Why is it that every time we try to shop for a foundation with good coverage, everything has a matte finish? Matte can be great when the occasion calls for it, but we’re really digging the glass skin trend right now, especially heading into fall. Are there really no dewy finish foundations with decent coverage out there?
Let’s not give up so easily, especially not with this celeb-favorite foundation right in front of our face, flaunting a 25%-off price tag in the 2019 Dermstore Anniversary Sale! Have we truly, finally found a dewy foundation worth our time? Well, considering Olivia Culpo and Lindsay Lohan use it and have been glowing like no other, the answer’s looking like a resounding “yes!”
Culpo, a former Miss Universe, included this Maifanshi Aqua Foundation in her top beauty picks when talking to Well and Good: “Koh Gen Do is amazing because it’s so moisturizing. I also like to combine their foundation with their Aqua Foundation Illuminator and that’s like my favorite combination ever.”
Meanwhile, Lohan’s makeup artist, Rob Scheppy, told Refinery29 that this foundation is key to the actress’ honey-like complexion: “I like Koh Gen Do’s Aqua Foundation. It isn’t heavy and leaves the skin dewy, so you can still see the gorgeous skin underneath.” That explains why Lohan’s skin looks amazing, but we can still spot her famous freckles!
Shoppers say this long-wearing liquid foundation “stays dewy and fresh all day long.” One said it was “truly unparalleled,” before gushing even further, noting how it “has a gorgeous luminosity to it, and best of all, it truly feels weightless.” Another mentioned how it “never makes [them] look cakey or clogs [their] pores,” while others commented on the “beautiful natural finish!”
Koh Gen Do formulated this sweat- and oil-resistant foundation to be “reflective of a post-glow after a facial treatment.” It contains clean, natural ingredients, including nourishing minerals from the deep waters of Bretagne, France. Oui, s’il vous plaît!
This foundation also contains gloss film powder, which may help it adhere to skin for better coverage, and T3 oil, a blend of jojoba oil, olive squalene and shea butter to leave skin feeling hydrated and soft. Some matte foundations leave our face dry and ready to crack at any moment, so we are seriously loving this!
To use this Aqua foundation, start off by priming, and then apply in sheer, buildable layers, using hands, a sponge or a brush — whichever we prefer! Pat the foundation into the skin at all angles to create a blurring effect. Need more coverage? Let the first layer set and then apply another! Finish up by setting with either powder or a setting spray. Voila! Dewy perfection!
This foundation is currently available in seven shades. It’s made with no artificial fragrances or colors, so those with sensitive skin can rejoice. Glass skin is just a few swipes away!
