I cannot believe I finally found a foundation that actually looks glowy/expensive and only cost me $13.00. I found this at my local Rite Aid!!!
Review time: It gives me a great sun-kissed dewy look (muahah)! It doesn’t sit on your wrinkles; if you’re 30+, you know what I’m talking about.
I suffer from dry skin, and throughout the day, I get flaky. I also use heavy-duty retinols, so I’m always a bit crispy.
Staying power: Probably the not so great part. It has the glowy effect I’m craving so I don’t really care that it doesn’t last as long as my full coverage foundations. It’s compact, so I can re-apply whenever and super great for travel.
Color Selection: They are somewhat limited. I might have to mix colors. As you can see, it’s pretty dark, but the skin color on my face is different than my hand.
Coverage: The coverage lasts for about 4 hours max, and it’s light.
How skin feels after: It feels incredibly moisturizing. I thought it would create milia (bumps on the skin), but it didn’t!
Do I recommend it? Hell. YES. It’s not expensive, and if you’re looking to save on makeup, it’s definitely a great start. It reminds me of the Georgio Armani Silk Foundation (* I love but it breaks me out).
I recommend it for dry/ mature skin, or if you’re currently on acne medication and need a boost of hydration. I waited a full two weeks before reviewing because I wanted to make sure my skin had enough time to react to it. ❤️
