Hi all, I feel like I haven’t done a proper review for so long. I’ve been such a bad blogger! I will get better, pinky promise! Real life just gets in the way sometimes!
I was asked to share my thoughts on this quite a while ago, and am sorry that it has taken so long to do. As you can see by the dates on the photos I did mean to do it quite some time ago.
I like the packaging of this foundation, it looks sleek and modern. The major con is that it doesn’t come with a pump, you have to purchase the pump separately for £3, I personally think that this is a bit much when you are spending £19.50 on foundation.
I was matched to shade NW15, this does suit my skin but I do find it a little more orange toned than some foundations. I have to make sure to blend very well when using this.
This foundation is described as having medium build-able coverage. I have to agree with this. As you can see my skin was pretty awful at the time that these photos were taken, I believe that this foundation has covered my blemishes quite well considering the hard task presented! I am not wearing concealer in the above photo, just MAC Studio Fix Fluid.
This foundation is described as long wearing with a natural matte finish. I believe that the foundation, on me personally, has a more dewy finish. I do have oily skin so maybe this as something to do with it. This aside it did last all day, the first photo was taken at 11:52 and the second at 17:07, as you can see it hasn’t budged that much but my skin has got quite shiny throughout the day.
The foundation does exactly what I want it to do and it looks good on display. It contains SP15, is oil free and comes in a wide variety of shades.
It costs £19.50 for 30ml plus an extra £3 for the pump which you really do need. Even with the pump it does come in a little cheaper than my favourite Estee Lauder foundation. The main downsides for me are that it is slightly orange toned and my skin does get quite greasy when wearing it all day. Other than that I highly recommend this foundation.
You can buy Studio Fix Fluid here for £19.50.
EDIT : A few people have asked what I use to blend this foundation, I used my good old favourite Sigma F80.
Have you tried this foundation? What is your favourite foundation?
