Let me just start off by saying, I personally am not the biggest fan of full coverage foundations. I prefer to stick with BB Creams, or very lightweight foundations, but this particular foundation just so happened to drop into my lap, so I thought, why not test it out and see what all the hype is about.
It retails for $46, so if I'm going to be spending that kind of money on a foundation it better be good. That's all I'm saying.
Right off the bat, I do have to say I'm a fan of the packaging. It's very sleek, not messy, and perfect to throw into your bag or suitcase when you're traveling, AND you don't have to worry about messy pumps.
Picking out a foundation shade will always be the death of me. It's either hit or miss. I ended up choosing the shade "Vanilla", which has cool undertones and is on the more pale end of the spectrum. Surprisingly, I think it matched pretty well. So far so good.
The biggest test that would determine if I love or hate this foundation, is if it would cover the blue veins that I have around my eyes, because this is one of my problem areas that even concealers don't seem to hide very well.
As you can see in the photos, I think it did a pretty damn good job, and I'm not even wearing concealer.
Since it is a stick foundation, and more on the dry side, I highly recommend exfoliating, moisturizing, and then blending the foundation in with a damp beauty blender to really get a flawless application.
It's one of those foundations that I personally wouldn't use in the winter time, because my skin gets overly dry and dehydrated, but I would save it for the humid summer months to help mattify my oily face.
