Ok, from what I can remember, This became my favourite foundation as soon as it landed on my hand. For about a year, I think this was the only foundation I kept grabbing to use. Like I said before I am a foundation hoarder, so whatever foundation came out new around that time I would just buy and put away. I discovered this after my purchased of Dior Forever, Diorskin Star and Laura Mercier Smooth finish flawless fluide. I was on a hunt of my “HG” foundation. I should have done this review in order but I grabbed the Nars first.
The reasons why I loved this product was because, It was matte on my face, full coverage without any cakeyness. It stayed on for 7-8hrs thats just around the time i finish my work for the day. There was no patchy area, I got heaps compliments wearing this foundation. It was so lightweight on my face and I never had any breakouts!!
NOW…I tried it on again. I prepped my face with moisturiser and primed well. My skin was not dry and no flakiness.
Application with damp beauty blender sponge and right off the bat i was having slight difficulties on blending it on my skin. It was like I could tell that it was not going to be good but I kept going. The foundation set really fast so I had to work with a speed. The foundation as expected set matte. full coverage? it was patchy on some areas like forehead and nose. It emphasised my pores more- ugly!.
I am so shocked and disappointed because of all the foundations I have used, this was the one that i knew it would not disappoint me. I didn’t know what happened. It could be the primer, the moisturiser that I’m currently using? Im not really sure.
Well, based on my current experienced, this foundation is a “meh”. For the price you pay as well. But my gutt feelings says is give it a go again..so i will in the future and will give an update.
