NEW IT Cosmetics Your Skin But BETTER Foundation + Skincare
hey friends welcome to today’s video today we’re going to be doing a foundation review and wear test and i’m really excited about this one because i have heard such great positive feedback on this foundation it is the it cosmetics your skin but better foundation plus skin care this wasn’t really on my radar to review but i kept seeing it like popping up in discussions in our facebook group page and then i have a friend here on youtube that raves about it uh so i was like you know what i’m gonna i’m gonna pick this up and i’m gonna give it a try uh so that’s what we’re gonna be uh testing today i will apply it i’ll zoom you guys close in we’ll see if it’s buildable we’ll see if it meets all the claims that it says and then we’ll be checking in throughout the day to actually see how it wears um before we get started a little bit about my skin i would say i have pretty normal um maybe combo skin it’s really it kind of gets oily down here in the center of my face particularly around my nose my nose does produce a lot of oil but i wouldn’t say that my skin is excessively oily i think my biggest skin care you know complaint maybe would be my large textured pores here that is kind of what i tend to like notice most when i’m looking for a foundation is something that is going to minimize those um or at least at least not make them more obvious um what else what else i don’t have a whole lot of texture on my skin aside from that i don’t really have a whole lot of coverage that i need i usually like to look for a medium coverage foundation full coverage is kind of not my cup of tea anymore it just looks too heavy but i do like a decent amount of coverage i don’t like anything super sheer on a day to day basis so that is kind of the four one one on my skin before we get started with the application let’s talk about the claims and give you guys the 4-1-1 on this foundation so this foundation claims to be more than just a foundation it also claims to be skin care it says that it hydrates the skin all day long it keeps the skin very hydrated it has a hyaluronic acid in it it has aloe vera extract in it it has uh vitamins e and b5 it also claims that after two weeks your skin is uh your actual skin when you’re not wearing the foundation is smoother the tone is more even and your texture is visibly refined is what they say and they’re not saying reduced but they’re saying refined and they are actually saying you know that that’s how your skin will look even when you’re not wearing the foundation so this is actually a skincare treatment is the claims that the site makes it comes in 40 shades it retails for 39.
50 and you get one fluid ounce which is pretty standard in foundations it’s a medium coverage foundation that is buildable it does say that it minimizes pores and it also claims to have a natural radiant finish which i really like it comes in 40 shades which i mentioned but the actual breakdown is it comes in four shades for the fair category it comes in seven shades for the light category it comes in eight shades for the medium category it comes in 14 shades for the tan or rich categories what they call it and it comes in seven shades for the deep category so i do feel like they kind of have all the shade rains covered 40 shades and the foundation is pretty robust so i do feel like you know they really covered all skin tones there my shade the shade that i picked up i shouldn’t say it’s my shade because i’m not sure of that yet but um i went to my ulta and this was the closest thing they had in stock to me so um i ended up going with this one i think that i could have gone with slightly darker but we will see when i actually get to apply this this is the medium cool 30 so that’s the shade that i got medium cool 30.
um so yeah let’s go ahead and dive in i’m really excited about it some things that i have heard about this that really piqued my interest is that it really looks natural on the skin that it doesn’t look heavy that has a natural radiant finish you know i kind of lean more on natural matte i kind of like that finish more just because i live in texas and it’s hot so for me longevity is really important in a foundation but if it’s a natural radiant fitness foundation and it wears really well then i’m all on board so we’re gonna test that out and see how it actually works okay so i’m gonna go ahead and do one pump on my hand this is what the foundation looks like i feel like that does look like a promising color for me i have said this before but i do like if i’m gonna go i do like to maybe be one shade lighter in my foundation just because when i go and add bronzer and blush i feel like it really helps kind of give the face a natural highlight if your foundation is slightly lighter so as far as the consistency it is starting to kind of slide down the hand but it’s not real watery it’s not a real watery finish and it’s not like a mousse or a thicker either it’s just kind of a nice uh feels like a nice lightweight yeah nice lightweight almost like a serum-y kind of texture to it uh foundation so let me zoom you guys in closer and we will go ahead and get into the application all right so here we are fresh face i don’t have anything on my skin aside from my skincare that i applied about two hours ago i have not applied a primer i don’t like to apply primers when i do these foundation wear tests um unless i test a foundation and i really don’t like it the first day sorry that was my mirror and i really don’t like it the first day then i will um maybe do another day wear test and i’ll try a different primer to see if that helps but we’re gonna see how this foundation performs on its own so as you can see you know i talked about that texture i mean it’s not like terribly bad i don’t like to complain about anything but you know i definitely have larger pores here so i have to be careful with product that i use just to make sure that you know the products i’m using doesn’t magnify that so we’re going to