I have been trying to get my hands on this for AGES but I couldn’t find anywhere that had the palest shade, Siberia, in stock; that was until recently. I’ve been wearing this foundation pretty much daily since getting my mitts on it so now I can give my honest thoughts on this much raved-about foundation!
Colour: The shade Siberia is the lightest available and is pretty much perfect for my ghostly pale skin. I wasn’t expecting it to match so well; it leaves my skin looking natural, but still leaving me looking glowing rather than a grey-white shade.
Formula/Texture: I’m sure you can see from the images above just how wonderful this foundation is; it covers imperfections perfectly leaving my skintone looking natural, yet even and flawless. The texture is a creamy thick liquid which dries to a nice powder once applied, leaving my skin dewy without being overly greasy looking. I find that it can be a little heavy for hot summer days and my skin does get super oily around mid-day (after applying at 7am in the morning) but a little bit of powder helps this. I do also find that I need to re-apply concealer on problem areas after a while but this isn’t a massive problem as I carry one around anyway.
Price: This retails for £29.50 for 30ml and I’m hoping it’ll last me a while as a little goes a long way.
SPF: This doesn’t contain an SPF which is disappointing but I wear sunscreen daily anyway.
What I Think: I really like this foundation, a lot. I wouldn’t say it is a ‘sheer’ foundation at all, I think of it as being more of a satin-matte foundation with buildable coverage. This is a pricey product and it took me a very long time to decide whether I wanted to invest in this, but I’m very glad I did.
I also have the Sheer-Matte foundation which I will be reviewing and comparing shortly!
