Foundation is a product that I've kinda always stuck to one brand. I found a foundation that worked so thought "if it ain't broke, why fix it?". This was possibly the best option for me as my bank account didn't suffer due to it being a drugstore brand. Since then I've learnt that quite frankly my foundation was broke and I should've fixed it, I have tried so many foundations since venturing out more into the makeup world, and Glo & Ray's Nebulae Foundation* is making it quite high up the list...
When I first got this foundation I was expecting a completely matte finish, due to the packaging being matte. Foundation wise I love a good matte so was eager to try, only to realise this foundation actually leaves a glowing dewy finish, but I was not disappointed. I usually find dewy foundations slip off my face and make me look terrible, but this offering from Glo & Ray actually blended flawlessly into my skin and sat all day long.
This foundation comes with a pump, thank the lord, who ever thought foundations shouldn't come with a pump?! I find that one pump is enough to cover the whole face leaving a natural healthy glow, which I also thought kind of gave the skin a blurred look which worked wonders for my skin. I have the palest shade as I have pretty pale skin and never tan, stupid England, but it is the perfect match for my skin and this foundation will blend with your natural skin tone to give an even colour. I'd say this foundation has a medium coverage, but can definitely be built up to a heavier coverage.
I am always the one who forgets to moisturise before applying makeup, ew gross I know, but this foundation is so moisturising and full of nourishing ingredients that I feel like I don't have to moisturise. Good news for lazy forgetful people like me. I promise I'm getting better though.
I wouldn't think twice about paying £23 for this foundation, I absolutely love it. It's definitely my most used foundation at the moment which is odd because as soon as it hits Autumn I'm usually all about the fully matte look, I guess times are changing. I don't think I'll find a dewy foundation that lives up to my expectations like this one.
What's your go to Autumn foundation?
