Maybelline – Dream Matte Mousse


This is one of those legendary products that have been around for years, everyone and their mama has either used it or at least have known about it, me included but this is truthfully the first time I’ve bought this….

The reason is very simply that the original shade line always consisted of medium shades with a strong warm undertone.

So you can imagine my surprise when I was at the drugstore and saw this. This new shade is called 02 Fair and it is very weird when you compare it to the rest of the line as it seem to be five shades lighter.

I have been looking for  a new matte foundation as I sometimes feel the need to change my usual routine occasionally. Instead of buying an old favourite of mine I decided to take a chance with Maybelline.

I’ve had this in my cabinet for five months and I’ve tested it properly out.


What is Maybellines’s claims about this foundation?

  • This long-lasting foundation features exclusive silky matte powder spheres that glide evenly onto the skin for a flawless, soft-focus 16-hour matte finish. Dermatologist tested. Allergy tested. Non-comedogenic. Suitable for all skin types. Suitable for sensitive skin.




This is where I have some mixed feelings.

The foundation comes in a glass jar and I do worry about the possible hygiene + the fact that this also means that the foundation comes in contact with a lot of air. Which can possibly lead to the foundation not only becoming a breeding ground for bacteria but also dry out very easily.

This is easily partially subverted by using a spatula or spoon to get the product out.

In itself I think the packaging does not look bad nor cheap, I actually like how the lid is colour coded and I like that it feels heavy in my hands.

The jar contains 18 ml of product.




You can clearly see how it sits atop the skin.

The shade is the lightest in the line and is called 02 Fair.

For my skin tone this is light enough but the undertone is a bit too neutral for me, it makes me look a little bit flat and tired. Plus the “primer” part of the formula gives me  a white cast in certain lights.

But that does not mean that the shade is bad as I know there are a lot of people out there who has requested that brands feature more pale foundations with neutral or warm undertones as it is more common with pale foundations to feature a cool undertone.

I believe this foundation will be a great addition for you if you are pale with neutral undertones.




The first impression of this foundation as I scooped it out of the jar was that it felt really velvety and that this could possibly become a new holy grail.

Before I applied it to my face I had already primed it even though this foundation claims to already have a priming effect in the formula. I decided to apply it first with my fingers before buffing it out with a finishing brush.

The result left much to be desired. For some very weird reason this made my cheeks look very textured and the most difficult area on my face for this foundation was my nose area which looked like it wanted to flake off.

To “fix” this I actually had to wet my finishing brush and wipe most of the foundation of the nose and spritz my beloved Isadora face mist on multiple times over the entire face to make this look good.

The next time I used this I tried it with a beautyblender and the result were almost the same.

My issue is that this foundation just slides on top of your skin and it never settles down or blend into your skin. It is also difficult to remove.

The coverage is also not that great.

The worst part was that after one hour I looked greasy…

I just can’t understand that since I rarely get oily when I wear foundations.

My skin has never reacted like this to any base product especially not in the way that this made my skin look more flawed than it looks like without any makeup.

My camera had difficulty capturing how this looks on my skin and in lack of proper daylight during the winter month’s it is notoriously difficult to take a good picture. I also decided to not wear anything but the foundation as to showcase the full effect it gives. As you can see my skin looks incredibly dry and flat.





To be honest this is not a new favourite of mine.

It’s not only that the shade is wrong but also that despite being advertised as a foundation for people with combo/oily skin it still highlights drier areas and does not do enough to hide imperfections or texture. Actually this foundation made me see flaws I don’t see when I’m not wearing any makeup….

I’m really surprised that a foundation that is claimed as the most sold in the world and that has been on display for at least almost a decade is this bad.

It is actually one of the super rare instances where I can’t understand  why anyone would enjoy this.

I truly felt that this foundation was demanding as it required both upkeep and a specific application method, it just became a hassle for me to use this and I did really experiment with it since I wanted to love it so badly.



