Everyone on YouTube seems to be talking about how much they love this foundation, so I decided to visit my local drugstore to pick this up and give it a try. To sum it all up in one word, this product is SUPERB. As always, everything in this world have their ups and downs and so does this foundation, so let’s start breaking them down, shall we?
Retail Price: C$14.99
Overall Rate: 4.5/5
1.) Keeps The Skin Flawless For More Than 8 Hours
As you may have seen if you have watched my video review, my acne scars remained concealed for more than 9 hours and so did my uneven skin tone using this foundation. Use a “patting and circular” motion with your foundation brush for a more blended and long-lasting effect.
2.) Matches The Skin Color Perfectly
With 22 shades available in this line of foundation, you’d think it would be hard to find the perfect or closest match for your skin color. However, with just one try, the 320 True Beige was my exact color and this doesn’t usually happen (to be honest, I just simply suck with choosing the right shade for me ha!). Use the testers usually available for any make up products and apply a little on your lower cheek or on the neck to help you find your exact match.
3.) Buildable To Your Desired Coverage Level
With up to medium to full coverage, this foundation has a buildable formula so you are able to control your desired coverage level. To avoid cakiness, reapply the product only on problem areas or better yet, use a concealer on top of the foundation to achieve the maximum coverage.
1.) Packaging Does Not Come With A Pump
Yes, this foundation is the “screw out, pour and screw in” type. We all know how much of a sucky that can be, especially when you over pour and waste tons of the product. Make sure to shake the bottle first before opening and slowly pour the product on the back of your hand to prevent too much liquid from coming out.
2.) Feels Heavy On The Skin
I mentioned in my video review that the formula did feel lightweight in the beginning, but throughout the day/night, I could feel the product starting to creep in and feel heavier in the skin. This usually happens to most foundation that I have used before and although it claims to provide the lightweight feel, I was a little bit skeptical about it and expected the opposite.
I hope this was helpful and informative for you. If you decide to try it out, don’t forget to let me know what you like and don’t like about it. Thanks for stopping by!
