So I was in the market for a hydrating foundation. This one seemed promising. This line from Maybelline also comes in matte form. It’s around $7 CAD
My actual shade is 112 , but I went to 2 stores and both were sold out. So I went with 115 , I figure it will match me in the summer.
It definitely had a scent , sorta like sunscreen. I’ve been applying it with a beauty blender. The beauty blender does absorb a lot of this foundation. I don’t mind too much , because I’m not a huge fan of foundation brushes.
It most definitely needs to be set with a powder. Even on my dry skin, it slid around on my face.
I prepped my face using the NYC Smooth Skin Perfecting Primer. Awhile ago I said I hated this , but I’m actually starting to like it.
Then I applied the foundation using a sponge. Here’s before : here’s after
I would say it’s around medium coverage. It’s not a bad foundation, but I would only recommend if you have very dry skin. Otherwise it will just slide around on your face.
Some people say it oxides a lot. For me I don’t really see a change in colour.
Thx for reading 🙂
