The texture looks a little weird in the jar and it isn’t smooth like in the product pictures you see for this. It looks a little spongy and thick in the jar but it applies really smooth. It is really light and has a light silky feel when you apply it. It also has a slight powdery finish and feel to it after you apply it so this saves on having to use a setting powder.
Applying this is no different than applying a liquid or cream foundation, but this applies much easier and smoother with a brush or stipple brush because if you use your fingers or a sponge then it tends to crumble and not blend too well. You will want to use a brush that you can dab and buff with. I use a $3.00 e.l.f stipple brush and it applies and blends really well.
A little bit goes a long way. It doesn’t take much product to cover your whole face, and it gives medium coverage. You can certainly build for more coverage if you need it, but for me just one application is enough and gives me the coverage I want.
I live in Southern New Mexico and it is super hot down here in the summers….very sweaty. I noticed that this mousse foundation doesn’t slide and melt right off of my face when I am sweating and when I have to wipe off beads of sweat on my forehead or upper lip I notice that not a lot of product comes off as much as a liquid foundation would. So, I would say that this has a lot of staying power and for me it lasts through the day. I also use cream and powder contour products along with a cream and powder blush over this and everything applies and blends well with this mousse.
-A note about skin types.
I have normal skin with the occasional dry patches on the sides of my chin. I would highly advise using a moisturizer before applying this mouse if you have dry skin because this mousse on top of dry skin makes it look patchy and dry and it doesn’t doesn’t feel too great either. I don’t have oily skin, but a lot of the YouTube beauty gurus who have anything to say about this mousse say that this mousse is actually good option for oily skin types since it is kind of dry. It makes sense and I would take their word for it.
Overall this a medium coverage foundation that applies easily and has staying power. I would highly recommend trying this especially if you are on a budget and want a good foundation.
This product was a personal purchase for myself at the normal retail price. I am reviewing it solely because I want to share my experience with other potential customers. I have received no compensation for my review nor do I have any relationship with the seller or manufacturer of this product.
I so much wanted to love this product.....everyone gave it great reviews and I thought it would be the answer to all my skin woes. But when I received it and first tried to apply it, I thought I'd gotten an old product because it seemed dried out and cakey. This is not a mousse like a whipped, airy, spray mousse (obviously, since it comes in a jar). But if you try to scoop it out on your fingers as if you were putting on a liquid foundation, it beads up and looks like something you picked off an old brown sweater. But...why all the great reviews?!?
So... off to youtube I went. And what I found on youtube was several makeup tutorials for this product using a foundation brush. AHHHHH...(cue the lightbulb moment). Most of the tutorials suggested the MAC duo fibre face brush. A quick search and...$42?!?! Eep. While I agree that in most cases you get what you pay for an quality brushes are an investment, you're talking to a person who had never used a brush to apply foundation before and that was a little steep for something that I wasn't sure I would like or would work for me. Another quick search and....Real Techniques Expert Face Brush (B007O7AZBG At under $10, this was more in my range for trying something new.
And the results... perfection. Putting this foundation on with a foundation brush gives me great results. I have rosacea, oily t-zone, and occasional adult acne, so this is no small feat. It literally gives me an airbrushed look. An added bonus to using a foundation brush to apply your makeup (I've never liked makeup sponges) is that you don't get foundation on your fingers, pressed into your fingerprints, that is almost impossible to completely remove with a good handwashing.
So, if you're thinking about this foundation, go for it... but add on a foundation brush and watch a couple youtube videos. The results will be much better that way.
I tap the foundation with my fingers to apply and then smooth it across my face. You’ll use way too much makeup if you try scooping with your fingers – just gently tap a couple times and then smooth on. It glides on nicely and covers acne scars and other imperfections quite well. It also helps to fill in large pores to give my complexion a much smoother appearance. I tap a little extra on brown spots and larger acne scars and they’re barely noticeable. I’ve tested using a sponge and a brush, but I get the best results with just my fingertips. I always follow up with Dermablend setting powder – it’s a great complement to the foundation.
I’ve found that the foundation stays put throughout the day, even after sweating during a workout. I do occasionally matte it during the day with a little more Dermablend powder to keep away the shine, but I don’t generally need to reapply any foundation (although I may touch it up if I’m going out at night).
It washes off nicely with just a little Cetaphil cleanser and warm water.
