My holy grail! This powder works so amazingly at blurring and smoothening out my face! I have the transclucent one. It worked better than my previous powder (Too Faced Ethereal Setting Powder) and I was honestly left very shookt at how flawless my undereyes were! I reach for this powder so much even though I still have other powders.

Foundations -Beauty Bakerie -Cake Mix Demi-Matte Foundation

I did some research before buying Cake Mix, and saw a whole plethora of both positive and negative reviews. However, what swayed me into trying it out were two things. First, the shade range is amazing! There's 30 shades--though the lightest is #59 so they're skipping numbers--in different undertones. Seeing the darkest shade as #1 and the lightest shade as #59 was definitely refreshing. Second, I was swayed by how Beauty Bakerie handled the whole Huda "Easy Bake" mess: with pure class.

I couldn't find a match from the website as most shades seemed to pull yellow, and I'm on the neutral/olive side. There also wasn't a match in the Comparison Guide, so I e-mailed them and told them what my best foundation match is (Tarte Amazonian Clay in Fairly Light Neutral). They recommended #55, which to be honest, still looked kind of too yellow to me, but I decided to jump.

The packaging is beyond cute! Go Google pics of the box, it's adorable.

The foundation itself...now this is where things are a little up and down.

Shade #55 turned out to be a pretty good match for me: it went on a little light but oxidized to a close match. It is also a little too yellow, though not as yellow as pictured on the website. But no worries, that can be corrected with some lavender powder. Plus, it didn't oxidize any further than it did in those first few minutes. So I was very happy with that.

There's definitely a learning curve when it comes to applying this foundation. This foundation needs to be applied FAST. Seriously. Don't try to dot it all over your face and expect it will all blend with no problem. Instead, work one section of the face at a time. And they're not kidding when they say stipple instead of brush as the foundation can and will streak! But using a beauty sponge or a bushy foundation brush to stipple made for a better application. Fingers can even do a decent job, so long as you're not going over your face in a line pattern, but instead stipple with your fingertips.

The finish is more matte than I'd like in a foundation. That's a personal preference. On the other hand, that more matte finish meant that the foundation wore like iron: even in 90+ degree heat, it held up nicely. The nose had developed some shine but that happens with most foundations I use--I just blot it away. Otherwise, no transfers and no smudging.

I tried adding in a couple drops of face oil into a batch and found that it made the foundation go on with more of a satin finish, though with less coverage. The added face oil also made the foundation easier to work with on the face.

The coverage is really more light-medium to medium than medium-full. I tried building up a second coat but found that it began to clump in areas. I think that if you want to layer, layer each section immediately: don't do the whole face and then apply the second coat. Finish one area, apply a second layer if necessary, then move on to the next area of the face.

Powder really isn't necessary with this foundation. If you do powder, be careful as you really can develop a floury (sp?) finish. But I was able to tone that down with some setting spray.

No skin irritation or issues came up as a result of using this foundation. Despite the matte finish, it was very comfortable to wear.

This definitely requires the big guns--double cleansing--to get it all off.

Value-wise, it's decent. $28 for 1oz works out to actually cost less than a few of my other foundations.

So this foundation is still a work in progress with me. I like it enough that I want to try to master applying it and really make it work with me. But as I said before, there's definitely a learning curve.

Overall, I would give this a solid 3.5 if I could, but since I can't and since I'm so pleased with the color match, I'm going to go up to 4.
