Cool AF Lava Water Foundation
5.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

Skin background: Oily, acne prone, scarring, sensitive/ reactive, large pores, fair with warm-neutral undertones. 
 OVERALL RATING: 4.5/5
 COVERAGE: A little bit of this goes a very long way, and it is definitely a high-medium coverage. I am not sure if I would say 100% full but if you have a lot of scarring or pigmentation that you prefer to conceal I think you can achieve an almost-full coverage look with this foundation if applied in VERY light layers. They say to start with 2 full pumps but I honestly don’t think you need quite that much. 
 FINISH: This is definitely a matte finish, but I also wouldn’t necessarily say it’s a “flat matte”. There is some life and skin-like qualities to the finish which I appreciate. 
 TEXTURE: Although it is called the “lava water” foundation it is not overly runny, but it is not thick either. I would say it’s a pretty average liquid foundation consistency. 
 SCENT: There is some fragrance in this product, but I tend to be more forgiving with makeup (if it is in my skincare then it’s a no go for me because fragrance sucks). It personally doesn’t bother me. 
SPF: None
 LASTING POWER: Holy. Guacamole. This stuff wears BEAUTIFULLY! I am very oily all over my face, not just my T-zone. I put this on at about 7:00 am, went to school for 5 hours which involves a lot of physical activity, then went to work where my store was a complete shit show (don’t you just love working retail during the holidays?). I didn’t take my foundation off until about 9pm. Was it completely perfect and immaculate at the end of the day? No. But I think I can honestly say it lasted better than ANY other foundation I have used in quite a while. 
SHADES: I originally was gifted the shade 15, which will match me great in the summer but was just a tad warmer than I like for the winter so I purchased the shade 12 instead. Overall they have fifteen shades and I do think it would be wise for the brand to expand that a bit more. 
 PRICE: $39 for 1.18 fluid oz which is more than the average amount you get for a foundation, PLUS such a small amount of product goes so far. It’s honestly a great deal. 
 DID THIS BREAK ME OUT?: Nope, so far so clear!
PACKAGING: Alright lets be real here- I think anyone who got their hands on this foundation was initially drawn to it for the packaging. It’s too cute for words. 
 WOULD I REPURCHASE?: 100%
 FINAL VERDICT: honestly I can’t believe I’m saying this, if you look in my profile you will see that I have reviewed SO MANY FOUNDATIONS! But... fam I think this is the one. My holy grail. Great value, great packaging, great wear, formula, and coverage. What’s there not to love?

This product is amazing only if you find the perfect brush for application, not the one that came with the Product which is why I rated this a 4. I use BH COSMETICS 106 Brush for this and It applies super smooth, dries Quickly, doesn't Smudge at all throuout the day and stays Super Black. It doesn't take alot of dipping either. I always have issues with Smudge on my lower lashline and this stays put all day with no Smudging. Holy Grail and Recommended!!

It stays in place and stays black all day. It didn't wear perfectly on my greasy eyelids, but the lines stayed sharp it just looked a little extra smudgier at the end of the day. I thought it looked pretty good! It's a little pricey at $30, but you do get a huge pot of product, and the packaging is adorable.
