Skinfood Carrot Base | Green


This thing is one of my October favorites! It's Skinfood Carrot Base in green. This thing is..... perfect. It's a make up base (can also be a primer) for your face, before you apply any make up on.
Why green? Green color can neutralize redness on your skin, and even out your skin tone. No more uneven skin tone!




I really love the bottle. It's made of glass (or maybe a very thick plastic). It's cap is made of a very hard plastic, and covered with a wood-like sticker, so pretty. And what I like the most, it's a pump! So hygienic and easy to use. You don't need to squeeze or dip your finger into it. Just a simple pump :)




Here's a close up of the pump. It's very tiny, and let you control the amount of product that will come out. I really love how Skinfood really really care about our convenience of using their product!




It's quite big, actually. Honestly, I have a very big hand. But you can see it above, it almost fit my hand. And it's quite heavy. It's not travel friendly, but well, you can dispense it on another little pump bottle (or even a jar) when you're travelling. And I just realize that my nails kinda match the bottle ^^




This is how it look like if I pump it a bot on my hand. It has a very settle green color, a very light minty green color. And it has a semi-thick consistency, not too thick, not too runny. Just perfect. I only need a half pump to cover my entire face. And the scent is very unique. Like.... menthol maybe? I don't really know how to describe the scent. But it's not bad :)




Here's the swatch! You can see that it lightens my complexion a bit. It really even out my skin tone if i use it on my face. Actually, it becomes sticky when I apply it on my skin, kinda a bit hard to blend. You need more time to apply it evenly on your face. But the stickiness makes your make up stick on better, and make it last longer!

And I found out that this thing works best with a stippling brush. I've tried to apply it with my fingers and sponge, but it didn't give me the best result. Stippling brush is the perfect tool for this make up base.

After you apply it, you will notice that you have a brighter, fairer, and more even complexion!

It's time to score it!

Packaging: 5/5
Scent: 4.5/5
Pigmentation: 5/5
Consistency: 5/5
Application: 4/5

Overall, I really love this make up base! I highly recommend it <3

  2. ah this one seems LOVELY ..

    is it good for oily skin? because i dont think carrot line is good for oily skin .. but since it's aimed to reduce redness (which is tend to be acne prone skin) it supposed to be oil free right?

    1. Well, i think this base is good for dry to combination skin, because it's sticky and has a dewy finish. But for oily type, make sure that you set your makeup perfectly with powder xx
