Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Aqua Foundation: 213

After seeing this on the Beautylish best seller list for a while and remembering that at one point this was the foundation of choice for many YouTubers, I took the $66 USD or $81 CAD plunge and splurged on the foundation.

The main reason why I haven’t been able to put this down since purchasing it is (1) the colour and undertone, which is perfectly light to medium olive shade to suit my very olive skin tone and (2) the finish: this is a moisturizing yet medium coverage foundation. Although i have relatively normal skin, I prefer moisturizing foundations but most of them are quite sheer whereas this maintains a medium coverage while not drying out my skin or emphasizing my lines.

Overall, this is beauty swatched approved however it is not a must have. For the price to be so steep, it’s nice but nothing I would panic without. A more affordable and quite frankly realistic price for a foundation is the L’Oreal Pro Glow. While the shade range and undertones are not a perfect match, I mix in a white foundation to custom colour match it to my skin.

Have you tried this?
