Hey rouge deluxe!
do you think price plays a big part of the quality of foundations and powders or are they generally the same? Would you recommend liquid or powder foundation for light coverage or do you think loose powders for light/sheer coverage are best for oily/combo skin? i'm trying to decide between Maquillage, Coffret D'or or Lavshuca. If there is a good pressed powder preferably Japanese, could you recommend one? Currently I'm using the Lavshuca loose powder in Lucent and it's so inconvenient to carry out with me for touch ups. I'm thinking of getting something with a touch more coverage but nothing that makes me look dramtically different.
Thanks hope you can help!

Hi Millie!

Thanks for stopping by. As big companies like Kanebo and Shiseido own a range of brands from the very affordable to very high end, I would say that there are actually good foundation options even at the low to mid end range as they are all made by the same companies that make Cle de Peau, for example. Personally, my two powder foundation staples are by Esprique Precious and Jill Stuart, both of which are made by Kose. Another excellent brand is Revue by Kanebo but it has since been replaced by Coffret D'Or which I have not tried. For light coverage, I think both liquid and powder foundation would work but it's easier to control the level of coverage with powder foundation as application of liquid foundation is usually trickier compared to powder. I prefer powder foundations for their easier application and convenience.

For a good pressed powder, perhaps you can try Majolica Majorca's Powder Fantasia or Paul & Joe Pressed Powder N?
