I’ve been on a mission as of late in trying to find the lightest base possible for the hot summer months that are supposedly meant to make an appearance any day now in Ireland. My favourite so far has been my recently reviewed CC Cream by Artistry (link below) however that one isn’t the easiest product to get nor is the cheapest by any means.
I’ve seen a lot of people raving about the Isadora Cover Up foundation and concealer on twitter (follow me: @SooSoBeauty) and so I thought it was about time I put my bottle of it to the test. I will let you guys know that I have this foundation in the shade 64 Classic Cover which is way to dark for my skin tone but I tried it out anyway just so I could see what the formulation and longevity was like.
The foundation comes in this nice squeezy tube bottle that has a pump which automatically gives it major brownie points in my book. The texture of it when I initially pumped it out was very thick but it sheers out nicest when you apply it with a dampened sponge. I haven’t tried applying this with a brush yet but I don’t think I will as I think it will just go on to thick, and why fix what isn’t broken right?
This foundation lasted all day on my skin and it definitely has a medium coverage that can be built up to a high coverage fairly easily. I personally found it nessacary to use a concealer with it but I thin if you don’t suffer from any dark circles (which I do) or blemishes then you can most certainly skip the concealer step with how high a coverage this foundation has.
Finish wise it definitely had a bit of a dewy shine to it that I personally like especially during the summer. I think with a nice powder though even oily skin peeps can get away with using this foundation nicely. A bottle of this foundation retails for 19.95 euros which is definitely affordable when compared to the 46 euros of the Artistry CC Cream and is available in Shaws Stores here in Ireland & at Isadora counters International.
