Banila Co Secret No. V Shaping Foundation SPF20 PA++

Finally I was able to lay my hands on the newest foundation from Banila Co. You might remember that I already had ordered it a while back but instead got The Secret Foundation which didn't impress me in the slightest.
The Secret No. V Shaping Foundation SPF20 PA++ is supposed to lift your skin and give your face more definition (supposed to bring out your face's V shape).
The foundation comes in a small brown pump bottle, contains 30ml and costs 18000 Won (I paid US$22.50 from rumistyle on eBay which is not a bad mark-up!).

Unfortunately the foundation doesn't work for me. Oompa Loompa, go figure! Even though it's very lightweight and feels very moisturizing and silky it just fails for me as the color is totally off. It's sheer but still manages to turn my face into a bright pumpkin (Happy Halloween to everyone!). Not a pretty look =(
I chose color #01 Light Beige.

I am done with Banila Co foundations. They just don't work for me. Period.
A pity as the texture is really nice (btw after wearing it just once I can't tell you if it would lift, strech, define or shape my face) =)

Swatch on my hand (which is about 2 shades darker than my face):
