I’m gonna keep it real here folks – I hate high coverage foundation and only bought this because the consultant who recommended it was super hot. So imagine my surprise when I ended up actually liking the stuff! Wow, a cute consultant who knows his products…oy, that guy just keeps getting hotter.
So anyway, at first the name scared me a little. To me, anything designed to look good on camera is gonna be really thick and look like spackle. And what girl doesn’t wanna look like she did her make-up at the Home Depot? Answer: Me.
So I dabbed this on very lightly, then went over it with a foundation brush. I was amazed at how just a small amount made my skin look velvety and flawless. And because it offers “buildable coverage” as Sephora hottie boy calls it, a few extra dabs on my problem areas – dark circles and blemishes – and my skin was perfect.
And the color selection is outstanding. There’s seriously a shade for every skin color and undertone. Even mine was easy to match, and that’s saying something cuz the last time I bought foundation I ended up at the Lancome counter with three people standing around me trying to swatch my face. BTW – my color – as suggested by Sephora hottie boy – is 153 Golden Honey, for “medium skin with olive undertones.”
The one drawback to this product is that it’s really easy to get carried away and apply it too heavily, so start with a teeny, tiny amount and build your way up. Remember, it’s way easier to add more than it is to take it off. And while you can apply this with a sponge or your fingers, I find the foundation brush delivers the smoothest, most even application.
That being said, I still love it, and will be debuting my new camera friendly foundation in my next tutorial.
Final Verdict- WIN
