My take on this product

Skin type – Dry

My MAC shade is NC42

My Innisfree My Foundation shade is: W33 Chestnut 3.1

The foundation comes in a sleek frosty bottle with the pump and secured cap on it. The pump makes it easier to get the right amount of foundation out.  I find the formula very blendable and spreads evenly easily.

Since I picked light coverage and dewy finish foundation I like to use it with my hand. If you choose higher coverage you might want to use a brush. It looks very dewy on the skin and evens out the skin tone. I feel you must use a primer under this foundation so that it won’t accentuate your pores.

This foundation lasts all day long with a little bit touch-ups. I am only concerned to have picked the glow hydration which makes it a bit difficult to survive on a sunny day. Otherwise, I like it for daily use. Also, want to point out here that it does not contain SPF.

What I liked about this foundation is that it has a wide range of formulas with shades available for everyone! I being a dusky skin girl always in the search of natural finish foundations or tints but they are always light for me or way too expensive! This foundation saved me from that expensive stuff! It costs 1550 rupees Way too good packaging and formulas for the price I feel.

Do I recommend this foundation? Yes of course. I found my perfect foundation shade for the first time. Also, it has so many customized options. I am sure if you pick the correct option, you will be satisfied.

Foundations do play an important role in makeup and these beauty brands are coming up with different ideas which allow customers to choose their foundation wisely. Bring it on we love it!