go in here and apply this in the center of the face and um i’m actually going to apply it to like one half of my face and blend it before i go in because i don’t know if this is going to dry down quickly and i don’t want to apply this all over and then it dries quickly and i don’t have time to actually blend it in okay and i would say i applied a pretty fair amount of product i definitely feel like with this much i should get some you know decent coverage now i’m using the bk beauty 106 brush and i’m just kind of pressing the face pressing it into the face to see this brush will do a lot of work for you if you just press it there’s really no need to kind of start you know doing little circular motions i’ll do that when i’m when i’ve got the coverage that i want and then i’ll go out and blend it uh into the skin oh that’s nice yeah so pressing is really going to help you achieve the most coverage from your foundation if you go in right away and start wiping or working in circular motions that’ll just really blend it in quickly and almost sheer it out a little bit so if you’re trying to get a lot of coverage try this with your your applicator first whether it’s this brush or it’s another brush that you use try just kind of pressing it in first oh that’s really really nice wow that blended in really well i do think the color is a good match oh that’s pretty okay i like that looks really nice okay so this is a pretty i would say a moderate application i didn’t apply a ton but i definitely you know applied a good amount i didn’t i don’t think i applied very little and this is how the coverage looks so again this is bare skin with nothing on and this is with kind of one moderate application of the foundation okay i do feel like you can still see the skin through it but it did a great job of giving good coverage uh i don’t really know that i would really build much from here i think what i’ll do is on this side i’ll apply a lighter application and see how sheer it is and then i’ll build because i do like to see if you can build a foundation some foundations you can’t build you’ll put more on and then it’ll just look heavy or settle in pores okay yeah that’s really nice and i feel like it looks really really natural i feel like it looks natural i don’t really see makeup on the skin it literally just looks like skin like i’m having a really good skin day okay so let’s go ahead and go to the other side and here i’ll apply a sheerer a more sheer application and then we will um we’ll probably get a more sheer coverage and then we’ll go in and add more because i do want to see how it builds and to achieve that i’m going to go ahead and just kind of sheer it out with the brush yeah this color is great i think i nailed it actually what you’ll find with foundations that tend to lean more natural or light to medium coverage is that there’s a little more flexibility in the shade range when you’re working with a full coverage foundation there’s a lot more pigment in the product so you really kind of have to pick the right shade whereas a more sheer foundation you could probably work with like you know two to three different shades that’ll work for you because they’re not as they’re not as pigmented okay all right so there’s an application that’s applied a little lighter um and more sheerly and yeah i definitely feel like i get more coverage here you can still see you know my little this one you i don’t really ever ever cover because it’s pretty dark um you can’t really cover unless you use something really heavy duty which i don’t like but you can still see my skin through it you can definitely see some here it’s still a little pink on my nose i’m going to go back and add a little more and we’re going to see how this builds just a little bit and i’m actually just going to go in with my brush now and we’ll just kind of build it up here in the center of the face around the nose i always tend to have a little pinkness there a lot of us do okay oh yeah that builds really nicely definitely got more coverage and it still looks really natural it’s not settling in my pores looks really natural okay add a tiny bit more here okay i just want to even this out i feel like i went a little heavier here now oh that’s really pretty okay so there we are i feel like this is a pretty this is probably as much coverage as you could get from this foundation or as i need i shouldn’t say that i shouldn’t say it’s as much as you can get because i could definitely try and add more but i don’t really feel like i need any more i think that this gives me the coverage that i would typically want and it still looks really natural and i do see that soft natural radiant finish in the foundation um you still see a little bit of a glow the skin looks hydrated it doesn’t look oh hello i didn’t mean to do that um it still it looks hydrated it doesn’t look flat or matte it doesn’t really look like i have makeup on in my opinion it really doesn’t okay next i’m going to go and apply my concealer and today i’m going to be trying the tarte creaseless concealer this also i picked up when i got the foundation i’m excited to try this one because i have heard a lot of great things about this the shade i got is light medium 25h light medium and let’s see how this is on the hand okay so i think this shade might be a little dark it’s pretty peachy um so i’m going to just kind of i’m going to concentrate it right here in the inner corner and kind of spread it out a little bit and i’m actually going to use my finger first because this feels a little thicker i don’t want to do the other eye i want to do this one first before it has time to dry because i feel like this would be a texture that would dry down quicker okay i’m just going to use my finger the finger is great because you can get right there in that inner rim and i don’t know about you guys but do you see like do you see how green that is i mean the lights are helping me out here but there’s a lot of green there so i always make sure that i conceal really well