Mamonde – Highlight Liptint Glow


This is the first product from Mamonde that I’ve had the pleasure to try out.

This liptint is an oil drop tint which is supposed to be long-lasting and give vivid colour while still being light weight, non-sticky and give moisture to lips.

This line of liptints feature seven shades ranging from pink, red, orange and purple.

I picked #17 Lavender Breeze.

So let’s dive into it!




I have to mention how I love the cardboard’s holographic floral pattern combined with the simple design.

The liptint itself is contained within packaging that correlates with the shade (At least based from what i could see on pictures) which is a detail that I appreciate that brands do.

To be honest I like the packaging, it is very sleek and simple but it also reminds me of some packaging from the 2000s for some reason. It’s not a negative as it to me feels very nostalgic and it’s not tacky or cheap despite being made of lightweight plastic.


I really love the applicator and it is impressive in my opinion. It is a scoop shaped applicator which makes it super easy to get an even application as it is shaped to fit your lips and it also helps that it is extremely soft.

I really enjoy the simple packaging and the lovely applicator.




The swatch photos came out blurry but they still present the shade as it looks in IRL.


As previously mentioned I picked the shade called #17 Lavender Breeze.

It has been a long time since I’ve had a true purple lip product in my makeup collection. If you are after a true lavender shade then you will be disappointed with this as it is more of a boysenberry kind of purple.

It’s a medium purple with lot’s of pink in it and it is amazingly flattering.

I also believe it will suit a lot of different skin tones as it is a vivid but still has a transparent consistency.




I really love the formula of this liptint.

It feels lightweight on the lips aswell as moisturizing and non-sticky. I also love how shiny it is without looking tacky or cheap.

The bonus is that it is really long-lasting and it fades beautifully during the day and leaves a gorgeous stain behind.

Lastly this liptint have a wonderful scent of fresh strawberries which is not the typical artificial strawberry scent that products usually have.

This liptint do uphold all the claims the brand has claimed.




I’ve used this a lot lately not only because it looks gorgeous beyond belief but also since it is so suitable for this time of the year.

I believe this is starting to become a new favourite for me as I’ve used it so much lately.

It reminds me of the discontinued Aritaum: Color lasting tint which was a favourite of mine only that this liptint is much lighter in texture.

Yes I will recommend this for to people, especially those that struggle with dry lips after using a liptint.


Aromaleigh: Laluna Supernatural Shimmer Powder Trio


These three highlighters are among my holy grail products.

These are formulated to be used as multi purpose powders for strobing, all over face and body.

These are available in two sizes:

Sample bags containing 1/4 teaspoons of product.

Regular size jar containing ca 7 grams net weight of product.

As always highlighters are notoriously difficult for me to photograph, so please keep in mind that these are much more beautiful in person than in my swatch photos.




I just want to say that nowhere in the description of these powders are there any indication that they are formulated to be lip/eye safe but neither are there any warnings against such use. Therefore I feel that it would have been highly unethical of me to not mention it in this review. Personally I have kept my usage of these products to face and body just to be safe.


Laluna Lustre

Official description:

Laluna Lustre is a very fine, silky powder that slightly lightens your skin and gives you a luminous gleam. It’s the most subtle of the trio, but personally, I feel that it gives the most interesting effect because it is so finely milled that your skin becomes radiant with an iridescent glow. This makeup is especially dramatic when applied to your face, especially if you have pale, smooth skin- this makeup actually makes your skin look like glowing moonstone, or marble.

This is the most subtle one of the trio and for me this is my favourite everyday highlighter.

It is formulated with a pearly white base and the shimmer is extremely finely milled which combined makes this a glowy but still subtle highlighter.

As Aromaleigh mentions this can lead this to slightly lighten skin, this is not an issue when I use it as a regular highlighter but whenever I use this as an all-over face powder I can definitely see that it does give a slight lightening effect.

