I’ve been using this foundation on and off since the middle of last year and I recently purchased a second bottle (v unlike me) so I thought I’d do a quick review.
I’m not usually one for drugstore foundations, other than this and Rimmel Wake Me Up, I tend to stick to more high end purchases. Maybe I’m a foundation snob? Funnier things have been true.
After hearing good things about this foundation from the Pixiwoo sisters, I thought I’d give it a go. After all, they’d considered it a dupe for the discontinued beauty that was Chanel Pro Lumiere (RIP). My bottle of Pro Lumiere is used only for special occasions because once it’s gone, it’s gone forever. *sobs*
First thing I’ll say about this foundation is that it smells of apples, which I rather like. I’d say that was kind of weird but as it includes a ‘vitamin-rich fruit therapy formula’ I can understand why.
I have normal to combination skin, with my t zone being more on the oily side much to my dismay. I find this foundation lasts well on my skin when used in conjunction with my Rimmel Stay Matte powder. The foundation has a medium coverage and is lightweight on the skin. It sinks in well and blends seemlessly into my skin.
I tend to use this with my Real Techniques Buffing Brush but I’ve also been known to use it with their Stippling Brush. Both of which are the best foundation brushes I’ve used.
It is a very radiant foundation, which is perfect for the warmer months but I’ve found it’s pretty good all year round. The only downside is that the shade selection is very limited and I found it quite hard to match myself up properly. I find it depends on how tan I am as I use shade 55 Dark Beige which is one of the darker shades in the range.
What drugstore foundations do you love? Have you tried this one, if so what are your thoughts?
Also, what kind of posts would you like to see me do?
