As I was and still am very impressed with DHC's Moisture Care Liquid Q10 Foundation I decided to try out their Rose Beauty Gel Foundation Q10 which looked interesting enough to give it a try.
I also liked the Rose Beauty Lip Care Balm I found in the same eBay store so I added it to my order.
-Rose Beauty Gel Foundation Q10 SPF30 PA+++:
This comes in a very adorable light pink 30g jar with a rose-shaped cover.
The jar comes in a clear plastic box with an extra spatula packed together with the foundation.
The foundation is a very lightweight smooth gel with a soft light rose scent.
It contains Q10, natural olive essence oil, Bulgarian Rose and "clear rose pigment" (to cover pores, fine lines and dullness).
The foundation comes in 3 colors only but it's sheer-medium so one of the 3 colors will probably adjust to your skin tone.
I picked O-00, the lightest color, which looks terribly dark in the pot.
At first I hesitated trying the foundation out as it looked so dark that it wouldn't fit with my skin color for sure. It's really odd but it blends in perfectly. I have no idea how the Japanese manage to give that effect but it really works!
As I said it offers sheer-medium coverage, applied with my 187 brush it's a nearly flawless finish that needs very little concealer and just a little powder to set the foundation. Since the Moisture Care Liquid Foundation gives more coverage I still prefer this over the Rose Beauty Gel though.
The foundation is definitely moisturizing and leaves a soft dewy finish. This offers an SPF of 30 PA+++.
Retails for 1680 Yen, I paid US$22 (+shipping) from Alpha Beauty Store.
-Rose Beauty Lip Care Balm:
The lip care comes in a pretty rose-shaped jar. The balm is a yellow thick hard balm that takes a bit rubbing to get any product on your finger.
The balm has a light rose scent and is moisturizing but doesn't feel heavy. However it's not the best balm I tried, I still prefer more emollient smooth balms that I can slather on.
I paid US$10.95 plus shipping for this.
