Review by Hazelnuts
I tried a lot of foundations this year and the latest one that I have the pleasure to try is the Cosme Decorte The Powder Foundation. The brand promises a glowing, light finish that covers pores and imperfections.
I actually love the black, minimalistic design of the case. I feels very sleek and compact in the hand, and great to throw in your handbag for touch ups.
When I first opened it I was surprised to see shimmer which made me a bit concerned. Will this powder be too shimmery or glowy for me? I have combination skin so I do oil up often especially on my nose area and forehead, so I need to keep shine and highlight at a minimum.
I tried this powder with and without a primer. Either way, I am pleased with the results. Thankfully, the shimmer was undetectable as soon as I applied it on my skin. The powder has a fine, silky feel to it. It covers pores, fine lines and redness. The shade I have, no. 201, is on the bright yellow side but it has a touch of peach to it. It matches my skin tone very well, as you can see from the swatches.
For the finished look, I tried to see how the powder works in different lighting. This has got to be the most natural looking powder foundation I’ve tried. It does not look like I’m wearing a powdery mask of makeup. Instead, it looks like real skin, like I am naturally flawless. It works well on natural and indoor lighting. Even in photos my skin looks very natural. As the day goes on it gives more of a glow without being oily and wears beautifully. Note that the weather here is cooler now and less humid, and this powder did not make my skin feel dry at all.
Needless to say, I am impressed with this powder foundation and will be adding it to my current rotation of makeup. If you are the type who needs more coverage or want something that is more matte, then this may not work as well.
I am pretty happy with it as it gives me the coverage and glow that I need.
Review and Swatch by Cherry #302
AW2018, Cosme Decorte released new foundation, “The Powder Foundation” and “The Liquid Foundation” (they are the name pf products). They are quite welcomed in here.
Finally I got a sample of The Powder Foundation #302, the standard shade.
Please let me compare with The Liquid Foundation.
After I had set with the Complete Flat Primer, I applied these foundations.
The shade itself looks nothing big different in the picture above, and also in my eyes.
With blending, the shades are almost the same, both in the picture below and in my eyes.
Actually this #302 is the very my inner arm shade, not pretty easy to see the foundations :D. And seems The Liquid side looks more matte, and The Powder side looks more sheer, but it can be the difference of the nature of the liquid foundation and the powder foundation.
Anyway, in Cosme Decorte The Powder Foundation and the Liquid Foundation, the shades may be fitting in the numbers almost the perfectly.
With Excia and RMK
You know they are THE VERY Japanese standard shades, and THE VERY for mine 😀
#NA201 is a little bit pinkish, and I admit Excia foundations are a little bit pinkish. RMK Airy Powder Foundation is more yellow. Among these three foundations, this Cosme Decorte #302 is the very mine.
After the blending, can you see the difference? Probably no.
In my eyes, Excia is the most coverage among three, and also the most matte. RMK has quite small glitters (I never say it is bad), and sheer. This Cosme Decorte the Powder Foundation is middle of Excia and RMK.
The Coverage and Lasting
I think the coverage is sheer to middle. The finish is sheer. There are some powder foundations what emphasis my pores. Excia covered my pores, and RMK is not bad.
This Cosme Decorte covered well 🙂
The scent of this Cosme Decorte is much weaker than Excia.
This Cosme Decorte keep my face well moisturised, and I can not say it works in drier season or not now — still it is late Summer.
The lasting is better than I had expected, at least, it is much better than The Liquid Foundation.
