I was excited to try this cosmetic line and what even better way to do it during a 50% off sale at Ulta a few weeks ago. It comes in a glossy purple box with silver typography, a glass bottle and a purple magnetic cap to match the whole line's purple theme. It also comes with a pump. I picked up the shade Olive (05) and this is the perfect shade match for me - if my other foundations came exactly in this shade, the world would be perfect.
Let's dive into the claims of this foundation. Since I bought this maybe 3 to 4 weeks ago, I have certainly had enough time to use and have an opinion about this product. It is weightless but it is very pigmented so it will even out your complexion on first application. Now, do not confuse that with full-coverage. However, you can layer this up to a medium coverage (probably even full due to its high pigmentation, but I am not a full-coverage foundation gal so that is something I will not be able to attest to). This really feels nice on the skin. It applies easily and blends smoothly. Because it is a luminous foundation, it is going to provide radiance on the skin but also keeping it hydrated and moisturized. This foundation worked well with silicone, cream and sunscreen infused primers. It did not break apart or move around. I also feel that it has a good longevity, at least 8 - 10 hours, which is what I normally need on a regular work day. I always use a setting spray no matter what foundation I use (I use the Skindinavia brand, in case you are interested) and it really locks in the smooth finish of this foundation.
This has instantly become one of my favorite foundations, especially due to the perfect shade. I wish I had picked up more during the sale but I would sure repurchase this without a doubt and pay regular price.
