As you already know, there are tonnes of new foundations coming out our way for AW season, so I thought I’d share about my personal new love, base-wise. Buxom Show Some Skin Weightless Foundation.
I’ve got a sample with a Sephora purchase several months ago, and totally forgot about it, until recently when I threw in some samples to try while I was visiting my family.
Before I start, I have to mention that now I have a tan (plus fake tan on top to make my skin even more “sun kissed”), and I really love experimenting with my makeup, as I can now wear different shades and colours, which usually don’t suit my skin tone.
The shade that I have is the fifth (out of ten) in the line which is Meet Me Latte ( described as “neutral beige for medium skin tones”) which is still a bit dark for me but I can make it work.
Now, the foundation is absolutely amazing! As the name suggests, it is weightless, I don’t feel it on the face, at all. It is like a hydrating tinted moisturizer. I also like that it lasts all day on me, doesn’t melt or look greasy, and I have tested it in very hot climate. But please keep in mind that I have very dry skin.
My second favourite thing is the fact that you get some serious glow! It is not shiny or glittery, but just a polished beautiful skin. I don’t even need a highlighter.
As for the finish, Show Some Skin gives a light t0 medium coverage; and a natural, smooth and healthy look. Buxom promise that their foundation softens the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and I’d have to agree.
Add SPF 30, vitamin C, tamarind seed, and marine algae extracts, and there you have it – an amazing product!
Plus, who wouldn’t like a lace print on the tube?
It is available from Sephora for $34.
By the way, I really want to try Buxom lip glosses, as I’ve read so many raves about them.
