|One Heck of a Blot Foundation in 'Fair Enough' + Beauty Blender|
When a foundation says it's long wearing I am always a bit dubious. However, this foundation really does last all day. I was off to London for a full day and had an event to go to in the evening, I applied this foundation at 7am and it lasted pretty much until 10pm. I had to touch up with concealer but other than that my base looked great. I also love the finish this foundation gives. Even though it's marketed towards oilier skins, it doesn't have a solidly matte finish. It's more semi-matte. Meaning that it knocks out any shine but still leaves a dewy finish (especially on the cheeks). I choose to apply this foundation with a beauty blender. I spritz the beauty blender first with a misting spray such as the Lush 'Breath of Fresh Air' Toner Spray to ensure the foundation blends seamlessly into my skin and simultaneously leaves an even dewier finish.
What I don't love about this foundation is very limited. The only issue I have had is that if I do not apply a thicker moisturiser underneath it can look dry in places. However, this issue would be down to your skin type. Like I said, at the moment I am slightly dry therefore I need to add extra moisture to my skin through my skincare. I like to use the 'Million Dollar Moisturiser' by Lush to hydrate my skin beforehand and to add buckets of glow.
To summarise, I would highly recommend this foundation. It's a great one for normal-oily skin types. It's coverage is amazing and it lasts all day. It's a winner in my books! Top Tip: If you find that this formula works well for you, Soap & Glory do a 'One Heck of a Blot Powder' that would work great as an extra layer for those of you who struggle with oiliness.
