Kate Powderless Liquid for Cover Swatches


The Powderless Liquid for Cover foundation is part of Kate's Fall 2012 Collection. I really like that the bottle is plastic and comes with a pump, making it travel friendly. This foundation is available in 6 shades, comes with an SPF of 20, and retails for ¥2,100 ($26.79). 

 From left to right: BR-C, OC-B, OC-C, BE-C, OC-D, OC-G.

Below is a photo of me wearing the Powderless foundation. 

The shine on my face is actually me beginning to sweat...Just thought I'd share that with you :D  

Products used:
Face:
Kate Powderless Liquid for Cover in OC-D (for reference, I'm NC25-30 in MAC).
Eyes:
Nothing.
Lips:
John Masters Organics Lip Calm.

The Powderless Liquid for Cover foundation applies well, is streak-free, and gives the skin a natural (if that's possible) semi-matte finish. I found the coverage to be light to medium (you can build up the coverage). Since the foundation contains an SPF, there is a slight, white overcast on the face when using flash photography. Ironically, the shade that matched me perfectly was OC-D...you just have to laugh :P My only issue with this foundation is that I did find it a little drying on my forehead (I have normal to dry skin). Oily skin types will enjoy this foundation as well as those who are looking to skip the step of powdering their face.

What foundation have you tried recently?

Looking gorgeous one lipstick at a time.

  1. Not sweating, glowing!
    My mother must've told me a million times while growing up. Women don't sweat, horses sweat! Men perspire & women simply glow! Haha she should see me in the gym some days with all that 'glow' pouring of my face:)

  3. ALWAYS looking gorgeous! Going by your swatches I'd be OC-D too:)
    But yay, I think I can happily skip these. They look a bit too dry/matte for my skin & with winter around the corner, I really don't need that white overcast.

    1. Thank you doll! I'm sure you're OC-D as well :P

      I agree with you on this foundation looking too dry/matter during the colder seasons. My skin gets drier during Winter, and I can see this foundation will emphasize that dryness.

  4. looks fabulous on you this foundation! Perfect matte skin without looking powdery. I think I might try this one. OC-D might be my colour as well, I'm, NW20 but the other swatches look all so pale. Great review and looking gorgeous as always :-)
