Review: Exactly two years ago, Wet N Wild launched the original Photo Focus Collection. I bought and reviewed the foundation, powder and concealer. I was not a fan of the original collection but when they released this Dewy finish foundation, I was all for it. Even though this does not come in a box package, I love the it is in a glass bottle. I like that it has a spatula; it makes it easier for makeup application, in my opinion. For $6.49, it comes with .95 fl oz; a very close amount to the standard 1 fl oz in the market. It comes with 20 shades which is not bad for a drugstore foundation but I found its undertones more pink than yellow or olive. I wish there were more golden, yellow, warm or olive undertones in this line. I could find the right shade so I bought Cream Beige and Dessert Beige in hopes I can find a good medium. The foundation oxidizes, not too much, but the color change is noticeable. I found that when Cream Beige oxidized, it was a much better match for me than Dessert Beige as it has an orange hue once it oxidized.
I love the finish of this foundation. It is dewy but it does not make my skin look oily or greasy after wearing it for hours. If you follow me on Instagram (@thelovelist1), you may have seen my live check-in upon application and end of day on my stories. It is easy to apply and blend on the skin. I use a Beauty Blender when applying all of my foundations to achieve a lighter coverage and this makes my skin luminous but natural looking. It sinks nicely into the skin versus sitting on top of it. It looks beautiful when layered with powder products such as blush, bronzer or highlighter. I used this foundation by accident while I was testing a new concealer (I typically use a tried and true foundation when testing a concealer) and I was surprised how it performed mixed with another liquid product. Would I recommend this foundation? Absolutely. If you have normal to dry skin like I do, this is a great every day foundation. The only con I have is the shade range, while there are 20 different ones, is not as inclusive as I would like it to be.
