I have yet to do a foundation review, however next to brushes my great love is foundations. Every time I go anywhere there is makeup I ignore all the bright colored eyeshadows and lipsticks, and sit down with as many brushes as I can find and test as many different foundations as I possibly can.
I have dry skin, albeit very clear skin. However, foundations are still tricky for me, I have always found it hard to find a good matte foundation that doesn’t show off the dry crackly skin on the bridge of my nose and in the center of my forehead. I spend all day checking in any reflective surface I can find to make sure my foundation hasn’t settled into my crackly bits, thus destroying the most important part of my makeup, the base. It is especially hard to find a cream foundation for any sort of dry skin.
Now down to business. So many companies are jumping into the HD game! Everyone is just slapping the word HD on all their products and people are buying them up like Hot Cakes. Of course when it comes down to it anything can work for HD when applied correctly. But it helps when the product applies like the Ben Nye HD Media Pro Foundation does.
This foundation has a light to medium coverage. It’s not going to hide every imperfection you have, use concealer for that. It will however apply like silk , even out your skintone and make you look like your skin is naturally that even and glowy. For people with reasonably good skin like me, this foundation is a god send. You really only need a tiny bit, I like to apply this with my fingers. It covers any redness I might have and really doesn’t look like I am wearing anything at all.
Most importantly it doesn’t show my dry skin.
The container is the typical Ben Nye cream foundation packaging. The 5oz clear screw top jar with the silver ring around the edge, the ben nye label stamped in the center of the lid, and the info on the back.
This foundation will probably last months with the little amount you have to use. The finish is a silky demi matte, more matte then say graftobians foundation palette and a little less matte then the kryolan ultra foundations.
You do need to lightly powder.
I highly Recommend you go out and give this a try I can see this becoming a staple in my personal as well as professional kit.
