Description:

"Our fresh foundation has an anti-shine core.  Its' ultra-light formula is enriched with powders to instantly absorb excess oil.  Controls shine for a natural-looking, flawless finish.  Our first 2-in-1 foundation stick with anti-shine core goes on effortlessly to reveal flawless, lightweight coverage.  Easy to use and perfect for the on-the-go-touch ups."

Review:

So I have oily-combination skin and love trying out new base makeups that claim to keep me shine free all day especially on the T-zone area.  While I'm not really a foundation "stick" person, I thought I'd give this a go anyway due to the small packaging and easy to travel with/carry around design.

First thing I noticed with this foundation stick is that this has a more creamy texture compared to other stick foundations where they can be harder and definitely requires blending with fingers as body temperature helps to 'melt' the foundation making it easier to blend.  Due to the more creamy texture, I can easily blend with a brush which is the method I prefer!

This foundation stick gives a sheer to light/medium coverage - though I would discourage layering it on to try and create a higher coverage as it will look cakey.  Even though it did initially keep me shine free, it doesn't last as long as other matifying foundations.  This may be due to it's sheerer coverage where less powder is deposited so less powder to absorb the oils.  However, it still did a pretty good job lasting around 3-5 hours depending what sort of day I've had.  This also isn't an extremely long wearing foundation, it starts to fad around the same time it stops keeping my oils away, so definitely requires touching up.

Some positives that I've noticed is that it feels soooo lightweight you can barely feel it on your skin, and even though coverage isn't that high, it does even out my skin tone giving me a natural looking finish.

The 2 layer system seems a bit gimmicky to me and shade selection (6 shades available) leaves a lot to be desired, however, overall, this is a good foundation that I would recommend especially for those that just wants a light foundation to even out skin tone and not require a lot of coverage.  Even though this is an anti-shine foundation, I think it's more suited for the oily/combination skin type than those with really oily skin.

Price: £8.99
