I did not put any primer just the foundation

over all: 75/100
This is an ok foundation. Not hard to use, but I wont use it every day. It has a super light wight, and it does feel like the MAC cool liquid powder (when you apply it on, you can feel it cold and liquidy).  It is not hard to find your matching color because all the colors are kinda similar.  Can not keep the hydration for all day, for me it is around 6 hrs. I like the simmer in the foundation. It has a cute brush come with it, I tried to use it but it did not work at all. I feel like this kind of aqua, cool, whatever you want to call it powder need a bigger powder brush to apply. I tried to use a flat powder brush to apply this. It works very well. It has a really poor coverage, and does not minimize my huge pore (like the picture above). I tried to use a primer underneath it, it lasts a little bit longer. The good thing about this foundation is it does not like cakey at all. Most of the powder foundations will make your face feel heavy and cakey but this one is not at all. If you like powder foundation, and you dont have huge pore need to be coverd, it def worth to try it.

Instant hydration with coconut water                     
Luminous look that lasts all day.                      
Shine-free formula made with water, not oil       I dont know, since it has a sheen in it.

good: light wight, add sheen to your face, refresh feeling when apply
bad: the brush is horrible, not enough conerage, absorb oil

!RECOMMENDED!

Finishing Powder with the AGE DEFYING cream foundation



over all: 90/100
I love this setting powder. It just a drug store version of the MAC one's (click here for the mac magically cool liquid powders review!). The only difference would be this one does not have any sheen in it. It is long lasting (I have it one for 9 hrs.... and it still stays on perfectly!) I got the color #40 it is a little bit too dark for me but its not that big of deal becasue after a little while the color is kinda becoming translucent. In this case you dont need to worry about apply this too much on the face LOL. I cant use the brush that comes with it (just like the aqua powder foundation).... it is a little bit harder to apply on face than the MAC one, but the product is def worth the money. I think every girl needs a translucent setting powderlike this!

Instant hydration with coconut water       √ 
Sets makeup for a shine-free finish          √ 
Wears all day                                          √ 
Soft matte formula made with water, not oil., so there’s no shine            √ 
SPF 13                  
Wear alone or with Colorstay Aqua™ Mineral Makeup                     ×  no way! they are different finish, the matte finish will ruin the luminous look

!HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
