I was very delighted to be selected for the review of this product as I’ve almost always had issues with either colour or sensitivity when it comes to foundation products. The actual demonstration at the make-up counter was long yet informative. I loved the contouring lessons, which is great information for future use. The texture of the foundation is light with an evident moisturising feel. The pump action packaging is great in that it makes application controlled and measurable. I experienced that I needed three pumped applications for full coverage, which I hardly do as I prefer my applications light. Albeit using one application I enjoyed sufficient coverage for a light yet glowing look, which I expect from my foundation.
I have very sensitive skin, so my major point is that it did not give me any breakouts. The foundation has a neutral smell, which is not offensive or overbearing in any way. I do feel though that for my combination skin type, applying the primer prior to the make-up gives it an oilier feel, which is a definite negative for me.
The service that I received at the store was very professional, relaxing and comfortable, but it was mostly informative around valuable lessons in contouring. I have never fostered an interest in Inglot and its brand but the sales consultant did such a great job in informing me about the brand and its origin that I might be converted. The product and brand suits my skin type and the colour matches perfectly. For the price, it is a major competitor in its field.
One additional plus point that I need to add is that the HD foundation gives a more natural glow than a cakey effect, which is such a big deciding factor for me when purchasing my foundation. I don’t often switch brands but in this instance it would be advantageous for me to only do so. It is a great product. I love that the stand alone store contributes to a more personal and intimate feel as opposed to a counter in another store.
