So, I got a deluxe size sample of this foundations around 6 months ago, and at first I wasn’t really that interested in trying this because it’s more suitable for normal/dry skin, and I’m more combination/’oily’, but I figured I’d give it a go anyway and I’ve been using it alot these past 3 months.
Now, like I mentioned above this is a dewy foundation, and by no means oil-controling or mattifying, so I do find that I have to use some sort of mattifying primer and/or powder with this since I tend to get quite oily in my t-zone, but as long as I do that this foundation makes my skin look so healthy and fresh that I don’t mind taking that extra step with it.
Now, when it comes to the coverage and wear on this foundation, I find that it provides a nice light-medium coverage, and it feels very lightweight on the skin, but that will depend on how much product you use, because I find that if I build it up just a little bit more than a little it can look a bit heavy, especially around my nose and cheeks, and it will also feel a bit heavy by the end of the day. But to me one layer is most of the time enough, so I don’t really have that issue, and you can, of course, always spot conceal wherever you might need it, and that way it wont look/feel heavy at all. But it is something to keep in mind if you’re interested in this foundation.
Other than that I find that this foundation blends out very effortlessly, and it does last for around 6-7hours before it starts to fade. But it fades very evenly, and I wouldn’t really notice it if it weren’t for the fact that I was keeping an eye on it when I was trying it out, so I don’t think that it will be an issue for most people.
And it doesn’t emphasize pores or fine lines, which is good. Now, I wouldn’t necessarily say that it’s blurring, because I do have to use a pore filler in the areas where I have large pores, but it doesn’t make them look worse than they already do.
So, overall I really like this foundation and the way it makes my skin look. And I would highly recommend it if you’re looking for somthing with a natural/dewy finish, and a light/medium coverage.
I got mine from Vita for 179nok and it’s available in 18 shades.
