I have had my eye on this foundation for a while now and having looked at everyone’s reviews I thought I would give in and finally order with my next Superdrug order. I initially planned to walk to Superdrug on my lunch break in order to properly colour match however, it has been so hot in the UK that I just couldn’t do it. I colour matched online and luckily they have a wide range of shades and they actually help with descriptions of colour tones for each.
I went for F4 which claims to be ‘for light skin tones with neutral undertone’ which I think is accurate and the colour matches my skin tone. I am also going to purchase a shade darker as I think F4 will be too light for when I am tanned. Luckily it is too warm for me to fake tan at the moment… not ideal living in a flat when it is so warm. You will have seen from my haul video that I also purchased the brush that goes with it and have only used them together so far.
It is very affordable at £7.00 for a 18ml bottle.
The first time I applied this foundation was after work before a mid-week cinema date with Rob. I couldn’t actually believe how smoothly it went on and the finish was like my skin, it wasn’t cakey nor did it cling to any dry patches that I often have. I think I actually said ‘WOW’ out loud when applying. I don’t have oily skin and did not use a powder to set it. It lasted all date and I was pleased.
I have used it a few more times since then for day time looks and each time I have been equally impressed with the application and the finish. I would definitely say that it is medium finish but is buildable and has better coverage than The Ordinary Foundation. You cannot feel it on your skin and it hasn’t led to any breakouts as of yet. It is not really a matte Finish and leaves the skin glowing. I have actually had compliments on how good my skin looks when wearing it.
The biggest test for the foundation came this weekend when it was so warm and I didn’t have any real plans except popping to a few shops and sitting in the garden. I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to see how it lasted all day. I was so pleased, my skin looked almost as good at the end of the day as it did in the morning, despite the fact I had been in a hot shop, sat in the sun, had a nap and even a little cry. Rob was coming over in the evening, and usually I would at least touch up my makeup or re-do the whole thing. You can tell its a relationship at an early stage. However, I didn’t need to, my skin still looked almost flawless.
I will do a full review once I have been using it for a bit longer, but I have a feeling this will be a firm favourite now.
What are your thoughts on this foundation?
