Review - KOH GEN DO Aqua Foundation(012), and KOH GEN DO Make Up Sponge

3:29:00 AM

I got it in PK-0 (or 012) and it's the lightest one. KOH GEN DO aqua foundation is very thin,and never gives you a heavy makeup look. It will only offer you a natural and luminous finish. Base on that, It cannot offer enough converge on your face, and you need to cover certain areas with the concealer before you use it. Generally, it is a great foundation!

KOH GEN DO Make Up Sponge
Since this aqua foundation is thin and I highly recommend you use its sponge to distribute its foundation. The sponge is pretty thick, soft and blend makeup evenly.

What it is:
A makeup sponge made of dense synthetic rubber to perfectly apply and finish your makeup.

What it does:
Koh Gen Do developed this sponge to press and evenly distribute each layer of your makeup, covering all angles of fine lines, pores, and uneven surfaces. The five-sided design allows for maximum usage of corners and angles. It works beautifully with wet or dry product application, and helps to achieve that important step for flawless diffusion, especially for Koh Gen Do's mineral powders that optically smooth the surface of skin.

What else you need to know:
Tip: When applying liquid and cream products, spray and moisten the sponge prior to use with Koh Gen Do Oriental Plants Lotion Spray so the applied foundation and primers will be pressed into the skin and not unnecessarily lifted. Note that moistening the sponge with plain water will dry the surface of your skin.
