Hello my loves and welcome back to the blog!
Oh wow, another foundation review! This foundation review is on the Wet’N’Wild Photo Focus Foundation. Let me tell you this…. I have had this product sitting in my draw waiting to be used for weeks and I finally have done it!!! This foundation has literally changed my life. It is the best foundation I have used in a very long time. And, it is so affordable! This foundation retails for £5.99!! Only £5.99 for this foundation, ugh wet’n’wild you have a new customer.
Since I am trying to go 100% cruelty free, I was in need of a new everyday foundation; I was using the Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless; this foundation was my holy grail for a very long time and so I was worried I would find a product that I would love as much. But, I was successful.
The Wet’N’Wild foundation is one of the best foundations I have tried; the colour, coverage, application is just great. The packaging is super simple which I really like; it isn’t too bulky or too heavy. I love the fact that this foundation has an applicator too, it makes it so much easier and it’s mess free! No more pumping or squeezing foundation onto your hand or a pallet. Just a simple dip into the foundation and apply straight on the face. Love love love!
The one thing I will say when testing this foundation is that it has a very potent smell; it smells like you’ve just opened up a tub of playdoh and poured in some neat vodka. It is a little intense which did worry me.. Once you start blending this foundation into your skin the smell does fade, it isn’t as intense which is good.
It has a slight runny consistency which I wasn’t expecting, it is no where near as runny as the Maybelline foundation but it is slightly runny… I didn’t prime my face on this day because I wanted to see how the foundation looked on my pores.
When applying this foundation I used the applicator which is attached to the lid. I applied this straight onto my face, doing 2 stripes on each cheek, a bit on my chin and a little on my nose. I used my wet sponge to blend this in and it blended like a dream. It didn’t emphasize any dry skin or breakout.
The coverage this foundation gives is a light base, this was only one small amount though and so I decided to add on a little more to give me more of a medium coverage finish. Applying a second layer didn’t make the foundation look cakey or thick; it applied just as smooth and looked just as good as the first layer. Once the second layer was all blended, I ended up with a glowy medium coverage. I loved it.
The foundation did feel a little tacky on my skin which is completely fine – this doesn’t bother me, it just meant I would have to lightly powder the foundation to get it to stay put. I put my concealer on the usual places (my under eyes, eye lids, nose and chin) and the concealer blended in easily; there was so need to have any hard pressure or blend for a while to get it to blend in with the foundation.
For powder I used my Maybelline Master Fix Loose powder. I applied this under my eyes, on my eye lids and took a large fluffy brush and lightly dusted this over my face. I don’t like using too much powder because my skin can end up looking cakey and thick; not a good look!
The foundation felt so soft to the touch once the powder was on and completely blended; it looked so smooth and almost airbrushed. I couldn’t believe the finish!!
Throughout the day this foundation wore so well; it did start to get oily on my forehead after around 7 to 8 hours of wear. This is usually the case for me as I do have oily skin. All I have to do is blot and it was back to normal! It still looked just as beautiful as the first application!
It left such a beautiful natural finish on my skin I was so impressed. This foundation has easily become my favourite one yet, I can see myself using this a lot!
- Buildable coverage
- Natural finish (even after laying)
- Wearable & breathable
- Feels like your own skin
- Wears for a long time
As you can see from the above list,t his foundation only has 1 con! I don’t think I have ever loved a foundation after first use before but this one is honestly so great. If I could recommend any product to you, it would be this! You guys have to try it – if you do, please let me know your thoughts!!
