I’m pretty sure this is a classic drugstore foundation. Everybody seems to have spoken about it at one time or another. I tried this for the first time recently after hearing plenty of good things, and being on the lookout for a good affordable foundation. That also offers full coverage.
I have the shade 100 Ivory and I find it a little dark, so I add a few lightening drops just to get a better match to my skin. I like my foundations to have full coverage, and this claims to be just that. Do I find it full coverage? Not really. I’d say it’s more of a medium coverage, but it can be built up.
To apply this I use a Real Techniques Expert Face Brush. It applies really nicely and blends easily, even though it is a thick texture. This covers my redness just fine and covers blemishes.
This foundation also has comfort serum which I don’t think the previous version had, so this mist have been revamped somewhere down the line, but as I’ve never looked into this before, I’m not too sure. The comfort serum makes it perfect for dry skin, which is one of the reasons I get along with it really well. It doesn’t cling to dry patches, and doesn’t turn cakey.
Apparently this foundation is supposed to last for 25 hours, but I’ve never had to leave my foundation on for that long. I have worn this from about 7am to 10pm and it has lasted just fine with no touch ups needed.
The packaging is sleek and comes with a pump which is always a bonus, as I really don’t understand why all foundations don’t come with them.

Overall I have been really loving this foundation! I’d say it’s more suited to those with dry skin, so if you have oily skin, it might not work as well.
It costs £7.99 and you can get it from places like Boots and Superdrug!
Have you tried this foundation?
Thank you for reading!
