I had been dying to try out this product as a friend who had recently switched to this product said it was good value for money, especially for the times you want some make-up on, but don’t want to waste your best “go to product”. I went to my nearest Dischem and picked myself up a tube of this “must try product”. I was pleasantly surprised by the range of colours and managed to find the one for me.
The next day, I was eager to try it out, as what is a better feeling the opening a new purchase. I squeezed the tube and a lovely creamy liquid was revealed. I was happy with the texture of the product, it was creamy but not too thick, but also not too thin that it would make me feel “naked”. THIS WAS A GOOD SIGN. For this application I used my fingers, it spread in well, however, I did need to apply a small second coat. However, there was a slight downfall from applying this product with my hands, the product wasn’t easy to rinse off the hands (which I thought could be a good sign, as surely this means it would STICK, my ultimate goal) and it took a few pumps of soap and warm water to come off.
Unfortunately a few hours later I realised my dream had not come true, and I was left disappointed, and still in need of finding the product which would last. Within a few hours of wear, my product had faded. It was however still there in some areas, especially under the eyes and on the nose, but the texture had changed, forming into a cakey looking appearance. I can’t describe the appearance but my nose almost looked flaky. You could still kind of see the product on the face, however, it looked worn out and not as smooth as before.
I didn’t let this experience get the best of me, and the next day I tried the product again, using an application brush instead. The end product was the same (smooth finish), however, yet again a few hours later, the same effect.
I feel that maybe this product would suit those with younger looking skin, as maybe due to being in my 30’s, the product didn’t sit the same.
