So my bobbi brown foundation shade has turned me down after a few months of wearing it. My skin darkens a few tone after getting married (oh yes, I am married to the most awesome guy on earth who doesn't really care about my pimples- he loves me with or without it :D) and BB's warm beige 3.5 kinda made me look like a pimple-breeder pale ghost. So it's about time to search for a new foundation. I have listed out a few foundation such as Skin79 BB Cream and MAC but I couldn't find any product that will calm my pimples down.
I just went in to a drug store and promptly bought Lucent Magique foundation without any proper research. out of frustration. So kamikazi ok.
Let's get down to the review shall we?
This oil free light refined texture foundation has SPF 24++ so to people who tans quickly like me, I wont recommend this to you guys.
This foundation smells like my oil-free Neutrogena moisturizer. The smell is not too strong so I guess if you love wearing something that doesn't smell too strong, you'll love this.
The foundation texture is really light, and it is not thick. It feels like this foundation has a similar texture with water-based foundation. It blends easily on my face and does not dry out quickly when i smudge it all over my face.
Comes in 30 ml pump bottle with a plastic cover - which easily breaks and stains. Yeah, it's already broken. Meh.
Oh don't let me start on this. I don't really like this foundation because it does not stay for at least an hour or two at all on my oily skin! We live in humid and sunny whether here in Malaysia I dont recommend you guys wearing it for outdoor activities because it will melt and stain your hand :| It wears out easily and makes my face look cakey and uneven. This foundation does not give me a good coverage as well. I have an acne-prone skin and I have a LOT of acne scarring so i really need a good foundation to cover all my imperfections and this foundation fails miserably.
Hmm.. Not that expensive. I think I bought it for RM 45++. Honestly, I dont remember. Because I already put this foundation away after 2 or 3 times wearing it.
So, maybe 2/5 stars.
