Liquid-Powder Foundation, not only for oily skin
5 Ways I (attempt to) Manage the Crazy
Hourglass will occasionally send me products to try out and give feedback on, and their Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation came last week or so. As I read about it I assumed it wouldn’t be a great option for me since my skin isn’t considered oily. But I gave it a shot anyway and I was immediately impressed.
This isn’t a sponsored post, by the way, and the product was gifted with no strings attached.
It provided really great coverage that didn’t look super heavy. And it melted into my skin! The foundation to beat, in my book, is Arbonne’s Perfecting Liquid Foundation (which I still love, but I also love trying new things), and this may have done it. I don’t know how it does it, but it doesn’t build up around my nose like the Arbonne foundation sometimes would. I just assumed that would be an issue I have for life.
It required zero touch ups, and I think that is because of the oil-absorbing factor of it. I can see how it can feel a touch drying, so I use just a dab more of the Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve face cream before I apply.
The only weird thing, that I’ve never had happen with foundation before, is it left a yellow coloring behind on my hands after I applied it. In fact, I looked at my hands before I washed them (something I do every time I apply foundation) and thought,”what in the world just happened”, it was so yellow. Oddly, it didn’t show up yellow on my skin in the least! It may only be the Shell shade I’m wearing, or perhaps it was a reaction to leftover lotion I had on my hand. Either way, it washed right off and is a non-issue now.
This made me really want to try the L’Oreal Magic Nude foundation, just to compare the two. Have you tried either?
