EDIT: 18/01/19 Having lived with this for a bit, I've decided that this should be renamed The Emperor's New Foundation. Put it this way: you know things are messed up when you're using your $15 Marcelle City Cream when going out and grudgingly reaching for your $70 stick when you're at home writing or doing laundry. ORIGINAL REVIEW Well, I shelled out a king's ransom on this ($70 at the local natural apothecary-type shop), having tried a sample that had been dug out into a jar. I really don't have that sort of money to toss around, but I thought this would fill a niche for travel etc/ On the plus side: this has wonderful ingredients, feels lovely going on, is highly portable, doesn't irritate my skin and leaves a fresh, dewy glow. The smell hovers between mould and plants, but it doesn't irritate me particularly. On the down side: nobody likes a fresh, sheer finish as much as myself (I live in fear of cakiness), but this is pretty darn minimal in the coverage department. Concealer is a must (I use Cover Fx, which is quite hard core) as is setting powder. Lasting power is non-existent. To my mind, this would be better served by a name that didn't imply it was an actual foundation but more of a sheer tint stick. I plan to use this up during the winter but cannot justify spending that sort of money on something that doesn't totally pull its weight.
