Wearing makeup during the hotter months can always be challenging without the right formula. A freshly applied makeup look can slide right off in under an hour, if the right products aren’t used. If you have oily skin, that time can be cut in half!
Good thing one of my favourite brands, Makeup For Ever, has launched a new Matte Velvet Skin Full Coverage Foundation
($48). The foundation comes in a handy squeeze tube bottle perfect for getting the right amount each time. The foundation comes in 40 different shades, and I tried shade Y455
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve heard of Rihanna’s new makeup line, Fenty Beauty. The line includes highlighters, primers, and of course, the fan favourite foundation with a whopping 40 shades for people of all colours. The foundation has been getting rave reviews from beauty bloggers, magazines, and everyday beauty lovers alike.
The foundation has medium coverage (buildable to full coverage) with a matte finish, and an oil-free formula. It also comes with 32ml of foundation instead of the traditional 30ml.To ensure that you’ll be matte for the whole day, the foundation is made with “climate-adaptive” technology resistant to sweat and humidity.
I received the foundation in Shade 370 which is a perfect match for my skin. When I first put on the foundation, I found it to be very natural looking on the skin, so it wasn’t very obvious that I was wearing foundation. The matte finish was also very nice, and made my skin very smooth. My favourite thing about this foundation is how long wearing it is.
I can definitely say that this is now my go to foundation when I know I won’t have time for touch-ups. I have worn it now about 3 times for 12 hour days, and to my surprise, when I come home my makeup still looks freshly applied.
I can’t wait see how this foundation performs in the summer months, but for now it will be great for holiday parties!
Fenty Beauty is available at Sephora
