So I have been wanting this foundation for a verrryy long time and easy finally able to purchase it from Selfridges in the shade Santa Fe, and I have used it well enough to give my opinion on this product. Here is a swatch of it.
The packaging is the first thing I am going to be talking about, the bottle itself is made of frosted glass and looks classy which is a bonus, it makes the product look great!
I did read reviews of this product before I purchased it and watched some YouTube tutorials so I was aware that the product is pretty watery. Once receiving it and shaking the bottle myself my first thought was “what the hell have I ordered” I thought something was wrong with my actual product, so I shook it to mix the product up and pumped it onto the back of my hand and it was as if I have placed water to the back of my hand it just leaked right off my hand which took me by suprise, I remember thinking what the hell is going on, this product is a high end one and is pretty expensive so I was not inpressed at all at this moment. I continued using the product, I have used this several times with different tools, I first used my fingers, the next time I used my real techniques sponge and I have also used it with my morphe blending brush.
I moisturised my skin really well before using this product as I have heard it sticks to dry patches on the skin. Using 2 pumps and a small third pump I covered my entire face so a little does go along way, at first it looked really glowy and almost as if I’ve slapped a ton on however after a while it did settle in to my skin and the colour was perfect.
The foundation is very light weight and the coverage I would say is medium as I could still see some marks on my face, but that wasn’t a problem a little concealer fixed it right away.
Through the day I did find that my skin was feeling oily around my nose and my forehead which I usually never experience with any other foundation which was pretty annoying as I had to keep touching up on my face, also I had a few people asking if I had wore a different foundation as they could tell and usually it didn’t look like I’m wearing alot ? Which I found annoying becuase I like going for a natural look and so far this foundation was giving me all sorts of negatives. 6 or 7 hours of wearing this product and it did stick to some dry patches although I made sure I moisturised properly, maybe I just didn’t moisturise enough?
So over all I have mix emotions about this foundation I really did want to love it however I think it’s not something I will be using alot ? I feel maybe other products could have been the reason as to why it was the way it was, I used the nivea post shaving balm to prime and my nyx palette to colour correct (Which I also find made my skin feel oily?). The foundation does make your skin have a luminous glow which is nice also I am yet to try it with a moisturiser, I’m thinking of mixing the two ?
Rate the product: 6/10
Would I buy this product again: No
Would I recommend this product: I would but I would say that it’s definitely not for people with dry skin and if you are going to purchase it try a sample first as it is quite expensive.
Has anyone else used this product ? Any tips or tricks to make this work for me?
Thanks for reading my review!!!
