Back in the Raycious days, I don’t recall a creamy compact foundation being released. (The (remotely) closest product was probably the Stick Foundation, which has a cream-to-powder consistency.)

On October 14th, Primavista, Raycious’ successor, will release Creamy Compact Foundation (SPF 33, PA++), which follows the launch collection released on September 1st. It claims to be able to create a smoother and softer appearance for the skin.

My skin is usually too oily for any liquid or cream foundation, so I am not personally excited by this. (Bare in mind that many technically “oil-free” products use waxy substances instead to help the product glide, and they can feel equally greasy for people with oily skin.) But I will still be interested to read about feedback for any Primavista release.

Hi PJ,
kng here (under a new ID) here, if u still remember me… :) I haven’t tried this myself, but one of my friends tried the new compact powder foundation and found that it cakes up really badly for her… Would be a pity if the new Primavista range does not live up to the Raycious standards…

Hi Kng Suan,

I have tried a trial sample of the new Primavista powder foundation, and I think it performs very similarly to the later versions of Raycious (with similar goods and bads). I have planned a post in October where I will talk about it in more detail. :)

Thank you for your comment again! :)
