First things first, this foundation comes without a pump but I’ve used foundations that lack pumps before so it doesn’t really bother me. The fact that the actual consistency of the foundation is non-watery and runny ensures that even without a pump, you’re not left with a mess on your hands or down the bottle.
On to the actual foundation itself, it is fantastic! It stays on for hours without oxidizing or getting patchy along with giving you medium-full coverage with the first layer. While it wasn’t necessary, I wanted to see how the foundation fared when a second layer was applied, and boy was I pleased. It didn’t get cakey or make me look like a mannequin which is always a good thing in my books haha.
I have incredibly dark circles so it didn’t completely cover those, but in all honesty I’ve never had a product that could completely eliminate those pools of darkness beneath my eyes haha. Other than that, all the redness and unevenness on my face was gone immediately after I applied the first layer of foundation with a very light hand.
The only thing you need to be careful about is being very quick to blend it, otherwise you’re in for a ton of buffing and unflattering results. Start with small portions of your face, apply a bit of foundation and immediately start buffing it in before moving on to another part and repeating the actions. The finish you’re left with is a semi-matte one, my absolute favorite.
Before and After
I would definitely recommend this foundation to those who are looking for something with full coverage and amazing long lasting properties, on a budget! It is believed to be an almost exact dupe of MACs Pro Long Wear Foundation, and while I haven’t tried that, I’m more than pleased with my purchase. Also the fact that the combo-oily skin version didn’t dry out my face or turn it into a grease ball after a couple of hours is worth mentioning.
What is your reaction?
