This foundation has some good and some bad. Lets start by discussing what it claims to do. First it claims to be lightweight. …

image

It is a thick liquid constancy that blends out easily and indeed is lightweight.  Not light enough to forget you have foundation on, but not heavy at all. It also claims to soften fine lines and wrinkles. My fine lines are under my eyes and this product settled right in them. So I could only imagine if I had lines on any other parts of my face , it would crease like crazy. As far as the finish being a natural dewy finish,  I could agree except for the fact that the color is very red toned. Once it sets, it get a little redder and looks like a kind of unnatural color unless you counteract the color with bronzer and yellow tone high light and powder. The cover is medium to full, but I would not build it up to avoid looking like a tomato. ..lol.
When wearing this product both times, I can say it lasted allday, even though it seems to transfer easily. My best recommendation on wearing this would be to conceal and high light first, then apply foundation wear you would need coverage after that. This way you minimize the unnatural all over color, and the red tones in this foundation would actually compliment your skin tone.
I really do like the finish.  You just have to work with adjusting the color.

The packaging is a squeeze out tube. No pump, so be careful not to squirk out to much.

Overall I would only recommend this product to someone who has red in their complexion or someone who knows how to color correct to make the foundation color look more natural. I dont totally love it but I don’t hate it either.  I guess I am still on the hunt for the perfect foundation. …. so until next time..

Recent Target Mini Haul

I went to Target the other to get some household items, but as usual I found myself in the makeup isles. My Target has expanded its makeup department by adding some new brands and increasing there existing ones. One of the new brands they have is Shea Moisture. Shea Moisture,  to the best of my knowledge was mostly hair and body care. But now the have makeup that ranges from light to deep dark shades of foundation and bronzer as well as eyeshadow,  blush, lipstick and gloss. I opted just to pickup 2 eyeshadows.

They were $4.99 each and are pan only. Which I did know , but I assumed they were magnetized and could just go in my Mac palette. NO, you have to purchase the container or a palette separately. I think for the individual eyeshadow compact it’s $1.99 and the palette was $5.99 or $6.99. This is kind of annoying,  but if I love them then I will make it work.

I also picked up some Sonia Kashuk makeup. Sonia Kashuk, as far as I know is exclusive to Target and very popular for there good quality inexpensive makeup brushes. They also have makeup. Unfortunately I haven’t had a lot of luck in the makeup department with them as far as foundation,  concealer goes due to limited color range. But I have had success with there blush and brozners. So I went ahead and picked up a blush/ bronzer duo and a glow powder.

Both are beautiful , especially the blush duo. The glow powder may look chalky in the swatch above but it is not. I swatched it heavily to photograph it. Iam. Were both today and will upload pics of it on me later in a review.