there okay and then i’ll take my finger and just take what’s left kind of put a little bit on my lid to cancel out any darkness then i’m going to take the bk beauty sponge and press it just to make sure that i absorb any excess because that concealer felt thick but it looks good and actually the color looks really good too i like that okay we’re going to go ahead and apply it on the other side it kind of reminds me um not as thick but still like kind of that same texture of the it cosmetics uh concealer which one is it the one that comes in the squeeze tube bye bye under eyes are the name of it i really like that concealer but that concealer is thick and you squeeze it out this texture feels almost the same not as thick but it feels very similar sticky kind of tacky okay use your finger it gives great coverage though i do feel like it’s a um like it’s almost is this good at coverage it’s the shape tape i think but the texture is very different it’s not as uh dry okay let’s take our finger and blend that out concealer and foundation are the two products that you really want to make sure you don’t over apply because both will both will age us if you apply too much concealer or too much foundation it just magnifies any uh texture that you have on the skin whether it’s scar acne fine lines wrinkles pores okay that looks good all right so now that the foundation has had a few minutes i’m looking it still hasn’t changed much i don’t think that it’s dried down at all it looks about the same from when we first applied it i am going to set it lightly with a laura mercier secret brightening powder i always said under the eyes and i’m just going to kind of set the center of the face as well and let’s see what brush are we going to use i’m going to use the bk beauty 108 brush this is our precision powder brush i’ve been really loving this for powder because i’ve been really targeting where i apply my powder and it’s just a great size for that okay so first i’m going to go ahead and powder my nose i already feel it’s starting to get a little oily and then i’m going to go right underneath the eyes set that then i’m going to kind of set right up here on the forehead and the mouth okay ooh that looks so good i like i like i really really like i really don’t know what else to say but i love it it looks very natural it’s got great coverage but just the right amount not too much the finish looks really natural i do think that it has softly blurred my pores i do i mean they’re still noticeable it’s not like you know super blurring but it definitely softened them for sure okay this is really nice i’m gonna go and i’m gonna apply the rest of my makeup and i will be right back okay so we’re back i’ve got all my makeup on it’s actually been about an hour i just almost walked out of here and forgot to film this part i filmed in jet filming this makeup tutorial and then i did a little work up here and i forgot that i needed to like recheck in with you guys and show you how the foundation looks um so it’s been on for about an hour and the foundation looks great when i was doing my makeup in the tutorial video that you guys will see this look on later i was just really like admiring the way my skin looks it looks very natural the coverage is definitely medium i think that every claim it makes so far um i agree with it’s a natural radiant finish i did set it with a little bit of translucent powder which you guys saw but it looks very natural on the skin it doesn’t look heavy it doesn’t look um like i have really much makeup on at all um the pores do look a little bit more noticeable than they did an hour ago when i first applied it so that is something that i’m noticing as far as the concealer um the concealer i’m not really sure that i’m loving yet because i did have to um kind of clean up some creases as i was doing my eye makeup which you know it’s called a creaseless concealer so i wasn’t expecting that but this is how the skin looks so you guys can take a quick peek and then i’ll be back in later today to show you how things are wearing it is currently 12 48 p.
m but again i’ve already had this on for about an hour so let’s go with like 11 30 as being the time the makeup was applied and then we’ll check in probably this afternoon around four and then again this evening before i wash it off but so far i really like it let’s see how it wears today is a pretty humid day it’s raining outside but it’s not hot so i know that always affects how a foundation wears but so far i like the way this looks hey friends it’s about 4 p.
m so i’ve had the makeup on for almost five hours right about five hours and i wanted to do a quick check in i haven’t touched up at all yet i haven’t touched up at all and i’m standing here in front of a big window so i’m just using natural light and this the uh foundation looks really really nice i don’t feel excessively shiny i feel like the finish kind of remained the same from earlier i don’t feel like it’s fading at all i haven’t had to wear a mask yet but i am about to leave to take the kids to a doctor’s appointment and i will be wearing a mask so i will be able to tell at my next check-in if any transferred or wore off but everything is looking really really good um i did i do think that i’ve had a little um creasing with the concealer though uh and i do feel like the concealer is kind of faded it doesn’t seem to have as much coverage like the staying power of the concealer on me today hasn’t been what i was hoping it would be so i just wanted to give you guys a quick little check in again this is about the um four and a half hour mark or so looks pretty good still looking pretty good going strong all right you guys well i’m gonna take the kids to their appointment and then i’ll check in with you guys this evening before i uh wash this off hopefully things um hopefully it still looks like it does now because i think it looks really good and it hasn’t changed either the color hasn’t oxidized or turned darker on me so it’s a bonus hey friends it’s 8 45 p.
