Hello lovely people 😃😃
Like all my makeup I am quite picky about the foundation I use. That is the one product I dnt like to experiment with. That means I dnt try a foundation without doing research on it !! Guilty !! And that is the reason you have never seen any review about a foundation before on my blog !!
I saw this foundation that I am gonna talk about today, online and the rating was pretty good. I did some research and people were raving about it all over youtube. After a hell lot of video watching and swatch searching I decided to buy it. Now, it was really hard to find the right shade.. because finding foundation shade online is tough.. I prayed to god and decided to go with the shade ‘Warm Sienna’. Its really heart breaking when you get the wrong shade of foundation. So lets get into the details
What the brand claims :
With a soft and suede-like finish, PRO.matte Foundation will have you covered and shine-free all day. Creamy, liquid formula provides smooth and buildable coverage for both day and night time wear. Minimize the appearance of pores and fine lines for an even, soft focus effect. Paraben free formula with added vitamin E, B5 & sunflower oil.
Price – Rs. 1250/-
My thoughts on the product :
Packaging : The foundation comes in a frosted glass bottle which I love !! It gives a luxurious feeling. Another plus point is, it comes with a pump. I love when foundations come with pumps or in squeezy tubes. Gives more control ! The cap is a bit flimsy and comes off easily which makes it not so travel friendly.
Texture/ Formula : This foundation has a cream consistency. Its not too runny. It blends like a dream. But yeah ! since it is a matte finish foundation it tends to dry down pretty fast. So it is better to work in sections and blend quickly. On applied it dries to a satin matte finish and looks like skin. Its pretty darn good guys !
Coverage : It has a medium coverage but you can easily build it up to a full coverage ! It does not look cakey or patchy even if you layer it on. It did not settle into the lines on my face ! Inspite of having such a good coverage the product is quite light weight ! You will not feel like yoh have a full face of cake on ! You know what I mean ! 😛
Shades : The shade range is pretty good for Indian skin tone. But yeah you might face some difficulty finding the right shade online. If you have a LA Girl or Nykaa store near to your locality then you are lucky ! You can go and test the foundation there before making a decision. The shade ‘Warm Sienna’ matches me perfectly. Although I feel it is a tad too warm for my neutral – warm skintone. It can easily make you look bit yellow if are someone who has an undertone similar to mine. Sometimes I mix it with my other foundations that are more towards the neutral side. Or I use a concealer to tone the yellowness down coz I love the finish of this foundation to the core !
Lasting power : The brand claims that this is a longwear foundation. But I never got a chance to wear it for longer than 6 – 7 hrs. After 6 hrs I could see the oil broke through the foundation around my t-zone, but the foundation looked fresh and intact. I being extremely oily it couldn’t hold the sebum in for long. Plus I was traveling and was in a hot climate !
I am in love with this foundation. Even though its a drugstore product, it gives the finish of a high end brand. I use 2 and half pumps to cover my whole face. So its going to last me a long time.
I hope this post was helpful ! Thank you !
