Oh the struggle of finding the right foundation when you have oily skin..
I have been looking for a great oil free/matte foundation for a while now. I’ve watched countless videos on Youtube and read alot of reviews on blogs and other websites but I’ve never really found one that I actually loved. That was until I saw a review by Jackie Aina on youtube.
I decided to do more research online. I got on www.blackupcosmetics.com and noticed that they have shade matching services implemented on their website and you can get a sample for a really good price. This is actually amazing and easy for people who don’t have access to their products.
After doing my research I went to the store and bought the shade I was recommended which was hc10. At the store everything looked pretty good on my skin after she set it with powder and stuff so I went ahead and purchased it for €35.
The first time I applied it I was not sure if I liked it. The foundation was a little too orange and I actually wanted a foundation that was exactly my shade. As time went by I realized that it was the perfect shade. I just had to wait until it sets into my skin. Everything blends so well together after I conceal, contour, highlight.
The foundation is not dry at all. It’s matte but has a velvet finish. I always make sure I use a mattifying primer and powder to set everything. You can also use a finishing spray like Urban Decay’s All Nighter Setting Spray.
This is the best foundation I have tried so far. My face stays matte for 8 to 10 hours. This definitely gets an A+ from me.
