I remember a few months ago I had tried a sample of this foundation but I wasn’t sure whether or not I should purchase a full sized version. When you squeeze out this foundation the color looks orange and I was hesitant to use it. Once I applied it the foundation blended into my skin. Although it blended in well it wasn’t a perfect match but It is one of the closest foundation match I have ever tried. I am medium dark with yellow undertone.
Unfortunately, the color wasn't right for my skin tone. I was so anxious about the product going out of stock again, I was afraid to wait for samples before ordering. Maybe I'll try again soon.
this foundation shade is beautiful!! it looks really yellow/warm in the package but once you put it on and blend it into your skin, it looks just like your skin. i’m more of an olive undertone so when i saw how yellow it looked, i was a little concerned but it blended out and oxidized beautifully and looked just like my skin.
This is a great product! It has sheer coverage though. I mix with my favorite physical sunscreen for a lovely "no makeup" makeup look on the weekends. The shade match is perfect. I highly recommend!
I love this foundation! I find that I'm between Rio and Baked as Rio is just tiny bit too dark/warm, but I'm hopeful it will be perfect as a summer shade. Even if it isn't, I'm more than happy to buy two shades because the formula is amazing! The quality is really top notch. It's totally non-irritating and applies like a dream. I'm a make-up novice and have pretty much only used Nars tinted moisturizer consistently before this. This makes me look like I know what I'm doing, the finish is just THAT gorgeous. And so easy to blend. I've used it with and without primer, with my hands and with a damp sponge, with and without powder over it and it performs under all of those conditions. It doesn't look cake-y or feel heavy over my spf. I find it to be pretty long lasting and wears gracefully (doesn't look dry or greasy or streaky etc. as the day goes on) without touch ups. There's no noticeable scent and I love that it is fragrance-free and clean. I also love the glass bottle and minimal plastic packaging. Thank you Alicia! I appreciate this thoughtful, high quality formulation and for you coming through for the forgotten shades.
I would love to see swatches and reference photos here on the site. I kept going back and forth between the site and instagram to figure out which samples to get. But I will definitely be back for more!
