I bought this foundation as a bit of an impulse buy as I was running out of my normal foundation and just needed something to get me through the week, but I have to say I’ve been very impressed with it!
I do need my foundations to be hard-wearing as I can often be out of the house for 15 hours at a time (sometimes longer) with little time to touch up my make-up throughout the day. So when I finally got home after the first day of wearing it, I was really pleased to see that it had stayed put and had not gone flaky or patchy.
The foundation goes on smoothly and evenly, and gives you enough time to blend into your skin before drying to a matte finish that won’t budge! It doesn’t give a completely poreless look and you can still see skin texture, which is fine for my skin as it keeps it looking fairly natural, but for people with deep pores or raised texture on their skin that might be an issue.
The main problem with this foundation is the lack of shades available. I bought the lightest shade which was a great match for my skin tone but I don’t consider myself to be particularly pale. People with very fair or very dark skin are not catered for at all. The majority of clients I work on are very fair skinned so this eliminates the potential for me to use this foundation on them.
Overall I really do like this foundation and would have no problem in recommending it to other people, and I’m sure I will be buying again in the future. The packaging and design is sleek and it gives good, long-lasting coverage. Couldn’t really ask for more from a drug store foundation!
