CONCLUSION: Great foundation but it doesn’t last: won’t repurchase. I feel like HD is best used for beauty photography or events…not everyday use.
MY PREFERENCES: I’m not a foundation wearer, normally I don’t like the suffocating feel and the fake look that it seems to impart. So I need something that feels light, that’s easy to apply and looks amazingly natural. I have good skin to begin with but I like to even out the redness around my nose and mouth. I have been applying half a pump of HD with my fingertips to sheer it out for lighter coverage.
Looks amazing in person and in photos. No cakeyness, no “fake” look. In fact, aside from beautiful skin, I can’t even tell I’m wearing anything.
Color match is perfect: I’ve been using 115 for my nw20 skin
Pump packaging is nice.
Feels lightweight; doesn’t feel like it’s suffocating my skin
Covers and evens out nicely
Finish is a “my skin but better” look…not matte, not dewy.
Price ($40!), which I wouldn’t shy away from if the product lasted on my skin
Scent: kind of old fashioned, rose/Chanel sort of, but it disappears quickly.
Doesn’t control oil (but also, it doesn’t claim to)
It doesn’t last. As one that is picky about the suffocating skin feeling anyway, adding the additional steps of a primer, powder, and then touching up with powder throughout the day is just too much. The fact that HD doesn’t last more than a few hours on me is what has killed the love.
