Since I saw this being used months ago by people in America I literally wanted it so much it took all my will power not to hop on a plane and go get it so as soon as it came to the UK I purchased it, of course.
My first impressions were obviously going to be tainted by all the Youtube opinions I had heard and watched over the months so needless to say I was impressed, my only concern was the shade because I had bought this online but it matched me surprisingly well.
The packaging is lovely and is what I can only imagine makeup products used to be like in the early 20th century. The lid closes really nicely to keep the moisture in the product and the sponge has its own cute little compartment.
I have been using this foundation with my normal makeup sponge because that’s what I know I like to use and it applies so well, has good coverage and blends really easily across my skin. I normally use the more dewy kind of foundations so I knew that I would probably like the finish this gives off.
Now here’s the disappointing part. I love this foundation up until it’s been on my face for about 3 hours. I have dry skin generally which is the whole reason I don’t tend to go for matte foundations but my face gets oily after only a few hours of wear and it just doesn’t seem to dry it stays a bit wet. If you follow me on snapchat (pamperedprune) you will know that I said it felt like every bit of dirt was sticking to my face and that is really not a good feeling or look for that matter!
I will be continuing to use this foundation but I don’t think my opinion will change. It’s such a shame because it literally applies so well and looks amazing when it’s first applied. I’m not sure that applying powder would help with this or make it look cakey?
Let me know if you have any advice or if I’m doing something wrong! How are you getting on with this foundations?
