Foundation is something I struggle to pick at the drugstore because I have a very yellow undertone, so even those made for warmer skintones still look too pink on me and do not match with my neck. I picked up the shade D7.W7 Golden Amber and it looked perfect while I was at the store, but then I came home and applied a full face and saw it was too pink/ dark. But even though this foundation doesn't match me perfectly right now {I'm hoping it will once I get a bit of a tan}, I thought I'd still review it as I've got a bit to say.

Packaging wise, I am extremely satisfied. I love that it comes with a pump and honestly don't mind that it is in a glass bottle because almost all the foundations I've tried come in a glass bottle and I'm so used to it. The foundation itself is a nice liquid consistency which isn't too runny. It is light to medium coverage, applies smoothly and blends well during application. The end result is a sheer finish base which looks natural.

Now, even though I know a lot of people love this foundation and it works well even for some with oily skin, it just isn't cutting it for me. Partly because the shade range doesn't get yellow enough. But mostly because it just doesn't stay on for very long with my oily skin. Even when I use a mattifying primer underneath, it doesn't last as long as I'd like before a touch up is required. That being said, I think it is perfectly normal since it isn't a matte foundation. I just had higher expectations after seeing this foundation in the top 5 for some bloggers/ vloggers with oily skin. Another reason this isn't my favourite drugstore foundation is because of the coverage. I prefer my foundation with a bit more coverage so I can cover up my acne scarring.

So overall I think this product will work very well for you if you have normal skin with pink undertones and need a foundation to even out your skintone. 

Overall Summary
Price - approx. €17.
Likes - applies smoothly, blends well.
Dislikes - isn't longlasting, light-medium coverage.
Verdict - Not repurchasing.
Available - Drugstores e.g DRUNI {Spain}, Boots, Superdrug.