It does give a very interesting effect and the description from Aromaleigh is very spot on. It gives a very ethereal vibe to any makeup look I’m sporting.

This is a perfect highlighter for pale cool-toned skin but I do believe that other skin tones will look good with it aswell, it is more about people’s taste than anything else.


Laluna Sparkle

Official description:

Laluna Sparkle contains distinct shimmering iridescent glimmers. In the sunlight or under bright light, it shimmers like radiant tiny diamonds. Apply over skin that you have applied lotion to (preferably with a high SPF, of course!), the effect is even more pronounced, and the product will stay longer on your skin. Twilight Sparkle may slightly lighten your skin, but it is formulated to be suitable for many skintones, in a transparent base.

This has larger shimmer particles compared to Lustre and yes it does look like tiny diamonds when it is applied on skin, actually it reminds me of a long discontinued product from Nivea from when they still produced makeup.

I sometimes use this on my cheekbones when I want to have a more “dramatic” look but in general I do prefer to use this on my body and in particular on my décolleté if I’m wearing a dress or a top.

It really does give an eye-catching effect that is gorgeous but avoids going into the tacky or cheap connotation that products like these often can.

The swatches are taken in different lightning conditions but the sparkles are far more vivid in irl especially when its sunny.


Laluna Dazzle


Official description:

Laluna Dazzle provides the most intense borealis iridescent sparkle on your skin. Dazzle sparkles beautifully even under indoor lights, and simply, well… “Dazzles” in the bright sunlight. Wear this one when you *want* to be noticed. Apply over skin that you have applied lotion to (preferably with a high SPF, of course!) and the effect is more pronounced and the product will stay longer on your skin. This formula contains pure mineral makeup shimmer in a transparent base, so it can be used on a variety of skin tones.

This one is the queen of sparkles and definitely not an everyday-look item, but it is one of those items that I just need to have in my makeup collection.

Just as with Sparkle this is one that I mostly enjoy using on my body and décolleté but I have on occasion used it on my cheek bones. It gives such a gorgeous but dramatic look that makes me feel ethereal and beautiful.

Just so I have put it out there, I actually sometimes use this beneath my eyes which might not sound like a great idea but is in fact very beautiful in my opinion+it helps hiding away dark under eye circles. This is only in combination with a dramatic eye look and a good concealer.

Of these three formulas this is also the one with the “thinnest” consistency, if it even makes sense of me saying that.

Since it is the only one formulated with a transparent base it might also be more forgiving towards a wider range of skin tones.



I love these highlighters.

They are silky and easy to use, the formula of each of these three are just perfect in my opinion.

I can feel safe recommending these to people but I want to add that it might be a good idea to order a sample if you are unsure since they do have the tendency to slightly lighten skin, something not everyone will like.





Isadora: Get The Glow Collection

IsaDora: isadora; make-up; smink; cosmetic; kosmetik

This collection was released shortly after the main summer collections from my favourite drugstore brand Isadora, this is a much more playful collection compared to earlier releases the last two years which is something I talked about in my review of Isadora Summer Collection 2017 – Blue Bliss.

Which brings me to something else about this collection, it is in my opinion a mini collection with adding products from existing lines and a few products that are “variations” of existing products, personally speaking I like it when brands do that since I believe that if you already have a formula that is well-loved and popular then why not extend the product line?

This collection contains five nail polishes, six lip glosses, a lip glitter and a highlighter palette.

I bought the items I found interesting.


Gloss Glace  3-D Mirror Shine

Picture 619.jpg

This product line has been out for a while now but for this collection they came out with new shades.

I bought the shade 26# Iridescent Glow.


Description from Isadora:

Cover your lips with a glaced gloss effect and 3-D shine!

Gloss Glace  is a moisturizing lip gloss with a plumping effect that will visually make your lips look fuller.

  • 3-D Mirror shine.
  • Plumping.
  • Moizturising.
  • Long-lasting.
  • No transfering.
  • Easy and quick application.

