Product Review | Natasha Denona Face Glow Foundation

Product Review | Natasha Denona Face Glow Foundation in Shade 42 ($42, Sephora and Beautylish)

Product Details (from Sephora's website): A bestselling, lightweight foundation with SPF 15 that offers brilliant staying power and stays looking flawless from day to night. 

This hydrating foundation is suitable for all skin types and will leave your skin with an even, flawless, natural-looking finish. Imparting a glowing, dewy effect, the foundation creates a smoothed and well-hydrated look while providing SPF 15 sun protection. 

Review:  I have been eyeing this foundation for quite a while but it took me a while to bite the bullet and purchase it.  I bought this a few months back when I was on a kick of light coverage and dewy foundations to use for the winter season.  I swatched this foundation at Sephora and it did not give me the excitement factor because it felt too thick and goopy but I also wondered how long the testers have been out and that might have affected the swatch of the product.

In typical Natasha Denona packaging, it comes in a white box with gray/silver typography.   The foundation is in a pearlescent pink tube with a pump and black cap.  The packaging itself is simple and straight forward and product is easy to dispense.  Now, on to the product itself.  If you want glow, this product is no lie.  It will definitely provide your skin great illumination (I have normal skin so this may not be well-suited for my oily skin gals and guys) throughout the day.  It is lightweight and has a natural finish which I love.  However, I find this product quite thick and difficult to apply without streaking when using a brush.  When I use a sponge, it is okay but when I try to do another layer (this is really sheer more than light coverage), it seems to lift the first layer off.  I cannot seem to figure out a way to apply this evenly without having to do a different method each time.  I may need a denser foundation brush to make the product set on the skin evenly.  Until then, I cannot fully recommend this product.  I have normal skin so I may have to really hydrate and prep the skin prior to application to help provide an even application.

Have you tried this foundation? Did it work for you?
