DHC Platinum White Lasting White Color Base & Cream Foundation

While browsing one of my favorite eBay stores where I like to pick up skin care, body stuff and sometimes makeup I stumled across some interesting makeup from DHC. I actually visited his shop because I wanted to order one of my beloved Q10 Eye Treatment Concealer in Light Beige (I reviewed it here on my blog and used it up on my trip to Egypt!)
Anyways, back to the stuff I spotted =) The whitening makeup series from DHC contains platinum which sounded pretty interesting thus worth trying out.

I purchased the Lasting White Color Base SPF35 PA++ in Ivory and the Lasting White Cream Foundation SP37 PA+++ in OC-00.

The Color Base comes in 5 colors out of which I picked the ivory one. The others are pink, shiny beige, natural beige and cool green.
It comes in a bottle with a strangely shaped cap and you need to shake it before application.

The base is a lightweight milky emulsion with a pale yellowish beige light tint so it evens out my skin a little. I find it creates a smooth canvas for the foundation, too.

This has a relatively strong chemical smell in my opinion which annoys me a little.

All in all a good base but not super special in my opinion. Priced somewhere around US$15 for (only!) 25ml.

The Cream Foundation comes in a simple squeeze tube containing 30g. There are 6 colors of which I picked the one I assumed to be the lightest one (OC-00). I had relatively good luck with DHC foundations so far so I thought it would fit.

The foundation has a really nice creamy texture and goes on smoothly without looking blotchy. The coverage is quite good, about medium I'd say and the finish is slightly dewy.

Sounds great but it has one big problem: the color is waaaaaaaaay too yellow and about 2 shades too dark. Really a pity!
(If anyone is interested email me, I'd let this go for US$14 incl. shipping, tested only 1x).
I paid about US$22 for this +shipping.

All in all a bit of a disappointment as I really like the texture and finish of the foundation but just won't find a color suitable for me!
