size from my experience with the samples.

My favourite foundation.After using it for about an month i can say now that this is a keeper.For reference my skin is very sensitive dry reddish cheeks which is prone to clogged pores. I was looking for something that is not too heavy for my skin so it can be used for everyday.I moisturize my face before using thisfoundation. I def have to say if u are looking for something that covers blemishes and heavy acne or dark circles this one is not for you.This works only for skin that need light coverage and dry sensitive skin. it gives you a healthy look, not matte but neither dewy, its just your skin but better. You can build it to a light medium coverage- but you will have to use a lot.I agree with the girls here saying that after you remove the foundation your skin is still hydrated. I dont break out from this which is fantastic.this foundation is in my opinion expensive and too hard to get.I am an NC 23-25 and bought it in shade 113 which is a good match.Ingredients wise this foundation is just nice.I will def buy it again.

Helps moisturize, although I use another moisturizer underneath as well :) In love with the packaging. In my opinion, this is so much better than a pump!! If you are looking for maximal coverage, this product isn't your best bet. If you just need light coverage and to get some moisture in the skin, give this a go!
