Albion Excia Al Superior Foundation was one of the most often ordered foundations. In Sep of 2014, Albion released new formula; Albion Excia AL Superior Cream Foundation. Even we had pre-orders of this product.
One of the girls behind Cherry loved previous formula. She obtained new formula, and she allowed me (Cherry) to try it. The color is Japanese standard color, #NA201. If you are Japanese/ Chinese / Korean, my recommend is trying this first.
Review and Swatch
As the same as last formula, Albion recommends to use primers, but she told me that she is using without primers.
Let me share with you my personal review of this product.
Applying this foundation on my arm, I felt this is not pretty hard as last formula. The perfume is the same with previous formula, it is near to Excia AL’s skin care line. Some love this perfume, but not pretty much attractive for me.
It is pretty easy to set on my skin. Nice.
See, harder cream was melting on my arm. It is NA201, a standard color for Japanese, but it is a little bit pinkish for my arm, as the last formula.
See, how it covers my uneven skin torn and freckles pretty well. If you want to wear foundations as light texture and naturally glow, this may be too thick for you. If you want to make your face perfectly flawless, this is attractive for you.
For my arm, with less skin trouble, I have to admit this is too “moist”, but on the other hand, on my face, so dry, the balance of oil and water is a little bit oilier, I felt. This product is for all season, but if you are oily, this is not for you.
I had mentioned as “Sometimes my makeup comes off easily, but there are less problem with this foundation.” for the last formula. Honestly to say, in this formula, I felt it was easier to coming off.
As of Nov 2015, my skin condition is bad, and there are some freckles and problems, but it is well covered. Probably, this is a full coverage foundation, I shall describe.
It is really really thin layer because the quantity of a sample what I had 🙂 I guess the coverage is quite good.I put a pointer the red circle, and you can see how it covers. My pores are gone, and really natural finish, there are no artificial radiant effect, just natural. #NA201 is the very my shade, and I guess to cover my problems more better, I should choose #NA211.
Totally to say, this foundation is not affordable price, but I DON’T know there are any foundations beats this foundation. Are there any such light texture, but quite good coverage and make my skin condition naturally beautiful more than this Albion Excia Al Superior Cream Foundation? So far, I have not find.
You may see I am trying quite many foundations for test to for you, as I had tried, so far, this foundation is the BEST as the full coverage foundation.
If you are an Ansian, #NA201 is my recommend
They are ordering #OC101 often those who our customers with Chinese name. #OC101 is one of the most lightest colors.
Frankly to say, I felt it is odd. I went to HK, and found one of the friends of mine are using such full coverage foundations (she is using SUQQU Cream Foundation), as concealer with naked face. That’s making sense. Not only SUQQU but also this foundation will work for concealer too, yet too expensive and too much quantity isn’t it??
If you want to use this as the foundation, as this product is designed, my recommend is #NA201. #0C101 is sometimes too pale than your neck, and I often see those ladies in Hong Kong, Taiwan, and South Korea, yes, especially in South Korea, it is wired as Japanese eyes.
But you can choose as you your favorite shade 🙂
