Whilst looking for and researching into high street foundations to buy for every day use, I came across this one that I was definitely interested in. The concept is that it's full coverage and stays put throughout the day as it is used as a concealer and powder as well as a foundation.
The foundation comes as a compact and it's in solid form but it's very creamy when you touch it. I then dries to a powder finish and leaves skin feeling very smooth, hydrated but matte at the same time. The packaging is good. It's nothing special but it's very good for travel and keeping in your bag for top ups as it comes with both a mirror and a sponge. The sponge is something that I don't use as I never get on with the cheap make up accessories that come with products so I use my Real Techniques Stippling Brush instead.
Once again, I apologise for this nasty image. You might have seen this one before and this is because I did in fact take both this comparison photo with the BB Cream comparison photo at the same time.
First of all, I must apologise for the nasty brush strokes that are in this picture. It's not the foundations fault it's my fault for being lazy with blending. It does actually blend like a dream and looks very unnoticeable. From this picture, I would say that this foundation is on the high end of medium coverage as there are still some scars peaking through. Of course, if you have near perfect skin or skin that doesn't have scarring, you could easily get away with this one step foundation. But for me, I do use a concealer just because I like my skin to look as flawless as possible.
So what do I think of this foundation overall? I absolutely love it! The thing that I love most about it is the finish. It dries so beautiful on the skin leaving it matte but not powdery and noticeable. It doesn't last throughout the entire day but this is something that I use when going to lectures or doing my shopping so I don't need it to last all day. If I'm going somewhere else though and I do, a primer easily sorts that out. I love the coverage, I love how easy it is to apply and blend and I love the price tag. It's available here for just £4.99!
Have you tried this foundation before?
