KATE Mineral Liquid Foundation (Review)

Few months ago, I won this Liquid foundation thru Cosmopolitan Singapore Facebook page giveaway. (They ran a series of products giveaway from various brands almost everyday back in March). I won the KATE Mineral Liquid foundation in shade OC-C (this is the common shade)

I can't find the ingredients list in english for this product.



Swatches in various lighting...
This shade OC-C was like about 1 to 2 shades darker then my usual foundation shade... but on my face, it wasn't that dark (just made me look abit warm).
For your info:::
My face is way darker then my whole body... so I need a brighter foundation to even out everything. I have KATE Lasting cover liquid foundation in BR-C.. the shade match me really well!


Here's the side by side comparison of the shades.


Half face... on strong day lighting, the shade doesn't look soo obvious.. but it does cover and even out all the uneven complexion.

When the foundation set.. my face does look abit warm (tired).
(it's not the foundation fault, I just need the "right" shade- lolx)
Anyway, put the shade aside... and focus on how I feel about the foundation after using it for a couple of weeks.
  • The foundation shade is buildable from sheer to light medium coverage
  • Foundation feel pretty moist/watery, easy to spread around the face.
  • Feels like a bbcream texture
  • Doesn't feel too heavy nor cakey on the skin
  • Pretty Lightweight
  • Last a good 5-8hrs depend on the weather conditions. (If I stay indoor- it can last up to 8hrs)
  • Doesn't cause any irritation
  • Doesn't cause any break-out during the time I use this foundation.
  • it has a semi matte finishing
  • oil control was pretty average
Side note:
My skin has become more and more better... skin doesn't feel dry nor tight
(but do look abit dry after applying foundation)
I'm back to mild oily combination skin ^__^
My nose and forehead will start to (shine) after afew hours...


I dont look much different under bright day lighting.
