Lately my skin has been a mess. Even though it’s super humid here on the islands, my face has been really dry. I normally use Makeup Forever’s HD foundation in Desert (123) and recently find it feeling very heavy and dry and even looking a bit cakey 😦 I’ve never tried the Face and Body foundation before because I tend to go for a bit more coverage than this can provide. However, I decided to give it a go because I really needed a change. I ended up buying the shade C5 and it is a perfect match to both my skin and MUFE’s 123. I’ve been using this product for the last 3 days and I’m absolutely loving it. It’s super light on my skin which feels noticeably great compared to other foundations. It provides a sheer coverage but it’s buildable and with 2 applications it gave me the coverage that I liked. Here are some of my pro’s and con’s…
Lightweight. It’s been really nice with this hot weather we’ve been having.
Water-based. It leaves a nice dewy finish, I thought I’d look oily but that’s not the case at all, it leaves a very natural finish.
Coverage is buildable. Like I mentioned, it takes me 2 applications to achieve the coverage I need, but one application definitely provides enough coverage for those who don’t need too much.
A little goes a long way. Because of the water base consistency the product goes on so smoothly and applies nicely. It doesn’t dry up in the middle of application.
Using your fingers. This has been the biggest downfall for me because I love using a brush to apply my foundation. With this product you’ll find yourself wasting too much product by applying it with a brush. Your fingers are your best bet.
Longevity. I recommend using a setting powder with this product. I still use my NARS Light reflecting setting powder and it’s worked great.
So there you have it! I highly recommend this product.