Contains 16 ml e 0.54 oz of product. This is free from perfume and is clinically tested.


My opinion

I’m not a huge fan of lip gloss even though I like the look they can give.

Last year I bought the lip gloss set from H&Ms Global Fusion Collection and I really did enjoy those shimmer glosses as they were non-sticky and comfortable to wear which made me more curious about glosses.

This lip gloss is very intense on the lips. I enjoy this colour as it has a really intense blue iridescence and lilac shimmers, which is strangely flattering in my opinion and definitely makes this for me a very unique shade for me as I have nothing similar in my makeup collection.

It looks much more intense and iridescent in real life than in my pictures below.

When it comes to the claims Isadora has about this lip gloss, I’m not entirely sure if I can completely agree. It does slightly fulfill those claims but not in an extraordinary way

It does have a mirror like shine, I’ve never had a lip gloss this shiny before and yes, since it is a tube the application is neat and clean. But it is not completely transfer proof but it’s definitely long-lasting, more so than most lip glosses and not extremely sticky either.

It is a lip gloss that is very comfortable to wear and I really like the look. It has a very faint vanilla smell which derives from the aroma Isadora has listed in the ingredients list.

Loose Lip Glitter


This was one of the items I was the most excited about as it was among the standouts of this collection.


Description from Isadora:

Loose lip glitter which gives an iridescent and holographic effect. It has a weightless feeling that is comfortable and it can be used on top of any lipstick or lip gloss but also on other parts of the face and body. It is also easy to remove.

Contains 5 grams of product.


My opinion


I’ve used cosmetics glitters in the past but what makes this one stand out in for me is that it features an intense iridescence but is still very comfortable to wear since it does not give the “sand grains” feeling on the lips.

The glitter particles are made of different colours such as lilac, green, blue and orange which combined with the iridescence, creates a very bright effect and contributes to the extreme sparkle this product has.

I’ve used a lip balm below in the swatch photos.

Picture 637Picture 640Picture 638


Face Glow Prisma Wheel

Picture 616.jpg

This is the star of the collection and probably the item I was most eager to get my hands on. I do have many “coloured” highlighters in my makeup collection but I just had to get my hands on this.

These are also eye safe.



Description from Isadora:

Iridescent facial powder in five pearly shades. Can be used alone or be mixed together for a special effect.

Contains 18 grams of product. Fragrance free and clinically tested.



My opinion:


I have to be honest in that I feel the formula is not among the greatest that I’ve tried, it is a little bit chalky and the fall-out can be immense and truthfully I am a bit disappointed by that especially since the last “face wheel” I tried from Isadora had a silky and buttery formula.

But I have found myself using this quite often lately, because yes it has its cons but I still find this product incredibly enjoyable to use. It is also very practical when traveling.

These were extremely difficult to photograph btw and they look much more vibrant in real life than in the swatch photos below.


Since none of the shades is given a separate name, I’ll start with the purple shade in this palette and go clockwise.


The first shade of the wheel is a medium purple with a cool undertone. In the pan it also looks to have a hint of both blue and grey, to be honest this one did not excite me as I already have two purple highlighters in my makeup collection and it looked too muted to look good on me.

But it is flattering on skin since this turns into a purple highlighter with an intense blue iridescence running through it depending on the light source. It is a gorgeous shade that I feel I will use a lot in the future specifically as a blush topper.






I initially thought the second one would be a regular silvery highlighter, these shades are usually the ones who go best with a pale complexion but I already own highlighters like this so I really did think that this one would remain mostly unused.

Boy was I wrong!

This one is the least subtle of the highlighters, it’s the only metallic highlighter in the wheel and combined with the iridescence it is one intense highlighter. It is so intense that I rarely use it on my cheekbones since it often becomes too much for my taste.

It also lightens the area it is applied to.

