Apologies for the scratched-off writing on the bottle, I put it in my make-up bag once and it came off straight away! Not very nice in photos I know, sorry once again!
I bought this foundation because, again, I wanted one without SPF, and one for when I am St-Tropez-Dark-Lotion'ed up to the max! I actually went to the EL counter and got matched for this one, I wanted one that was a shade darker than the foundation I had on at the time. I got home, however, poured a bit onto my hand, and was like OH BALLS THAT IS DARK! Everything always seems lighter in that harsh department store lighting! After my initial shock, I've found that if I mix it with my Illasmasqua Skin Base, as mentioned in my previous post, it actually makes a really nice colour! Not too dark, not too light, just right! And SPF free too so no ghost face! Love the colour in photos!
I tried this once on my face on its own, I'd just bought it and had a super early (3.30am) Megabus to London one morning so I put it on at 3am, so in my defence there was no daylight! I looked at it on the bus and it looked alright, but as soon as I got to London my friend was like "WHAT THE ****"!!!!! Looked at it in her house, and balls, it was FAR too dark! On the plus side, one of her guy friends thought I was turkish, which I enjoyed, but it literally makes me change race, so can't wear it on its own!
I would definitely recommend this to be mixed with Illasmasqua Skin Base, it has a lovely finish. It's not matte or dewy, but in the middle which I really like! I will buy this again to mix, and I also might try this in a shade lighter next time to wear alone, as I feel like I can't give it a fair test in the shade that I have!
Do you have any non-SPF foundation recommendations for me to try please?
