Loyal blog followers know that I am an avid fan of Paul & Joe Beaute. :3
This is one of the reasons why I remain loyal to the brand.
The bottle is so pretty! :3 It has a pump dispenser that's very handy and easy to use. Never pumps out more than the amount desired.
1. swatch. sorry about messing it up.
3. partially blended.
4. I forgot to take a picture with the product fully blended in, ok? I have many FOTDs wearing this foundation and will take another one next week so you can see what it looks like when it's applied.
I can only say good things about this foundation. I like it as much as I like Chanel's Vitalumiere Aqua. The only downside is the price, which some people may find a bit expensive for them. I don't mind investing on foundations because I think base makeup is very important to people like me, who don't have perfect skin.
And if I may add, Paul & Joe's ingredients are always safe and never break me out.
I also have Paul & Joe's Foundation Protective Fluid Foundation N. There were mixed reviews on it before and that does have a very fluid like texture whereas this one has more of a gel-like consistency that reminds me of my other favorite foundation. Once applied, it gets easily absorbed by the skin. One can use fingers, sponges or brushes and I find that it's almost fool proof.
It feels light on the skin and actually has a mild tingling effect which I really like because of the weather we have in my country. It feels more like tinted moisturizer because it's very light. The coverage is medium; while you might need a concealer to cover dark eye circles and pimple marks it will help hide minor flaws.
The finish is dewy but not to the point that it will make you like a grease-ball. It actually looks rather natural, as if you have very healthy and glowing skin. It photographs well too. I am obsessed with foundations that don't have a flashback as you may have noticed by now.
For those with dry skin, I believe this won't dry or flake on you nor settle on fine lines.
I think I have collected most of Paul & Joe's Foundation and this one if my favorite among the bunch.
