Review on HERA HD Fix Foundation (SPF15 PA+) + FOTD

Hellos! Today I am going to review an HD foundation from a brand called “HERA”. “HERA” is a flagship brand under AmorePacific in Korea. To know more about HERA click HERE.
I decided to try Hera’s HD fix foundation as I’ve seen great reviews on it and I am also in a lookout for a nice foundation that doesn’t give ghastly white cast.

Hera HD Fix Foundation SPF15 PA+  in Pink Beige P21      Price 50,000KRW (USD50)
What it claims:
  • High definition foundation that stays on skin for 12 hours long
  • Able to improve coverage and even out skintone
  • Minimizes darkening and maintain skin brightness
  • Dermatologist tested
My thoughts after using:
1)    Consistency – In between a cream and lotion; feels really light and non-sticky 
2)    Shades – available in 4 shades (Light Beige, Pink Beige, Natural Beige and True Beige)
3)    Packaging – sturdy and classic  acrylic bottle with pump
4)    Oil Control – pretty good as I never experience oiliness for straight 8 hours
5)    Coverage – Low to medium; tends to minimize redness and even skin out; instant boost on skin brightness
6)    Scent – floral scent but would go away in a few minutes
7)    Application-  managed to blend well on skin and easy to buff or spread on skin
8)    Lasting Power – it claims to last for 12 hours but haven’t stayed that long so cannot comment; but the foundation was still pretty intact for 10 hours straight on my face
9)    Suitability – Did NOT encounter any discomfort for a sensitive skin like me
10) Availability – easily reachable in quite a few online shops

What I like about:
  • Air light feeling foundation; close to nothing
  • High in oil control yet does NOT accentuate dry spots
  • Will NOT look cakey or crease/sets in fine lines
  • Able to brighten up skin tone instantly
  • Gives a smooth matte finish and non-transferable
What I hate about:
  • Coverage is pretty low and not buildable
  • Expensive as it was priced at USD50
Overall Conclusion:
I love this foundation, because among all other foundation I have tried; this has the lightest feeling. Yes, it feels even lighter than my Shu-Uemura’s face architect foundation. Even though the coverage was pretty low, but it still managed to conceal pigmentation and even out skintone well enough. 

Comparison with Shu-Uemura’s face architect  in 774 Light Beige

Recommendation:
Even though I love this, but I would NOT buy again as I prefer a higher coverage since I have lots of imperfection to conceal. But this is great for everyday wear as it feels light and gives radiance to skin. This foundation is more suitable to those with less imperfection and is aiming for a much brighter skin finish.

  1. It looks good :) I have blemishes and I need a foundation who can cover them.

    Although you said this is not buildable meaning i have to use more amount of this foundation?

    Let me know! The packaging is quite nice!

  3. I was assuming since it was HD it'd have more coverage, hmpf. I like the packaging though, it looks really sophisticated!
    Plus it still looks great on your skin :)

  9. wow it's nice to read a review about this foundation! I've heard a lot that Hera is a high end brand in korea, but to order something online and pay so much money for thing I can't try before is a bit gambling for me..
    Did you buy it online or does Hera have a store in phillipines?
    the finish looks nice on you , btw! it doesnt cover all the imperfections, but it evens out your skin and makes it look radiant ;))

    1. I bought it online because I've seen great raves on youtube so I went ahead and purchase it~ I do regret it as the coverage was so sheer >_<

  11. Siguro sis kaya di ganon kaganda coverage nya kasi light yung formula nya. Pero dahil sa USD50 sya, it should have a good coverage. Looks like you also pay for it's packaging, ang bongga kasi parang perfume lang!

    1. ang bongga nga ng packaging pero the product itself is bleh T__T~ hays, bagay lang ata sya sa mga koreana who have perfect skin to begin with..~ Ako naman di ko like >_<

  12. I think its pretty costly for a korean brand make up :p
    Where other cheaper korean brand is available with relatively good quality, no?

    1. Yeah, totally agree ^_~ Though HERA is considered as High end brand in Korea but for this HD foundation I really don't agree on its "HD" claims.

  13. Where do you find all these new brands?! And I think ok naman siya sa skin mo. You don't need like super heavy foundation. What you are wearing up there is enough na. :D

  16. as I know Hera is one of high end brand from amore pacific, am I right? that's why the price is so expensive ;_;
    too bad that the coverage is not so good, since i am also looking for foundation or bb cream with high coverage:p
    great review Janet ^^

  19. Helloo janettt! Still as pretty! ^^ The coverage seems pretty good! Thanks for the review~

  20. Looks nice! The packaging looks good :) But I agree probably a bit light for this time of year but in the summer a light coverage is nice though.

    ReplyDelete
  21. pretty good coverage... yes I do agree with you it's quite pricy.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Huh. It's interesting that you thought the coverage was low, because I thought it was quite thick in the swatch on your hand. Just goes to tell you that just pictures just don't work.

    Still looks lovely in packaging though, haha.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Looks nice on you! It's a bit pricey for a foundation though.

  25. great review!
    i've been curious about it since it is often compared to the MUFE HD foundation.
    Hera is a pretty much high end brand even in korea, but still the price is steep. ;-/

  26. oh wow, the packaging is really great, so chic :) I really want to try this foundation, it looks like it will suit my skin type.
    thanks for the great review as always Janet <3

  27. it actually sounds like a really good foundation! The idea of not oiling up for 10hrs straight sounds amazing. It seemed to have done a good job on your skin!! Looking great Janet!
