Review: Sol Body is one of my favorite sister brands of Colourpop. I have enjoyed most of their skin and body care releases. If you have been following me for a while on my Instagram (@thelovelist1), you will know that I am in love with their Bronzing Balms, so when they released a face and body makeup product, I was on it. The packaging comes in a nude pink beige box with white typogpraphy, typical of most of their products. It comes in a clear squeeze tube where you can easily see the shade you have and a clear cap.
The consistency is creamy with a slight mousse-like texture. It blends smoothly on the skin and it does give a beautiful natural finish. I have worn this using a mask for a few hours and it did transfer a little bit; but that was the only transfer I had during the whole time I wore the mask. I love that it has skincare ingredients to keep the skin nourished while also providing beautiful coverage. Due to its hydrating ingredients, even though it claims to have a natural soft-matte it still feels and looks comfortable throughout the day. I have a Reel on my Instagram showing how these two different shades were swatched on my arm. It shows how creamy the product is. Now, I picked up two shades because the swatches shown were on the darker side. Medium 10 is the first medium shade and it is a summer shade for me. Light 8 is more like a Medium shade that I can wear throughout the year unless I get darker during the summer. So, just keep that in mind - try to go a shade or two under what you think you should be in, if that makes sense. I do not use body makeup, so this review was based on using this product as a foundation or face makeup. This product has 3 fl oz for $16. It is a massive size but definitely worth it, in my opinion. I highly recommend it.
I am going to try this next week to see if it will actually withstand a full work day wearing a mask since it claims to be transfer resistant and that it lasts all day. I will keep everyone updated on my Instagram stories on whether this passes the all-day mask wearing test.
