I believe, for the most part, that my breakouts are purely a result of having Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. Hormonal imbalances are certainly high on the list of causes of those. Tackling them means I have to be cautious of what I use on my face. I am continuously striving to find products compatible with my combination skin.
Drugstore foundations are hit and miss for me. The unfortunate truth is most of them make me break out, extra dry/greasy or oxidise so much so I end up looking orange. That's not to say there aren't any good ones out there, just that I have yet to find any that have worked long term for me.
Upon intial application this looks very nice on my skin. One layer gave me medium coverage so an extra layer was needed to build to full. It applies easily and equally as well with a beauty blender sponge as it does with a brush.
I use this foundation in the shade porcelain over a primer and set with a light layer of setting powder which is applied after the foundation has completely 'dried' to prevent caking.
After approximately 5 hours of wear, unfortunately, I start to look greasy in my T-Zone and the foundation begins to cling to the remaining dryer patches. I found it bunched up and creased around my nose too.
If you have normal skin, this will look beautiful on you. If you have oily skin or are prone to breakouts I can't say I'd recommend this foundation. I felt as though it accentuated the worst parts of my skin after a few hours wear. Of course, different products work differently for everyone but for me, sadly, this was a miss.
Did this foundation work for you?
