I'm back to having gold hair again!!!~ Neh.... just kidding. hahahax~
Well why I post this picture because something reminds me of it.
It's COVERMARK Moisture Veil LX. And why, you say? Few years ago, I been using Covermark base foundation for most of my cosplays, events, shoots, and my skin looks pretty flawless! (also bcos I'm younger that time huh. o_O) And I use them on extreme weathers & locations such as this one. ↓↓↓↓↓ You can read more about it here! (clicky!) ^^
This is my 2nd Covermark base foundation casing (first one was a green squarish casing). You can read more on my purchase of my Covermark Moisture Veil EX in this post (clicky!). Beside the casing is my recently bought refill! More about it later in this post! ^^
Moisture Veil LX Beauty Workshop
On 29 September, I was invited to attend a Beauty Workshop held at Mandarin Orchard Hotel. This was an exclusive coverage of beauty know-hows conducted by Ms Akemi Senoo. Ms Akemi was speaking in Japanese during the session and there was a interpreter who translate to English. I totally do not understand Japanese, I only know very simple words such as greetings. Lolx~
A cute mirror that is for us to bring home! ♥
Before introducing the Covermark Moisture Veil LX, they started with basic skincare regimen.

Covermark Deep Cleansing Oil
Covermark Mineral Wash
Covermark Cell Advanced Lotion
Covermark Cell Advanced Serum
This is SUPERRRRR CUTE!!!! Only available in Japan, they have this Super Mini size Cell Advanced Mask! Lolx~
Before putting on Makeup, its a need to put on a makeup base first. Here we have Covermark Connecting Base SPF38 PA+++. This base is waterproof against sweat, water and sebum. After application, they sprayed water on top of it, showing how waterproof the Connecting Base is. Even when I tilt my hand, the water droplets just stayed there!
The process of making Covermark foundation, from State 1 to 3. No 4 is their special powder.
State 1 - Foundation in liquid state
State 2 - After stirring the foundation for very, very long (not sure how long.. lolx), it hardens into solid state
State 3 - After stirring (again), it becomes coarse powder form
No 4 - And lastly, this is a Covermark's Original functional complex powder. The powder is super airy and bouncy when we move the bottle about. Almost like there is wind blowing it around. This is one of the main component in Moisture Veil LX foundation.
Here, I applied Covermark Moisture Veil LX base foundation on back of my hand. They sprayed water on top and they stayed as individual droplets without sliding down my hand or get absorbed by the foundation

Swatches on Na (everbluec)'s arm and my arm. Such big difference!!! Hahahax~ She is super fair (almost to porcelain white, pink tone) and mine is medium (yellow-orange/ochre tone).
As can see, MN00 is closest to Na's shade, and for me, I been using MO20 all these while. ^_^
I included a Foundation Colour Chart for easy reference. The swatches is lacking of MN10 because it wasn't available and the chart is lacking MP30.

My COVERMARK Moisture Veil LX Haul
I started using Covermark base foundation since 2009 (before I even started blogging), I was still using their older version of foundation and find it REALLY good. Thereafter when Samplestore's (formerly FR3B) promoting the new version of Covermark base foundation which is the Moisture Veil LX on 2010, I got it at a promo price.
After a year later, I got overwhelmed by many new kinds of foundations that I had totally forgotten Covermark (more like I wanted to try other foundations. hehehex~ =p)
THEN!!! This workshop brought me back to Covermark again! It felt like.... Old love. Lolx~
And so, last week I zoomed to Takashimaya to get myself the MO20 Refill as they were having a 10% discount for Taka cardholders. Instead of $70, I got it at $63. *Yeah!* ^_^v~ SOooo glad I still kept its casing! ♥
FYI, Japan is selling the Casing + Refill @5775円 (~S$96.25), Casing alone @1575円 (~S$26.25) and Refill @4200円(~S$70). Its cheaper or exact same price here in compare to Japan!~ ^o^/~
COVERMARK was developed by Lydia O'Leary in New York in 1928 for the purpose of naturally concealing birthmarks, scars, or skin discoloration. Inspired by her compassion for people who tend to be depressed because of their looks, "COVERMARK" was establised in 1960 to produce and sell high-quality covering foundation in Japan. After that, COVERMARK penetrate to Asian market as an Expert in Foundation.
