The Body Shop Fresh Nude Foundation, Shade Adjusting Lightening Drops | Review

 

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.

MAC Mineralize Moisture SPF 15 Foundation (NC30) Review

They say finding a perfect foundation is like finding that perfect pair of jeans! You never want to part with it. That’s what happened when I discovered this foundation. I have been a cult user of MAC Mineralize Satin Finish SPF15 foundation. But when I went to repurchase it, I was told it has been discontinued and this is the replacement for it. I have been in love ever since! MAC Mineralize Moisture SPF 15 foundation comes in a frosted glass bottle with a built-in pump. I like the new and different shape of the bottle and I personally prefer glass containers over plastic. However,you have to be careful with it while travelling. The pump is ever so helpful in dispensing little amount and keeping it all very hygienic. Consistency is gel-like and a bit runny. Its comparable to the MAC Face and Body foundation. It spreads easily and blends like a dream. I have used fingers, flat brush, real techniques face expert brush as well as sponge to apply this and i find the brushes to be the best option.