But I do really enjoy this one more than I initially expected.





The third one looked like a subtle beige highlighter in the pan, it even looks a little bit boring and not like it would pack much of a punch.

On skin however this is the highlighter that I didn’t knew I needed in my life, this is a stunning highlighter with the pink duochrome effect on a shimmery beige background and it does contain a small amount of micro-glitters.

It gives a “glow from within” effect on my skin.

Usually the only highlighters that looks “natural” on me is the pale white/silvery ones but I am happy to have come over a highlighter that falls outside that without looking muddy on me.


This swatch came out as more cool-toned than it really is.




The next one in the wheel is a darker version of the last one and I love using it as a blush topper.

It is too dark for me to use as a highlighte ron my nose or cupids bow but I really enjoy it as it gives a subtle warmth to any blush I’m sporting. It is really lovely as it’s not over bearing on even my skin tone.

It has the same pink duochrome as the last one but on a peachy background and I feel this one is going to be perfect for people with medium, tan or even deeper skin tones. It’s gorgeous!





The last one is my least favourite to be honest.

It is a minty green that will look bomb on a lot of people but I don’t feel it suits my skin tone that well.

When I try this out I feel that it makes me look very sick, which I find sad since the shade itself is very beautiful and I’d wish I could have pulled it off.




Nail Glow

These are welcome in my makeup collection.

I bought two of these, namely shades #843 Aqua Glow and #842 Lilac Glow.


Description from Isadora:

Get glowing and iridescent nails with these nail polishes! These come in five different shades and you apply these with two coats or more depending on the wished effect.

Contains 6 ml of product. Clinically tested.


My opinion:

If you are looking for something opaque then you need to look elsewhere, these polishes are more for effect or on top of other nail polishes.

They are lovely in their own right but frankly not super special in my opinion, I believe I have a Depend nail polish somewhere with a similar effect but it needs to be said that I enjoy these since they do have a lovely glowy effect but also dries quite fast.

These are an extension of Isadora’s wide brush line, which means that the brush are more of a rectangular and wide shape which makes it easier to avoid a streaky application.

I really enjoy these and I believe they will look gorgeous if you are out and about during night-time.


#843 Aqua Glow


This one is a lovely shade with teal and light blue iridescent shimmers with some hint of lilac iridescence.

Depending on the light source it really does glows but it looks boring in broad daylight.

It also lasts sufficiently long.

I like it when I apply it in three coats.




#842 Lilac Glow


This was the one I was the most excited about but for some strange reason it never lasts longer than two days, which is weird since the other shade lasts almost a week before starting to crack.

I like the shade but since it takes three coats before I like the look, it just becomes a waste of time for me to apply this.





I love this collection as it is very playful and unique from a drugstore brand.

There were products with some cons but overall I am very impressed with this collection and I do hope that Isadora release more playful collections as they have done very well lately.


What do you think?

Is this something you’d personally wish more brands released?


TonyMoly – Inked Cushion Liner


This is a newish release from TonyMoly which features the cushion trend.

According to TonyMoly this cushion eyeliner is supposed to give  a feather light and ink-like application thank to its liquid-gel formula. It’s also supposed to be easy to apply with no clumping or dragging across the eyelid.

It comes in  five shades: black, brown, pearl brown, plum wine and olive black.


I bought the black version so let’s see how it worked out.




This is one of the few times I am mesmerized by a products packaging alone.

I’m very firmly set in the belief that packaging can be cute/practical/sophisticated and I will appreciate it but the product itself will always be what I care about in the end.

This is shaped like a classical ink bottle with a feather quill. It is definitely an item that  will look good on your vanity.

The quill is actually an included eyeliner brush and the cushion eyeliner itself is revealed when you twist the bottom half off.

I also like the fact that this packaging is sturdier than I initially expected and I give a huge plus for the included brush.

It contains 2 grams of product.




This is where I got really disappointed.

