Innisfree Smart Foundation Perfect Cover (No. 23 Natural Beige) Review


Since it only contains 15ml, the tube is very small and is approximately 10cm tall. I like the small tip on the packaging. The squeezable tube makes is easy to control how much product I want which I love.


No. 23 Natural beige matches my medium skin tone. The formula is a little thicker than bb cream and more of a thick foundation consistency. It has a sunscreen /old person scent to it. I cannot really explain but I do not like the scent one bit!


It is a thick consistency so it takes a bit of effort to blend into the skin using fingers. I only use a pea size and use a patting motion with my fingers or a brush to get a somewhat natural finish. I find that this foundation can look cakey if you layer it.

This foundation mixed with The Face Shop Aura Control Cream gives off a natural finish with good coverage.


There are other versions in this Innisfree Smart Foundation line. I chose perfect cover. The finish of the Perfect Cover is matte. It accentuates my dry patches. I recommend those who have dry skin to maybe buy the moisture version or mix this foundation with a moisturizing product.


It provides a medium coverage. It is not enough to cover my dark blemishes though.

Lasting power

Oil control for this product is great (I use it in conjunction with the Innisfree No Sebum Powder) It doesn’t move around my face which is good.


This line of foundation was made so that each version could be mixed with each other, hence why it has such little product. It comes with 15g of product and I bought it for $5.95USD at Koreadepart which ends up a decent price.


Medium coverage
Good squeezable tube for control
Has SPF33 PA+++
Long lasting
Good Oil control


Unpleasant sunscreen/old people scent
Accentuates dry spots
Broke me out
Thick consistency- can look cakey

Final Verdict

Packaging 5/5
Formula/Colour 2/5
Finish 3/5
Lasting Power 5/5

Overall 2.5/5 Although I said quite negative things about my personal opinion on this product, it has some merit. I think the other versions in this foundation line may be more promising. Perhaps mixed with the Innisfree Smart Foundation Blender, the perfect cover will have a more moisturizing and natural finish.

I am afraid to use it again in case it causes me to break out again. I will find the courage to use it again and update this post if it actually doesn't break me out.

Thank you for reading!
