So I have a story with this product.
I first decided to buy online at John Lewis because I was so excited to try it. You can tell I’m excited to try something when I don’t even get a tester or try it in the shop. So, I used the online options to pick a shade:
So I picked a shade 3.5 for next day delivery. Of corse 3.5 looked like my shade on the above picture! I was so excited to open it and then extra disappointed when I tried it. Firstly it was a good 3/4 shades too light for me. Secondly it made me feel really dry – even mixed with a darker foundation and with a hydrating primer. And I hated it. I returned it 3 days later because I was so unhappy and thought it was all a hype. I was so upset with myself. What a waste of £29.
But I didn’t loose hope…
One day out shopping with Ava I went past an Urban Decay stand. I stopped to look and test a few eye shadows and highlighters and could help expressing my experience to the lady at the counter. She convinced me that I could make it work with the right shade. So I re-purchased. This time in shade 6.
And I’m so happy I did! This is my new go to for full coverage. It doesn’t make me look or feel dry anymore and it covers almost everything! It’s my favourite full coverage foundation discovery since Estée Lauder.
It’s matte but doesn’t make my face look flat and it stays on all day – result. I haven’t found a foundation that stays on all day (that doesn’t make me break out) for a long time. It doesn’t have any strong scents and doesn’t feel heavy on my skin, keeping me flawless all day.
If you go for a full coverage look then this is for you. Even if you only go full coverage in evenings or nights out, I recommend. Worth it!
Packaging is pretty too:
I’m so in love with this despite the fact I had a hard time with it at first. I will repurchase this again and again until I find better.
Thank you Urban Decay! 💕
