I am currently on the search for more affordable makeup options and I picked up a few items that I will be reviewing over the next few weeks for you. The new Physicians Formula Healthy Foundation caught my eye mostly because of the packaging.
This foundation comes in 12 shades which is decent but I do think that area could use some improvement because I had a rough time finding my correct shade. This foundation states that it’s supposed to brighten, hydrate, and even out your skin tone while maintaining a natural look. I have combination skin and currently during winter I tend to be a little on the dry side. I will say that I love the packaging on this foundation! It looks just like the packaging Dior uses on some of their foundations. Love the applicator it is easy to use. I think that at $12.99 it is pretty affordable drug store option. I will say immediately I noticed a weird smell with the foundation it kind of reminded me of the smell of paint. I know that sounds odd but that is just my honest opinion. The smell did not bother me at all because it wasn’t an overpowering smell.
Here I am with absolutely no makeup just my regular skin care. I like to truly share what my skin looks like with no makeup on because you can really tell if the foundation makes a difference. I have a very uneven skin tone, I have freckles and I have the occasional breakout.
This is how the foundation looks with no other makeup products on my face. It provides a very natural look but at the same time it is full coverage. The foundation is very matte.
I chose a very natural makeup look with the foundation. I think I did struggle a little with the shade of the foundation I don’t particularly feel like any of the shades really matched me. I like the coverage and I liked how lightweight it was on my skin. The foundation did not feel moisturizing but it did brighten up my skin tone and evened it up. My makeup lasted all day for the most part. After a long day I did notice that the foundation did start to get a little cakey around my nose. I think that if you are very dry I wouldn’t recommend this foundation due to how matte it is. Overall this is a good foundation for the price. If you look below at the closeup it looks very natural and the rest of my makeup lays nicely on top of the foundation. If you would like for me to review any products leave your suggestions below!
