The BEST Foundation For Oily Skin!
I did a review here on Beautylish about the Revlon ColorStay Foundation in the summer and I said that it was my favorite foundation...I now recant that. This mousse foundation is the BEST foundation for my skin. I have combination oily skin and this foundation mattifies my face like no other; it says matte all day! The texture is so freaking smooth like you can barely tell you are putting on foundation. I think it is super buildable if you want more coverage, but for me I like medium to full coverage because I still want to look somewhat natural and not TOO airbrushed. Lol. I use my L'oreal Paris Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base as a primer undrneath and that helps the foundation last longer. I still would set it with a powder as well and if you have dry skin do NOT get this product because it will make it even more dry! The one thing I have to say you need to be careful for is the cakiness because it IS a mousse which has a cakey consistency all on its own. But if you have the right brush (or fingers) and the right amount of foundation, you will look amazing!
- Price - Availability - Good for oily skin - Mattifies all day
- Cakiness - Not good for flash photography - You are still reading this and not going out to buy it!
The consistency is a little thick, and it could come off looking cakey very easily. I tried applying it with my finger and a foundation brush, but I was a never a huge fan of either method of application. apart from that the shade i own matches my skin tone perfectly, and the foundation left my very oily skin pretty matte all day. I wouldn't recommend this foundation for everyday though as I find it to be a little thick.
