One of the most talked about foundations in the beauty world for it’s high quality, extensive shade range and great price tag, yet I have only just joined the hype and purchased it. After hearing so many great reviews, I had to see what it was all about and put this well loved foundation to the test on my oily, combination skin.
I went for the shade 1.R/1.C, which as you can see from the photo below looks slightly darker then my skin, however once blended it definitely is a near perfect match. This is one of the lightest shades with in the collection, and gives a dewy finish to the skin which I love. It is super light weight and doesn’t feel as though you have foundation on, yet provides a medium-full coverage hiding all my imperfections and pesky spots.
In terms of longevity, this foundation is pretty great but not amazing for me. I find around my oily t-zone it starts to fade away by the end of the day and gets shiny easier so I need to powder again. If you don’t have any oily t-zone then this probably won’t be an issue for you. However, it lasts at least 3/4 of the day before this begins to happen so it isn’t a massive issue and most foundations that provide a dewy finish tend to do this on my skin. It’s nothing a primer and setting spray can’t fix.
The shade range of this foundation is pretty impressive and is seen to cater at least 98% of the UK, which is a big claim for a foundation. This is one of the factors that drew me in as even the lightest of foundations can be a little too dark for me or oxidise over time. I do find with this foundation that it’s a pretty close match for my skin and doesn’t oxide which I was super pleased with.
Overall, I am impressed with this foundation and it has become my every day go to recently. I have been loving how it looks on my skin, how well it lasts and the finish and coverage it provides. It could just well become one of my new favourites?
