Remember last week when i swore it would not be another week until my next post... Well, thanks to a CRAZY fortnight coupled with ME/CFS i have been stuck in bed with exhaustion since my last post and was advised to stay off the laptop (migraine city). However, i've had some rest and have taken the week off from Uni to recover and catch up with myself again, and tonight i would like to tell you all about the Look Beauty Airbrush Base Foundation in Medium.
I picked this up in January when Look Beauty had their 50% off sale on. I've actually heard very good things about it and was in need of a new foundation so decided to give it a try.
Look Beauty do not actually give away much information about this product on their website. It doesn't say what degree of coverage it is meant to give, nor what kind of finish to expect. All i gleaned from the packaging is that it is suitable for day or night and gives a 'soft focus' finish.
The product is thicker than a lot of foundations i've used. It comes in a glass bottle with a sleek, silver pump top. I've been using 4/5 pumps to cover my whole face (one pump doesn't seem to produce much product) and applying it with my Real Techniques Stippling Brush. Look Beauty advise to apply it with your fingers but i find i prefer to use a brush. Just my personal preference. Once it's on the face it spreads very easily and gives a very even coverage on top of a good primer. I've been using it with either my Murad or New CID primers, although Look Beauty do have their own primers. The colour is a pretty decent match on my NC30 skin.
I find this foundation to be of medium coverage, which can be built upon if needed. The finish on me is slightly matte but not too much so. It smoothes the appearance of the skin and i don't need to use a lot of powder on top of it. It also lasts all day, although if i'm going out at night as well, i usually feel like i need to touch it up.
The only major downfall for this product is the packaging. Although it is very pleasing on the eye and i am a fan of pump tops on foundations (especially ones which unscrew so you can get at the last of the product), this one doesn't seem to work very well and occasionally the pump fails and doesn't produce any product and i have to unscrew it.
The price is on the higher end for a drugstore foundation, but i'd say it's worth it for the most part and would definitely repurchase it at this price. This foundation costs £12 for 40ml and is available from selected Superdrug stores and also at lookbeauty.co.uk
Have you tried Look Beauty Airbrush Base?? Are you a fan of their products?? What are your drugstore foundation recommendations??
