I bet you haven't heard of Kate Tokyo's Quick Remake Liquid yet! It's fantastic!

#productreview

Kate Tokyo's Quick Remake Liquid is made to retouch worn-out makeup during the day, but the idea of applying fresh liquid foundation on makeup already covered in dirt and oil creeps me out. I would rather blot with blotting powder and pat my oily areas with powder foundation or pressed powder to keep it simple.

This is a moist liquid that turns into smooth powder (although I didn't feel or see it turn to powder). A liquid makeup fixer for applying over foundation to easily remake the base makeup finish, to be beautiful again.


Although I find myself bringing this with me recently to retouch my nose because that's the area I lose makeup fast in just about 4 hours of wear. It's very frustrating. This pregnancy has made my nose oil more than usual no matter what mattifying primer I put on there! LOL

More after the break!


Before the event, I have never heard of Remake Liquid before, but I have heard of Kanebo or KATE Tokyo. So I discovered this Quick Remake Liquid at The Kate Tokyo event last May and I was really intrigued because I never had to retouch with a liquid product before. I have only recently used this for retouching so I will be reviewing this as a base. A lot of blogs will show you how it looks for retouching, but I truly enjoyed using this as a base!

Imagine, I have had this product since May and I still have a lot left in the tube considering I find myself using it a lot!
This small tube has lasted me for months, and I mean months. A little of this product goes a long way and it gives really great coverage, at least for me. I don't need a whole lot of coverage anyway so I find myself using just a little of this stuff.
The tube is quite small, but a little really does go along way. Some people would find this liquid makeup runny or would describe it having the same consistency as a tinted moisturizer, but for me it's quite thick and creamy.
It has a pointed tip just like liquid concealers do. I guess it's to control the amount of product that you would dispense for retouching. You don't want to end up with too much anyway! I don't like caking. Although I guarantee you that it won't cake when you apply it on top of worn out/tired makeup.
This Remake Liquid is perfect for those gals who love going out after work and would love to completely freshen up their makeup, which powdering just won't do. It has a creamy consistency that really goes on smoothly on the skin. In spite of the full coverage it leaves you with, it really won't cake the makeup underneath if you use it for touch ups.
You can see how it looks like second skin, and it has a very soft moist finish. It won't leave you looking dry and cake-y.
I just love using this as a base for my everyday face because it really makes a really good liquid foundation for me because it's so lightweight and it has great coverage! It's very breathable.

On bare face, I dot the 5 key areas of my face with the Remake Liquid for Cover: Nose, Chin, Both Cheeks, and the nose. I then use my fingers or my SOFFIA Opulence Perfect Skin Foundation Brush and I buff the foundation into my skin until it's very well blended, going towards the hair line and the chin.
You can see how it looks like it melted right into the skin. By the way, don't mind my nose because it's really the pregnancy that's making it look so red and is enhancing my large pores. LOL I don't like applying too much foundation on that area because when I oil, I end up looking runny and messy!

I have so much white heads now but I can't have a facial just yet which frustrates me even more.
I then used Collection Bright and Glow Powder Foundation in Almond to set my base. I used a brush instead of the sponge that it comes with so it gives a more natural finish on my face. I don't like looking too made up during the day.
This is my game face for day time. Sometimes I use red lippies and on some days deep purple or magentas. But today? I felt like reliving Happy Skin's Valentine Kiss, which was last year's lippie collaboration with Kris Aquino! I was feeling a bit romantic.
On my face: Kate Tokyo Remake Liquid for Cover as base, Collection Bright and Glow Powder Foundation in Almond to set my base, MAC blush in Worldly Wealth to contour, Palgantong POP Cheek Blush in Baby PinkPixi by Petra Natural Brow Duo in Medium Brown for my brows, I then used Happy Skin Eye Am Here to Stay 24h Gel Pencil Eyeliner in Chic Brown to tight line my upper lash lines, Canmake Nose Powder to contour my nose, then I curled my lashes and applied 3 coats of Maybelline HyperCurl Volum' Express Waterproof Mascara.


HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS:
Length of usage before review: On and off for 4 months

  • Can be set with powder for a smoother, more polished finish.
  • No annoying fragrance.

  • Compact enough to take with you for quick touch ups.

NEUTRAL
  • Some people find it a bit pricey, but I find the price worth it. A little goes a long way so the tube can last a long time.

  2. Ooh this is really interesting. Definitely evens out skin tone so you would need less foundation. You definitely looked fresh Ms Saab!

  3. It's nice to know it doesn't crease. I hope nose oil would stop after you give birth to your baby and would get back to normal (now ko lang nalaman yun!):D I'm not into this packaging, I cannot use the whole product till empty unless I cut it :p (kuripot problems)
