Review ♥ L.A. COLORS Liquid Makeup (LM281 Buff)
I am already familiar with the L.A. Colors brand. I've known them for having affordable makeup products but I've never own one before. So, this is my first product from them and let's see if the quality is good.
I bought this from Thank You Mart, a 390 Japanese Yen shop in Takeshita Street, Japan for 390 Japanese Yen (tax not included). That is the only place I know where you can get L.A. Colors products in Japan except for Amazon online. It is available worldwide.
According to L.A. Colors, this is a long wearing liquid makeup covers and evens out skin tone for a flawless looking complexion. Lightweight, yet covers and conceals imperfections and this is perfect for all skin types.
It has a pump so it is very easy to use. The pump has a cover so that pumping the foundation out accidentally will be avoided.

The consistency is creamy but not to the point that it feels like a mousse. It isn't too thick but also not thin.
The shade is just right for my skin tone but at this moment, I have a feeling that the coverage of this will be sheer.
Here is my bare face with a moisturizer only. I won`t use any primer or tinted creams to really see the coverage of this liquid foundation.
I used a dry cushion puff on applying this. The coverage of the foundation is light. It only lessened some redness and dark spots and isn't satisfying. I guess it is much better if you're going to use a tinted primer, cc cream or bb cream under it to add more coverage.
I gave this product 6 minutes to set but it still felt sticky after. I couldn`t wait any longer so I set it with a powder.
It is buildable and I have no problem with putting on a 2nd layer with my dry cushion puff. The coverage is now light to medium. The redness and some of the dark spots are still visible but looks much better.
The foundation wasn't that bad with the full makeup on. I didn't used a concealer here but I used a powder to set it.
The longevity of the product isn`t that great. It made me very oily within one hour even with the setting powder on, so it made me feel uncomfortable. It`s humid in the place I am in now, so the weather might also be a factor. The effect might differ on different weathers.
