Guide Review - Review of KohGenDo Moisture Foundation

KohGenDo is a cosmetic company from Japan. They have made their mark on the industry by selling their products to the film and TV, as well as to the general public for 22-years. Currently they are branching out to the US, where they have already been used in various TV and film productions.

When I was recently contacted by the CEO for KohGenDo's US operations, I was excited to hear that their products were all high definition based makeup. When I received the tube of Moisture Foundation, I have to admit that I was a little leery of the size compared to the price. I quickly found out that the foundation is concentrated and a little bit goes a very long way.

Once I found the correct shade to sample, I followed the very easy to understand pictorial directions that was sent with the makeup. I was surprised to see that I literally only had to use three pearl-sized drops for my entire face. I applied my first trial application with my fingertips and found that the makeup went on very easily and blended well. The second time I used a foundation brush and loved the final application even more, since there was no streaking or blending issues.

Later, I found out how versatile the Moisture Foundation actually is. Not only is it waterproof and high definition, but you can also mix it with the other two shades or the Color Base correctors to give you the color you need. This is perfect if you tend to change shades from season to season. Also, I found that the foundation mixes well with their powder to form a wonderful concealer. Basically, KohGenDo's Moisture Foundation is a wonderfully versatile high definition foundation gem that is great for TV and film, but also for regular life as well. The bottom line is if you are a HD makeup junkie, then this is definitely one you will need in your collection.
