I've been looking into a new foundation. I don't need a lot of coverage and want something that is friendly to my skin. I figured: either mineral, or liquid.
My order of some Alima Pure samples arrived at home back in the U.S. so mommy is sending them over :-)
In the meantime, I looked into Sisley Paris. Both the Transmat foundation and the tinted moisturiser have beautiful texture, but I didn't like some of their ingredients. Next.
Since I like my Giorgio Armani high precision re-touch concealer so much, I decided to take a look at their foundations.
Along the lines of wanting something natural and easy to apply, I checked out the Face Fabric Second Skin Nude Makeup with SPF 12.
I like the tube packaging which means no mess. The texture is buttery. As I smoothed it over the back of my hand, the product just blended beautifully.
I've been wearing this foundation for over a week, and am very happy with it.
It goes on matte, and as the day goes on, it becomes more luminous, not oily. I've had it on literally from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. The colour remained fresh and true all day long.
I primed with Shu Uemura UV base first. Then, I warmed up a pea-sized amount of product on my finger tips and spread it all over my face. The texture is so beautiful that no application skill is required!
Then, I applied two layers of Make Up For Ever HD powder over the foundation to make it last.
Here I used a matte pink blush. On my lips is Bobbi Brown Lipshine in Toffee.
A closer look at the Giorgio Armani foundation right after application. It's a perfect matte and a perfect shade (#1). What more do I want?!
My only concern is whether this foundation can take the humid heat during summer. Has anyone used this product before?
