I (Cherry) got a sample of Impress Granmula Foundation #OC-C, seems this is the very their standard color for Japanese.
Let me show you my review and comparison with Albion Excia AL Superior Cream Foundation.
The texture is a little bit heavier than Albion for me. Its coverage is full, and the finish is a little bit glow, I felt. It is sad that it emphasis my pore.
In this time, I did not applied any of primers. When I use this, I should better to use something primers what covers my pore 🙁
Comparison with Albion Excia AL Superior Cream Foundation
The day before I applied Granmula on my face, I used Superior Cream.
Which covers well?
I feel Granmula is better than Superior Cream on the point of covering uneven skin torn. But if you have a rough skin or lots of pores, I feel Superior Cream covers more than Granmula.
Difference of the finish
Excia AL #NA201 and Granmula OC-C are standard for Japanese, but for me, #NA201 is a little bit pinkish, and #OC-C is Ochre.
I like Superior Cream is light. Granmula is not pretty much heavy, a little bit oilier, I feel.
Both are with perfume, and Superior Cream is with something stronger oriental herbal, and Granmula is floral. I prefer Granmula’s, because it is not strong, yet both are not what I wanna have, sadly.
There is a customer who asked us to do custom order this foundation, she also ordered us Albion Excia AL Superior Cream Foundation. She told us that Granmula is better than Superior Cream.
As I had mentioned, the day before I applied Granmula on my face, I used Superior Cream. But I can not compare with them, because of the sample quantity I had (I took lots of shade comparison in this summer, and that one I had :D), I could not use it whole of my face. After I took that photo, I applied other foundations :D.
Let me back to the Granmula. On the evening, I found my nose is really really extremely oily. But on my cheeks, it lasts well. It was just a warm “Indian Summer”, and I did not sport.
