Over 5 years ago, when I first started learning about makeup and putting together a basic makeup kit, I bought one of my first foundations from The Body Shop. It was the oil-free one which worked quite well on my oily, acne prone skin and I believe I almost used up the whole bottle before moving to others. I love foundations that give a natural, fresh finish so needless to say, I was very curious to try out the Fresh Nude Foundation from The Body Shop that hit stores in India last month. This hydrating foundation claims all day comfortable wear and 24 hour moisturization. Though globally available in 16 shades, only 7 have launched in India but there is still a fair bit of variety.
I would have normally gone for the shade 40 or 45 but since this was accompanied by the launch of the Shade Adjusting Drops that help you lighten any foundation shade, I decided to go with a darker shade, 55 Yukatan Honey, to test out the Shade Adjusting Drops. You might recall seeing this combination in action in my Summer Color Makeup Tutorial.
