My Opinion:
This review is for the Japanese version of the colorstay that comes with a pump. I've recently seen in the comercials that there was a newer version here in Hong Kong, but I'm not sure if they have the same formula.
It appears that nearly everyone on youtube loves this foundation, and it kills me to admit that I did not like it at all. I had this bottle since 2009 and have only used it a couple of times, it has started to separate and I guess that it's going to the bin after this review.
The reason why I don't like it is because it feels really heavy on the skin and it clogs my pores, it just feels unconfortable on the skin.


  1. I think I used this foundation a few years ago. I don't remember why I stopped using it, but there must have been a good reason for it :-)

    1. Thanks, I feel better knowing that I'm not the only one
