Candy Doll Liquid Foundation and Mineral Powder

ALRIGHT o(≧▽≦)o, If you're my loyal reader (*slapped) you should know that I prefer medium coverage foundation than high coverage foundation. I always love natural finish even though the foundation can't covers all my flaws. I don't want my skin look like mask or wearing tons of foundation and powder. I would look so horrible under sun light @_@ and whatever light, lol. 

 So, I decided to buy Candy Doll foundation and powder last month to try. I still have my SANA foundation and loose powder >_<, but I wanted to try Candy doll so badly. Hahaha, so when I got money from my beloved ad I couldn't help it. Kekeke, ordered it without second thought.



Is Candy Doll really worth the money? (Sorry, this will be a long post xD)
First, let's talk about the packaging. 


Foundation ::
First impression of the overall packaging is KAWAII~~~ヽ(*≧ω≦)ノ  I love the pink-purple box so much~~ Japanese packaging always so interesting and unique!

The foundation bottle is really thin, it's made from a plastic not glasses like SANA foundation. I think it look cheap (゚ε゚ ), but the pink cap is make it look better. lol. The good part about plastic, you don't need to worry if they fall~! XD



I love how they put the font inside the vertical black stripes. The candy vector is super cute too~~!


Powder ::
Cute! But how they put the purple font over the white-black stripes is disturb me. LOL @_@ . The box is really interesting to open, hahahaha because it's really different from other powder packaging I had before. kekekek


I think the powder container is super small just like the foundation! Hahahaha, I wish it bigger (´Д`)! I love the material of this powder, it's not too plastic and not made from glasses so it doesn't heavy. 

I always accidentally drop things whenever I do my make up, but I don't need to worry about this. But, I still don't like that purple font over that black-white stripes (/゚Д゚)/, lol 


As you can see, it comes with a puff inside with ordinary black satin above it. Thanks the puff is soo soft and fluffy~ hohoho

They sealed the hole so the packaging won't become messy.

I personally think the shade is bit yellow  ( ̄へ ̄). I was a little worried before applied it on my face. I don't want my face look like orang sakit kuning (︶︹︺) .

Let's see the swatch on my hand first.

Foundation
✩ Liquid texture, not too thick and not too watery.
✩ I got shade 01 and I think it's a bit yellow for my skin.
✩ Easy to spread and blend.


Powder
✩ Small particles, really soft and smooth.
✩ Shade 01, same like the foundation. A bit yellow for my skin.

Now on my face, this my bare skin so you can see the before and after clearer. (right click+new tab, if you want to see it from closer).
Acne scars, acne, dark spots, big pores, etc. (I think my cam setting is too bright, lol) (;¬д¬)


I applied it only on my right side face. See the foundation is really bit yellow for me, hahhahah. I really love this foundation texture because it's not HEAVY and easy to blend with my fingers, hehehe.


The After-Before

After use the foundation, it covers my pores and scars really well. Makes my skin look smoother. It neutralize my red skin appearance. It has a soft matte result, so my skin isn't look shiny in the picture.

My before side is look shiny because I haven't put any foundation. Just skin care and SANA pore putty.

Please don't expect it can completely covers my scars because it won't (¬、¬). This foundation has medium coverage and natural finish.

After put foundation on both sides, I forgot to capture picture because I completely forgot. HAHA, I'm to busy dolled up my self that time, kekekek (`ー´). Don't worry, this is the after picture after make up. The picture size is more than 2000 pixels so open it in new tab if you want to see the result.

omg, I look so weird here, please bear with it. ( ゚ Д゚) 
I didn't edit my skin photos in this post. hahahhah check out by your self~ ( ꒪Д꒪)ノ

After make up, the foundation and powder is blended onto my skin. It matched my skin tone now after few minutes. Yeay~!
If you're wondering what circle lens and lipstick I use, I was using Princess Mimi Almond Brown and Revlon Lip butter in Sweet Tart (plus a lipgloss from Opera).

I was going to eat with my sister for 3 hours, ahahah yeah we always eat so slowly. I was sweating because korean food always HOT and SPICY, but not all of them ne~ I was afraid because whenever Im sweating, usually a new acne appear. wtf

I wiped my face from sweats and thought probably my make up is already washed-out. Lol

After went home, I was bring Happi for walk around. Poor him, it's been sometimes I didn't bring hime around for walk. He looked so happy~

And yeah, I was sweating again. Then I went to my room and looked at my skin in front of the mirror. Hurry captured it so I won't forget again, hahaha.


Lipstick is complety gone, face look a bit tired. Lol *lame (I think that because of my pale lips).

I think my skin is look fine, my make up wasnt completely gone. But yeah it looked a bit washed out, especially on my chin!
The foundation and powder stay quite well~ I didn't expect it would has a good staying power though. lol
