METSV says: I am not kidding when I tell you that I have a bottom drawer full of various foundations… Foundations are right up there close to lipglosses and mascaras when it comes to me trying different types. I’ve been pretty much in love with my current foundation, though I’ve cheated on it several times when something catches my eye, but usually something about whatever new one I’m trying isn’t quite right so I go back to my trusted one. But here is a case where it’s been close to two weeks that I’ve used nothing but LORAC’s Breakthrough Performance and I’ve been really happy with it. Funny, I was at work the other day and my coworker just looked at me and said my skin looked “flawless”. I absolutely do NOT have flawless skin in true life! But this foundation sure helps create that illusion. I had to work with this at first because it has almost a latex consistency – but a silky feeling, don’t get me wrong. I have to work in sections and my face has to be well moisturized or else it doesn’t sink in easily enough (for me anyway). Once I’ve applied to my face (you need very little), I smooth it out with a foundation brush and voila – a very natural but radiant finish that’s not shiny or greasy. The foundation just does what it is supposed to – it evens out my skin and gives the appearance of a polished, finished look. The color selection is spot on for me… it is so good to see more and more yellow-based foundations. (I’m pretty fair and I have this in #2) When I was first venturing into foundations, I could never wear anything from the drugstore because every major brand there was too pink and ended up looking ashy and fake – LORAC has natural, skin-tone enhancing colors that just meld… As I navigate my 40’s and experimenting with skincare and makeup that will enhance and protect I am so thankful that there are effective products out there that keep me from plunking down money for procedures… (not that I’ve ruled any out!). An excellent foundation and one worth a try if you’re looking for a satin, natural finish.
