Naturactor Cover Face Review

Naturactor Cover Face Review Shade 140 

I confess, I've always preferred BB Creams over liquid/cream foundations. The reason why I avoid high coverage foundations is that they tend to feel heavy and look so "flat" or obvious. Will this product be any different?


I'm pretty happy with my skin now to be honest and I usually opt for light-medium sheer coverage bb's with dewy finishes since I think they tend to look more youthful and fresh. However, there are some instances such as weddings/photoshoots where heavy coverage and lasting power is required so I decided to check out this Japanese concealer/foundation product people are raving about.

I bought mine for Php 750 (free shipping) from Japanichi. Customer service is awesome and I love the variety of stuff she sells <3

Review

Pros 
  • Superior Coverage- can be adjusted depending on how much you apply it can go from light to heavy.
  • No heavy mask-like feeling 
  • Not cakey
  • 2-in-1 product (foundation and concealer)
  • Good for oily/combination skin (did not become oily nor break me out)
  • Long-lasting (set with powder if you have oily/combination skin)
  • Not light reflective (perfect for studio/flash photography)
  • Matte- semi dewy finish depending on your skin type and if you set it with powder/not.
  • Affordable
  • Available locally (online shops like Japanichi)



Cons
  • I bought the wrong shade! hahaha! 140 is too dark for me so I probably need to buy the 130 although that one has a pink undertone so I'm not sure if it will look good on me.
  • Will accentuate dry/flaky patches of skin so exfoliate, moisturize and maybe prime well before application.




Overall take
I really love this product and I really wish the foundation shade matched me better. I can still use this as a concealer though but I probably need to buy shade 130 since this is really too dark for my face. You need to use a flat foundation brush to be able to apply this product properly though and for hygienic purposes also. If you have oily/combination skin expect that you need to blot your face after 3 hours or so.

I recommend this to anyone needing a long lasting full-medium coverage foundation/concealer. It doesn't feel heavy nor look cakey at all!


I topped the foundation with a lighter colored loose powder to lighten it a bit. It looks better during night time but if I use this during daytime the shade disparity is more obvious :s 







Hope this helps! and remember! 
You are beautiful! <3
