I have been waiting and waiting for this foundation to reach Malaysia and when I saw it in Sephora, immediately got my shade matched and grabbed a bottle. It retails at RM135 for 1 fl oz which is pretty reasonable for a high end brand. My closest shade is Warm Nude.
On Sephora’s site this foundation claims:
- Packaging & Scent
It comes in a cute glass bottle with a PUMP. I love pumps in general but this one in particular gives me the exact control on how much I want it to dispense so even if you only want half a pump, you wont end up wasting any of the foundation which is AWESOME. Next best thing is that it has close no to scent whatsoever.
- Consistency & Finish
I’ve been using the NARS All Day Weightless Luminous Foundation for almost half a year now and got used to the runny consistency so when I tried this I was like ekkk, quite thick but I wasnt so quick to judge since everyone on YouTube loves this foundation. It leaves a skin like finish which isn’t too matte or too dewy.
This foundation is super full coverage. I have breakouts and some scars and I always go in with concealer but with this one, I dont have to use concealer AT ALL. I just go in with a second layer of foundation on the areas that needs more coverage and it covers up everything.
It blends beautifully with a brush and also with beauty blender but the brush definitely gives more coverage. Given the consistency, it somehow doesnt feel heavy on the skin whatsoever and it doesnt dry up quickly or way too slow. Just nice so you definitely have time to work with it. It didnt clog my pores or aggravate my skin, I can confirm that coz I’ve been using it for close to 3 weeks now with no irritations.
Personally, I always set my foundation so with this, I go in with my regular Bourjois Healthy Balance Compact Powder on top of this foundation like how I would the other foundations that I use. However, I notice that I have to blot more with this foundation throughout the day compared to NARS. I get a teeny bit more shiny with this foundation but I love it so much not to use it! The finish, the coverage, the way it feels on my skin.
I might need to invest in a mattifying primer but although it doesnt keep me completely matte, it lasts the whole day in terms of coverage and it doesnt break down on my face as much too even with the oil seeping through.
All in all I think this is a fantastic foundation especially if you have normal to dry skin because it didnt cling onto my dry patches. Head on over to Sephora and test it on your face to see how you’ll like it. Also, Sephora is having 15% off any face products till 2 September 2015 and that makes this foundation to be only RM115. That’s a steal if you ask me!
Thanks for reading guys! ❤