I don’t like giving bad reviews of products but unfortunately I cannot give this eyeliner any props.

Despite the claims that Tonymoly has about this eyeliner I felt that it was difficult to use. What I mean by that is that it dries too fast and it really tugged on my eyes making it difficult to apply properly.

I initially thought it might have something to do with the included brush but I experienced the same deal with my regular eyeliner brush.

I also did not like how the formula settles, it gives a very plasticky looking liner that looks very cheap and combined with how difficult it is to apply I end up with what best can be described as wonky results.

The cushion itself also dried up after a month despite the packaging saying that you can use this for up to six months before it’s expired.

I did try to use this in many of my looks but I always ended up using another eyeliner on top in order to make it look even and decent.

Another thing that irked me was that I had to dip my brush quite a lot in order to make a line, which means that the cushion was open to air longer than I would like and it might have contributed to it drying up.




This will not be rebought.

Again I don’t like writing reviews that are this negative since even though I have written negative reviews before I always manage to have some good things to say about  a product or at least an understanding that it might be great on someone else.

The same goes for products I absolutely love, I can understand why they might not be someone elses cup of tea and I do my best to include that in a review with giving as much details of a product as possible.

This eyeliner on the other hand I can’t see how it could work on anyone.

It’s not that expensive in itself but when I compare the price and the fact that it dried up very quickly, it becomes evident that it is expensive compared to what you actually get.

The packaging is beyond gorgeous but I’d really wish I could say the same about the content aswell since I did have really high hopes for this.


Have you tried this?

What did you think about it?


URBAN DOLLKISS: Urban City Real Liptone Tint

51rmouspsilThis is another offering from Urban Dolkiss’s Urban city line.

This liptint comes in five different shades including pink, orange and red.

The claims about this liptint is that it is moisturizing and gentle to dry lips, has a refreshing texture and taste with no stickiness, it also is supposed to give the wearer a vivid lip colour with comfort.

Among the ingredients are pomegranate extract, rose hip fruit oil, macadamia seed oil and safflower oil.

These ingredients drew me in to buy this as I do suffer from notoriously dry lips and I do love the effect that liptints give but they can also be very drying in my experience.

I bought the shade NO.5 Rosewood which is a red with some slight hint of brown undertones. It is neither warm nor cold and I think it is going to suit a wide range of skin tones.



The packaging is adorable and it follows the same cues as the URBAN DOLLKISS Urban City Fresh Blown Eau De Parfum packaging in that the contents are in a glass bottle shaped like an apple with a metallic plastic cap.

The applicator is not of the doe foot kind but more “paddle shaped” which combined with the short length of the handle might make it a bit difficult to apply but the trick is to start on the center of the lip and spreading the tint to the sides and to use the remaining product on the upper lip. The applicator has a tendency to collect a lot of the product.


The bottle contains 7 grams of product.

I also like the card box the product comes with since it makes it easy to discern the shade from the others.



The first thing I notice is the fresh but mild scent this product has. It is a non-offensive fruity floral scent that I think a lot of people are going to like.

Compared to a lot of liptints I’ve tried in the past this has a very creamy consistency and it does feel very moisturizing on the lips. I’ve found myself reaching for this when I want some colour on my lips but they are dry and if I’d worn something else it would have aggravated my chapped lips.

This does not highlight chapped lips but it makes them look healthy and hydrated.

It is also extremely opaque and pigmented compared to a lot of liptints out there, not that it is always a trait that I want in a liptint but I’m just highlighting how this product differs from a lot liptints on the market.

It also leaves a very beautiful stain so you don’t have to reapply it often.



I really like this shade as it is different from the usual reds I wear.

It is more down toned than the true reds and the bluish red I often gravitate towards and I think that with the formula it makes this a very sophisticated colour on the lips.

I also think that it will work well on different skin tones.




I can whole heartedly recommend this to anyone and especially towards people with dry lips.

