Hello, there gorgeous humans!
You guys know I take reviews seriously because what’s beauty blogging if not sharing our experiences with products. I’m super excited about today’s one because it’s a good one! So sit back, relax and let’s jump in!
What are the claims of this foundation?: This foundation claims to be long-wearing, with an illuminating finish. It also claims to be medium to full coverage and that it will give you a smooth, long-wearing flawless-looking finish.
Does it deliver on these claims?: I believe it does deliver on its claims! It easily gives you medium to full coverage. It’s a very dewy foundation (to some it may seem greasy or that wet kind of dewy look) I personally love it! And it does look smooth and flawless on the skin. Longevity wise – it lasts very well on my skin! Now my skin is dry/dehydrated with an oily t-zone. I can’t guarantee if you have oily skin this will be a long-lasting foundation for you.
Coverage: Medium to full coverage. Very buildable!
Skin types appropriate for this foundation: Dry/dehydrated skin would love this foundation because it’s very hydrating and gives you an ultra glowy look.
Longevity: It lasts really well on my skin! Even when I wore this foundation during the hot summer weather while I may have looked extra shiny because a dewy foundation + weather that makes you sweat like a dog = you looking shiny AF. Even though I’d look on the shiny side after spending the day sweating the foundation itself didn’t wear off or break apart. The shininess is just what happens when you wear a dewy foundation during a heatwave.
Application: I love to apply the foundation using a foundation brush whether it’s a flat type style or more rounded. Then once I’ve applied it with a brush I go over it with a beauty blender.
Packaging: It’s a typical foundation packaging. A clear plastic bottle with a black lid and a pump.
Formula: The formula is on the runny side, not as runny as a watery foundation like the urban decay naked foundation but definitely not thick. It’s super hydrating, blends easily and gives a very dewy foundation.
Pros: It’s hydrating, AFFORDABLE, easy to blend, has a lovely dewy finish and lasts very well on the skin.
Cons: I wish I had access to this brand in-store rather than online but other than that the foundation itself I adore!
Shade range: There are 15 shades in total
Price: $19.40 AUD
How much product are you given?: You get 28 ml just below the average of 30 ml you get in a typical foundation
Rating: 7.5 / 10
Overall thoughts: This foundation is definitely an absolute gem from the drugstore! It covers well, blends well and basically looks incredible on the skin. I will say it’s insanely dewy so if you don’t like super dewy foundations, this may not be for you. I’m even starting to back away from super dewy foundations because I find that my oily t-zone, takes a dewy foundation and makes it look greasy AF in 2-3 hours tops. If you have super dry skin, this will be a foundation you’ll love!
Would I repurchase this?: No. I’m trying to be very very picky with what foundations I repurchase and just purchase in general. As you guys know I’m a bit of a foundation hoarder and it’s gotten to the point where it’s starting to overwhelm me, so I’m trying to rein it in with foundations, especially dewy foundations!
And that wraps up this review! Have you guys tried this LA girl foundation or even the concealer? What were your thoughts? Drop a comment and let’s talk! I hope you all have a wonderful day and I’ll see you in the next post.
