I feel like this foundation is a real hidden gem! I don't feel like this foundation or Inglot get enough praise or are talked about enough.
I was using MAC Studio Fix Fluid for quite a while, but I found that it was becoming too drying for me and settled into all of my fine lines around my eyes,forehead and mouth whenever I applied it. I also found that the shades are either too yellow or too pink. (I was wearing NC25/30). I prefer my foundations to have more of a yellow/gold tone, but the studio fix was running a bit too yellow! I also found that it would oxidise during the day and I would end up looking a bit orange, especially around my hairline.
Anyhow..onto the Inglot AMC cream. "AMC" stands for "Advanced Makeup Techniques". It has ingredients such as Vitamin E and has a silicone gel base which helps the foundation to glide on easily.
I'll be honest, I've only been using this foundation for a couple of days but I'm in love with it already. It applies quickly and I only need one layer for a good medium coverage and I find you can build it up in areas where you need it. I use this foundation in MW101 (MW= Medium Warm). It's a lovely neutral shade with slide golden, olive undertones. The shade does not change or oxidise throughout the day. It also doesn't settle into any fine lines and has a slighty glowy finish without. Now this foundation does not contain any SPF which some people may not like. I personally prefer my foundation without SPF because of the "white cast" in flash photography. I normally wear a moisturiser with SPF underneath anyway. (My favourite is Mecca Cosmetica "To Save Face 30+) I set this foundation with Inglot's AMC pressed powder in 51.
In Australia this costs $42 which I think is pretty reasonable.
I'm also looking forward to trying more of Inglots products. The girl at the store I went to gave me a sample of the AMC cream concealer.
I will update shortly once I've been wearing this foundation for a bit longer!
Good medium coverage. Made my complexion bright. Would definitely recommend and buy again. Colour I am using is DW 100.
Fabulous foundation. Lasts much more than average, great coverage and it's not oilly. Besides that, it's easy to find a color sutiable to your skin tone. I sure reccomend to everyone!
This foundation was only OK for me.
THE BAD: It wasn't hydrating enough and made me break out a little bit. I have quite dry skin in winter and even with moisturizer beneath this foundation looked quite dull on me.
THE GOOD: I was impressed with the availability of shades - they have a wide range of yellow toned foundations! I usually have difficulties to find affordable yellow toned foundations for fair skin and LW200 matched me very well!
The package is very good - a glass bottle with the pump which unscrews (hope it's the right word - English isn't my native language:))! I just couldn't throw it away and my "Revlon ColorStay" foundation has been poured into this Inglot bottle :)
I am a fan of Inglot's Cream foundation so I thought I'd try this one. It was a complete disaster. My face went bright red and felt like it was on fine. I took it back to Inglot and was told by the sales assistant that this foundation has had quite a few people come back due to reactions to the silicone in it. Definitely one to stay away from for those sensitive to silicones.
This is one of those foundations where you do double takes in the mirror at how natural and yet beautiful your skin looks. And I did that when I first got it, and actually returned MUFE HD to get this. This, along with EL Futurist and Lancome 24h, is my HG. First off, the color match is perfect and will probably suit me for most of the year as it's got a great undertone and it's sheer enough to blend into the skin, not mask it. I have MW 102. It's also rather cheap compared to my other two favorites, so I like that it's affordable and beautiful at the same time. I chose this over the MUFE because that was actually too sheer and didn't last very long. This lasts, and has a nice creamy consistency too so it feels like skin. I wanted something without SPF for special pictures with the SO, and I am planning on using this.
This may be my HG of foundations! I literally have every foundation known (NARS Syracuse, MUFE HD153, MAC NC42-44, MAC Matchmaster 6, Bobbi Brown Oil Free Warm Honey, Smashbox, etc). My main issue is primarily color matching, then because my skin is so oily and acne prone, I need it to have long lasting and shine control components. I also am showing signs of aging so I don't want a completely matte finish, I want a soft youthful glow without oxidation. I also want pictures including flash pics come out natural and not white on my olive/tan face!
So my eternal quest for the perfect foundation has come to an end!!! This foundation has great coverage without looking caked on, a nice glowing effect without being shiny, good color matching, has not made me break out, good packaging, and an extremely good price to boot!
Update: I still like it but it literally started to separate in the bottle?!?! There were green streaks throughout no matter how much I shook it! I began to hate the smell too.
I really like this foundation, but I prefer to use it for evenings. My go to foundation is MAC F&B for the day and that looks much more natural. If you work AMC though, it can also look natural. I use a wet stippling brush and buff and buff... I used to use my fingers only and it applied too much fdn, and I looked old with it. Even with a wet stippling brush it has very good coverage for me. I have aging, acne-prone skin with old red acne marks. I don't really use concealer after this fdn (maybe before sometimes). And actually my MAC studio finish concealer doesn't really work well on top of it anyway. I have fair olive skin, C1 in F&B, and I use LW300. I think MAC C1 is still a bit lighter shade and yellower than LW300. It is also quicker to apply than my F&B.
UPDATE: I now use it with a wet sponge and that gives it the most natural look. The key is not to apply too much or it will be too obvious (duh!). :) I've stopped using F&B and only use this one. If you keep it for more than a year it will oxidize. But with daily use it won't last that long. continued >>
This is a great foundation I use it ontop moisturizer and the youtube secret ...milk of magnesia (I have oily skin) blend it with my synthetic sigma hd brush and it looks sooooooo good I get compliments everywhere I go ...seriously try it!!! And it lasts all day and I mean ALL DAY with little to no blotting 12 hours +!!! If u have oily skin definitely wear it with a anti-shine or m.o.m though because if not it will come off!! I would say its a full coverage foundation because it's very buildable .. I've tried many foundations from Make up forever to Dior from laura mercier ( which left me a grey undertone) and MAC and many more!!! this seriously was the best!!! And for 1/2 the price!!! TRY IT!!!!
