Essence Soft Touch Mousse Makeup

Essence Soft Touch Mousse Makeup

I love trying new foundations. I love the different formulations that gives all sorts of beautiful finishes. I am always in search for ‘the perfect one’ , and in my quest for finding The One, I usually come across the goods, the bads and the uglies.

In my never ending quest, I stumbled across this goodie (Yes, you read correctly, this is not one of the baddies or uglies).

It is packaged in a cute, glass pot with a plastic lid that indicates the colour of the foundation inside. To the touch in the pot, it feels like a mousse, gel like consistency. When applying, it it glides on smoothly.

The shade I chose is a matte colour. Perfect for me, I like to be more matte than shiny during the daytime. It provides medium coverage for my freckled face, not too much that I look unnatural and not too little that I look too spotty, really just fine. But if you want to have that flawless look, use concealer.

When it comes to durability, I won’t say it lasts me the whole day, but my skin tends to get more oily during the day. If your skin does not get oily too easily, then you can easily get more than 4 hours of wear out of it before needing to touch up.

Just remember one thing when using this product. This is supposed to be a velvety soft, lightweight mousse foundation that gives a light to medium coverage. Do not apply and apply until you have a caked-up look. That is not what this product was intended for.

With that being said, if you are looking for something soft and lightweight, then you will love this foundation. The lightness of it what makes me love it most. Wearing make-up without my face feeling like it.

You can purchase these for R69-95 at Clicks and Dischem stores, and they come in a variety of colours.
