For some reason I am always keen to try out foundations - always on the hunt for THE perfect match for my annoyingly pale skin. I have quite a few foundations that match me almost perfectly but who knows, there might be the miracle foundation out there!
My latest acquisition is the Creamy Foundation from RMK in #201. This is one of the first times I actually decided on a pink-undertoned foundation which is something hard to find in Japanese brands (at least in a pale color...darker pink-toned ones are available there without a problem). The RMK foundation colors starting with "2" are the pink-toned ones whereas the "1" foundations have light yellow undertones.
The Creamy Foundation comes in a heavy cube-shaped glass jar with a spatula provided for hygienic use.
The texture is a soft cream which is not too emollient for my taste. The coverage is about sheer-medium I'd say. I prefer medium-full coverage but the RMK is ok in that department. The finish is slightly dewy but not greasy or oily.
Still I don't think that I like this foundation. First let me tell you that the color #201 looks exactly like my skin when applied first. That might sound great....
But I have one major problem which ruins the foundation for me more or less: It oxidizes. After 5 minutes the foundation turns noticeably darker and more orange.
Also, in combination with powder and/or concealer (I tried several ones I should add) the foundation gets a bit blotchy and has the tendency to clump up in certain areas of my face.
I thought that a makeup-artist-brand like RMK would offer great foundations but honestly I am not terribly impressed with the Creamy Foundation.
So my major pet-peeves are:
-Coverage too sheer
-gets uneven in combination with powder or concealer
The best foundation out there still is Maquillage's Climax Moisture Gel Foundation in OC-00 which provides great coverage, an excellent color match and a flawless and even finish.
