'On the Spot Foundation'
It been just over a week since i started using 'On the Spot' Foundation by Seventeen cosmetics and i thought id update you on how im getting on, how my skins reacting and what not....
Since its the start of week 2 ive changed my method of applying the product. During week one i was using a stipple brush, and even though this worked out fine, i figured id try out using the Beauty Blender this week. This morning i used this method and it took a little bit more time to fully blend out the foundation but that's ok, i had time to kill...
I applied it at 9:30am this morning before i went on shift at work, i set it with a powder, with a primer underneath but no fixing mist. I finished work at 4:30pm and got home around 5:00pm and checked out my reflection.
Thankfully, this time i was free from the Panda eyes! But i did find that my foundation had worn off a little. Not like, massively, but a little. Im pretty sure im the only one who noticed as i was scrutinizing my face! Also i think the change in the weather has irritated my skin. I tend to get more yellow around the mouth area and pink around the nose when the sun comes out and we have had a few sunny days recently. I reckon a tone correcting powder/concealer will sort that out but i only noticed this afternoon. On the bright side, the spot clearing part of the foundation seems to be working well! That spot i had on my cheek... its gone! As has the one on my chin and jaw...although ones just come up near my eyebrow (weird place, right?) so we'll see how it reacts with that!
I may stick with using the stipple brush to be honest. Im a little too lazy to stand there and bounce a sponge on my face... plus i like less coverage than what the beauty blender was giving me.
Overall, week 1 went well, it lasted better with a fixing mist but again, i think this is due to my face reacting weird to the weather changes. I think a primer underneath is a definite must have. I find, any product with an SPF in it normally applies a hell of a lot easier with a primer under it. I think the SPF makes it a little bit more difficult to blend than a regular foundation. But id much rather have an all in one foundation than stand there smearing all kind of gunk on my face in the morning!
Well thats that! Im happy with how its going, i dont think ill see ant real changes until the end of this week to be honest, but just concentrating on the feel and longevity of the foundation, i do like it. It lasts well and does crease on my face like some other foundations!!
Bring on Week 2!!
Note: I was trying out some of the Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse today and i HATE them, the lightest shade, Porcelain, was far too dark for me. It didnt blend in too well and left my hand feeling very dry. Now my face is sometimes quite dry so there was no way i was sticking any of this stuff on my face!! So if you suffer from dry skin stay away from this!!
