I love trying out new foundations; it’s the one product that really makes me feel like I look much more alive and well, even on the worst days! I’ll admit right now that I am very lucky with my skin, and always have been. I’ve never suffered with spots (apart from the very rare odd one), or real blemishes or anything like that. I feel like I have pretty good skin, and it serves me well with a simple exfoliate and cleanse every now and again.
However, I’m still the sort of person who hates leaving the house without foundation! I think it’s because I don’t think I really suit my freckles, and I feel much more confident when my face looks more porcelain and perfect (rather than fair, and freckly!). I know some people would kill to have freckles, but I’ve just never really loved them on myself which is a shame.
Anyway, this is why I love foundation SO, so much. It makes me feel beautiful when I find one that works for me; and even better if I can get it at an affordable price.
So when I was kindly gifted the Nude By Nature Flawless Liquid foundation * to try; I was keen to give it a go. I was trying out the shade ‘N2 – Classic Beige’. I will say, although I made this shade work for me easily as it was pretty close to my skin tone, it was a slight shade lighter than I expected, so next time I’d probably opt for the N3 Almond!
This foundation costs £25, so for myself personally I would count that more in the high end price range; and so I wanted to know if it would be worth the indulgence.
It’s described as a medium to full coverage foundation with a satin matte finish, and the packaging is just absolutely beautiful. It stands out nicely, would easily catch my eye in a store, and I love that it has a pump.
I will say that I disagree with the coverage description though; I found this definitely be more light to medium coverage at most. It has a sheer quality to it, and glides on easily (almost like a moisturiser, which is nice) and applies nicely, even without a primer. It does definitely have a satin matte finish as described, and although I naturally apply powder over all foundation anyway to set it, I didn’t feel I needed to really with this one.
I found this last me quite well throughout the day, and I didn’t find myself feeling like I’d need to reapply it like I would some light coverage foundations. I’m still not 100% sold on the price tag though if I’m honest! I like the application, and would enjoy using this for days when I don’t want to be so ‘makeup heavy’, but I would then expect this sort of product to be more around the £10-£15 range. If I had the extra cash, I’d probably pay more for my favourite foundation ever, rather than one I’ll use every now and again like this.
So overall, this is a beautiful product, and I do like it and would use it again. But I find the coverage lighter than expected, and the price tag a little higher than I’d like. If you prefer a lighter coverage though, this product will be SUCH a treat for you, and I would definitely recommend giving it a try.
