I purchased this Laneige Snow Crystal Dual Foundation a few weeks ago because I loved the idea of having a 2 in 1 product – see this has a liquid foundation and concealer in the same pot!
Another reason I bought this was because it came in a ‘darker’ shade (by Korean standards!) in a shade 33 – which is supposed to be quite a tan hue.
Laneige is a pretty decent Korean brand – it’s higher end than Skinfood and Etude House without being extortionate.
The concealer lives in the lid, and the foundation is released with this hygienic pump:
The only problem with those pumps is that sometimes you can push a bit more than you need. Just do a short, small push! Otherwise you get far too much.
The foundation and concealer – the concealer I would say is a little lighter than the base, once it is applied to the skin which makes it ideal for under the eye:
The concealer looks like it’ll be quite hard, but it’s creamy once you use your finger or brush to apply it. It does have a slightly waxy texture though.
Although this base is really handy I still feel like it is slightly too pale for me – just a notch, but I find it kinda annoying!
Also I felt the base was a little too liquid – the coverage wasn’t enough for me and I felt it took some time to blend in. Eek!
This product would be handier for someone with a medium-light complexion and great skin!
I paid about £28 for this on eBay.
