I am a sucker for cheap anything, ranging from food to makeup. This comes from trying to be money savvy, and living as a student through university. But now that I work and am shortly graduating, I’m looking for worth it investments. So as a typical 20-something woman I glided into Sephora.
Now I am the first to say, I love makeup but I do not know much about it. Kat Von D was an inspiration growing up, paving a way for women and looking badass doing it. So I thought why not try her foundation line?
With 68 colour tones to match with I thought I couldn’t go wrong. So being the money savvy girl I am I made sure to get my skin tone matched, and then went all in and for a higher end foundation – $42.00 wasn’t too painful.
The website claims its creamy and pigmented and a long-wear liquid formula. It is definitely a full coverage foundation, which is much needed when dealing with adult acne or even discolouration. I would be careful with the matte finish, although lovely for people like me with oily skin – would definitely flake on drier types. And to add as bonus, it is vegan and completely cruelty free.
Now for the real test results.
I was told it would best set with a powder, and so being the good student I am I followed suit. I have to say I love this foundation, but I definitely noticed I have to truly prep my face for it – it is not a throw on and go sort of routine. Although typically oily, my chin had flaking bits of foundation on the first test. With a little research and much better preparation however, it continues now to look flawless. And a little really does go a long way, which makes my investment feel well appreciated.
Out of 5 thumbs up? I’d give it 3.5
