Hit Pan #5 L'egere Foundation
Name: L'Egere Double White O2 Essence-in Foundation
I watch and read a lot of fuzkittie's sharing. Her blog, youtube and facebook are my source for beauty product info and recommendation for quite a while. She's no longer 'active' on 'public' now - a loss but everyone make different decisions at different stage of life, right? This was one of her 'favourites' some time ago.
When I saw this in Watson's on sale, like 15% off, I picked this up. This is a Korean brand with other offerings such as BB Creams, Whitening skin care and such. On their displays, I sometimes see Korean and Taiwanese stars. Anyway, L'Egere is not too well-known locally. After a few months of uses, with heavy-hand brush and sponge attack, the Pan is exposed. I think it maybe of some reference value, so I'd talk a little bit about this here. :)
Despite it is a cream, it is quite hard and can be drying on the skin. I find it when I use this in the Winter, it can accentuate flaky skins - not flattering.
It blends into skin nicely with some effort, the finish is beautiful. However, I suggest setting it with some kind of powder or compact as it tends to settle into my dry fine lines. :S
This only comes in 1 shade, as in a lot of Korean BB creams or foundation do. I find this a good match to my complexion when I am paler.
You can see how it looks like in my previous inventory post. A neat and lovely purple compact. Plastic, handy and convenient. It has a divider to hold the sponge without touching the foundation.
Hence this is a wrong product for me. Colour suits me in the Winter, and texture suits me in the Summer. Why did I even hit pan of this? It's because it gives skin a really flawless and beautiful finish. Do I recommend this? Yes if you have quite normal to slightly oily skin AND pale colouring. Will I repurchase? No. I'm a little doubtful if I can finish this actually. LOL
Overall Rating - B.
