What we say:
As I have an oily skin it’s become second nature for me to apply powder after my foundation, as this is really the only way I manage to keep shine at bay. I bought this product from The Body Shop a couple of years ago, and I loved it so much that by now I have gone through quite a couple of them.
It’s extremely handy as it is a foundation and powder in one, meaning you get the coverage of a regular foundation but as it is matte, you don’t have to apply any powder over it. My skin matches shade 3 perfectly and I can say that the product lasts all day long without running or fading. I also find that my skin stays matte for a long time before a bit of shine starts to creep in. I’ve learnt not to layer this product though as more than one layer quickly looks thick and cakey, so when I need to, I use blotting tissues instead.
I think this foundation will work well for anyone who has oily or combination skin, but if your skin is dry you may want to use a hydrating liquid foundation instead, as the powdery texture of this product doesn’t work well with dry or flaky skin.
