Kai Group Pallete for Liquid Foundation Review

The injection of the Kai Group Pallete for Liquid Foundation into my daily regime was a no brainer for me. I make a proper mess when I am putting on BB Cream or concealers. Normally I’m mixing them on my arm and that’s a bad idea because I end up getting it on my clothes, other parts of my body, my vanity…everywhere.

This handy little tool is an essential if you’re an arm mixer!


Sometimes BB Creams are too light or sometimes I want to get my harder concealers softer so I whip out my arm and proceed to use it as a palette for mixing these products.

That can be a bit messy!

That’s why I picked this little guy up (I think I’m going to grab another for concealers) as it makes mixing a snap and it’s mess-free!

It’s basically a little half dome shaped plastic bowl of sorts which fits nice and snug into the palm of my hand. I can mix various products inside (I find it’s best used for mixing up BB Creams, foundations, bases, or concealers but you can use it for mixing pigments too or cream shadows, etc…) without having a big mess on my hands. I like how small it is and how it fits the shape my hand so comfortably. It’s not bulky and I find it’s like an extension of my hand as I work!

It also includes a little suction cup on the underside so you can stick it up on your mirror after use or to dry it out after you’ve cleaned it with warm water.

Personally, if you’re an arm or hand mixer I highly suggest snagging one.

Very Muse Approved for purchase.

I purchased it on Imomoko.com for $8.99 (the price jack up is horrible compared to Japanese retail cost but I still felt it was worth the price).

Muse Approved for purchase!

    Why are all the coolness and “niftyness” coming out of the Asian beauty market? I must check my local Japanese specialty store to see if they have this.. thanks for sharing!

    I’ll definitely be picking this up Muse — I have to mix my foundation daily (Nothing is light enough!)

    might have to pick this up along with the two new lavshuca palette sets coming out

    cool – I have a tiny crystal bowl I keep on the counter which works great for blending stuff. THis seems pretty handy though and less likely to get broken.

    OMG, I just can’t tell you how bad I want this thing! lol I’ve been trying to find something like that for so long that as soon as I discovered this here, I rushed straight to the store…and to a nasty surprise: they don’t ship to where I am!

    Man, am I bummed. I’ve been looking for something like that for absolutely ages, because I’m a big, big fan of mixing – not just for color adjustment, but also just mixing loose pigment with some kind of medium, like clear lipgloss or lip cream,or even moisturizer! (I really like loose pigment of all kinds, and mixing is pretty much a given there).

    Anyway, I’ve tried tons of stuff. including the arm/back of hand thing and the glass/porcelain bowls like Majick said, but nothing ticks all the boxes (the glass ticks a lot of them, but it’s total fail because of the fragility!)

    So when I saw this I was like, wow, perfection in clear acrylic *dreamy sigh*. I didn’t even mind about the price! Like you said, totally worth it :-)

    So it sucks they don’t ship – it feels like it’s sitting there, taunting me by being juuust out of my reach lol. So I just HAVE to ask if you know of anywhere else to buy it? Pretty please, with an entire orchard of cherries on top?

    I tried hard to find it myself, but all I get is this post and imomoko. I know sometimes with asian products you need to play around with the keywords because the product names can be subtly different depending on the translation, especially with this type of small, nifty tool or accessory where the brand might not be considered important enough to mention on some listings. But I haven’t had any luck with that, either.

    So if you can think of anything I haven’t tried, I’d be ever so grateful! And in return if you want I can get you some greek makeup brands to add to that enviable stash :-)
