Today, I am going to talk about a product that has been out for a while now, but I recently got my hands on it, as it still has not released in Pakistan(god knows why!). Whenever I used to search ‘drugstore foundations for oily skin’ on Youtube, it was mentioned in almost every video, so I decided to try it out.
Basicially, this foundation is aimed for those with oily skin, as it is a matte foundation.
It comes in a glass bottle and without a pump.The packaging is not quite handy because first, glass bottles can easily break and second it does not come with a pump which makes taking out the foundation quite messy.
The formula is very smooth and creamy. The consistency is not too thick, but nor too runny. It does not feel heavy or cakey no matter how much you layer it up.
I absolutely LOVE this foundation. The best thing about it is that is blends like a dream. You can go and apply 3 layers of this foundation and it won’t look cakey or feel heavy at all.
It looks so natural on the skin. It is not full coverage but you can get pretty decent coverage with 2 layers. I apply it with a beauty blender and it looks flawless.
As you can see my skin is quite damaged due to acne and almost every foundation settle into my scars, giving my face a cakey look, but this does not settle into my scars and it does minimizes the appearance of my pores.
It lasts for about 5-6 hours on my skin, which is extremely oily. It does not give a completely matte effect but more a satin finish.They have a wide range of shades to get your perfect match.
Overall, I think it is an amazing foundation and is extremely affordable i.e $6. Any one who is beginner in makeup, this is a great foundation to start with as it is not heavy on the pocket and looks very natural.
