Good matte foundation

Thursday, 14 July 2016

I have somewhat mixed feelings about this foundation. What I like: It’s affordable, it’s matte and does control shine throughout the day without leaving the skin looking lifeless. It has very good coverage, and lasts long without looking patchy. What I don’t like: I find that it blends well only when using a damp beauty blender (when I use my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush it exaggerates my pores by settling in them) and the shade range isn’t too great (I have pale skin and bought the Vanilla shade, but it is quite pink in its undertone so needs some bronzer to bring me back to life). Overall, I don’t regret buying it; I do need an affordable matte foundation, but I’ll probably look for alternatives when this one is finished.
