It has been a very long time since I have wrote down any of my beauty hauls or reviews in any of my posts, but get ready for a lot to come pretty soon. I have been testing a lot of new and old beauty releases and I think you would quite enjoy the products I would be talking about. First of all, let's talk about a new foundation discovery that may have taken the place of my beloved DIOR BB Cream foundation (surprise, surprise, I've never thought this day could ever come). This foundation is the PUPA Active Light Foundation, which has been released this Summer, and I have been testing it properly for the last 2 months or so, and finally ready to state my final verdict.
This time, I am not going to separate remarks to Pros and Cons, but simply state the obvious:
- The packaging is very sturdy and expensive looking, with the glass bottle and a very handy pump.
- As the name might suggest, it is actually a very light consistency, but pretty build-able, thus making it more of a medium coverage if needed.
- It has a very liquid formula (if you have the Chanel Vita Luimere Aqua, it is very similar in consistency to that), so you have to properly give it a shake before pumping it out of the packaging.
- It is easily applied, with both the foundation brush and the hands and gives a very light and healthy glow to your skin, since it has some luminous pigments that bring out the natural colors of your skin.
- This foundation has an SPF 10, which is not that high for everyday use, but is perfect if you are planning on wearing it for a night event, since it plays well with cameras and flash photography.
- This foundation is OIL free, so if you are someone with oily skin, this is a perfect solution for a natural glow without any excess oiliness. But if you still prefer the matt look, a slight dusting of your favorite powder would do the trick.
- The color range of this foundation is amazing for a drugstore brand, where you can easily choose from 14 different shades. My color is 003, Dark Ivory.
- It wears nicely during the day, and stays put for more than 6 hours without retouching. I mainly have the most problems around the nose area and need retouching after a long day at work.
- It retails for around 27$, which is less by half than my favorite Dior one.
All in all, this foundation was the discovery of the year for me, and I couldn't but recommend it to people who are searching for a foundation that gives both, a decent coverage and a healthy - satiny glow.
