Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Foundation
As difficult as this is to admit, I’m a foundation snob.
I’ve tried foundations from a variety of brands, price ranges, and consistencies. It’s been a great disappointment because like Goldilocks musing over which bed to sleep in I’m looking for the one that’s just right.
In a previous review I told you about my love for Dior Capture Totale foundation and today I’m introducing you to my all time #1 favorite foundation, the Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Foundation.
This is a foundation that does not disappoint. It offers medium to full coverage, has a creamy consistency, imparts a subtle luminosity and feels better than any high grade moisturizer I’ve ever tried.
The Koh Gen Do foundation is formulated as a mineral cream foundation with 60% water giving you the coverage of a cream foundation and the finish of a liquid. Advanced technology (from Japan) also makes this a super hydrating formula that keeps your skin dewy and lasts for 10+ hours (I wore it for an entire day and hated to take it off!) due to the 6:3:1 ratio of water (60%), highly refined oils (30%) like Shea butter and jojoba and mineral powders (10%).
Koh Gen Do didn’t stop there because they also created this foundation with an ‘optical smoothing’ effect diffusing lines and imperfections – a terrific HD foundation. I can tell you the smooth finish and easy application of this foundation had me floored!
It is on the pricey side at $62 for 0.17 oz but a little goes a long way – even on days when I need extra coverage I still use very little to get a big result.
The shade ranges (12 total) from light to medium, shades that help correct redness and deep tones. I use shade 112 to help reduce redness and it works beautifully – I don’t need to color correct first and that saves me loads of time.
I’m giving this foundation my highest ranking of 5 smooches because it is my go-to, get me out of a skin issue jam foundation
What do you look for in a holy grail foundation?
PS. I purchased my foundation directly from Koh Gen Do. Their customer service is impeccable and they offer a reasonably priced starter kit should you want to give their line a try.
Deserted island worthy! My highest rating.
