I have been using this foundation for at least 5 years now and im probably on my 6-7th bottle already! Love this. I am using NB21 the lightest shade. It gives me very good coverage, comes out not too matte. It lasts me long enough throughout the day, altho i do quick touchups with the powder version mid day. Its so hard to find the powder version in NB21 though, i think they mightve discontinued it already (bummer :( ). Anyways, this does not cause me any breakouts. And the slight yellowish tinge is great in covering up the occasional redness. And i love that it comes in a bottle with a pump! I will continue to repurchase. ;)

I bought this for less than SGD30 in shade NB23 as recommended by the retail associate. First, i would like to say that I have acne (not just a few outbreaks but many all over my cheeks) and I was on the lookout for affordable, full coverage foundation. I asked for a full coverage foundation and this was the one she recommended despite the Power Perfection BB cream being the best selling product of this brand. This could be applied with your fingers as I usually prefer but I decided to try a sponge and I found it easier to apply because there was better control somehow. I live in a tropical country and I was out all day when the weather was humid and this stayed on really well. I applied 2 pumps (I love that it comes in a pump bottle because it is hygienic and controls the amount you dispense better) and patted it all over using the sponge. The lady told me to pat it ONLY without trying to spread it for better coverage. Next I applied concealer and some powder and I was all ready to go. It didn't really cover my scars that well because I don't think I used enough foundation. The 2 pumps dispensed were really little. It did cover the redness of my existing acne and it looked natural on my skin. My skin stayed matte all through the day.

This is created by a Korean cosmetics chain and I expected it to suit my asian skin well (I got the lightest shade No.21). Unfortunately, it was amazingly too yellow/orange for me and their shade of No.21 is significantly more darker than No.21 by Missha. The makeup itself gives sheer to medium coverage...once you get it settled. This foundation slides all over the skin as you try to apply it! I use fingers and it has this foundation goes on rather uniquely in my opinion. I can kind of push it around my skin but it doesn't leave behind as much colour as other foundations do. It's like I'm wiping away foundation if I go over an area with small streaks left behind. Nonetheless, I managed to get it on finally but the cover wasn't great. I then went to classes. This got oily VERY quickly (it actually looked oily when I put it on). Now that I've listed all the con's, I'll list the few pro's which stop me from throwing this out:
- Despite being a tad too yellow for me, it still isn't as obvious and some other foundations that I can get from Western brands.
- Coverage is easily buildable and I suppose the fact you can push it around easily makes it easy to blend in.
- Less worrying ingredients than Missha.
- Zero break outs, redness, problems with pores, etc. It actually is a very good foundation in the sense of not irritating my sensitive skin. Didn't clog pores at all too.

Maybe someone else can find more love in this product if its a closer match to their skin and if they've mastered how to get makeup cleanly on with a brush without streaking. Probably would work very well for less oily skin too.

I love love this product. Some women may not like this because they have very limited shades but as for me, I love how the NB23 matches my complexion because I have a tan to medium tone. The coverage is actually quite thick because it can cover uneven skin tones and slightly dark spots. If I want a lighter coverage, a pea size is already enough since a little product goes a long way. The product is easy to blend whether using a finger or a brush. I use this as an everyday foundation because it last a whole day without any touch ups. It doesn't cake on me or even melt easily considering I live in a tropical country. It has green tea extract and spf 20 which is another thing to like about it. I never experienced any break outs or any allergies with this maybe because of the green tea extract. As for the packaging, I love the fact that it has pump because it can control the amount of product easily and it doesn't cause a mess.
