Innisfree Mineral Melting Foundation Review

Hellos! Today I’m going to review Innisfree’s Mineral Melting Foundation which got me really interested after reading Yan’s review HERE. The coverage look good on her and she share the same skin condition as mine so I bought it without second thought.
INNISFREE- Mineral Melting Foundation SPF32/PA++ in W3    Price: USD20
What it claims:
l         Contains Jeju mineral and organic green tea
l         Provide moisture from 100% jeju organic green tea water
l         Gives a natural coverage and transparent complexion

My thoughts after using:
1)      Consistency- it is in cream compact that feels really soft and melts once you touch it
2)      Shades- Available in 5 Shades Pink, Light, Natural, True and Deep Beige (Cool & Warm skintone)
3)      Packaging- acrylic compact with mirror, separator flap and sponge included
4)      Oil Control- good enough as I stayed oil-free for 3-4 hours
5)      Coverage- Medium to full and buildable; Able to conceal all sorts of imperfection well enough
6)      Scent- Strong “old” lady scent; similar to old perfume scent and will stay in your face for hours!
7)      Application- very easy as the provided sponge is quite useful and a simple “tap, tap, tap” is all you need. No brush is needed at all
8)      Lasting Power- It stayed on my face for 5-6 hours wihout wearing off and I did NOT even use a primer beneath nor top it off with a setting spray
9)      Suitability- This is a mineral powder so I guess this is suitable for all skintypes. I did NOT encounter any discomfort upon using and I have acne-prone and sensitive skin
10)   Availability- Even though we don’t have Innisfree here but there are a lot of online sellers selling it so I guess this is easily accessible

What I like about:
l         Provides decent coverage as it managed to conceal all my acnes and pigmentation quite effectively
l         I love how it gives a dewy finish without looking greasy or oily
l         Even without setting powder, the foundation is non-transferable so no worries on having foundation all over your cellphone lolz~
l         Despite it’s high SPF, NO white cast on flash photography at all =)

What I DON’T LIKE about:
l         Though the foundation is NOT sticky or oily but you could still feel “something” on your face
l         I’m not really fond of makeups that has smell and this foundation does have an “old” lady perfume scent and the scent would stuck on your face for hours

Overall Conclusion:
Despite the annoying smell, I really really LOVE this foundation and this becomes one of my favorite and I’ve been using it every single day! Coverage is good already so I normally skip the concealer as I only need the compact itself and off I go. No other tools is required as the sponge pretty much does the job already. No ugly streaks or uneven application as the foundation is very easy to work with.

I do recommend this to all of you as I think the coverage was good and the dewy finish is just perfect for all skintypes.
That’s it for my review on Innisfree Melting Foundation~
Thanks for dropping by =)


  1. Not bad, I am amazed that there's very little white cast.

  2. Oooo! This looks great. :O I really want to try it now haha~
    Thanks for sharing! x

  3. Looks great on you Janet, really suits your skin well. I'm so intrigued by the "melting foundation" concept too.

  4. Nice! And the price isn't bad either for the coverage you get. I also have acne-prone and super sensitive skin. I use dove and cetaphil for my face, what would you recommend? :)

    1. Hi CJ, you might want to add a Dickinson Toner after using Dove and cetaphil as it is mild enough for sensitive skin too =)

  5. Innisfree Jeju Volcanic pore toner

  6. I can understand why you love it!! it looks fresh, glowy and radiant :))
    I have never tried any of innisfree product but I heard the BB Cream is good :)

  7. Wow it looks promising sis! Where can I buy it?

    1. Hi Gen, I bought this overseas but there are a lot of sellers selling it at ebay and sulit =)

  8. look like its the new version of their melting foundation.. >o< i also love this!!!

  9. looks great


  10. it was great on u, janet! love the packaging and the coverage! ^^ nice review :D


  11. Your reviews always make me want to buy the products you recommend! I have to add this to my wish list now, because I love the look of the coverage, and the bb cream itself looks so creamy and easy to apply~

    Thanks for the review ^^

  12. i must tell you i myself cannot stomach how some of the korean cosmetics are scented!
    i don't have this foundation but i have the same puff. it is quite popular in korea, they sell it separately. :)

  13. I've been so curious about this! Thanks for sharing!

  14. so good that you found a foundation that works for you^^
    i can only use bb creams..i tried many foundations before but they all looked cakey on my skin.. maybe because they were cheap, idk.. ><

    1. As for me, bb creams mostly broke me out while foundation don't ^_~ I'm sure there will be a suitable foundation for you ^_~

  15. Great review! The Innisfree foundation reminds me of the Covergirl/Olay compact foundation. It looks great on your face and seems to provide natural, radiant coverage!

  17. Looks good!! The result is awesome!!


  18. Wow, sounds good to me
    The coverage did not look too heavy.
    innisfree is famous for their jeju natural ingredients, so it's interesting.
    thank u for sharing review^^

  19. wow.. new to me =) i love the result on you =)

  20. I love foundations with a dewy finish, though it's too bad that it feels like you're wearing something on your skin, rather than being lightweight or feeling like nothing. Coverage seems really great! :)

  21. Wow! I think I should give it a try! I love the results!

  22. This is very interesting ha! I don't really mind makeups with scents but I do hope that it's not as strong as I imagine. It looks really good kasi. :)

  23. The Jeju mineral and green tea sounds interesting. Unique ingredients always intrigue me :)

  24. It looks good :)
    Greetings from Poland. :*

  25. Oh that looks soo good! I've recently got a creme to powder foundation from sleek, I hope it works the same for me! Its flawless on you!

  26. wow looks so good on you! looks really natural on you :)

  27. Great review dear! :))