The formula is one of the best ones out on the market and most importantly it makes lips look healthy and hydrated.

I will definitely rebuy this one day and I’m interested in buying some of the other shades.


Thank you so much for reading and I hope you loved this post!



The Body Shop: Fresh Nude Foundation

According to The Body Shop this foundation is enriched with English rose-water and organic aloe vera. It is supposed to be a hydrating formula with a light to medium coverage and a semi matte finish, it has an spf of 15 and leaves the skin hydrated for 24 hr with comfort and without the mask feeling. It also comes in 16 shades inspired by nature. It is a foundation that is suitable for all skin types including sensitive according to The Body Shop.

But do these claims hold up?

Let’s take a look!


Now before I go into this review I want to state that I have used this foundation since April 2016, which makes this review long overdue but at least you can say that this is one product that has been fully tested out 😉



This foundation comes housed in a glass bottle with a pump, something I do prefer since it is more hygienic. It also feels heavy in my hand when I hold it up but I’d really wish that the cap was made from something else than black thin plastic as it does feel flimsy compared to the rest.

It contains 30 ml of product which I feel is a very average amount for foundation.

I feel this bottle has an understated elegance about it which is usually the look I like in makeup packaging.

Picture 504


Compared to a lot of liquid foundations I’ve tried through the years, this has a very runny consistency and the pigments in this is very finely milled which is something I prefer in a foundation since it does give a very natural result and is very easy to work with.

Picture 507

Here you can clearly see the consistency of this foundation.

The closest foundation this reminds me of is the Maybelline Superstay Better Skin, not that says a lot really since they are quite different in texture and finish but it is the closest foundation I can compare it to.

I enjoy the floral scent it has, it is mild and non- abrasive but fresh.

Picture 506

When it comes to the claim about 24hr of hydration, I just have an important question: who wears a foundation that long?

But it does in fact feel great on my combo/oily skin, it does not break me out or feel heavy as most hydrating base products does. On the rare occasion I’m having any red or dry areas on my skin, this foundation does help calm those areas down and conceal them while on my oily areas it helps controlling the oil.

One of the claims The Body Shop has with this foundation is also that it’s supposed to give your skin a nice healthy glow, a claim that it upholds as I’ve never received so many comments on how healthy and glowy my skin look as I have when wearing this.

I feel that this foundation is the best I’ve ever had the pleasure to use as it does tick all the boxes for what I look for in a foundation.

It also works over sun screen without getting greasy or starting to separate, something which is important for me as I use sunscreen everyday.

Another thing to mention is that i find this foundation suitable in all kinds of seasons. During winter times it protects my skin while in summer time it helps cooling down my skin.

But it might not be everyone’s cup of tea.

This has a medium to light coverage and it is not buildable. Personally this is the coverage I prefer but I know others might want a heavier coverage or at least the possibility to build up the coverage on strategic areas.

When it comes to the claim about it being suitable to all skin types, I just feel the need to state that no matter what sort of beauty product your trying out, please do a sensitivity check first and remember that just because something claims that it is suitable for a certain skin type, it is not always true.

I’ve had experiences with products aimed at oily/combination skin that actually either made me greasy or even dried up my skin so bad that I had to use weeks to get my skin back to health.




I can highly recommend this to people who want a natural looking finish and coverage.

It’s a bonus that this foundation comes in a wide range of skin tones. I wear the lightest shade and it is the first time I can say that my foundation shade suits me seamlessly since I am very pale with a cool undertone.

The deepest shade is darker than what I’ve seen in most other ranges, I’m not the right person to give advice on foundations for people with deeper skin tones but this might be a perfect match for someone who has trouble to find a foundation deep enough for them. Hence I’m mentioning it.

The Body Shop also sells shade adjusting drops in two variants, one for lightening and one for darkening foundations. I haven’t tried these as I feel the foundation works well with my skin tone, but it might be interesting for someone else.
