This was one of those foundations that everyone expected to love, after all the concealer is an undisputed hit among the beauty community.. this would obviously follow suit, right? Unfortunately not and I’m yet to see a positive review. As I have with previous foundations I decided to give it the full day test, I think it’s better than a regular review as you actually see it in action and judge for yourselves, what I consider to be poor coverage or longevity you may be happy with. Lasting Perfection promises 16 hour wear which it certainly doesn’t deliver however for you oily combination girls out there it did maintain a matte finish. Unfortunately this finish is mainly down to the cream to powder formula which upon first application immediately falls in to pores and fine lines emphasising flaws.. not what you want. Coverage wise, it’s medium and potentially buildable but I found it caked easily so I wouldn’t imagine you could successfully achieve full coverage which looked good. Colour wise I picked up the lightest my local store had in stock which was Ivory 2, I’m not sure whether there’s an Ivory 1 but if you know feel free to leave a comment. The tone was yellow based which I personally like as it counteracts my redness as is clear in the below pictures of a bizarrely teenage looking me at the start and end of the day.
If you’ve tried this yourself and love it I’d love to know why. How do you apply it? (I use my fingers) what (if anything) do you set it with? Do you touch up throughout the day? What its your skin type? etc etc. There must be someone out there that just loves this product and if you are that person please let us know! If you’d like to see how I got on with it, watch the poorly made video below..
