I decided to do this review before making a decision as to whether I was going to throw this out. I'm sure the reasons for my decision will become more apparent as I write this review.
I bought this foundation after hearing so many great things about it on blogs and YouTube videos. This was technically my very first high-end foundation as well as my first liquid foundation purchase so you can tell I already had quite expensive taste! I was lucky enough to come across this when I stumbled upon a Sephora when I was visiting my friend's city in Spain.
I managed to match my skin (albeit, all wrong) to Shade 125 and I really loved using it when I got back to Scotland. The coverage is really good. It has that fine line between being too heavy coverage and not enough coverage and has a buildable formula so that you can control how much you want to apply. It possesses the amazing ability to not be too heavy on your face but you're still aware of it being there. From there, for me, it all goes downhill.
I'm quite stingy when it comes to using up make-up because I spent so much money on it, I was worried I was going to run out. I rationed it to the point where I just stopped using it. Probably not a great idea as I can truthfully say that I bought this back in the Summer of 2010 (I can hear you all say 'ewwwwww' in the background!) As a HD foundation, I thought that it would look amazing in photographs but I experienced severe 'ghost-face' on a recent night out where I risked using it again. A lovely reader suggested mixing in with a darker foundation but I realised that I don't have a darker foundation to mix it in with (fail).
I'm on the absolute verge of throwing it out! I truly believe that this is unsalvageable! In saying that, I would definitely re-purchase it again if I come across it but I would love to speak to a sales assistant about it first before parting with my hard earned cash!
What do you think about this foundation? Am I going about it in the wrong way?
