Kate Tokyo The Base Zero Secret Skin Maker Zero Powder Foundation Review





It has always been Asian-made base makeup that I find works for my skin to achieve that smooth, flawless and inner-glow!  When my favorite base makeup brand Paul & Joe left the country *sniff* I knew I had to look for alternatives and surprisingly, I found it in Kate Tokyo.  

Giving you a bit of my secret, I use Kate Mineral Powder Foundation as my final step when I do Bridal makeup.  It gives the instant glow without the "cement look".  


When Kate Tokyo recently launched their The Base Zero line, I immediately tested their Secret Skin Maker Zero Powder Foundation even if it is meant for Oil Control (not for my dry skin)

Pros

  • Simple yet nice packaging.
  • Lightweight.  Easy-to-use.
  • Come with sponge that is made of good quality.
  • Can help control oil but does not dry out my dry skin.  
  • Mattifies yet the effect is natural.
  • Light to medium coverage.

Cons

  • Very oily skin may still need retouch especially on key areas like T-zone, sides of the nose.  

Overall
A very natural-looking powder foundation that covers certain redness and dark spots.  Non-drying yet helps control oil at a certain extent.

Tips

  • Use brush for lighter and more natural coverage.
  • If you need more coverage, use the sponge that comes with the product.
  • Use dabbing motion on areas that needed more coverage than usual.
  • Use foundation underneath for better coverage if you are aiming for full-coverage.
  • If you have dry skin like I do, better use a brush in application to prevent too much friction from rubbing the sponge on skin, this may create flaky skin.

Will I repurchase?
Yes.

To whom do I recommend this to?
Users who have normal, combination and oily skin.

Where to purchase and how much?
At Kate Tokyo booths priced at Php700.00.

Packaging
A bit longer than most powders we are used to.  This is rectangular with soft edges.

Swatch: 03 
A subtle yellow undertone powder perfect for girls with fair skin and warm undertone.

For the purpose of photo.  I used the sponge and applied heavily on dry skin (no moisturizer, no primer).  What I like about this foundation is that it adheres to the skin, and no matter how many layers I apply, the effect will always be natural and I look like I'm not wearing any makeup at all.

Before and After
As you can see, it seems like my skin is still peeking through but the skin on the after photo looks more even and redness were reduced.
