So here’s the deal.
Having said all that – I didn’t like the fact that it doesn’t come with a pump & had to purchase separately. #ridiculous. But do I recommend this? Hell yes. It’s a good foundation that performs well. In case you didn’t pick this up because of the texture – try blending with your favorite primer / moisturizer.
2. Chantecaille Future Skin® Oil Free Gel Foundation in Wheat
However, I just can’t stop wearing this. That’s the scary part. Because:
– Wheat is the perfect match. Hallelujah! It just looks as if I’m not wearing foundation.
– The finish. It’s incredible. Gives a very refined look with medium coverage, evens out the skin, covers pores (to a certain degree) & redness and doesn’t settle into fine lines. Plus, it lasts.
– A gel like texture is so easy to apply & blend. All you need is a little product to cover the face
This doesn’t oxidize like NARS but it’s hydrating, doesn’t clog pores, natural and gives a radiant look. But it wasn’t that good in keeping the shine away. I had to blot my t-zone few times.
However, still it’s worth the money. Perfect for all skin types and photographs wonderfully. I’m beyond happy that I finally found a foundation that looks as if I’m wearing none! It is a staple product in my opinion and highly recommends it.
