✿ Essence Cosmetics Soft Touch Mousse Foundation 04 Matte Ivory Review ✿

Hello sunshine!

This has been in my makeup stash for a few months.My local Watsons store put up a section for Essence Cosmetics and the tester was still fresh and new as ever.I tried it on the back of my hand and i am very fond of the textures and finish it gives.I think this brand is from UK and they carry a whole range of other products such as mascaras,eyeliners,eyeshadow palettes,etc.

The price is ah-may-zing for the amount of product your get.Its somewhere between 20-25 MYR (5-7 $) depending on your local stores.

First off,this is a cream to powder foundation.Its in a hard glass jar with a screw top lid.It has an airy,mousse like texture which is really light weight on the skin.

I always use my finger to dab a little of the foundation on my face.Then blending it with my Real Techniques buffer brush.I find that buffing this foundation in circular motion is the easiest way to spread it evenly.I tried using a beauty sponge but it just doesn't spread that well.

I have to work with it fast because it turns to powder once in contact with the skin.Which is why the swatch below has chunky residues.That is just how it looks like on the skin before blending.

Fret not,i can guarantee you this foundation will blend beautifully with the buffer brush.I normally didn't set the foundation with any kind of powder because gurrrrrrl,this foundation is totally matte.Like BAM! NO DEWYNESS AT ALL.

Anyhow,this selfie was taken a few months ago but with the foundation of course.The shade im using (04 Matte Ivory) is a perfect match for my skintone.Its one of the foundation that give you my-skin-but-better look.I absolutely love this foundation!

I started to feel greasy after 4-5 hours but much faster if im out and about on a sunny and humid weather.It has medium coverage because some of my redness around my nose and my cheeks are still slightly visible after applying the foundation.For the scent,no fragrance added i believe.No noticeable synthetic fragrance at least.And i highly suggest anyone with oily skin to try this foundation.It saves a lot of time by eliminating the face powder step.I also love the fact that it doesn't make you broke at the end of the day LOL.

What is your favourite foundation brand?
