Final Thoughts
Medium coverage foundations are all the rage right now and even though I prefer full coverage, I’m testing them out. This one claims to have light to medium coverage, but I think it’s more sheer to light. One layer is very sheer and two layers provides light coverage. I used some of my Makeup Revolution concealer to spot conceal some blemishes. Both of my go-to powders, elf Halo Glow & Coty Airspun, caused the area around the mouth to look very cakey and like it could crack and they don’t do that with other foundations. The foundation with the Revlon Pore Reducing Primer practically made my pores disappear which was amazing. This broke up on my forehead and chin by the end of the day so it is definitely not long lasting. The first day I tried this with the Coty Airpsun, the second day I wore the elf Halo Glow, and on the third day, I mixed this in with another foundation and set it with the Fenty powder and it was perfect. I mixed with the Milani 2-in-1 Foundation. I like that foundation, but I can’t wear it on its own, but the two together are great. I was able to find a way to make this work, but I still don’t love this. It’s a no from me, dawg.