m i’m getting ready for bed here shortly i’m going to be washing my makeup off so i wanted to come up here real quickly take a peek in the mirror and show you how things are looking alright so i wanted to zoom you guys in so you could get a really good look at the skin and see how the foundation and concealer has worn on me throughout the day it has been about nine hours now since first application i did touch up with powder earlier today but i haven’t touched up uh since then i did take a brush just kind of a clean brush and just kind of absorb any shine or oil but i didn’t add any powder to the brush okay so before we talk about the foundation i want to talk about the concealer um i feel like it’s faded quite a bit i feel like there are spots that almost seem to be completely gone it also has caused my shadow and my mascara to uh smudge i can see little spots of mascara here and i’m going to assume that’s because the texture of the concealer is so thick and creamy and emollient that it um you know especially if you’re in a hot climate or you have oily skin it can kind of your skin can heat up and it can cause the under eye makeup to transfer so i definitely see that happening not a huge fan um and i do feel like i applied it in a way that absorbed any excess like i used the sponge to really apply it so i don’t think that i applied too much however i hear so many great things about this concealer what am i doing wrong please let me know if you love this concealer how you like to use it um yeah because judging by today i would say i’m not a fan of the concealer i liked how it looked initially but as far as longevity it’s just not there so that’s my thoughts on the concealer the foundation alright so i am looking at the skin and there are certain areas that look better than others overall i think the skin looks pretty good considering considering that it’s been nine hours that this is more of a natural radiant finish foundation i didn’t really see any claims on the foundation to be a long wearing foundation so uh i should say that i should say that looking at this i don’t i wouldn’t say that it’s one of the longer fun wearing foundations that i own definitely not it looked really really good up until i think about maybe two hours ago two or three hours ago even at my last check-in i thought the skin looked really nice at this point though i do see it kind of settling in pores and around my nose that typically happens with most radiant finish foundations or any foundation that it doesn’t have a long wear claim usually always ends up kind of settling and gathering right here around my nose which it’s not too bad there’s a little bit of it but not too bad i think the biggest complaint that i would have would be how it settled in some of my larger pores here i did have a mask i went to the doctor with the girls earlier and i was wearing a mask for about an hour um and you know i think that it stayed on pretty well um there are some parts that look a little more worn like right here on my nose it seemed to have transferred off which makes sense because that’s where my mask is the tightest but overall i think it looks pretty good i would say this foundation is really ideal for someone with dry skin someone that has maybe more mature dehydrated skin someone that likes a radiant finish foundation if you are someone that really needs longevity out of foundation like you need it to wear and look good for eight hours or more or you have oily skin i don’t really know that this is the foundation for you it’s beautiful it’s very natural looking and it gives a very natural medium coverage um i just don’t know that it’s the it’s there as far as longevity but it’s interesting because the it’s cc cream i i haven’t worn that in a while but that was one of my favorites like foundation cc creams for the longest time i think that is such a beautiful product on the skin but i always uh left the disclaimer that it does not last throughout the day that’s just how the it’s cc cream is it’s beautiful but it’s beautiful for a few hours maybe four or five six hours maybe max but you’re not going to get a long wear like flawless finish all day long and i think this definitely has more staying power and where longevity than the it’s cc cream but i wouldn’t compare it to something like my dior forever foundation or the peach perfect foundation um but those are you know it’s kind of like comparing apples and oranges right because those foundations are you know do claim to be long-wearing and they do claim to have a natural matte finish where this is not really touching any of those claims this is more of a natural radiant medium coverage um yeah so so i can’t really say that i fault it i think that it does stand up and live up to its claims of course i wouldn’t know about the skin care benefits i’ve only worn it one day i need to wear it for a longer period of time to see if i really notice an improvement in my skin after a few weeks but i think this foundation is definitely worth a shot if you are someone that has dry dehydrated skin or you’re someone that likes a natural radiant finish foundation for a radiant finish foundation i think that it has great wearability i hope you guys found this review helpful i would love to know your thoughts on this foundation if you uh wear this foundation what type of skin do you have and how do you feel about it how do you how do your results compare to mine as far as wearability and finish thank you guys so much for watching this video as always i hope you guys have a fantastic day and i will see you all in my next video bye guys
