Quick Review: Castledew Watershot Foundation

This is a review for VOV Castledew Water Shot Foundation!
(as requested by Blair and Songling!)

Picture from http://www.tradekorea.com

Sarah gave me a VERY generous sample of this in her love pack!
She suggested I try it because Japan is VERY hot and humid in the summer!!!
And yes, it is still VERY MUCH summer in Japan!!!! It will be hot and humid until mid-September at least!!!!

Pros:

  • Very light, doesn’t feel heavy on my face
  • coverage is very good, and very buildable!!!
  • the finish is matte
  • does a very good job in hiding redness
  • doesn’t settle into pores
  • very easy to blend!

Cons:

  • Not widely available in Japan (I couldn’t find this on Korea Depart or on Rakuten) I did find this on Korea Depart!
  • Smells like my mom’s makeup (this is not a deal breaker for me, but I know people are partial to smells!)

Wow, this was really great! I didn’t really expect anything from it, but I like it a lot!!
I did a quick search for it, and I found that Jamilla and Kathi both have done reviews on it!!

Jamilla’s FOTD/Review here
Kathi’s Review here (she also says that it costs only $7. WOW!!!)

When you’ve got Jamilla and Kathi both recommending this foundation, you know it’s got to be good!!!

I baked some very yummy brownies this past weekend!
I have been trying to find a good brownie recipe!

The recipe is from Smitten Kitchen, one of my ALL TIME favorite foodie blogs!
Deb, the author, lives in NYC. If she can cook in her teeny kitchen (you know what I mean if you’ve ever lived in NYC), I know I can!!!!

What would you like to see me cook next?

  2. Wow, this foundation looks great on you! Love the FOTD pics. =)

  3. Hi!
    Was wondering whether the foundation oxidizes. I find most foundations I use become darker after awhile, or maybe there’s something i’m doing wrong…
    Anyway…
    The brownie looks sooooooooo delicious!
    You should make ice cream came next! And tell us how…

  4. Hey, dear! You’re so right, I didn’t saw this here in Korea, but it’s so nice make-up line! I like Castledew so much :)
    Hmmm… Here in Korea so “cold”. I need to close all the doors and windows at night time already.
    Aww! I have a Q. What do you using to get your hair color? I like it so much!

  5. LOL on smelling like mom’s makeup! Is it better that it doesn’t smell like grandma’s??? :) that’s a pretty FOTD though..I like it that it’s light but too bad, its not even available down here, we have VOV cosmetics down here but not this one!

  6. Ooh those brownies look good! I must try that foundation if I get a chance to visit Korea.
