‘Can’t stop won’t stop’ foundation review is gonna be long, you’ve been warned! I picked this up at @ultabeauty
the day that it launched. Even though I knew it was super matte& I’m not into really matte foundations l; I still wanted to get it to support @alissa.ashley
because they did SUCH a good job on the shade range. I actually had a hard time finding my shade (in a good way) usually w/most drugstore lines I’m either 3rd to last, 2nd to last, or even last in some brands. Which leaves out sooooo many dark skin beauties.& it’s not enough to JUST have a lot of shades, there needs to be a lot of undertones as well. I can say @nyxcosmetics
absolutely did that. I first bought ‘Sienna’, then ‘cappuccino’, then finally ‘Warm Mahogany’ which was my correct shade. (This does oxidize) The claims are that it’s really matte, lasts 24 hrs, full coverage, waterproof and transfer resistant. I’m gonna try to keep this quick, in short; this didn’t work for me. While I love the shade range&longevity; it was way too matte for me. I have combo skin; my tzone gets oily, the perimeters of my face fluctuates between normal&dry. This made me look like airbrushed and like a doll, but at the same time my face felt tight/dry & I felt like it aged my skin. I prefer more illuminating & skin looking foundations, something that gives me a healthy glow. If they came out w/ a more illuminating version I’d be all over it. The coverage is good, I’d say more of a high medium than a full, I did have to use a decent amount of product&go over certain areas more than once. It did build nicely. This also feels very light on the skin which is a plus. As for the waterproof claim, I agree (see video in slide) but as for transfer proof? Yes, initially, (see video in slide also) but as my natural oils came through in my tzone I did experience transfer. I liked this foundation the best w/a primer oil, or mixed w/my @flowerbeauty
‘Light illusion’ foundation mixed in, to give it a bit more life. All in all, if you are extremely oily or you like a super matte face, you’ll love this. If you have normal or combo skin; I say try it & see. I still think it’s a good foundation.
