Review: VOV Liquid Foundation

4 years ago

Hi guys! Haven`t been on here for a while but I started another beauty blog on Tumblr (http://anyoneforcake.tumblr.com) so I will start reviewing and posting here again :)

VOV is a Korean brand foundation that I bought when I was overseas in Asia.

The texture of the foundation leans towards the liquid side more than the creamy side. Its easy to spread out and blend, plus it doesnt dry that fast, so working slowly isnt much of a problem. It has no SPF, which is not a problem for me as it allows me the choice of wearing it both during the day (with sunscreen underneath or an SPF inclusive powder to set) and at night. At first, I really liked this foundation because it blended well into my skin, despite that the shade is slightly too light for me (it only comes in 3 shades - the one above was too dark). Its also very natural and has a scent similar to baby powder. However, after wearing this a few more times I started to dislike this product. The foundation is supposedly suitable for all skin types, however it slides off my oily skin too easily for my liking, plus it settles into pores (even when I use a face primer!) which is very unattractive. The coverage is light to medium at most, but Ive noticed that it slightly cakes if too many layers are applied.

While Im not a fan of the product itself, I do like the packaging - the pump is very convenient and more sanitary compared to pour bottles. It also comes in 40mL, which is more than the average foundation would have. Sadly, this is all irrelevant to me as I didnt like this product very much.

I dont recommend this product for oily (and possibly combination) skin types, especially those who have rather visible pores. I would assume itd be good for those with dry/normal skin, but since Im not one of those people, I cant say for sure. Also, the foundation has a yellow/cool undertone to it, so it would suit Asian skin better than others.

My final verdict:

I do think it would benefit those with less problematic skin. Also, due to the liquidy texture, I can mix it with other thicker foundations to get a better consistency. Overall, I really think it depends on your skin and how well a product suits it. This one just didnt suit mine very well at all.

Thats all for now :D
